With this version of the Hyundai SUV, the interior is now spacious enough to accommodate a third-row seat (although it's a bit cramped and difficult to access).
Still, this development, along with excellent fit and finish, makes for a more refined and versatile package.
For its class, the Santa Fe also has responsive handling, which is delivered along with a firm but comfortable ride.
A 2010 redesign freshened things up a bit, but didn't really push the envelope.
While this iteration of the Santa Fe remains quite well rounded and competent, we wouldn't call it a world-beater.
