2011 Hyundai Santa Fe Comfort & Quality

8.0
Comfort & Quality
With its in-between dimensions, the 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe is a few inches longer than the likes of the Honda CR-V or Toyota RAV4, and Just three inches short of the Toyota Highlander. Yet it sticks to a two-row layout (the third row was discontinued last year), to seat up to five.

Seating in the Santa Fe is pretty good all around, although the seats have odd contouring and rather short cushions; five can fit in a pinch in the backseat, though they'll jostle shoulders. With no third row, there's a lot of cargo space, especially if you fold the rear seats forward. In front, the steering wheel now adjusts for tilt and telescopically on all models.

Trim and interior materials received an upgrade last year, though they're still closer to par for the class than representative of what you see in Hyundai's all-new vehicles. Ride quality is on the soft side, but well controlled, and the cabin generally stays pretty quiet—though with noteworthy road noise on some surfaces

The 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe has a comfortable ride and quiet interior, though its front seats could be better.
