Stylish Budget SUV

In short: A fully loaded light-duty SUV.

The new design of this light-duty SUV is matched up with advanced safety technology and six standard air bags, all for under $30,000. Combining luxury looks and features at a budget price, the Hyundai Santa Fe is a capable crossover that's as easy on the wallet as it is on the eyes.
