2019 Hyundai Santa Fe OVERVIEW

In previous years, the Hyundai Santa Fe was separated into two categories: the five-seater Santa Fe Sport and seven-passenger Santa Fe. The Santa Fe family has been blended and simplified for 2019. Starting at $26,480 (all prices include the $980 destination charge), the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe hits dealerships under a single designation, with five-passenger seating, and in five unique trim levels. With a fresh exterior and interior redesign, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe offers consumers two powertrain options, front- or all-wheel drive, and a slew of standard safety and technology features.

What's New for 2019

From the base SE to the range-topping Ultimate, there's a Hyundai Santa Fe to fit most consumers wants and budget. For 2019, the fourth-generation crossover SUV receives a larger cabin, a taller-standing exterior, and wide-selection of standard technology and driver-assist features.

Choosing Your Hyundai Santa Fe

The new Hyundai Santa Fe is only available as a five-passenger crossover SUV for 2019. Hyundai is planning on introducing a new seven-passenger large crossover SUV in 2020. The base powerplant is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that's offered in all trims and produces 185 horsepower when mated to the standard eight-speed automatic transmission.

In front-wheel-drive configuration, the base powertrain returns an EPA-estimated 22 miles per gallon in the city, 29 mpg highway, and 25 combined. Consumers can opt for an all-wheel drive in each trim for an additional $1,700. A peppy 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 235 hp that returns 20/25/22 mpg (city/highway/combined) is available on the Limited and Ultimate trims for $1,600 extra.

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is currently offered in SE, SEL, SEL Plus, Limited, and Ultimate trim levels.


The base 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is the SE, which starts at $26,480. The SE is well equipped with standard features including a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay integration, and a total of four USB charging ports. The SE features 60/40-split row seating, solar control front and rear glass, cloth seating, and 17-inch wheels. Several driver assist safety features are standard including forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, safe exit assist, lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. The SE is offered to consumers in nine exterior colors and three interior patterns. There are several dealer-added accessories, but no packages offered for the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe.


Starting at $28,580, the SEL trim picks up where the SE leaves off and adds several creature comforts. A seven-inch LCD instrument cluster stands out on the dashboard, as does the push button starting system with the proximity key. The SEL offers consumers heated front seats and heated side mirrors, an eight-way power driver seat with two-way lumbar support, fog lights, power windows with automatic up/down feature, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, and a Blue Link Connected car system with a three-year complimentary subscription.

SEL Plus

With a starting price of $30,780, the SEL Plus is loaded with upgrades and arguably the best bang for the buck for 2019. This trim rides on 18-inch alloy wheels, features a hands-free smart liftgate system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, sliding second-row seating, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, dual automatic climate control with Hyundai’s CleanAir Ionizer (which is a nice feature for those with allergies, asthma or other respiratory conditions), and roof side rails. Additional driver convenience features such as a rear occupant alert and parking distance warning system are standard, too. The premium upgrade with the SEL Plus is an Infinity Premium Audio system with 12 speakers.


The 2019 Santa Fe Limited introduces an elegant look and feel and starts at $33,580. The Limited comes standard with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, but can be enhanced with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine for an additional $1,600. This trim is packed with posh, featuring a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights, taillights, fog lights, and interior lights, side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, satin chrome exterior door handles, leather seating, premium door sill plates, and an eight-way power and height adjustable passenger seat.


At the top of the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe food chain is the Ultimate, which starts at $36,430. The Ultimate adds multiple upgrades including an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, wireless device charging, a surround-view monitor, a color head-up display, and an integrated memory system for the driver seat. Additional upgrades include a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, rain-sensing wipers, a 115-volt power outlet, and a four-way lumbar support for the driver.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is a great option for small families or individuals looking for an affordable crossover SUV. The SEL Plus is the best value, coming in just north of $30,000 and packed with multiple driver-convenience features. Those living in cold weather climates should invest the extra $1,700 for all-wheel drive, as it'll help with traction when road conditions are poor.
