This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Hyundai Santa Fe (12-18) review.

Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

Achieves a decent score in crash tests and gets a reasonable level of safety equipment, too. Security precautions aren't so well catered for.

There's a whopping big boot to load all your prams, garden furniture and mountain bikes and roof rack bars for anything that won't fit inside. Rear seat backs fold for extra luggage space.
