This is the size vehicle I’m looking @ as my next car. Not sure whether to go higher scale such as the Lexus Rx. Am also thinking of the Ford Edge Sport. Maybe the Lincoln version of the Edge (not crazy about the front end styling though). This may be too low end for what I’m looking for.

dave houston says:

32000 big ones for that lol no thanks

newdroidexp says:

keep up these review! you really make this channel everything that it is

Oceanic Flight says:

I see you have a video for the GMC Terrain but you dont go into detail with it like your other videos. Will you soon be doing a in depth video for the 2017? I’m thinking of buying one and would like your opinion.

50hellkat2 says:

Its a van

komma jason says:

hyundai cars have engine problem…

NS says:

will you be reviewing the new Armanda when it release?

HDaviator says:

Looks identical to the Ford escape, just a bit longer.

I bought a 2012 Honda pilot with 50000km on it and traded it in for a 2017 santa fe xl after 1 month. The VCM was jerky and bogged on the highway at cruising speed, airbag trouble light was coming on periodically and for nearly $30000 was not worth the money! The Santa fe drives smoother, has 40 more hp! with
.3 liters less engine more safety features that actually work, all for only $8100 more. Should mention it’s an ex rental with 22000km on it. Lots of em out there in BC right now, saved over $8000 from new. Don’t let the ex rental thing scare you either, it’s not crazy kids driving these things. Ours was in almost immaculate shape. I recommend Maple Ridge Hyundai, they gave me best deal on the pilot, was even almost $100 more than we paid for it including tax!

Landon Thomas says:

If you live in BC, why do all the cars you review have Ontario plates on them?

Chris Burke says:

I’m trying to figure out.. does the XL come with apple carplay? On their site, it’s pretty much the only vehicle in their lineup not listed. I know you say it does in this video, but you don’t show it, so I’m wondering if that was maybe a goof on your part?

JB Berserker says:

Sunday – Hunday = Hyundai

gghuang says:

does Hyundai Santa Fe XL have SPAS (smart parking assist system)?

Jonathan Bautista says:

The front is almost the same as the Ford Escape 2017

Jean Seguin says:

Have you found a way to switch the odometer on Santa fe xl 2017  from km/h to mph????

Bob Dylan says:

this is the modern day station wagon, with the jump seats in the very back.

SykoChiipmunK says:

Buying this was one my best decisions!! I bought the Limited Ultimate in White! I want a Genesis too. I think I can do it now since I have the space with the SUV because the genesis cabin room is a little tight. Having 2 great vehicles in the household will be good investments for years to comes.

احمد العقوري says:

I can’t say any thing just only I LOVE YOU Mrs (Grand Hyundai Santa Fe)..wawwwwww…just only you made me crazy …wawwwwwwwww

davedavis says:

I feel like Durango v6 is superior in this category

Billy McAuliffe says:

hyonda,?????? you mean Hyundai !!!! what’s the !matter with getting the name right ho yes bad English do you also say neeson for Nissan ???

Barobran92 says:

I really like what they’ve done with the Santa Fe for 2017, my parents have a 2014 Limited and they love it, although I do wish they’d offer the 19″ black rims they offer on the sport in the States in Canada, really cool looking.

Realtime Reviews says:

I owned 2 hyundais one being the Genesis sedan and they have terrible electronics that are very reliable such as heated/cooled seats, head unit back up cameras etc…buyer beware

Wyatt Mullin says:

Great review Zach. How would you compare this to the V6 Sorrento?

Rob Taylor says:

it seems to me Zack is not a fan of Hyundai

Brandon Friesen says:

Hey Zak, just my humble opinion, but I think it looks quite tacky to have all caps on standout things for each car review like “NEW LOOK AND TECH” for this Santa Fe. A much cleaner approach would be just having “2017 _________ ________ Review” It looks like a desperation for views like those cheap used car ads online that say “NO CREDIT/BAD CREDIT FINANCING” in the title. It just looks unkept. But that’s just what I think.

Brian Potstra says:

Great review. Very subjective. We bought the 2016 XL after testing a Pathfinder, Highlander and Pilot, and couldn’t be happier with the Hyundai.

LooxGood says:

Thank you for posting, awesome review. Still remember you from Z95 days in Vancouver. I miss that city! 🙂

Encore 4K says:

This is not the top trim

Anthony Macneil says:

What safety features comes with the top model that’s priced at $48,000???

Vaibhav Sharma says:

which is best journey or santa fe am confused please help

tigerbalm says:


Adam Wright says:

Subaru needs to come out with an all-new Tribeka and wipe the floor with all these wannabe’s.
I’ll still take the refreshed Nissan Pathfinder with 7000 pounds towing, better fuel economy, and a backseat which is tops in class in actually transporting adults.
