Hyundai's redesigned midsized SUV is now roomy, stylish, and comfortable. The Sport version seats five and rides well, has a quiet interior, and is powered by a responsive 190-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder mated to a smooth and responsive six-speed automatic. We got a very good 23 mpg overall with this engine. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is also available. Handling is sound, but not exceptional, and the steering feels numb. The well-finished cabin is packed with a lot of standard features for the money. Rear visibility is severely hampered, and unfortunately a backup camera is a costly option. The long-wheelbase, three-row Santa Fe has an available 3.3-liter V6.
