Capable roomy SUV

Edmunds.com logo Edmunds.com 9/5/2015 Mohan

The Santa Fe Sport 2.0T surprised me with its high-quality interior and ample cargo space. Driving position offers reasonably good visibility, and the blind-spot warning tech is a welcome addition for highway lane-changes. Performance is not exactly spectacular, but once you get a feel of the engine and its responsiveness, the acceleration can be worked out. The SUV is a bit on the thirstier side, but it more than makes up for it with an abundance of useful features - for instance, the BlueLink can be leveraged for roadside assistance and mileage reporting for service appointments. Options include navigation and a moonroof (neither of which I chose since I trust my phone and the bluetooth connectivity is quick and easy to set up). Second row seating seats 2 adults comfortably, 3 with a bit of a squeeze. The engine is relatively smooth and while not trying to expect it to be an Formula 1 powerplant, should have been a tad more ferocious. Transmission is slick and with an optional stick shift. The rear cargo space (whose door can be opened without the need to stretch your leg, as long as you have the key in person) can easily house a folded bicycle/about 7-8 medium sized packing boxes/2-3 full-sized suitcases.
