Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

Fourth-gen Santa Fe promises to be a great all-round family SUV. Minus the thrills

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.
