Hyundai provided us with the opportunity to take the new Santa Fe XRT off-roading at Bell’s Reserve just west of Nashville, TN. While the Santa Fe isn’t going to climb rocks like a Jeep Wrangler, it is certainly up to tackling a rough forest road, and the ride remains smooth and confident even on the loose surface. More impressive was how well the Hyundai climbed a steep track covered in dirt and loose rocks without any problem. The Santa Fe also has hill descent control, which did a fine job keeping the vehicle at a steady pace down a slippery slope without needing to apply the brakes.
