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

Cons
Off-the-line power versus V-6 competitors

For 2019, the XC90 has no major powertrain updates but some new standard features and updated option packages. Every model now has updated infotainment software, third-row seating, heated washer nozzles, a 12-volt outlet in the cargo area, and four-zone climate control, among other things. The higher trim levels have a Harman/Kardon premium stereo, navigation, sun shades in the rear side windows, and a tailored dashboard and upper door panels. The headlight washing system and full LED headlights with automatic high-beams are no longer standard on the R-Design and Inscription.

Pros
Astonishingly beautiful,
solid driving dynamics,
safety by Volvo.

Cons
Can approach starter-home prices,
minor powertrain flaws,
base trim lacks the lineup's best features.

Wide variety of models and trims
Standard safety tech

Cons
Not worth six figures at top end
Base powertrain lacks oomph
Rear seats could use more support
Questionable materials in places
