Slotted in between the Tucson and three-row Santa Fe, Hyundai’s two-row Santa Fe Sport crossover aims at one of the biggest segments in the new-car market today. Aimed at the many car buyers who are more interested in SUVs than sedans, the Santa Fe Sport has a lot of competition.

Yet the Santa Fe Sport also delivers many of the virtues shoppers expect from today’s small SUVs, including a comfortable ride, a generous amount of safety and convenience technology, and a capacious cargo area.
