What's New for the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe?

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is a crossover that seats up to five passengers in two rows of seats. It's designed to replace the 2018 Santa Fe Sport and is therefore larger than past models.  If you wanted a third row Hyundai will be adding the Sante Fe XL coming soon.  One key difference between the 2018 and 2019 models is that the 2019 vehicle sports Hyundai's new look, which features a more upright grille with narrower LED lights and chrome accents. Adding to the 2019 Santa Fe's stylish new look are brighter LED tail lights and front LED lighting accents, which gives the Santa Fe a graceful appearance. The 2019 Santa Fe is longer than its 2018 predecessor, and it has two more inches of wheelbase.

On the inside, the latest Santa Fe has a redesigned cabin that gives passengers more room. It also has more cargo space behind the front seats. The dashboard is lower in the 2019 Santa Fe, which adds to the cabin's more spacious feel. The infotainment system is still within easy reach of the driver and front passenger, and you have the option of upgrading from a standard 7-inch screen to a more visible 8-inch screen. Other standard tech amenities include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Santa Fe's list of standard safety features has expanded to include rear cross-traffic alert, automatic braking, pedestrian detection, and blind spot monitoring.
