2019 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. Its Competition

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe first drive
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe competes with other mid-size, family crossovers that are popular with shoppers.

Like the Santa Fe, the Ford Edge has a 2.0-liter turbo-4 that’s compelling, but the Santa Fe’s airy interior wins our favor.

The Nissan Murano has an out-there style that’s aging fairly well, but can get pricey in top trims.

The Volkswagen Tiguan is the class leader in restraint, although its conservative interior is smart and packaged well.

The Subaru Outback may have a pokey base engine, but its interior room and wagon versatility is always in style.

Like the Santa Fe, the Sorento will get a diesel powertrain that could tempt three-row shoppers looking for fuel efficiency and an occasional third row for passengers.
