Hyundai’s Santa Fe is a midsize SUV often overlooked by buyers in a hot segment full of flashy, high quality competitors. That’s not to say the Santa Fe isn’t flashy or high quality itself; in fact, it beats our expectations on both counts.
After a week of driving the Santa Fe, we’re trying to figure out why it lags behind the class leaders in sales. The 2017 Santa Fe Limited is sharp looking, well equipped, and it provides plenty of power. It’s fairly priced in base form (although our tester was loaded with expensive extras, which we’ll discuss in more detail later.) And, even better, the Santa Fe has been refreshed for this model year, bringing some much-needed new features to the equation. In terms of value, the refreshed 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe is hard to beat, though more subjective factors can get in the way.
