Hyundai Santa Fe
STATUS: Unchanged for 2020 - Hyundai now calls the five-passenger tall wagon the Santa Fe (formerly Santa Fe Sport), while the seven-passenger XL version has been retired. In the XL's place is the new-for 2020 Palisade that has become the biggest and boldest utility vehicle in the Hyundai lineup. Meanwhile, the Santa Fe, which was redesigned for the 2019 model year, is a striking model with a bold grille and windshield pillars that have been kept slim to aide forward visibility. The control panel is straightforward and gadget-free, and has actual knobs and switches for the climate and audio controls, and a real shift lever for changing gears (no buttons or dials, here). Of course there's the ubiquitous touch-screen propped up on the dashboard for your infotainment and navigational needs. Engine picks continue with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder, or the optional 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. In both cases, the sole transmission is a six-speed automatic with manual-shift controls. Hyundai lets you specify all-wheel-drive with any Santa Fe. It includes Torque Vectoring Corner Control (TVCC) that monitors driving conditions and can instantaneously direct the correct amount of power or braking force to any single wheel. TVCC assists in slippery conditions and provides added precision when negotiating turns.
