Pleasing is the best way to describe the interior

In order to better match consumer demands, Hyundai realigned option packages somewhat for 2009, though all versions of the Santa Fe, including the base GLS, come with the most commonly desired conveniences, such as cruise control.

"All trim levels are well-stocked with standard convenience and safety features," reports Edmunds about the 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe. MyRide.com concurs, saying even the base model includes "realistic-looking (but faux) wood-trim accents across the width of the dashboard, surrounding the shifter, and along the door panels."

According to Cars.com, there are three trim lines: the "base GLS, midlevel SE and top-of-the-line Limited." The GLS model comes with "16-inch alloy wheels, 112-watt AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with six speakers, rocker panel moldings, heated power side mirrors," and much more. Cars.com also notes that an "optional DVD player for the third row, dual climate zones and fan controls for the second and third rows" are available.

MyRide.com says the Santa Fe has "a 605-watt Infinity Logic 7 audio system is now standard on ... [the] Limited" along with a "power sunroof," while the "navigation system is optional." If you want to add the third-row seat and rear AC, Cars.com states, "buyers must choose the SE Touring Package."

All of the features above come at an affordable price. Cars.com indicates that the GLS Model "starts at $21,150," the "SE model ... begins at $24,150," and the "Limited model ... has a base price of $28,100."

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
