The Top Gear car review:Hyundai Santa Fe
Final thoughts and pick of the range
If the Skoda Kodiaq feels a little plain and a specced Discovery Sport is out of budget, the new Santa Fe looks like it’d be a thoroughly decent alternative. Just don’t go expecting any real excitement – family crossovers typically fail in this regard, and the biggest Hyundai is no different.
It’s no longer priced as a conspicuous bargain, but that’s because this is a properly refined device with a brilliantly realised seven-seat cabin, handy tech and a relaxed gait. It’s an unpretentious SUV with some handsome styling touches and the prospect of a painless ownership experience.
Thought the rampant Hyundai improvement exercise would slow, as complacency set in, did you? Try one of these - it’s a very finely realised all-rounder. Chiefly, it feels worth the money.
