2019 Hyundai Santa Fe | Best New SUV for Teens $30k to $35k

The redesigned Santa Fe is a perennial contender in the midsize SUV class, and for good reason. Excluding hybrids, the Santa Fe is tied for the best gas mileage in the segment, along with the Ford Edge and Kia Sorento. It also offers plenty of seating space and poised road manners.

The Santa Fe comes with several standard features, including automatic braking, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and rear cross-traffic alert. There are also additional available features like a surround-view monitor and Hyundai’s Blue Link. Blue Link can offer curfew alerts and geo-fence monitoring, so parents can keep tabs on their teen driver.

The Santa Fe received perfect scores from the NHTSA and aced all six IIHS crash tests. The Santa Fe also has an excellent predicted reliability rating – J.D. Power gives it 4.5 out of five.

Overall, the Santa Fe is a safe and sensible choice for new drivers. Check out our Hyundai deals page to see all the best finance and lease offers available this month.
