2020 Hyundai Santa Fe vs 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe

Serving Troy, MI

The 2019 model year marked the start of a new era for the Santa Fe. This model year saw a redesign of the Santa Fe with a facelift on the outside and an updated interior design. The 2019 model year marked the start of the fourth generation of the Santa Fe. Since it got sweeping changes in 2019, the Santa Fe doesn't get tremendous changes in 2020. Instead, you'll find relatively minor changes to the features offered on select trims. The Limited trim model also gets more safety technology, which comes in the form of blind-spot monitoring. The Ultimate trim is no longer offered this year.

Along with these new changes, you'll find that the Santa Fe also has several standard features at each trim level, giving it an exceptional value in comparison to competitors. The cabin features many high-quality materials as well. While the Limited gets more standard safety technology in 2020, you'll find many safety amenities offered for the Santa Fe across the board in both model years. Both the 2020 and 2019 Santa Fe also have exceptional warranty coverage.


The same mechanical features are offered for the 2020 and 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe. The standard engine in the Santa Fe is a 2.4L with four cylinders. This engine's peak power output is 185 HP at 6,000 RPM and 178 LB-FT of torque at 4,000 RPM. The second engine, which is available on the Limited trim and higher, is a 2.0L turbo engine that produces more power at 235 HP. This engine's torque output also increases to 260 LB-FT between 1,450 and 3,500 RPM. The Santa Fe comes standard with front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive is available. The Santa Fe gets an eight-speed automatic transmission in 2020 and 2019 and numerous drive modes to match the vehicle's performance with the terrain and conditions.


In 2019, the Hyundai Santa Fe got a bold new look with notable improvements. This year's Santa Fe is longer than the previous edition, giving it a more dramatic appearance on the road and creating more space inside. The Santa Fe has a stylish but rugged appearance with a look and design that quickly takes you from country to city. Its list of standard features includes projector headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED accent lighting, and a roof-mounted center stoplight. Fog lights or LED fog lights are available on select trims, as are LED taillights in the back. Body-colored exterior mirrors and a chrome-accented front grille are notable features in both model years.


The 2020 and 2019 versions of the Santa Fe have many standard features. A seven-inch infotainment display screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is standard on the base trim of both model years. Forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and a driver alert system are standard safety features. The 2020 Limited trim gets a larger eight-inch display screen and advanced blind-spot monitoring.

The Hyundai Santa Fe received significant changes in 2019. Therefore, it only gets minimal modifications in 2020. Both SUVs are exceptional choices. Contact our dealership today to learn more and test drive both.
