The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe splits its identity in two: the three-row ute goes V-6 only, while the five-passenger Sport leans on turbo power, a flexible second-row seat and a cushy ride to make its best case ever. The Ford Explorer trades some trail-riding and towing for on-road driving lessons, and comes out fluent.
