The stylish looks of the 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe won over reviewers across the board.

According to Cars.com, the 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe is considered a crossover "because of its unibody construction that combines the body and frame in one piece," while giving "the Santa Fe the ride and handling characteristics of a sedan rather than a truck."

The 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe returns in the larger, prettier form it adopted in 2007. "The Santa Fe was upgraded to a midsize [crossover] model from its previous compact size" and that it has a "more-aggressive look,” says Cars.com.

Hyundai gets kudos for looking "more and more like refined machines and less like the plasticky econoboxes the company put out in the 1980s and '90s,” says Cars.com, adding that it has "lines that flow gracefully into each other."

ConsumerGuide says the "styling slightly interferes with visibility to right rear and directly astern," while MyRide.com notes that "it has more the profile of a sporty station wagon than that of a traditional body-on-frame SUV." Cars.com likes the body style since it is "more aerodynamic, with a lower coefficient of drag."

Conclusion

Think of the 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe as a fashionable everyday wear; you won’t stand out, but you’ll fit in nicely no matter where you go.

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.
