The moment you get a glimpse of the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe, it is going to convince you that you need not look any further if you are out there for a crossover SUV that provides enough room for all of your family members and their cargo.
What’s New for the Year 2019:
For the 2019 year model you can say that Hyundai wanted to change everything except for the name Santa Fe. This year, the Hyundai Santa Fe gets taller in its height and stiffer in its disposition to make a stronger impression to more number of buyers who would truly appreciate its SUV components. It even got longer by three inches than the outgoing version, benefitting the passengers who are to take the rear seats. The newly improvised body looks squarer in shape and thus more aggressive as well. It looks better with the punctuated nose and tail that now get much bolder with the new features.
As learnt from the experts of the Petaluma Hyundai dealership the biggest improvement one can find in the character of the 2019 Santa Fe is its ride that got way better than its yester year performance report. For this Hyundai has made the front struts paired with a rear multi-link setting and this is done in every trim model, while for the Limited and Ultimate trims, Hyundai installed a rear air suspension that has the self-leveling feature to ensure much calmer rides and a much more confident towing.
Engine and Power Option:
Under its hood, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe gets a 2.4-liter inline-4 engine as standard while a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine too is added to the lineup as another option to get a gutsy performance.
The base engine is to make a 185 of horsepower that can adequately motivate the 2019 Santa Fe to carry a weight of 3,591-pound mass, but it does so with a leisurely move. The 235-hp generating turbo-4 engine undoubtedly feels brighter, that gets all its power controlled by a new 8-speed automatic transmission.
The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe gets a myriad of features for more safety, comfort and convenience. It includes standard safety features like forward-collision warnings that works in tune with the automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, active lane control, and a rearview camera that handles the rear cross-traffic alert system.
The for base features for the interior convenience include cloth upholstery, 17-inch wheels, Bluetooth connectivity, a 7.0-inch touchscreen integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
At a Glance:
Our exposure with the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe was with its base engine at the Hyundai Petaluma dealership that made us realize what we can expect from an engine that can make a 185 of hp that is able to move more than 3,500 pounds. This base 2.4-liter inline-4 engine was much more than just being adequate, and when it was an 8-speed automatic transmission to tackle its power, the efficiency could be felt at every odd turn. In our eyes, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is a crossover SUV that could deliver as much performance as its power allows it while being constantly confident and keeping its calm on the road.
