SAFETY | 9 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

Good," frontal offset, side, and rear impact
IIHS

Five stars, frontal impact
NHTSA

Safety ratings are top-notch for the 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe; it earns "good" ratings across the board from the IIHS in frontal, side, and rear tests, and top five-star results from the federal government in frontal impact.

Standard safety features on the Santa Fe include electronic stability control, electronic brake force distribution, side and side-curtain airbags, and active head restraints. New for 2010 are rollover sensors for the side-curtain airbags, along with auto-fold backseat head restraints for the outboard positions.

ConsumerGuide says the "styling slightly interferes with visibility to right rear and directly astern." But TheCarConnection.com notes that the Santa Fe is among the better crossover designs for rearward visibility.

Conclusion

The 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe has all the expected features in this class of vehicle, plus an excellent crash-test record.

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.
