The engineers at Consumer Reports
really like the Santa Fe overall, saying that it "strikes a nice balance of size, price, power, dynamic competence, and standard equipment." They bought a Slate Blue AWD Limited with the Premium and Touring packages ($30,745).
The First Look was published online today and the full test results will be released in April (they're going to be testing it with the new Outlander).
[BTW, though not officially released yet , the redesigned Sonata did well in the new reliability survey -- especially for a first-year vehicle, as did the Sedona/Entourage.]
