The compact SUV conversation is a boisterous one. The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe looks to make some loud chatter amongst a sea of very loud talkers in the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4. Does the Santa Fe have enough volume to rise above the cacophony? Kelley Blue Book's Lyn Woodward checks out the Santa Fe to find out.

The Santa Fe isn't a compact crossover. It's a mdiszie crossover. The Hyundai Tucson is their compact crossover

I agree, I saw those cloth seats in person, they are the nicest cloth design outside of the GTI or Volvo V60.

I thought:
Kona= subcompact
Tuscan = Compact
Santa Fe = Midsized
Palisades = Full 3rd Row crossover
I’m confused now.

You forgot to mention the options in higher trims for heated & cooled front seats, heater rear seats, leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, a heated steering which are all in the higher trim options. Along with the upgraded audio system

The reason she’s calling it a compact is because Hyundai is marketing it as such (as seen on their website). However, if you look at the interior volume and length, this vehicle is firmly in the midsize category. I’m guessing Hyundai is avoiding the midsize name because it only has two rows. Still, it’s more comparable size-wise to the Murano, Edge, or upcoming Blazer is size than a CRV, RAV 4, or CX5.

I just bought a 2020 santa fe. Overall I love it, being a bit picky it could use better engine insulation. A bit noisy. Other than that I love it
