Overall The Hyundai Santa Fe has a black interior design with silver trim pieces to give an element of variety. The cabin materials are of premium quality, giving this car an upscale feeling than one would think. The buttons on the dashboard and steering wheel are big which means that finding the best one for your needs is fairly easy. The infotainment screen is located on top of the dashboard it’s easy to refer to during driving, though it’s necessary to park for a while to familiarize yourself to the options.
Due to the big side bolsters as well as decent padding the front seats are generally comfortable. The seat cushions in the rear are softer and more rounded which is pretty typical for crossovers that compete. Headroom and legroom are top-quality in both rows, and back cargo space is average.
