Expert Quotes:

Hyundai Santa Fe: "Good" in all tests performed.
IIHS

Hyundai Santa Fe Sport: Five stars overall; five stars, frontal and side impact
NHTSA

Visibility straight back is fine, but a high belt line and upswept windows partially obscure the view to the rear corners.

Compared to the Sport, the bigger model offers better visibility since its windows run more conventionally flat along the beltline
Edmunds


The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe models score well for safety.

On the technology front, Bluetooth is standard across the lineup. A rearview camera is offered on models with leather seats, where it displays on a 4.3-inch color LCD screen. On navigation-equipped Santa Fe Sports, the camera sends its output to the GPS' 8-inch screen. However, on vehicles without leather, there's no rearview camera at all. Hyundai says it's studying solutions, including a rearview-mirror-based camera, for future model years. A rearview camera is an option on the Santa Fe GLS, too.

Blind-spot monitors and parking sensors are newly available for the 2014 model year.

All models have the usual standard front, side and curtain airbags, as well as a driver knee airbag, for a total of seven. Hill-start and downhill assist also are standard, along with anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control.

The long-wheelbase Santa Fe hasn't yet been crash-tested by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). But the shorter-wheelbase Santa Fe Sport earns top 'good' scores in all categories. It's also a top five-star performer according to the federal government.

 

Conclusion

Blind-spot monitors and parking sensors are new; the Santa Fe earns excellent crash-test scores.

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.
