2022 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. Its Competition

2022 Hyundai Santa Fe
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Santa Fe slots between compact crossover SUVs and three-row crossover SUVs in a mid-size segment booming in recent years.

A classic name wearing a new look this year, the Jeep Grand Cherokee looks and plays the part of a capable Jeep SUV.

The Volkswagen Tiguan compact crossover runs large but is relatively sedate in style and features.

Both the Nissan Murano and resurrected Chevrolet Blazer aim more upscale on the inside and with features and options; the Honda Passport takes a rugged turn from the more pedestrian Pilot and CR-V in the Honda family.
