Big isn't always beautiful – just ask the Hyundai Santa Fe. The seven-seat SUV is the largest model in Hyundai's line-up, sitting above the Kona and Tucson. Now in its fourth generation, it has received a fairly drastic – and much-needed – makeover.

The previous Santa Fe, launched in 2013, looked and felt pretty old both outside and in. That wasn't helped by the arrival of brilliant new rivals such as the Peugeot 5008 and Skoda Kodiaq.

So what's new? Well, one of the biggest changes is the way the Santa Fe looks. On the outside, it now apes the smaller Kona, thanks to Hyundai's trademark 'cascading' grille, while inside there has been an injection of technology and a few more soft-touch materials to make it feel more upmarket.

The car has also grown in size, with the distance between its front and rear axles extended by 65mm, while its ride height has been raised by 5mm. But, despite being wider and longer than the model it replaces, it's also lighter.

The new Santa Fe will be available in three trims – SE, Premium and Premium SE – when it goes on sale in September, but with just one 2.2-litre diesel engine, which can be had with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox. Front or four-wheel drive is available depending on whether your idea of off-roading is parking on a kerb or driving halfway up a mountain.

Read on over the next few pages to find out just how the Santa Fe compares with its rivals. And, don’t forget, for the very best deals on the new Santa Fe and all of its rivals, head to the Lombardyexperience? New Car Buying section.
