Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe has a small third-row seat, but delivers on almost every major crossover-SUV talking point.

Pros
No major flaws
A very good value
Excellent passenger space
Well-equipped, across the board
Smooth 6-cylinder delivery

Cons
Stiff mileage penalty for AWD
Six speeds may be too few
Slim third-row space

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe ranked #14 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Santa Fe has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 57 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Class-leading warranty and buyer's coverage
Enthusiastic V6 and turbocharged four-cylinder engines
Fuel-efficient standard engine in Santa Fe Sport

Cons
Meager amount of cargo room

By: 
usnews.com

With only three trim levels and one option, picking the right Santa Fe isn't too difficult. We think the sweet spot is the SE Ultimate, which comes with the comfort and safety features you'll want along with a larger entertainment and navigation system and a surround-sound audio system

PROS
Plenty of standard features for the money
Easy-to-use entertainment interface
Generous warranty coverage

CONS
Fuel economy is slightly below par
Limited availability of advanced driver safety aids
Cargo capacity falls short of some competitors
