It may be a surprise to some that the Hyundai Santa Fe has been around since 2001. Hyundai's first ever SUV is well into a decade and a half of going strong. Here are five reasons the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe is raising the bar for competition.

Fabulous Features

No need to upgrade in this Hyundai, as it comes nicely loaded in standard form. Up front, you have power-heated front seats and a 4.3-inch touchscreen featuring the Hyundai Blue Link telematics system and a rearview camera. It's also equipped with second- and third-row vents for climate comfort in the back and beautiful 18-in alloys moving you along. These are top-notch touches at a fraction of the price when looking elsewhere.

Spacious Cabin

The Santa Fe's cabin is more than ready for any adventure. Whether you need room for smaller energetic kids or tall adults, this SUV really holds its own. The 40/20/40-split provides an easy, useful and functional second row, especially since it can recline when you're in need of relaxation. You'll be glad to know the third row has 50/50-split rear seats, which makes loading easier.

Horses and Handling

A midsize SUV of this size usually feels unstable in corners, but not so in the Santa Fe. It not only handles well, but it has plenty of pickup speed. It's equipped with a 3.3-liter V6, good for 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. That's more than enough for any task on the road. To top it all off, the Santa Fe stays pretty quiet on bumpy roads and freeway driving.

Options Galore

If you desire, you can always add more to the Santa Fe, and Hyundai offers some generous options, including a panoramic sunroof, a power rear lift gate for easy access and remote start. There's even an all-wheel-drive option, for added assurance on any terrain. These available features give fancy SUVs something to keep up with.

Affordable

Starting at around $30,000 for the SE trim level with front-wheel drive, the Santa Fe is reasonable. The smaller Santa Fe Sport checks in just under $25,000. When comparing the field, the Santa Fe has a clear edge. Not to mention, a 10-year/100,000-mile warranty, which should seal the deal for most shoppers.

Autotrader Says

The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe shows you don't need to spend big bucks for a premium feel. Don't settle for any other midsize SUV until you've been behind the wheel of the Santa Fe SUV.
