TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe is a little schizophrenic, but we dig both of its personalities. Those with larger families will want to look at the V-6 Santa Fe, while smaller families will enjoy the turbo-powered Santa Fe Sport. The 2014 Kia Sorento gets a quick fix for its minor flaws: they brighten the cabin and soften the ride.
