  • Starting price: $28,600
  • Engine specs: 3.3 liters, six cylinders
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 18 mpg city
    • Highway - 25 mpg highway

The carmaker hasn't yet released its 2014 model, but the Santa Fe is another affordable SUV that has scored well in crash safety tests. This IIHS top safety pick crossover has seven air bags, including driver, front passenger and driver's knee air bags.

This SUV also comes standard with electronic stability control, traction control and anti-lock brakes.

In the event of an accident, new Santa Fe owners have access to the manufacturer's Assurance Connected Care, which can instantly connect drivers to help after an accident. With this plan, an agent is available to stay on the line until after help arrives. This feature comes standard with the Santa Fe Sport for the first three years of ownership.

Along with these safety features, drivers can choose from a range of nine colors for the Santa Fe, including Monaco white, Hampton green and frosted mocha.
