What is the best two-row SUV for the money? The Hyundai Santa Fe, according to US News

A white 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe midsize SUV is parked off-road.

We all want a good deal when we buy an SUV, but we also want value for money. US News has a variety of rankings to help, and this year the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe was named the Best 2-Row SUV for the Money. Sure, it has a low base price, but is that all it takes to win the prize? Nope.

The Tucson is smaller and the Palisade is larger than the Santa Fe.

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe earned a US News score of 8.3 out of 10, putting it at the top of the win list for two-row/five-seat SUVs. The Santa Fe, however, also came in as a finalist in the Best 2-Row SUV for Families list. The Santa Fe falls between the big Palisade and the compact Tucson, and has a Goldilocks appeal where it’s neither too big nor too small. Though we do wish its base 191-horsepower engine had a bit more grunt.
