The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe is one vehicle that gives its customers plenty of value for the money. You can be surprised how far that dollar you spend on it can actually go. Just like the immediate model it is replacing, the new model scores big in terms of offering the best-in-class warranty, comfort, style, and power. All these elements combine to offer buyers the best return for their spent money.

Let’s be real for a while folks, with features such as a generous warranty coverage, intuitive technology interfaces, tons of standard features, brisk acceleration, and a well-appointed cabin, what more could one ever want! While that may be an overstatement especially considering the availability of other well-rounded options in the market, the fact remains – the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport have so many features that warrant its recommendation even measured against better known crossovers like the Mazda CX-9, Chevrolet Traverse, Toyota Highlander, and the Honda Pilot.

New features available for the 2017 year model include LED daytime running lights, refreshed front and rear styling, and a USB charging port for the 3rd row bench. Safety wise, new features include forward collision mitigation, automatic emergency braking, a 360-degree parking camera, lane-departure warning, and an adaptive cruise control.

See, in the seven-passenger crossover segment, two facts are irrefutable: there are the popular options such as the Honda pilot, Toyota Highlander, etc. then there’re the little known brands, the best example being the model under review. The Hyundai Santa Fe lacks the name recognition that other brands enjoy. But the lack of it shouldn’t be an obvious reason to dismiss it – as we usually do – in fact, it scores better than even those crossover SUVs you think stand out the best.

These features would normally be available as options on other models, however, the new model offers them as standard accessories.
