The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe makes premium gains with hybrid and turbo-4 power and a Palisade-like interior.

Pros
Larger standard and available touchscreens
Hybrid models
Potent powertrains
Revised transmission
Luxe Calligraphy edition

Cons

The Santa Fe receives a visual freshening for 2021 that includes bolder front-end styling and improvements to its interior. Three new powertrains are offered: A 2.5-liter four-cylinder replaces the standard 2.4-liter unit, a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder replaces the optional turbocharged 2.0-liter, and a hybrid variant powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor joins the lineup.

Pros
Relative bargain compared to rivals,
relaxed demeanor,
nicely-equipped cabin.

Cons
Nonhybrid models could be more fuel efficient,
tight rear seat headroom,
no third-row option.

The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder comes with front wheel drive, and four wheel drive. Available transmissions include: continuously variable-speed automatic.New Rock Creek Edition offers unique visual flair.

Pros
V6 engine delivers strong acceleration with decent fuel economy
Third-row seating is easy to access
Robust towing capacity
Automatic emergency braking and rear parking sensors are standard on every trim level

Cons
Cargo capacity and small-item storage are below average
Offers less roomy third-row space than some rivals
The top trim's ride quality may be too firm for some drivers

By:

Nissan doesn't change or update the 2020 Pathfinder in any meaningful way. The rugged-looking Rock Creek Edition that was introduced last year is still available. However, those who hope the heritage-inspired package actually packs some legitimate off-road equipment will be disappointed.

Pros
Solid value in this class, cushy cabin experience, notable 6000-pound towing capacity.

Cons
Drives more boatlike than it should, middling cargo storage, small third row.
