TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe is a little schizophrenic, but we dig both of its personalities. Those with larger families will want to look at the V-6 Santa Fe, while smaller families will enjoy the turbo-powered Santa Fe Sport. With a new hybrid model, the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder has the Toyota Highlander and its hybrid model in its sights.
