For the 2019 model year, the two-row Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has become known as simply the Hyundai Santa Fe. Meanwhile, the 3-row SUV variant, which used to be called the Santa Fe, is now known as the Santa Fe XL. Basically, the smaller Fe has become the new standard, and now it’s the three row that gets a special moniker slapped on the end.

So how deep do the differences go? Is it only about seating capacity and size, or is there more? Let’s take a look.
