The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe has is a great choice for small families, thanks to its strong safety, spacious interior, and great feature set. The 2011 Kia Sorento takes a right turn in its transition from off-roader to all-weather wagon: It’s sized right, timed right, and packaged right.
