The Santa Fe is very well equipped in terms of standard features, but it doesn't offer the library of options available on some rivals.
Standard across the model line (and on the base GLS) are air conditioning, power windows and locks, keyless entry, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a 120-watt sound system with six speakers and an iPod/USB interface.
Edmunds says, "All trim levels are well-stocked with standard convenience and safety features."
The SE model adds a rear spoiler, an upgraded power driver's seat, leather-and-cloth seats, fog lamps, larger wheels, and upgraded trim, while the top-of-the-line Limited gets dual-zone climate control, leather seats (heated in front), chrome accents, a sunroof, and a HomeLink garage-door opener.
Optional on the SE and Limited is a navigation system with rearview camera. Finally, Hyundai's long 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty erases worries. 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.
