Although the Hyundai Santa Fe is by no means cheap, you get an awful lot of car for your money and third-row seats that are more usable than many rivals. Economy is perfectly palatable although performance isn’t sparkling, with the engine proving a little vocal when pushed. If third row space is important, it’s well worth considering.

No matter the model you pick, it comes packed with equipment as standard, a grown-up drive with a very comfortable interior and impressive build quality. This does mean there’s quite a hefty outlay, whether it’s cash or PCP finance that you’re using to purchase this big Hyundai, but if you can stretch to it, the Santa Fe is an excellent choice in a very competitive segment of the market. It also boasts Hyundai’s five-year warranty over most rivals’ three-year setups for extra peace of mind if you plan to keep the car that long.
