    Good Vehicle For A Small Family! — Great size for a small family. Love the look and the interior is very comfortable. The main issue is the roof rack is not very practical. This is my third Santa Fe, I just really like these vehicles that Hyundai makes.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great size for a small family.

    Cons: Very poorly designed roof rack.

    Good Family Sport Ute. — Car has a nice ride, but throttle response is delayed from a stop. It is equipped with the panoramic roof and I don't like that if you tilt the roof open, when you close it, the sun shade slides all the way the closed position. The sunshade should only close when you want it to.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Nice car for the wife to drive. Comfortable and well equipped.

    Cons: Front seats could be wider, throttle response is delayed.

    2014 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.0T Sport AWD Review
    says:
    We recently replaced my wifes 17-year old Toyota Sienna. We were looking for a lightly used (<40k miles) AWD 5-seat compact-mid size SUV, in the < $25,000 range. We tried out the Honda CRV (too much road and cabin noise, too much vibration) the Mazda CX-5 (too little cargo space, center console set back too far making it hard to use as an armrest), and the Toyota RAV-4 (great but 2015 model seats a bit stiff/uncomfortable). We in the end went for the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T because a) it had the same pick-up and sportiness of drive as the CX-5 b) very quiet, vibration free ride c) great cargo space d) lots of safety features like the blind-spot monitoring, parking rear sensors c) comfortable spacious seating d) lots of great info-tainment features that are not (as some reviewers said) that complex to use if one takes a few minutes to read the manual e) very cool HUGE sunroof -basically 80% the roof of the cabin is sunroof f) lack of softness in the steering. A number of reviewers stated that the steering tends to wander all over the highway at high speeds necessitating continuous small corrections by the driver In fact, we did not find this to be the case AT ALL. If the steering is at all soft, it is only in the comfort mode--in normal or sport there is no problem whatsoever. Finally, it is rated very highly for reliability (in terms of repair costs) and safety (in terms of crash-testing). We went with a Hyundai CPO vehicle (which has 100,000 warranty on the drive train) but not with the Hyundai Performance Extended Warranty (we will save $2000 in the bank for repairs instead of giving it to Hyundai when we may never need it.

    Looks/Style Ranked 2014 Toyota RAV4 Limited AWD worse.
    "RAV 4 is still a bit boxy inside, the finishings on the interior remain more angular even in the 2015 model. "
    Back Seats Ranked 2014 Toyota RAV4 Limited AWD worse.
    "Not much difference there"
