Though the Palisade might be seen as a replacement, the Hyundai Santa Fe XL is still alive and well and offers 7-seat practicality from an entry point of just $30 850 in base SE trim. The Limited Ultimate may be more expensive at $39,550, but features HID LED headlights, an 8-inch touchscreen, and a panoramic sunroof. Both derivatives are powered by a 3.3-liter V6 generating 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque, driving either the front pair or all 4 wheels through a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The Dodge Durango, Subaru Ascent, and Mazda CX-9 are chief rivals to the Santa Fe XL, but all start at a higher MSRP.
