Although the 2019 model year marked the beginning of the Santa Fe’s fourth generation, the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe underwent several additional upgrades and enhancements before making its way here to Melbourne FL, increasing its value even more in its sophomore year. The Santa Fe is probably one of the most recognizable vehicles on the Hyundai Lineup, going all the way back to the 2001 model year after its introduction at the turn of the century.
Although the Hyundai lineup of utility vehicles is diverse and filled to the brim today, the Santa Fe was actually the brand’s first SUV back when it was introduced. It’s undergone its fair share of redesigns and upgrades to become the absolutely stunning midsize crossover it is today, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the newest version of the vehicle.
So, what could Hyundai have possible done to enhance the value of the Santa Fe just one year removed from its major overhaul? By changing up which trim levels certain features are available on and introducing more. For instance, the Blind-View Monitor is now standard on the Limited trim level, as are premium door sill plates.
When it comes to driver-assistive safety features, Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist and Safe Exit Assist is now standard on the SEL trim level and up, while Rear Occupant Alert has been made standard on SE and SEL trim levels! The wireless device charging system is now standard on the SEL with Convenience trim level and above, while dark chrome exterior has been expanded to be standard on all exterior color choices for the Limited trim level instead of just a select few.
In terms of what’s not new, there is still plenty to get excited about in the new 2020 Santa Fe. It’s powered by either a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine capable of generating 185 horsepower, or a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder that bumps its output up to 235 horsepower. It’s also important to remind you that the 3-row version, Santa Fe XL, is no longer available as it has been replaced by the 2020 Hyundai Palisade.
