In a recent expert review, the authorities on researching and valuating cars, trucks, and SUVs boldly stated that the new Hyundai Santa Fe had "quickly come into its own [as] one of the most impressive compact crossover SUVs" around. They didn’t mince words either.

First off, they lauded its power, made possible by a hard-charging available 235-horsepower turbo engine. Secondly, they claimed, it's handling was highly enjoyable, driven by an eight-speed auto transmission they called a "brilliant piece of engineering," delivering precision gear changes "exactly when expected." That resulted in a ride both "smooth and controlled," even on bad roads. Moreover, KBB was "impressed" by the SUV's electric power steering's "natural feel" and "good feedback." Topping off the appreciation was a mention of HTRAC AWD (a KBB favorite), whose side-to-side torque vectoring and Normal, Sport, and Smart drive modes helped ensure cornering like a pro.

Of course, Hyundai Santa Fe was also stylish outside and sophisticated inside -- one "good-looking vehicle," to wit, thanks to its new cascading grille, thin high-mounted LED daytime running lights, sleek character line, satin-finish trim, and muscular 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheel options. In-cabin, riders, especially taller passengers, can enjoy "abundant legroom" as well as plenty of headroom, even with the optional panoramic sunroof.

Better yet, Hyundai Santa Fe is "loaded with features." The list is long: it includes 7- and 8-inch display audio systems with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Blue Link Connected Car Service support, SiriusXM, heated and ventilated front seating, heated rear seats, dual front auto temp control, a hands-free smart liftgate, 12-speaker Infinity premium audio, wireless device charging, navigation, and more. Plus, it can boast more passenger and cargo volume than both Nissan Murano and Chevy Equinox -- as many as 71.3 cubic feet.

Bring one of the industry's best standard warranties into the mix -- one that includes 5-year, 60,000-mile new-vehicle and 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain coverage -- and it's plain to see 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe is the whole package.
