What’s New for the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe?

The Santa Fe is all-new for 2019, and it also has a new name. For 2018, Hyundai offered the five-passenger Santa Fe Sport and the seven-passenger Santa Fe. For 2019, the Santa Fe Sport is just the Santa Fe, and the former Santa Fe is now the Santa Fe XL.

The 2019 Santa Fe offers some major upgrades over the 2018 Santa Fe Sport. On the outside, it features a new cascading grille design and LED lighting. A new, more efficient eight-speed automatic transmission replaces the old six-speed. The new Santa Fe’s interior offers more passenger volume and cargo space. The infotainment system comes with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Santa Fe also features a state-of-the-art collection of newly standard driver-assist technologies.
