I had the opportunity to test drive a 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe a few months ago – and let me tell you – I’m sold! All ‘names’ aside, in my opinion the Santa Fe takes the cake – and you definitely get more bang for your buck!
So maybe it’s my age (no I’m not telling) but I grew up where some people would refer to certain brands of vehicles as ‘generic’. It was as if these certain manufacturers were ‘less than’ their counterparts in some way, or at least they must be – because they were so much cheaper. Let me tell you – THEY COULDN’T BE MORE WRONG.
I’ve driven a good amount of vehicles in my time – and I was pleasantly surprised how much I loved the Santa Fe. It was roomy, easy to drive, not to mention gorgeous (I really think I may need to think about trading my little Jeep Compass in!) Not to mention IT HAS A THIRD ROW SEAT! I haven’t found a 3rd row seat vehicle I’ve loved since my Chrysler Pacifica! We don’t necessarily need the 3rd row all the time – but it’s nice to have it when we need it, not to mention its super convenient for extra room to put your groceries or whatever you might need to in the back (ours pretty much stay down all the time, unless the hubby and all the kids are in tow, or my sister and her kids). It also has the 3D camera that shows you the view
The Santa Fe is super roomy (whether you are in the front or the back) and I absolutely LOVE that there is a sunroof that goes ALLL the way back to the 3rd row seat. (My son really enjoyed that!)
The warranty of the Hyundai can’t be beat either! One of the best in the industry!
