The New 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe
If you’re looking for a mid-size SUV, the new 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe may be exactly what you want. Combining comfort, fuel economy, quality interior, and easy-to-use tech makes the Santa Fe an ideal and affordable option. In this article, we’ll find out what makes the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe stand out from among the competition.
What’s New for the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe?
For 2020, the new features of the Santa Fe are mostly in appearance. The exterior design is more upright and square than previous designs. The two-tiered headlight system common to the rest of the Hyundai fleet is also utilized resulting in a tougher overall appearance.
For the interior, high-quality materials and plenty of storage come standard. Passengers will find plenty of leg-room and cargo space behind the rear seats. This is thanks to the updated wheelbase which is three inches longer than previous models.
With a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder motor on the standard model, the 185 horsepower produced is adequate to get you moving. For a bit more power, you may opt for the turbocharged 235 horsepower option. The eight-speed automatic transmission keeps you rolling smoothly and efficiently to your destination.
Fuel efficiency concerns are relieved in the 2020 Santa Fe. It boasts 20-22 miles per gallon in the city and an impressive 26-29 miles per gallon on the highway.
The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe interior provides comfortable seating and a quiet ride. Not only will you find an attractive and sleek interior design, but you’ll also enjoy plenty of cargo room, passenger space, and storage. With comfortable seating for up to five adults, the Santa Fe goes the extra mile with reclining rear seats.
But what about car seats? No problem. The Santa Fe has enough space and seat belts to fit three across the back seat. In fact, you’ll find standard on all models two sets of LATCH car seat connectors on the outer seats. There’s also an overhead tether for the middle seat.
The cargo room behind the rear seat is a sufficient 35.9 cubic feet. This extends to 71.3 cubic square feet when the rear seats are folded down.
The 2020 Santa Fe comes in strong with high safety ratings, receiving five out of five stars from The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This was, no doubt, one of the reasons US News and World Report rated the Santa Fe the winner of their 2020 Best New Cars for Teens award.
Hyundai Santa Fe standard safety features include:
• Rearview Camera
