2005 Hyundai Santa Fe Quick Test Drive with a WOT 0-60.
THis one has the 2.7L DOHC V6 making 173 HP while mated to a 4 speed auto.
These disparately beg for more gears. The 4 speed Auto just slows things down badly. It's a bit quicker than the base model newer style 2007 Santa Fe's as these older 1's as they weigh less. The Korny Monsoon Radio was OK ( Better than the base system found on other cars but really it sounds more like a Passing Cloud.
Hyundai Santa Fe 4WD 2.4 GLS Full Review,Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
The 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe ranks 10 out of 23 Affordable Midsize SUVs. This
ranking is based on our analysis of 45 published reviews and test drives of
the Hyundai Santa Fe, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
It's a good thing the 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe stands out for its price,
because reviewers say it's a forgettable SUV that doesn't stand out for
If you need midsize SUV, the 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe has one of the lowest
prices in the class. When you add in the fact that it has standard
features like Bluetooth, steering wheel audio controls, a USB port, and
excellent fuel economy, going for the Santa Fe seems like a no-brainer.
But, most car reviewers say that if there's room in your budget, check out
the competition before settling on the Santa Fe. While its fuel economy
numbers are great, the Santa Fe has forgettable performance and styling.
Plus, while the Santa Fe used to offer a third row, making it a good choice
for families with lots of kids and college tuitions to save for, it is no
longer an option.
In short, the Santa Fe is a strong choice for SUV buyers on a budget. When
you add in its long warranty, people who put their wallets first will find
a lot to like. But, if you're interested in performance, style or an
upscale interior, the Santa Fe will disappoint.
Other SUVs to Consider
To get an SUV at the same or lower price as the Santa Fe, you should check
out compact SUVs. Most midsize SUVs cost more. The good news is, by going
for a compact SUV you'll save on money and gas, though you will give up
some cargo and passenger space. The 2011 Chevrolet Equinox is a good
alternative to the Santa Fe, because even though it's a compact SUV, it's
one of the largest in the class. It gets excellent fuel economy and while
it has fewer standard features than the Santa Fe, reviewers say its
interior feels nicer. However, it does start at about $1,000 more than the
Santa Fe does.
If you like the feel of the Santa Fe and Hyundai's long warranty, take a
look at the Hyundai Tucson. Not only is it less expensive, it's also more
stylish. It doesn't have quite as much interior space, but reviewers still
say its interior is comfortable and practical.
If you need a third row, take a look at the Toyota Highlander. It costs
about $4,000 more than the Santa Fe but its third-row are standard. While
it's more expensive than the Santa Fe, it's one of the least expensive
three-row midsize SUVs available.
Details: Hyundai Santa Fe
The 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe comes in three trims -- the GLS, SE and Limited.
All-wheel drive is available on all trim levels. For 2011, changes are
small; there are a few new exterior colors. A USB port and Bluetooth hands
free phone system are newly standard.Santa Fe offers impressive room, build
quality, and standard safety features, all at competitive prices. Hyundai's
generous warranty is another value plus. GLS models need more zip, and all
Santa Fes could benefit from a better ride and handling balance. Most
shoppers, though, should find this crossover a satisfying choice." --
"Like the rest of Hyundai's lineup, it's a good value." -- Car and Driver
" . . a commendable midsize crossover SUV choice.."The Santa Fe has
performance that reviewers say is adequate for around-town driving. While
it's pleasant and composed, the Santa Fe's performance isn't thrilling.
Then again, few midsize SUVs are a blast to drive. If you want something
that's more fun, check out the Nissan Murano -- but you'll have to pay more
for the pleasure. Read More

The Hyundai Santa Fe is great value, providing lots of space, practicality,
power and kit for the money. It's good to drive, too.
The front head restraints are intrusive and some of the cabin trim is
plasticky. Many rivals are cheaper to run and hold their value better.
