The Santa FE XL is Hyundai’s longest SUV.

Now that South-Korean Hyundai is one of the world’s top car manufacturers, it has to offer a complete lineup of vehicles. It does just that for 2014, starting with the smaller Accent, an entry-level sub-compact available as a sedan or hatchback that offers great fuel economy. It continues with the superbly designed Elantra, now offered as a sedan, a hatchback, or coupe. All are powered by the same 1.8- liter four-cylinder engine.

Hyundai also offers a bigger sedan in the form of the Sonata, a car with a very modern look that can be ordered with a regular four-cylinder engine, a hybrid-equipped version of the same engine, or a smaller but turbocharged four-cylinder. One can also find bigger cars at the Hyundai dealer, including the mighty V-6 or V-8 powered Genesis sedan or the turbo-four or V-6 powered coupe of the same name. And for even more room and luxury, there is always the impressive Equus. But let’s not forget Hyundai’s most fun car for its price, the unique looking three-door hatchback Veloster.

Your Hyundai dealer will also have a selection of SUVs, such as the compact but great looking Tucson with front- or all-wheel drive or the recent mid-sized Santa Fe, now offered in its base or Sport 2.0T trims with a regular or turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Both can both carry five passengers, while the longer V-6 powered XL version can carry seven passengers.
