2019 Hyundai Santa Fe: A no-brainer recommendation
The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe starts at $26,795, including $1,045 for destination.
The top Ultimate 2.0T trim level starts at $38,145.
With optional all-wheel drive, my tester comes in at $39,845.
The Santa Fe comes standard with a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine making 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. My example uses a 2.0-liter, turbocharged I4 good for 235 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
All Santa Fe trims use an eight-speed automatic transmission channeling power to the front wheels. AWD is optional across the board. My AWD tester is EPA-rated for 19 miles per gallon in the city and 24 mpg highway. I observed 23.1 mpg.
There's plenty of space for up to five occupants, but cabin materials are low-rent.
Standard cabin tech includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on a 7-inch touchscreen. My loaded tester features an 8-inch screen with embedded navigation.
Standard driver assistance features include adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keep assist and automatic high beams.
There's 35.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. With the second row folded, cargo room expands to 71.3 cubic feet.
