2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Stands Out from the Crowd

The previous Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has ascended to an all-new namesake, and it's already pulling ahead of the rest. Tuttle-Click Hyundai has the scoop.

Drivers in the Irvine, CA area can look forward to a novel approach to the beloved compact SUV segment in the new 2019 Santa Fe.

For one, it's styling is fresher than ever, incorporating a prominent front end with a stacked lighting design, wraparound LED illumination, from head and daytime running lights to fog lamps and turn signals, and a highly practical interior with a gracefully executed, premium feel. In fact, that interior is larger and roomier than ever. Its improvements include better optional navigation positioning, new switch and handle placement for more elbow room, smaller door map pockets, a taller and larger center armrest, repositioned cupholders, more legroom, better cargo room behind the second row, a lower second-row floor, one-touch folding rear seats, and a third-row seat that's newly available on the all-new Santa Fe Diesel.

Yes, you sure heard right! There's also a new powertrain. Joining a standard 2.4-liter, four-cylinder with Stop & Go tech and an optional 2.0-liter turbocharged model, you can look forward to an ultra-efficient available 2.2-liter turbo-diesel. Each is paired with a standard eight-speed auto transmission, too, offering gearshift ease.

he latest Hyundai SUV's safety features have also been enhanced for the model year. They range from new Forward and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist systems, Pedestrian Detection, and a Blind-Spot Collision Warning system to Lane-Keeping Assist, Safe Exit Assist, and a Driver Attention Warning feature. Factor in a Rear Occupant Alert to keep you apprised of the goings-on in-cabin as well as a panoptical Surround View Monitor for keeping an eye on your environment. The result is wraparound protection you won't find anywhere else.

Let's not forget the Hyundai mainstay: cutting-edge tech at the head of the industry. 7-inch Display Audio and 8-inch navigation-equipped infotainment system options join Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well as available Wireless Device Charging to put you and your smartphone at the center of your trip. Also available is an Infinity Premium Audio system with Clari-Fi Music Restoration Technology, ready to make your road mix an anthem. There's even a sizable 7-inch TFT LCD instrument cluster and optional Heads-up Display to keep you in-the-know regarding driving metrics. But the piece de resistance is next-generation Hyundai Blue Link technology. Its three years of complimentary service puts your connection to your new Santa Fe in seamless sync. Access a host of remote features via rearview-mirror buttons, MyHyundai.com, the eponymous smartphone app, a virtual assistant like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, or even your Android Wear or Apple Watch smartwatch.
