A lot of times, when people buy an SUV, safety is one of the biggest factors behind their purchase. You want something bigger and sturdier because the passengers you're riding with are the most important people in the world: your family. When it comes to safety, however, size and power are just one part of the equation. When you drive something like the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe? That's when the rest of the numbers start to line up.

Highly rated for safety by a number of auto industry organizations, the 2018 Santa Fe offers solid crash test ratings across the board. As added frosting, however, it also packs in a bevy of valuable active safety systems tooled toward helping you avoid accidents before they happen. Automatic emergency braking, for instance, monitors the road ahead of you and, at lower speeds, can slam on the brakes if you get too close to an obstacle. Its pedestrian detection feature works to help you avoid collisions involving people.

The list of active technology only expands from there. The Santa Fe offers everything from blind spot detection and lane-departure warnings to rear-cross traffic alert and smart cruise control. It even offers a powerful around-view camera system that gives you a full view of the area surrounding your vehicle. That extra knowledge can come in handy in many different situations.
