The Santa Fe comes standard with a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine making 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. My example uses a 2.0-liter, turbocharged I4 good for 235 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.

All Santa Fe trims use an eight-speed automatic transmission channeling power to the front wheels. AWD is optional across the board. My AWD tester is EPA-rated for 19 miles per gallon in the city and 24 mpg highway. I observed 23.1 mpg.

There's plenty of space for up to five occupants, but cabin materials are low-rent.
