The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe

The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe will appeal to SUV shoppers due to its high-quality interior, refined ride, impressive standard features and a substantial warranty.  US News has named the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe the Best 3-Row Midsize SUV for the Money. 

The two-row 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport comes with a four-cylinder engine; a turbocharged four-cylinder engine is optional. The three-row Santa Fe has a V6 engine that provides plenty of power. Six-speed automatic transmission is standard in all models.  At 20/27 mpg city/highway, the Santa Fe offers one of the best fuel economies among two-row SUVs. The Santa Fe's fuel economy is also good for three-row SUVs, at 18/25 mpg. Test drivers were impressed with the strength of the Santa Fe's brakes and say its steering is linear and direct. 

The 2014 Santa Fe's well-built cabin offers a pleasing design and soft-touch materials. The Santa Fe Sport seats five and has excellent cargo space compared to other two-row midsize SUVs. The three-row Santa Fe seats up to seven and provides long-haul conformability.  The driver seat offers ample adjustment to find a comfortable driving position. Test drivers like that the Santa Fe's second row slides back and forth to accommodate longer legs or more cargo, and agree that the third row is best for kids.  Standard features include a six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, a USB port and Hyundai's Blue Link telematics system. A backup camera is optional on the Santa Fe Sport and standard on the three-row Santa Fe. Other options include an 8-inch touch screen display, dual-zone automatic climate control, blind spot monitoring and rear parking sensors.
