Expert Rating

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Hyundai Santa Fe

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor - November 6, 2019
  • 2019 Santa Fe is available; 2020s arriving
  • Bonus: Up to $3,250 cash on 2019s
  • Finance: 0.0% for 72 months
  • Lease: From $219 for 36 months

Strong demand for the Santa Fe continues:

Ongoing strong demand for the Hyundai Santa Fe means dealer stock continues to turn over fast. Most likely, you will need to work with your dealer to find the trim and features you want.

For 2019, the Santa Fe Sport has been renamed the Santa Fe and features an all-new and upscale design, paralleling the look of the subcompact Kona. You'll find both 2019s and 2020s in dealer showrooms; the latter is a carryover.

The current offers are in place through December 2, 2019. There is always a chance we'll see an update for Thanksgiving and Black Friday, so please check back.

Offers vary by region; our examples are for California.

Attractive cash bonuses for the taking:

Cash deals on the 2019 Santa Fe are in place. Hyundai is offering a $3,250 bonus cash offer on the Limited and Ultimate trims. On most other trims, you’ll find $2,500 in cash. The lone exception is the SE trim, which comes with $2,000 cash.

Choose a 2020 Santa Fe and there are also deals in place. Hyundai is offering a $1,750 bonus cash offer on the Limited and Ultimate trims. On most other trims, you’ll find $1,500 in cash. Again, the lone exception is the SE trim, which comes with $1,000 cash.

These bonuses are for consumers who do not avail themselves of Hyundai’s promotional financing or lease offers. That said, we recommend taking the bonuses and securing non-promotional financing through Hyundai or through your financial institution.

Finance your Hyundai at a strong rate:

You can finance a 2019 or 2020 Santa Fe at 0.0-percent APR financing for 72 months, which is an outstanding offer.

Hyundai's financing offers are very strong and typically outdo the competition.

Consider these lease offers:

You can lease a 2019 or 2020 Santa Fe, in particular, the SE FWD trim. This one comes in at $219 per month for 36 months with $2,799 due at signing. Your monthly effective cost of ownership here is $297, which is an excellent offer.

What's significant here is that the lease offer for both model years is exactly the same. Hyundai supplies a 10,000-mile per year driving allowance.

The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe gains new safety features and revised trim levels aimed at delivering more content for the money. The compact crossover line was totally redesigned last year.

All Santa Fe models now come with a rear occupant alert system, designed to prevent leaving children or pets in the car. The line-topping Limited receives a blind-view monitoring system that displays the blind-spots on the instrument cluster when turn signals are activated. As part of equipment repackaging, the Ultimate trim has been dropped.

Choosing Your Hyundai Santa Fe

The Hyundai Santa Fe covers substantial market territory with its five trims levels: SE, SEL, SEL 2.0T, Limited, and Limited 2.0T. Pricing starts at $26,995 including destination for the SE and goes to $38,595 for the Limited 2.0T.

Engine Choices

The Santa Fe's base 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is typical for this class – strong enough, but not exciting. Snappy performance can be had with the available turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, which powers the SEL 2.0T and Limited 2.0T trims.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.4L 4-Cylinder185 hp178 lb-ft25 mpg
2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder235 hp260 lb-ft23 mpg

All-wheel drive is available on all trims for $1,700, while all models use an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Despite its compact footprint, the Santa Fe offers ample room for five passengers. Head room is especially generous at 41.2 inches in front and 39.2 inches in back. There's 35.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat and 71.3 cubic feet with it folded. Both figures are solidly above average for this class.

Safety Features

Every Hyundai Santa Fe comes nicely equipped with lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, rear occupant alert, automatic high beams, and a driver alertness monitor.

The SEL and above carry blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and safe exist assist, which alerts passengers to approaching vehicles when exiting. SEL 2.0T trims and higher get rear parking sensors, while the Limited adds a surround-view camera system and the new blind-view monitor.

The Santa Fe is an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus and has a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA.

Connectivity

The Santa Fe features a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and two front and two rear USB ports. Starting at the SEL trim level, the Santa Fe gets wireless device charging and a 12-speaker Infinity sound system. Limited models add an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, and a head-up display.

SE - From $26,995

The Santa Fe SE comes with all the basics, including Bluetooth, automatic headlights, rear privacy glass, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The driver seat gets power lumbar adjustments, which is a nice standard touch. There are no factory options for the SE (besides AWD), so buyers with a taste for something more will have to advance to at least the next trim level.

SEL - From $28,745

The SEL adds a handful of features: a 7-inch driver information display, an eight-way power driver seat, heated front seats, proximity key entry, push button start, heated side mirrors, fog lights, and Hyundai's Blue Link connected services.

The $2,250 Convenience Package furnishes a bundle of useful upgrades, including rear parking sensors, roof rails, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, wireless charging, a hands-free power liftgate, and more.

With those features in place, buyers can top off their SEL with the $2,750 Premium Package, which adds leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, an eight-way power passenger seat, and full LED lighting.

SEL 2.0T - From $35,595

The SEL 2.0T gets the more powerful turbocharged engine, along with mandatory 19-inch wheels. The features from the Convenience and Premium Packages are now standard, which accounts for the substantial jump in price.

Limited - From $36,745

The Limited reverts to the standard engine, but retains all of the other goodies. In addition to the aforementioned safety and connectivity features, it also includes ventilated front seats with driver memory, four-way lumbar support for the driver's seat, and heated rear seats. The Limited also wears dark chrome exterior trim and premium door sill plates.

Limited 2.0T - From $38,595

The Limited 2.0T combines all available comfort and convenience features with the turbocharged engine. All-wheel drive drive remains optional, but everything else comes standard.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe delivers a lot of equipment for the price at each trim level, so they're pretty equal in terms of value. For buyers interested in luxury, we recommend skipping the SEL's option packages and advancing straight to the Limited instead.
