Since 2007, Hyundai has been entrenched in this segment, having increased the girth of its Santa Fe offering from its 2000 debut. By the 2018 model year, the Santa Fe had become one of the more popular midsize crossover choices. With restyled headlights and taillights from 2017, the Santa Fe—both in regular form and its sport-oriented variant (aptly named the Santa Fe Sport)—remains unchanged, which means that you can enjoy the following shared attributes:

Engine Output

With the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe, you’ll rarely have to worry about inefficient engine power for getting you quickly into traffic or switching lanes. The regular version is powered by a beefy 3.3-liter V6, which supplies 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. Even though the Santa Fe Sport is more focused on fuel efficiency with smaller workhorses, it still has a higher-level engine option in a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder that produces 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Safety Ratings

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe has outstanding safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Indeed, comparatively speaking, it is one of the safest midsize crossovers around. The IIHS designates the Santa Fe as a “Top Safety Pick Plus” vehicle, which is the highest honor that the organization gives vehicles. To earn that designation, the Santa Fe attained the best possible ratings in all five crashworthiness tests (“Good”), front crash prevention (“Superior”), and the effectiveness of its headlight illumination (“Good”). Even among “Top Safety Pick Plus” vehicles, the Santa Fe is one of the very few ones that scored the highest ratings in all three categories. In addition, the Santa Fe is rated “Acceptable” in the ease of use of its LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system, which is the mounting system for securing child seats in the rear row.

Overall Value

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe is rich with tech features—even at the base trim level. Starting with amenities like a rearview camera, remote keyless entry, a driver’s knee airbag, downhill brake control, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a sound system that includes a 5-inch screen, the Santa Fe includes even more standard features on the regular version, on which Hyundai adds air-purifying dual-zone automatic climate control, 8-way power adjustability and 4-way power lumbar support on the driver’s seat, HD Radio, and the Blue Link suite of car care services and remote-access functions. Also, Hyundai switches the 5-inch screen with a 7-inch one. Both versions are protected by the most generous coverage in the industry, which consists of a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, 5-year/60,000-mile new-vehicle limited warranty, 7-year/unlimited-mile anti-perforation warranty, and 5-year/unlimited-mile 24-hour roadside assistance.
