March 5th, 2020 by

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe has just been named Best Large Crossover by the Hispanic Motor Press. An independent panel responsible for evaluating all new vehicles to enter the marketplace each year, the Hispanic Motor Press were impressed by the Santa Fe’s ability to perfectly match the driving needs of their community.

The Hispanic Motor Press Awards

Made up of Hispanic content creators, influencers, and journalists, the Hispanic Motor Press team is completely independent, allowing them “the ability to choose vehicles that better serve the needs, lifestyle, and preferences of U.S. Hispanic consumers.”

The jury panel evaluates numerous new models through the year to find those which will be best suited to the needs of Hispanic consumers. Looking at quality, style, safety, reliability, and value, they ultimately came to the conclusion that no other large crossover could beat out the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, which was named Best Large Crossover at the awards ceremony held at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

After taking a quick look at the new Santa Fe, you’d certainly be hard-pressed to argue with the Hispanic Motor Press’s top choice. First and foremost a vehicle built around the needs of the growing family, the Santa Fe delivers up to 146.6 cubic feet of passenger space to ensure that all seven passengers can ride in comfort. If you need cargo space more than passenger space, just flip the 2nd- and 3rd-row seats to create up to 80 cubic feet of it.

Interior technologies include a multi-view camera system, Android Auto, and satellite navigation, but it’s in terms of safety features that the vehicle really comes alive.

Standard and available driver assistance technologies include:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist
  • Rear Parking Sensors
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Smart Cruise Control with Stop/Start Capability
  • Dynamic Bending Light
