    Wt Hutch 2 месяца назад Hyundai and Kia has been killing it lately and this looks like no exception
  • JEFFREY
    JEFFREY 2 месяца назад william hutchby I agree. Many years ago I wouldn’t even consider one. The looks and reliability was an issue. Now they look pretty decent and the quality has taken big steps forward.
  • Phantom黒人
    Phantom黒人 2 месяца назад Have you guys not seen the class action lawsuit against them for all 2012-2019 vehicles catching fire even after turned off?
  • Mike
    Mike 2 месяца назад @Phil Chao Hyundai/Genesis and Kia are considered some of the most reliable brands in North America and have the best warranties. It sounds like your sister just got a lemon. Even Toyota makes lemons.
  • Joshua Adams
    Joshua Adams 2 месяца назад Thank god for their amazing powertrain warranties; my mother has to replace her motor at 60K miles (Kia Optima). I can't recommend them after that experience, but I seriously hope those motors issues were a one off.
  • Heidern Heinreich
    Heidern Heinreich 1 месяц назад @Phil Chao I don't believe your story. Depreciation after 3 months would be disastrous. And with the best warranty in the business. Why go through all the trouble of selling?

  • Reinaldo Nascimento
    Reinaldo Nascimento 2 месяца назад Nowadays, Hyundai means quality in materials, beautiful interior design and good to drive cars!
  • timmy adam
    timmy adam 2 месяца назад Perhaps but it also means no one wants one after the warranty is up.
  • Jackal of Hadouken!
    Jackal of Hadouken! 2 месяца назад @timmy adam No problem, because warranty is long enough.
  • Jared Shelton
    Jared Shelton 2 месяца назад @timmy adam I think you're thinking of Chrysler, Not Hyundai.
  • Señor Loco
    Señor Loco 2 месяца назад Jared Shelton Chrysler? Good one 😂
  • Jared Shelton
    Jared Shelton 2 месяца назад @Señor Loco What? Chrysler is unreliable..like literally the most unreliable auto manufacturer, it's no secret.
  • Normandy Europa
    Normandy Europa 2 месяца назад I used to own a Nissan Altima and issues started coming up like 6 months in, and the dealer won't service it saying that everything is normally like that. My problem was a whirring noise that goes louder when I turn the steering wheel. (Imagine a dentist drill that goes louder every turn). I traded it in for the 2017 Sonata and it's amazing! Takes a bit of time to accelerate but hey it feels a lot beefier.
  • john smith
    john smith 2 месяца назад @Jared Shelton true, if hyundai and chryslers were the only two options, i'd pick a hyundai any day. any day... but since there are lots of options, including for the most toyota's and honda's part bullet proof reliability, hyundai is a no-no for me. very good looking, that's for sure tho
  • Heidern Heinreich
    Heidern Heinreich 2 недели назад @john smith March.12.2019 NBC news. Honda to recall around 1 million vehicles with dangerous air bags. At least 23 people dead and hundreds more injured. Man oh man. Honda's going down.
  • Heidern Heinreich
    Heidern Heinreich 2 недели назад @john smith Honda ranked #15 and Acura #13 with regards to reliability. Hyundai ranked #10 and Kia #5. The highest American car company was Ford ranked at #18

  • cedrick305
    cedrick305 2 месяца назад Omar Mayar Definitely go for it.
  • David S
    David S 2 месяца назад Yeah, good luck in a roll over. You don't need it.
  • aamirqz
    aamirqz 2 месяца назад @David S Not to mention when it starts to develop creaks, rattles, and leaks.
  • Ayush Malpeddi
    Ayush Malpeddi 2 месяца назад My dad wanted the old Santa Fe because it was over if the first main stream SUV to have it, but he never bought it. So basically he is going to get the new one because of the pano which is insane, but I love this car
  • Mark
    Mark 2 месяца назад David S the 2019 Santa Fe crash results have not been released yet. But from what I remember, every Hyundai with the Panoramic Sunroof has a minimum 4 star rollover rating.
  • D R
    D R 2 месяца назад @cedrick305 lemme know how that works out when it starts to leak or the motor blows. Sunroofs are nice and I have one but I prefer steel roof on a vehicle. I've been in an accident where the roof saved my ass because it was a heavy duty frame.
  • cedrick305
    cedrick305 2 месяца назад D R Nah I’ll risk it I had a good run.
  • LucasHaines
    LucasHaines 2 месяца назад aamirqz creaks, rattles and leaks?! That sounds like my old lady. Just kidding, I like dudes. But still, don’t be a buzz kill. Let people like what they like.
  • shadowzone69
    shadowzone69 2 месяца назад (изменено) The Pano is great. I have one on my Tucson. Got a foldout foam mattress from Costco. Back seats down, boot open, mattress down and pano open makes a great night at the drive ins.

