For that price bump, you get a collection of new standard features.
First, there is the Hyundai SmartSense suite of active safety systems, including:
- Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist
- Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist
- Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist
- Safe Exit Assist
- Lane Keeping Assist
- Driver Attention Warning
- Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go
- High Beam Assist
In addition, the Santa Fe receives a new design, bringing it into line with Hyundai’s other new-generation vehicles like the Kona. On the Santa Fe, this design also expands the SUV’s greenhouse, giving the driver greater visibility while also increasing cabin space and storage volume.
Then, the Santa Fe received some new additions to its drivetrain, including Idle Stop and Go, which deactivates the engines when the Santa Fe is at a stop to conserve fuel, and a more economical eight-speed automatic transmission. As a result, the 2019 Santa Fe now receives an EPA-estimated 25 mpg combined as standard.
