Poor Santa Fe XL. Despite getting a new name for 2019, it's actually the old version of Hyundai's Santa Fe crossover. Its five-passenger counterpart got a complete redesign for this year, and the XL will soon be replaced by the brand-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade later this year.
But despite existing on borrowed time, and being long in the tooth, it has a silver lining to its story. For folks who need a well-rounded, three-row SUV, the Santa Fe XL is still remarkably compelling.
The Santa Fe XL is powered by a 3.3-liter V6 with 290 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque sent through a six-speed automatic transmission. My top-trim Limited Ultimate tester sends power to its front wheels, but all-wheel drive is available.
The Good The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL offers luxury-sedan smoothness and plenty of standard cabin tech for a low price.
The Bad Limited cargo space and a dated interior.
The Bottom Line If size isn't everything, this should be on your short list.
The factors aren't surprising. Not even a little bit.
The concept will preview future Hyundai design, and it looks good so far.
These photos depict a spicier version of the hot hatchback.
Take one standard i30 N and give it back to the N division for another once-over: That's shaping up to be the Project C.
We'll see an electric concept car, a new i10 and get a look at the company's first electric race car.
Reducing our ecological impact doesn't just mean cleaning up what comes out of your car's tailpipe.
This three-row SUV's avant-garde styling may be an acquired taste, but everything else will win you over.
We don't know exactly what kind of electric racing, but a new video teaser released by Hyundai suggests it could be a touring car of some kind.
