2016 Hyundai Santa Fe – Review and Road Test

Having recast itself as a mid-size contender the Hyundai Santa Fe would love to join the SUV elite, slotting in next to veterans like the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Ford Explorer, and Nissan Pathfinder. Does the Santa Fe deserve a place amid that lofty group? We investigate in this review.

If that’s his kid, WIN

j ross says:

I rented this vehicle over the weekend, I believe it was a 2016. Not my cup of tea, maybe bc I’m used to driving a sports car. Very spacious and the visibility was really good.

Serhiy L says:

In Ukraine the price is 60000 USD ))) Good price )))

3:01 “Fuel economy sits in the mid-20s on the freeway”. Really? Americans need to start demanding better engines. Europe gets a 2.2 liter diesel with 197 hp and 322 lb ft of torque. It’s not as quick as the V6 but it gets almost 44 mpg on the highway, and has more torque.

I have a Veloster, coming from a civic to a hyundai, I couldn’t be more happier. Great looking cars and they are such good cars

classiccarz says:

Why is the reviewer smiling as he’s banging his head against the ceiling? Oh, and my dealership doesn’t offer anything but the AWD sport, so the one they chose here (V6 with 3rd row seating) is an oddball on the market

SetPixels says:

Hyundai is pronounced like “Hunday like Sunday” according to the mfgr.

Evan Landry says:

One thing that doesnt make sense to me is why the air controls are in the third row. Maybe its so that kids cant change them but cant you just lock the temp? Or maybe its so that the third row passengers dont feel left out? I dont know… If any Santa Fe owner could tell me if its hard to reach or something cause it looks kinda dumb to me to have it in the back…. And also, is it quiet?

Water leaking issue in korea!

WtrDogg20 says:

I have 7 years and thousands and thousands of Miles with a Hyundai Accent 2007, and that car has been one of the best purchases I have made in my life.
As a matter of fact, I am also a Honda ower (CR-V and I had a Civic), so you can figure out what is the level of quality and realiability I am use to.

northstar1950 says:

Who are these “Neesan” people are they any relation to Nissan?

Boris Terekidi says:

Wha! 10 year 100,000 mile (160,000 km) warranty. IMPRESSIVE!

TheLion415 says:

Great video!

Serg Jota says:

is the same kia sorrento

Khalid Alfadli says:

What are the benefits to body-on-frame construction? The primary one is that body-on-frame vehicles are better at off-roading and hauling, because their design makes them highly resistant to twisting forces, the kind you’ll experience when you’re crawling over rocks, for example, or when you’ve loaded heavy items into your vehicle’s cargo area. Body-on-frame vehicles also tend to be cheaper to build and cheaper to repair, if you get into an accident.

Peter Lascan says:

The best SUV I bought in my 50 years….

Michael Y. says:

Well, the Santa Fe for America is built in Alabama, USA not in Korea. Also, U.S market Hyundai vehicles are usually better built than Korean market Hyundai Vehicles.

David Knows says:

Is there a second row middle seat?

김세영 says:

The water comes in the trunk.

omar khan says:

1:29 Fine! I’ll go to my local hyundai dealership and bring some kung pao sauce, coffee, and food coloring. I’l lpour it on the seats!

aibbincubus says:

Killer video man!! I cycle on PCH very often and I instantly recognized the scenery. You’re videos are always so cool and FUN to watch without a doubt. I almost get happy when I see a new video by you in my youtube subscriptions. Keep up the amazing work man!!

ShermanMR2 says:

You always do great videos. Love your creativeness.


This is grand Santa Fe

Philly 76 says:

I might consider the sport one

booksyn says:

I test drove a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe and fell in love with it! The 2013 redesign is a love-hate for me, so If i ever decided to get one, it most likely be a 2nd generation 2007-2012. There was a 2013 Santa Fe in metallic orange, or copper, as the owner’s manual would probably deem it, on display at my local mall and it was stunning, but I don’t want a car who’s styling I like only part-time. 2nd gen is a definite possibility.

I dont have an IPhone. I have a Lumia!!!

Tech Defender says:

Should I get this or the dodge Durango? For overall

Key Hyundai CT says:

Wow, great video. As a Hyundai dealer in Ct, it seems like Hyundai shot this commercial and not KBB…but we’ll take it! “thoughtful design, attractive styling, formidable opponent wearing a Hyundai badge.” I’m blushing….

Peter Lascan says:

false hyundais are all well built any where u moron.
