Car Design TV has had evaluated the Hyundai Santa Fe several times throughout the past 11 years, and each time the Santa Fee keeps on getting better. When comparing it to the similar class vehicles from Toyota, Nissan, the VW group etc., it is clear that Hyundai is putting in a lot of effort into this category. It shows and it works. The 2016 Santa Fe is a very competitive offer in this segment.
Of course Design wise Hyundai is following suit of it’s main new design language, but unlike the Sonata, which seems a poor deduction of a previous great design, the Santa Fe is actually a great improvement. It is a very modern vehicle with very contemporary and balanced design. It is a thoroughly modern looking car and combined with the now renowned Hyundai quality in fit and finish, the choice of materials and the quality of the powertrain, this is a very good vehicle.
Of course we drove the Santa Fe up our 74 Highway to the shooting location over Lake Elsinore. The drive was very comfortable, effortless. There was plenty of power extra if needed as well. There are only a few overtaking areas on the 74, so you have to plan well and limited time, but it is easy to do in the Santa Fe, fast and with comfort.
As you can see from the 360 degree images, the interior was very sophisticated looking, with again modern and clean design, fitting the category. It is a vehicle to bring the kids to school, do the shopping, but also to arrive in style at an event with. Who could ask for more?
