This car is great. It's kind of zippy and fun to drive. But mostly, it just gets great gas mileage. I tend to get around 40mpg but if you're extremely anal about your driving you can get better mileage.
This car can transport a fair bit of stuff and does that cool thing where the seats fold up in the back so you can stash stuff in the back seat space.
I don't mind if people take this car on dirt roads as long as they're careful with it. There's a lot of good adventuring to be had around Santa Fe and this car would be perfect transportation for a couple or three people and their stuff.
