Ten Second Review
Hyundai Santa Fe Lease Review - Over time the Hyundai Santa Fe has improved in quality and comfort. This latest model has a ton of safety features and a nice interior that can seat five to seven people. The five seat version has a large boot, or you can trade that out for another set of seats. Those back two seats fold into the floor to be able to expand the boot if you need it.
You’ll hear some of the engine noise when you accelerate and you’ll hear some wind noise thanks to the large side mounted mirrors. The diesel engine will transmit some vibration through the steering wheel and through the pedals.
Safety is a key component of the Santa Fe. Seven airbags come standard and you get a vehicle that scored five stars in NCAP crash testing. Stability control and hill assistance also come as part of the equipment.
The interior is quite nice, with a fully adjustable driver’s seat that also gets you boosted up high enough to see the road well. That will come in handy to try to see around the large pillars that are in the back which can block the view as you reverse. The dashboard is laid out well with easy to use controls, and the front and middle seats have a good amount of legroom.
In what was a boxy and boring market the Hyundai Santa Fe is one of the new breed of SUVs that is sleek, stylish and has some real shape to it. With a powerful 2.2 litre 200ps engine under the bonnet this is not just a show-piece but a car that has some serious bite behind it. Manual or automatic transmissions are both available, and with 5 or 7 seat options to choose from you can size your vehicle accordingly. There's enough options to satisfy most sects of the SUV driving market and it comes in a little cheaper than some of the big badge cars out there too which is a great bonus.
