Interesting news about Santa Fe: http://aftermarket.theautochannel.com/news/2000/05/24/959199332.1.htmlhttp://www.newstimes.com/archive2000/jun30/aud.htm
I saw one last Saturday at the Baltimore auto show, and was able to get inside and check it out up close. Obviously, we couldn't drive them.
Earlier, I was hoping to drive an Escape at Edmunds Live, but their DC event coincided with the steering-wheels-falling-off recall, so we didn't get to drive them. Here is a photo of the sign telling us the Escape was MIA:
Note the Rodeo that got stuck on their dirt hill. Remember - the driver counts more than the vehicle does!
I have a 19 month old, so the back seat has more than enough room for us. I was more concerned with the cargo hold being able to hold strollers and the like, which is does well. If you move the front seats up a click or two, it's fine for even normal sized adults.
The Santa Fe has a 2.7l V6, actually.
I like small, nimble vehicles, so I consider than an advantage in the Forester. For extra space I have a roof top carrier by Samsonite (just $50) as well as a trailer hitch, plus a bike rack for that hitch.
That setup allows me to pack heavily for vacations, yet still have fun driving to work (and get 25mpg in the process).
