2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

The verdicts are in: the completely redesigned 2018 version of​ the Hyundai Santa Fe is​ bigger and better than previous models, boasting more power, bigger leg room, a​ more sophisticated style and an​ elegantly designed interior that reflects a​ thoughtful eye for detail.

The Hyundai Santa Fe is​ regarded as​ a​ "crossover SUV" since it​ is​ built with a​ car's unibody construction instead of​ the traditional body-on-frame construction of​ a​ regular truck. Nonetheless, it​ is​ comparable to​ any SUV out there in​ terms of​ practical, everyday use.

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe blends naturally into the suburbs unlike last year's model, which sort of​ stood out like a​ sore thumb. it​ is​ also more spacious and can now accommodate up to​ seven passengers, especially with its brand-new third-row seating. in​ the past, third-row seating was an​ exclusive feature to​ minivans and larger utility vehicles, but not this year as​ manufacturers have figured out how to​ install a​ third row into smaller SUVs.

In addition, this year's Santa Fe also offers improved fuel economy and power, whether it's the GLS, SE or​ Limited trims. All Santa Fe models offer safety features such as​ six airbags, active front head restraints, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Traction Control System (TCS), an​ Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Brake Assist and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and the government-mandated Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Within the year, Hyundai will also equip all Santa Fe models with standard XM satellite radio and optional Bluetooth hands-free telematics, and an​ optional navigation system will be available sometime in​ 2018.

The Santa Fe GLS has a​ 185-horsepower 2.7-liter V6 engine, a​ five-speed manual transmission, 16-inch wheels, a​ 112-watt audio system with six speakers and an​ MP3 player, a​ tilt and telescopic steering wheel, heated power side mirrors, power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, and a​ roof rack. it​ also offers an​ option for four-speed Shiftronic automatic transmission, a​ power sunroof and heated front seats.

The Santa Fe SE has a​ 242-horsepower, 3.3-liter V6 and five-speed Shiftronic automatic transmission, all-wheel drive, 18-inch wheels, an​ auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass, fog lights, and secondary audio controls on the steering wheel. There are also options for a​ power driver's seat with power lumbar, a​ power sunroof, heated front seats, and a​ rear-seat entertainment system, featuring a​ 252-watt stereo system with seven speakers and CD-changer/MP3 player functions, as​ well as​ a​ 115-volt power outlet.

The Santa Fe Limited has leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, a​ power driver's seat with power lumbar support, and dual-zone automatic temperature control with an​ outside temperature display. Chrome accents on the grille and exterior door handles, as​ well as​ a​ body color rear spoiler, set the Limited model apart from the SE and GLS. There is​ also an​ option for a​ more powerful 605-watt Infinity Logic 7 Surround Sound system with 10 speakers and CD-changer/MP3 capability.

In a​ nutshell, the 2018 Santa Fe has everything that a​ mid-size SUV needs and at​ a​ more competitive price at​ that. Competition among SUVS is​ tight in​ terms of​ power, fuel economy, space and other benefits, but the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe fares well when ranged against other SUVs in​ the market.
