If you have a family and are searching to buy a new car, you’ve most likely wondered if the SUV you’re admiring is a good family vehicle. This question has crossed my husband and my mind after giving birth to our sweet son. Safety is the top priority for our family while purchasing a car.
We partnered with Hyundai to test drive their 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV during a road trip to Park City, Utah. I’m excited to be a part of Hyundai’s mission to bring families together during a time when there are endless distractions including mobile phones or late work hours.
Our family was so excited about our first road trip. We secured Kai into his car seat, packed our blankets and snacks in the cargo space, turned our phones on airplane mode, turned on the radio and sang music while marveling at the breathtaking views of Utah’s pine trees and mountains.
What a perfect day to visit the lake and have a picnic. Sun rays danced through the panoramic sunroof, as the crisp mountain air flowed through the opened windows. Kai smiled and looked up at the sky while the Hyundai Santa Fe rocked him to sleep.
After Kai’s nap, we stopped by the park to pick wildflowers and take family photos. Afterwards, we explored the historic downtown Park City and discovered a local favorite restaurant, Main Street Pizza & Noodle, for lunch. We enjoyed the outdoors and picnicked in the trunk of the Hyundai.
Once Kai finished the last of his avocados, we took the SUV off-road. The dirt road led to a mountain view that overlooked green fields, a barn, and Utah’s gorgeous mountainscape. Kai and I looked out the sunroof and took in the peace, beauty and stillness of nature. We had the time of our life capturing photos of the landscape and spending quality time together. Can’t wait to tell Kai about our first road trip and show him these precious moments when he is older.
The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe was the perfect car for this family adventure. I had no doubt about our safety and felt secure while our driving through winding streets and hidden dirt-paved roads.
3 REASONS WHY WE LOVED THE 2019 HYUNDAI SANTA FE
- Forward Collison Avoidance with Pedestrian Detection: This feature is perfect for busy roads or winding countryscapes. The car will automatically stop when a person or animal unexpectedly appears in the road.
- Blind Spot Collision Avoidance: The SUV also has 360-degree cameras, so you have total blind-spot availability when parking. Super helpful for safely coordinating a roadside family photoshoot.
- Lane Keeping Assist: This feature automatically moved our family to the center of winding mountain roads whenever we drifted.
