Features

The SUV can be equipped with most of the comfort and entertainment features you might expect, including a power sunroof, a power driver's seat with power lumbar adjustment, an Infinity premium sound system and rear-seat video. Two notable options Ч a navigation system and a rearview camera Ч aren't offered. Most Santa Fe options are part of packages, which makes it impossible to pick and choose many features individually.

Santa Fe in the Market

With competitors constantly pushing the level of features, technology and refinement with each redesign, I can see how a product planner for midsize SUVs could have a lot of sleepless nights. After driving the Santa Fe, it's clear that Hyundai cares about getting the small things right in a vehicle, and it got enough things right in this SUV that those planners should be sleeping just fine these days . . . at least for a few months.
