Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2020, the Santa Fe lineup receives minor updates that mainly include reshuffled content. The base SE and mid-level SEL models add a standard Rear Occupant Alert that reminds owners to check the back seat. The SEL also gets more standard driver assists (blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, and more). All SEL models with the Convenience package now have wireless charging for phones. The top-tier Limited model now has premium doorsills, dark-chrome exterior trim, and a new Blind-View Monitor.

Pros
Excellent value versus rivals, enjoyable to drive daily, eminently practical cabin.

Cons
Not particularly quick, ho-hum interior design and materials, mediocre fuel economy.
