What Is the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe?
Redesigned last year, the Hyundai Santa Fe is a five-seat mid-size SUV that competes with the Honda Passport, Nissan Murano and Ford Edge. A 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is standard, and a 235-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder is available. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and front- and all-wheel-drive models are offered.
What’s New on the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe?
A rear occupant alert system is standard, and the top-of-the-line Limited trim level gets a blind spot camera system.
What Features in the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe Are Most Important?
Standard convenience features include automatic headlights, a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, Bluetooth streaming audio and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability. Standard active safety features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist and a driver-drowsiness monitor. Options include rain-sensing windshield wipers, a hands-free liftgate, leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, ventilated front seats, an Infinity premium stereo, a 360-degree camera system, a head-up display and wireless device charging.
Should I Buy the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe?
The Santa Fe is a comfortable, spacious mid-size SUV that delivers a lot of value for the money. There are some drivetrain concerns, such as gas pedal lag with the turbo engine and a transmission that can be unwilling to kick down to a low enough gear, but it wasn’t enough to prevent the Santa Fe from winning a comparison test of six mid-size SUVs — albeit by the slimmest of margins.
Just purchased it, so far so good.
Good value and great warranty. Meets our needs for a family vehicle. We didn’t need a third seat so it has lots of cargo space. Read full review
