Does this really have less cargo space than a CR-V? It sounds like the official numbers are 36.6 cubic feet behind the second row and 71.3 with the second row folded.

Canada, Eh!!
Better rear visibility since bit longer but think they dropped ball by not making safety features standard from base like toyota.

Also, it's longer and wider then CRV but less cargo space with seats up and down.

When I was cross shopping for a 3 row SUV, I looked into the XL and quickly dropped it off my shortlist as it was pushing over $50K OTR.

Unlikely in terms of real/easily usable space. The previous gen easily beat compact SUVs in terms of cargo floor area, I doubt this would have decreased with the new Santa Fe.

Cool. I am interested in the mileage on the diesel that will be coming. Thinking of a family setup of an EV like the Leaf and then an SUV for road trips and secondary driving. CR-V has the best mileage but RAV4 Hybrid will surely top it, wonder if this diesel will be around 35mpg combined or what.

Has anyone tried one in person yet? Particularly the 2.0T? They should have stock at dealerships by now.
Too bad only the ultimate has things like birds eye view.
I'm cross comparing murano, edge and the new Santa fe

No they're still not for retail. The only way to try them out at the moment is via rentals and they've only recently landed for rental and as recently as last week.

Rentals at the dealership or to rental fleets?

Rental fleets. Essential and Preferred AWD with the 2.4s at the moment. The bigger XLs are not yet released.
