The Hyundai Santa Fe is a phenomenally practical SUV that's plush inside and comfortable to drive. If the pricing is competitive, there’s every chance this could be a seven-seat champion.

Even the most ardent hedonist might feel over-pampered by the Santa Fe in range-topping Ultimate form – it comes with such niceties as ventilated front seats and a panoramic roof. However, it is rather pricey. We'd stick with Premium trim.

The 'self-charging' hybrid (HEV) is nippy enough with 0-60mph taking 8.4sec in our tests. True, there's a slight delay between you pressing the accelerator pedal and the car surging forwards, but it isn't pronounced enough to really annoy.
