Mommy's Favorite Things: 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited AWD

2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited AWD

The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe is absolutely perfect for anyone wanting an SUV that gets decent gas mileage and at a reasonable price. I loved the Santa Fe I recently had for a week. 

The 2016 Santa Fe Limited AWD gets 18/25 mpg. Which is pretty great for an SUV. All at a fantastic price. The Limited that I test drove starts at $34,950. And the one that I had for the week, fully decked out with features was $37,735.

The Santa Fe has some wonderful features. It has a Hands Free Smart Liftgate. When the proximity key is within 3 feet of the trunk for more than three seconds, the trunk automatically opens. An awesome feature when your hands are full. Also has the proximity key button on the driver door handle to unlock the door. Great if you forgot to unlock your car so your keys never leave your pocket or purse. And a push start of course!

and at night!! SO pretty

The Santa Fe features a touchscreen radio. AND They have introduced Android Auto. I wasn't able to test this cool feature since we're on the iOS system, but it is pretty awesome.

Android Auto features Google Voice control and is designed especially for your driving needs. It also works with your Sonata's buttons or touchscreen.  And the apps you want to use in your car have been made intuitive so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong.

The Santa Fe SE Ultimate and Limited Ultimate features Smart Cruise Control with stop/start.  One of my favorite features in newer cars. When it's active, it detects a vehicle in your lane ahead and automatically slows you down, maintaining a safe distance and will even come to a complete stop and start again with driver input. 

I absolutely loved the GPS system on the Hyundai Santa Fe. It was SO clear on where to exit on the highway.

 And it said how long the distance was until the next exit.

Of course the Panoramic Sunroof was AWESOME as well and absolutely beautiful at night!

LOTS of leg room

The 2nd and 3rd rows. The Santa Fe is a 6 seater, with 2 in each of the 3 rows.

3rd row legroom with second row all the way back and all the way forward. Love that it's customizable depending on the passengers in the car.

Cargo space with 3rd row up, and down.

Super easy access to the 3rd row.

3rd row climate control! This is a rarity! I barely ever see this in a vehicle.

With a heated steering wheel and heated seats you can definitely ride in warmth when it's cold outside. These are perfect here in MI for about 5-6 months out of the year. I love having these as options. 

It features Blind Spot Detection on the side view mirrors. As well as Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist. 

Lane Departure warning means that if you go over the lines without your blinker on the vehicle will audibly and visually let you know. This helps keep drivers alert and keep the roads safer. 

Overall, the Hyundai Santa Fe is a great vehicle to drive. It's perfect if you're single, or just married, and it's great if you have a family as well. It's plenty roomy and the trunk is huge for all your carrying needs. 

I would recommend the Hyundai Santa Fe to anyone.

*Disclaimer, I received a Hyundai Santa Fe for a 1 week test drive. All opinions here are 100% my own and I was not compensated to write this post, other than receiving the vehicle

Looks nice, love the sunroof. Is there a shade for it? I know sometimes the sun can be too much even with the tint.
