In the universe of three-row crossover SUVs, the force is strong with Hyundai's competition.
The Ford Explorer is spacious and heavy on tech options while returning good fuel economy with its smaller engines.
The Nissan Pathfinder gets better fuel economy and is more spacious than the Hyundai to boot.
The Santa Fe has a cousin in the Kia lineup, the Sorento, which offers a great value with very similar appointments and a very refined interior.
The most ominous new arrival: the 2016 Honda Pilot, which underwent a thorough revamp and now has one of the most spacious, comfortable interiors of all crossovers, and excellent performance and safety ratings.
