Wow, just wow.
I have always been into cars and technology. I was on my 4th BMW and my lease was up during the pandemic / supply-chain disaster. I went to BMW to look at what I was going to get next, and found that the cars couldn't have common equipment and they wanted almost double the price from what I had been paying on the last 4 cars. I wanted a sporty and luxurious vehicle that wouldn't feel like a "downgrade" but there was no way I was going to be paying $700 - 800 a month for a lease. I originally went to look at the new Tucson Limited and was so impressed with that vehicle. The look, the fit and finish, the price, etc All wins. Then, I sat in the 2022 Santa Fe Calligraphy and was mind-blown. The car looks and feels $20-30,000 more expensive and can easily compete with cars in the luxury market. The Calligraphy feels like a Genesis or even more. If you hide the H on the steering wheel or on the front of the car, you could easily think the SUV was something $70,000 or more. The car rides great. The technology is outstanding. It is all standard on the Calligraphy. Things that I would NEVER have paid $1000 - $3000 for on any of my BMWs. Hyundai hit it out of the park with this car. Bravo.
