Good, but do not upgrade the infotainment software
Replaced 2007 SantaFe, which was quite reliable. I like the styling (acquired taste). The interior is well done and the central console with the "bucket" with ability to move cupholders out of the way is perfect. Shifting by buttons adds more ability to automatically control the vehicle (turning vehicle off will automatically shift to Park, for example). There are plenty of buttons and key central control buttons are well laid out and easy to reach. Adaptive cruse control connected to the GPS with drive assist works remarkable well and the vehicle drive itself on long distances while keeping single hand on the steering wheel. One is remarkable not tired after 10 hours driving using the system. Unfortunately, for unexplicable reasons, they take away useful features when upgrading the maps. The upgrade not only maps, but the infotainment software as well and they are not transparent about the changes. There is no rollback and no option to get the removed features back. That is still and irritant after very good initial impressions. The highway wind noise is on higher end, but I knew that before buying the car, so it does not bother me, but it is noticeable. They removed the leather second row bench seating from higher trims, so getting leather second bench is done by selecting base mode with two packages. Unfortunately, you cannot get premium audio nor electronic cluster with second row bench seating. The base audio sound is bad, I had to replace all the speakers to make the sound decent.
