The subject of my review will be the new 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. The new generation comes with a plenty good stuff inside and outside. First of all, its strong V-6 provides quick acceleration. The exterior design is more appealing, the interior is very roomy and I must mention, excellent cargo space. It is still a vehicle with good value for money and buyer’s remorse is something that manufacturer definitely does not expect. With its power, comfort and style, the new 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe will be a serious rival on the market. The main competitors in this battle for the buyers will be the Nissan Pathfinder, Honda Pilot, Nissan Murano and Ford Flex.
