Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Santa Fe Sport’s cushy ride pairs with energetic handling for respectable on-road performance, but where the Sport shines is in its exceptionally well-appointed interior, wide array of available safety features, and price tag. The Santa Fe Sport delivers middling fuel economy, but its ample cargo hold makes up for some of that lost advantage and turns this compact version of the Santa Fe into a truly useful automobile.

Pros
Upscale interior,
agreeable to drive,
a features list as long as your leg.

Cons
Four-cylinder power in a V-6 class,
light on standard safety gear,
hoped-for fuel economy gone missing.

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport still does what good crossover SUVs do best: it delivers flexible space, decent performance, and great value.

Pros
Hits all the right crossover-SUV marks
Lots of standard features
A very good value, then and now
Clever sliding seat
Turbo-4’s minimal gas mileage penalty

Cons
Dull base engine
Gas mileage isn’t its strong suit
Could use better steering feel
4-cylinders only

By:

Pros
Relative value
Lots of available luxury features
Cabin storage
Handling
Seating flexibility

Cons
Off-the-line power versus V-6 competitors
Rearward visibility
Rear seating position
Road noise
Interior quality

The 2018 Lexus RX 350L is an all-new model.The amount of standard equipment on the RX 350L is impressive, but we recommend getting the Luxury trim level. On top of standard equipment such as tri-zone climate control, LED lighting and a power-folding third-row seat, the Luxury trim level adds heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, upgraded leather upholstery, and heated second-row seats.

PROS
Impeccable cabin finished with top-quality materials and construction
Advanced safety features come standard
Wide cargo bay makes it easy to load luggage and groceries

CONS
Optional tech interface is clever but distracting to use while driving
Less overall cargo capacity than competitors
Third-row space is tight for anyone other than small children

By:

Don’t let the RX’s daring style fool you—it’s still the plush-riding crossover it’s always been, but it’s also a technological leap forward from its segment-defining predecessor. A 295-hp V-6, eight-speed automatic, and front-wheel drive are standard; all-wheel drive is optional.

Pros
Quiet operation,
cushy ride,
comfortable for five.

Cons
Alien styling,
miserly cargo hold,
uncomfortable for seven.
