The Santa Fe Sport is a stylish and well-equipped two-row mid-sized SUV comparable in size to the Chevrolet Equinox and Ford Edge. It has much to recommend it, as well as a couple of annoying shortcomings that prevent it from scoring higher than it does in our SUV Ratings.
The Sport comes with lots of features for the money. It's also roomy, comfortable, fuel-efficient, and stylish. The ride is composed, and the cabin is relatively quiet. The base 190-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine provides ample motivation. Combining this with the very smooth and responsive six-speed automatic transmission returned a very good 23 mpg overall. The interior has a high-quality look and feel; it's not exactly luxurious but well made and nicely finished.