  • alliejr
    alliejr 2 месяца назад CRV and RAV4 are compact, half size down from this Hyundai. The new Honda Passport is the competitor to this Sante Fe.
  • David S
    David S 2 месяца назад Can you say 280hp v6 engine. Passport. Yep. 2020 edition. Never buy the first year of a new model. Even with a old name.
  • Jon Burrows
    Jon Burrows 2 месяца назад David S is it really new though being it is 90% Pilot/Ridgeline/odyssey?
  • Grayson Carr
    Grayson Carr 2 месяца назад Passport will have a better drivetrain than this Santa Fe, but Santa Fe will beat it easily on features. Honda still hasn’t even figured out how to make their adaptive cruise control work below 20 mph on the Pilot, Ridgeline, and Passport, even though the CR-V can do it. If you commute in stop and go traffic, not having that is a deal breaker. Passport probably won’t have cooled seats, heated rear seats (which Yuri didn’t mention), head up display, pano sunroof, or 360 cam, all of which the Santa Fe has, and at a good price.
  • David S
    David S 2 месяца назад @Grayson Carr Well you must be a fighter pilot to need all that. I can do with out all that you just mentioned. I dont do leather, so you can leave out all heated seats, cool seats gizmos. I've probably use cruise control in my life time, maybe 20 times in 25 years of driving experience. Not needed. Pano, shmano. Flip that baby over, your probably dead. I'd get the base model most likely. Have some of that on my newer cars. Really don't use most of it. The one thing I can't be without though. Smart key system. Love the key in the pocket and just grabbing the handle and opening the door. I'm a pretty basic car guy. Oh, can the industry please go back to starting the cars the newer old way. Instead of the old older way with the push button start. Old older tech guys. Lol
  • Ramon Suarez
    Ramon Suarez 2 месяца назад (изменено) True, but I think a lot of people will be cross shopping the CR-V and RAV4 with the Santa Fe with the 2.4 L engine because the actual price you pay at the dealership will be very comparable for all three.
  • john smith
    john smith 2 месяца назад @Grayson Carr wow, are those the features? passport's got same cabin as pilot, i believe what it does not have is pano moonroof and the head up display. and honda sensing works better than most safety features. santa fe's a great car, but i'd never ever get a hyundai instead of a honda or a toyota with my hard earned money. no sir.. .i come and go to third world countries with shotty roads and boy, you can see hyundai's true reliability. no thanks
  • swewunna
    swewunna 2 месяца назад I suppose you could always drive Willys Jeep all the time. Some of them may be over the top but these are useful features in necessary circumstances.
  • dukezap1
    dukezap1 1 месяц назад The Passport is $44K and this car is $28K. Yeah, I'm 100% sure the SantaFe is competing against the RAV4 and CRV.

    Arman it is 2 месяца назад Gosh it's the same in Iran (well expect cars like the Land cruiser but whatever) and the Santa Fe costs around 60k for a brand new highest trim model.
  • Hairi
    Hairi Неделю назад In asia too. Good luck parking or manoeuvring actual big size suv without scratching it here.
  • Tyler Beeson
    Tyler Beeson 2 месяца назад Honestly Hyundai have stepped up their game so much in the past two decades that they’re becoming one of my favorite “normal” car brands with KIA being about the same. They pack so many features for a great price and their warranty is really great. I drove my friends Sonata 2.4 2012 (no idea what trim, seemed like middle) and it drove very well. The transmission was very responsive and had more than enough power for daily use. The interior and exterior styling were also really really nice compared to others in its class at that time. I’d honestly probably get a Hyundai or Kia if I was just going to get a normal family sedan or crossover. (The palisade or telluride are actually so cool. I would totally drive one.)
  • Jack Gorman
    Jack Gorman 2 месяца назад Test the new Mazda CX-5 with the turbo gasoline engine
  • Stephen Hendricks
    Stephen Hendricks 2 месяца назад (изменено) The CX-5 is good looking and has the signature Mazda handling. But each of the Mazda crossovers sacrifices passenger and cargo space compared to their competitors. (The CX-9 is the worst.) The exterior design with an extended hood looks good but forces significant compromises in terms of utility.
  • Bill
    Bill 2 месяца назад Stephen Hendricks True!
  • Sergey Yevtukh
    Sergey Yevtukh 2 месяца назад Bill ...true , but not relevant to everyone who’s buying it, so....design plus performance something people who don’t need all the cargo appreciate more in that case.

