Hyundai Santa Fe
The South Korean carmaker does it again with the Hyundai Santa Fe, a stylish and spacious SUV that stands out from the rest of the herd with its appearance, performance, and tech features. Santa Fe- the car that helped Hyundai break into the UK two generations ago- scores big with a remarkable mix of power, comfort, and style. And let’s not forget the industry’s best warranty.
The 2017 Santa Fe may not be as popular as many other six or seven seated SUVs in this range, but it does offer the best bang for the buck, along with features like alloy wheels, bright LED daytime running lights, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control and satellite radio. The 3.3-liter V6 powertrain engine offers a mileage of 21 mpg.
The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe comes in four trim levels: SE, Limited, SE Ultimate and Limited Ultimate. The basic SE trim level comes with standard safety features like antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and front seat active head restraints. You also get a rearview camera and Blue Link, the emergency telematics system of Hyundai, which helps in remote access, emergency assistance, theft recovery and geo-fencing.
The interiors are classy and convenient, with front seats offering good comfort and an adjustability. The second-row and third row have decent head- and leg-room, but it isn’t anything remarkable. Cargo space is 80 cubic feet with the second- and third-row seats folded down, and the hands-free rear liftgate makes loading and unloading even the chunkiest cargo a breeze.
If in-car infotainment is what you are concerned with, the Santa Fe won’t let you down. It’s got a single USB port, but four 12-volt outlets and an auxiliary input more than makeup for it. You get Android Auto and Apple Carplay, Bluetooth Audio, Voice Recognition, and 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
The Santa Fe lives up to Hyundai’s repute and offers excellent value for money. Cozy interiors, a sleek appearance, ample room for cargo and people, along with top-notch safety features like six airbags and downhill brake control are some of the selling points of the Santa Fe. However, there are a few misses, like a sunroof, which customers are shelling out $20000 would appreciate. At this price range, Hyundai is trying to give luxury vehicles brands stiff competition, and even if it doesn’t manage to beat its competitors, Hyundai Santa Fe will certainly make the world sit up and take notice.
