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

Pros

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 crossover has some priorities out of order; it doles out fine handling while it delivers a skimpy back seat.

Pros
Looks good inside and out
Taut ride and handling
Available turbo power
Decent value in most trims

Cons
Turbo lag
Moderate acceleration in base version
Cramped back seat
Inferior infotainment

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2021, the most notable upgrade made to the CX-5 is its new infotainment system. A 10.3-inch touchscreen now sits atop the dashboard instead of the smaller 7.0-inch display found on previous model years. The updated system features the new Mazda Connect interface, Mazda Connected Services (a Wi-Fi hotspot and access to remote vehicle functions through a smartphone app), and standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Pros
Luxury aura without the luxury price,
engaging driving behavior,
expeditious turbo engine.

Cons
Base engine accelerates leisurely,
competitors have more cargo space,
tows only 2000 pounds.

By:

New infotainment system with a larger screen.Remote monitoring and control through a smartphone app.Top Signature trim gains some new safety features.

PROS
Keen handling and steering make the CX-5 enjoyable to drive
Attractive and upscale cabin for a premium ownership experience
Optional turbocharged engine provides plenty of power
Quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Base engine's lackluster acceleration
Ride is a little firm for the class
Less rear legroom and cargo room than most competitors