  • vandee lore
    vandee lore 2 месяца назад I test drove the CX-9 last year with the turbo engine and it was okay. Although I think the 2.5L base engine is adequate with the size of CX-5. Turn on sport mode and you should have no trouble merging and passing cars on highway.
  • Ramon Suarez
    Ramon Suarez 2 месяца назад (изменено) I liked the Santa Fe, but I test drove the Mazda CX-5 Touring right after that. The Santa Fe wins if you want utility and the controls are more intuitive, but the CX-5 appealed to me more. The interior is nicer, it looks better, and it's much more fun to drive. I imagine the CX-5 with the Turbo engine is on another level altogether, but it's out of my price range.
  • Kelsey Chester
    Kelsey Chester 2 месяца назад I have the 2018 CX-5 and I absolutely love it. For this car, it's not about the numbers. It's about the driving experience. Unbeatable in it's class
  • Shiraz
    Shiraz 2 месяца назад @Stephen Hendricks I agree. That extra long hood on the CX5 could have been shorter to give more room and cargo space. FYI I own the 2018 CX5.
  • Stephen Hendricks
    Stephen Hendricks 1 месяц назад @Shiraz Automotive designers have known for about a hundred years that a long hood and short rear deck suggest a vehicle with potency and performance, factors that are especially appealing to many males (for obvious reasons). If you doubt that, take a look at virtually any sports car introduced since 1920. In the case of the Mazda SUV's and the Mazda6 there's another factor, as well. The 2.5L four banger in both its naturally aspirated and turbo applications requires a massive exhaust manifold located behind the engine. That forces either significant reduction of interior space, a much longer vehicle than would otherwise be needed, or in the case of CX-9, both.
  • nicks__rc__garage
    nicks__rc__garage 1 месяц назад The turbo isn't really that impressive
  • Stephen Hendricks
    Stephen Hendricks 1 месяц назад @nicks__rc__garage Depends on what you're expecting. Keep in mind that the Santa Fe is not a true "compact" SUV. It's a Goldilocks size "tweener" at 188" long and over two tons in weight. But Hyundai is marketing it as an SUV for those who think a CRV/Rav4/Forester/CX-5 (or Hyundai's Tucson) is just a bit too small for their needs. Buyers in this category aren't after the "kick" of a turbocharged engine; they just want an engine with sufficient power to move the vehicle in traffic and merge on the freeway. For those priorities the turbocharged Santa Fe is more than adequate. I happen to think a vehicle this size is better off with a naturally aspirated V6 but that's why Hyundai/KIA offers the Sorento closely related alternative.

  • HONDA RULES
    HONDA RULES 2 месяца назад Rented an XL to go to Chicago. It was super smooth, the stereo was great, and this was before I had driven an E63S so it felt pretty fast too. Great car, so impressed with Hyundai/Kia considering what they were 15 years ago.

  • EAL
    EAL 2 месяца назад Honda may be another Nissan in five years if they keep on making the crappy cars they are making nowadays!
  • Mike
    Mike 2 месяца назад @EAL are you kidding? Hondas' cars are still some of the best. The only thing I don't like about them is styling. If I were in the market for an economy car, Honda would be at the top of my list.
  • Bob Fulkerson
    Bob Fulkerson 2 месяца назад Heated and cooled seats at the same time are incredibly useful when it's raining and cold. Damp pants get dried quickly!

    Clorox Bleach 4 дня назад Is it reliable enough?
  • oxouk
    oxouk 2 месяца назад Great review. Some key points though. If you are in smart mode, it adapts automatically to your driving style. Drive sensibly, and "eco" will illuminate, floor it and it automatically will shift to "sport". You also do not have to walk straight at the hatch for it to open, and it also has two speeds, fast and normal. Rear occupant alert is also a fantastic feature, although unfortunate that we need a car to remind us that our kids or animals are left in there. The Santa Fe can also apply the brakes automatically in reverse using the rear collision avoidance assist sensors in the rear bumper. Also you can customize the HUD. Change the color, size, height, pitch, content, and all are saved into the memory seat settings for both drivers. If you haven't checked the new Santa Fe out, you really need to. It's that good.
