When it Comes to New SUVs for the All-Terrain Crowd in Knoxville, TN, Hyundai Remains the Capable and Smart Choice

If you know the new Hyundai SUV lineup, then you know that, from Tucson to Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport, each is a drive-time to excel the rest. Our automaker's sport utilities are models of the powerful yet fuel-efficient ride that makes driving them a pleasure. They're at the industry cutting-edge when it comes to technology, highly credentialed in safety, and best of all, homes to capacious, inviting interiors that are hard for the competition to approach. But excellence can be a subtlety. Why buy a new Hyundai SUV? The answer – the answers – are in the details.

Take the new Hyundai Tucson, for example. Not only does it come highly awarded by the IIHS and NHTSA, taking home 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK and overall five-star ratings respectively. It's also a showcase of features you won't find elsewhere. Available blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection aren't available in rivals like the new Ford Escape. Neither can you find lane change assist available in Nissan Rogue or Toyota RAV4. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, but not so from competitors like Mazda CX-5.

Explore the new Hyundai Santa Fe, and you can find similar accolades from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The SUV earns respective 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+ and five-star overall safety ratings. But it's capacious for the whole gang in ways others aren’t. To wit, it's roomier by the numbers than Toyota Highlander, Dodge Durango, and Mazda CX-9, at 160 cubic feet. Plus, there's more legroom for third-row passengers than in Highlander, CX-9 or Nissan Pathfinder, as Santa Fe offers a sizable 31.5 inches.

Gains go for peace of mind regarding your surroundings, too. You won't find our available Multi-view Camera System on models like Honda Pilot or Ford Explorer, among others. Lastly, but not least, ours is a standout commitment to quality evinced by stellar warranty coverage. Count on 5 years or 60,000 miles new-vehicle limited, 10 years or 100,000 miles powertrain, and 5 years and unlimited miles of 24-hour roadside assistance. That's more new-vehicle warranty coverage than Toyota, Honda, or VW, and better powertrain coverage than the former duo.

The new Hyundai Santa Fe Sport fares similarly, earning the same IIHS and NHTSA awards as its sibling. However, the kind of safe-distancing abilities of Smart Cruise Control with stop/start you won't find available on contenders like Dodge Journey and GMC Terrain. Ditto for Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. Santa Fe Sport remains the only vehicle in class with this feature, ahead of those like Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Edge, and others. Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert? They're not available on the new Journey either. Nor will you find Lane Departure Warning in Nissan Murano or available HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light and High Beam Assist on any of those above. That's with the same "America's Best Warranty" coverage, which excels the new Edge, Murano, and Terrain in key areas.
