There’s a popular meme that jokes about how all similar SUVs look today with a gallery of white vehicles that are hard to tell apart. You definitely won’t find the 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe on it.

Hyundai’s latest take on the midsize three-row model has a distinctive design that turns 8-bit computer-inspired elements into a modern look that stands out in any parking lot at a starting price of $35,345.

The boxy styling isn’t just about turning heads, it helps provide headroom and legroom for six-foot-tall passengers in all three rows.

The Alabama-built SUV backs it up with a comfortable ride, a smooth 277 hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a premium interior that punches above its weight class. It also has a feature set that includes nearly everything you could possibly want, from an advanced lane-centering adaptive cruise control to a UV-C sterilization compartment for electronic devices.
