Hyundai Santa Fe
You might think compact SUVs don’t offer a lot of space, but it depends on the model. The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe is a small SUV, but its interior toes the line between compact and midsize. We’re often asked, “Do all Hyundai Santa Fe models have a 3rd-row seat?” While the answer is no — the Hyundai Santa Fe doesn’t come with 3rd-row seats — the Santa Fe is still plenty spacious. Not to mention, it offers a wide range of features for the price-tag. Read on to learn more about the Hyundai Santa Fe interior, or see how it compares to the Honda Pilot.

Is There a Hyundai with 3rd-Row Seating?
