Driving the 2014 Hyundai SantaFe XL

Last year, my family and I had the pleasure of test driving the Hyundai SantaFe Sport 2.0T and this year we enjoyed driving the 2014 Hyundai SantaFe XL. We drove the SantaFe XL on a trip to Montreal. The five hours drive each way with a few stopovers was a comfortable drive for everyone in my family in this spacious vehicle.
We had lots of features we really like in the SantaFe XL, one of which were the comfortable seats that is perfect for long drives. The full sun roof is awesome as it lets light inside, and allows children to look outside in different angles, which both my children enjoyed. 
I like the window shades that we can pull up in the back seats.
While driving we found the functionality of the side-view mirror very useful, it automatically goes down when we reverse, and the icon on the mirror flashes and beeps if there is an object or vehicle too close when we lane change. 
The rearview mirror with the direction we are heading, and the built-in GPS are other functional features.  
The extra seats in the back of the SantaFe XL can be put down if we have extra bags or we can leave it as seats for extra guests. 
The solid drive on this well-built vehicle made us sometimes feel like we were driving a van. The hidden compartment in the trunk, also came in handy for us while we were travelling. 
The 2014 Hyundai SantaFe XL is perfect for a family of four, and if you have occasional guests or need lots of space for storage i.e. going on long road trips.
