Hyundai has finally simplified its SUV lineup naming scheme thanks to the unveiling today of the new 2020 Hyundai Palisade at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. For a while, you could get a Santa Fe and a smaller Santa Fe Sport … then the standard Santa Fe became the smaller vehicle, while the Santa Fe XL became the larger one. Now, the standard Santa Fe is a five-seat, two-row SUV, and the bigger eight-passenger model abandons New Mexico for the California coast, and will now be known as the Palisade.
