Hyundai Santa Fe (2013-2018) - Reliability & safety
The Hyundai Santa Fe comes with excellent five-year warranty and plenty of safety kit
Hyundai’s five-year, unlimited mileage warranty is one of the best on the market, and many owners are drawn by the peace of mind this offers.
Hyundai Santa Fe reliability
The current Hyundai Santa Fe didn't feature in our Driver Power 2016 owner satisfaction survey, but Hyundai finished a disappointing 30th out of 32 in the manufacturer rankings. Performance, handling and seat comfort were the areas that let Hyundai down the most, although the Santa Fe’s premium status means it doesn’t have any major failings in these areas.
When it was crash-tested by Euro NCAP in 2012, the Hyundai Santa Fe achieved the maximum five-star rating. It achieved an impressive 96% score in the adult occupant protection category, as well as 89% for child occupant protection and 86% in the safety assistance category. All cars in the range come with an array of safety technology, including seven airbags, an active bonnet system, anti-lock brakes, downhill brake control, an emergency stop signal, hill-start assistance, a tyre-pressure monitoring system and seatbelt pre-tensioners.
