Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2017, the Hyundai Santa Fe returns with refreshed front and rear styling that's highlighted by new LED daytime running lights. Inside, there's a 7-inch touchscreen that's standard for even the base SE trim level and an available USB charging port for the third row. On the safety front, a 360-degree parking camera system, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking for forward collision mitigation are newly available this year.

Pros
Strong V6 engine provides quick acceleration
Plenty of standard features for the money
Interior features classy design and easy-to-use technology interfaces
Warranty coverage is generous.

Cons
Cargo capacity isn't as large as some competitors.

The sharper-looking 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe is still a good value for families looking for a three-row hauler—but its powertrain is starting to show its age.
For 2017, the Hyundai Santa Fe has received a significant overhaul. The Santa Fe is the larger, three-row crossover SUV that's related to the smaller two-row Santa Fe Sport.

Pros
Better look for 2017
Still good value for money
Excellent cargo space
Standard models still well-equipped
Strong V-6

Cons
All-wheel-drive penalty is sharp
Could use newer transmission
Third-row seat space is slight, compared to rivals

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe ranks 3 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The Hyundai Santa Fe has impressive safety, comfort, and infotainment features, and it delivers solid performance, though the Sport model's base engine is average at best. The Santa Fe's cabin is full of technology that will keep drivers and passengers safe, comfortable, and entertained.

Pros
Strong V6 engine in Santa Fe
Generous list of standard features

Cons
Weak base engine in Sport models
Underwhelming acceleration

For 2017, every RX 450h comes standard with forward collision warning and mitigation, lane keeping assistance, automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control. You can also now get a front-wheel-drive F Sport model.

Pros
Impeccably crafted and attractively designed cabin
Excellent fuel economy for a luxury crossover
Supremely quiet
Appealing ride and handling balance with F Sport

Cons
Gas savings unlikely to ever pay back the price premium
Below-average cargo capacity
Optional tech interface is distracting to use
Relatively slow acceleration

The 2017 Lexus RX Hybrid ranks 4 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Lexus RX 450h is a midsize SUV that delivers the luxury you expect from Lexus while also providing solid performance and excellent fuel economy. However, its small cargo area detracts from its utility.

Pros
Excellent fuel economy
Comfortable, spacious seats

Cons
Frustrating upgraded infotainment system
Small cargo space
