Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The name sounds odd, but the Touareg offers a comfortable ride and spirited performance—something we all can understand. Its 3.6-liter V-6 makes 280 hp and is mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The Touareg is large, comfortable, and solid—plus it’s equally at home both on and off the pavement. A standard touchscreen infotainment display is functional but dated; the optional adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking, however, are well engineered and effective.

PROS
Comfortable, tech-laden interior
Active safety functions
3.5 tonne towing, real off-road ability
Ride on standard air suspension

CONS
No seven-seat option
Lacks a full-size spare tyre
Expensive for a Volkswagen

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
