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:

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

The 2018 Nissan Murano ranked #9 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Nissan Murano has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 35 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
High-end cabin
Extremely comfortable seats
Easy-to-use tech features
Fuel-efficient for a V6 SUV

Cons
Poor rear visibility
Slow steering response

By:

The 2018 Nissan Murano adds better active safety to complement its sharp looks and easy-driving nature.

Pros
Sharp exterior style
Comfortable drive
Better safety features this year
Every trim has navigation and big touchscreen
Relatively good fuel economy…

Cons
…but still no hybrid powertrain
CVT doesn’t like to be pressed on time
Lacking upper-level interior touches like wood trim
Style won’t be for everyone

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the Nissan Murano now includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and navigation on every model. Options have been distilled into two packages, with options from previous model years (i.e., adaptive cruise control, heated rear seats) now spread throughout the lineup as standard features.

PROS
Delivers right balance of power and fuel-efficiency
Interior highlighted by high-quality materials and unique design
Front seats are exceptionally comfortable
Spacious rear seats accommodate passengers and car seats with equal ease

CONS
Stylish exterior design creates compromised outward visibility
Can't tow heavy weekend toys like some competitors
Modest cargo capacity limits practicality
