Reviewed: 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport AWD 2.0T Ultimate Package

While the suspension is not as aggressive as something in a much more expensive BMW X3 or Audi Q5, you're really not missing anything else, except a ridiculous price when similarly equipped.

If You Don’t Know What Alcantara Is, You Will Soon
