Hyundai Santa Fe

(2018 - present)

The Hyundai Santa Fe is a large seven-seat SUV that sits above the Tucson and Kona in the Hyundai family. The current model is the fourth generation, and was launched at the 2018 Geneva motor show before going on sale in the UK later in the year.

The Santa Fe is currently only sold in the UK with a diesel engine, although petrol alternatives are available in other markets.

The Hyundai Santa Fe has received generally good to very good reviews from the UK motoring media, and its overall Expert Rating is very competitive in the large SUV sector. It has received particular praise for its generous level of standard equipment and large boot, while it has been criticised for being more expensive than expected.
