Vehicle Profile: 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe
The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe is an impressive compact crossover SUV packed with features, style, power and one of the best standard warranties in the automotive industry.
The Santa Fe is all about enhancing the family’s experience. High-quality interior materials, generous interior space and numerous luxury features like ventilated seats, a massive panoramic sunroof and extra-plush rear seats ensure that all five passengers can ride in total comfort. The ride is smooth and the numerous driver-assistive safety technologies enhance your awareness behind the wheel, the better to protect your little ones without getting in the way. For instance, the standard lane-keeping assistance system has three levels of intervention that you can select depending on how much help you desire. Other safety systems include Forward Collision Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Driver Attention Warning and Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist.
You have a choice of two engines when buying a 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe: a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder or an optional 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The latter is certainly the more impressive of the two, producing a capable 230 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque — enough to make quick work of slower drivers during your family road trip while still efficient enough to earn a strong 27 mpg on the highway, only two less than the standard engine’s output.* The Santa Fe is also offered with an HTRAC AWD system that enhances performance in inclement weather or where the asphalt runs out.
High end technologies
Every trim level of the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe comes with an impressive number of high-end features and technologies. The base SE model comes with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone compatibility, a 7-inch touch-screen display and automatic headlights. The slightly more expensive SEL adds eight-way, heated power front seats, a Safe Exit Assist system and Blue Link® emergency and remote communication services. On the top-end Limited Trim, you even get ventilated front seats, automatic rain-sensing windshield wipers, a futuristic head-up display and a surround-view parking camera system. It might be a budget-friendly family car, but it’s equipped like a luxury vehicle.
The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe is one of the most affordable options in what seems like an endless list of available two-row, midsize SUVs. Judging by its top-notch style, family-friendly features, efficient powertrain and high-end technologies, it hasn’t compromised anything to save you a little money.
