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
