The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe in North Aurora, IL

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Delivers a Fresh Design for a New Year

For close to two decades, the Hyundai Santa Fe has served as a favorite for drivers in search of an affordable and dependable mid-size SUV. More than a million and a half Santa Fes have taken to the road since the year 2000, carrying countless drivers and passengers to all of the places they need to go.

With the 2019 Santa Fe, Hyundai is gearing up to win people over for another twenty years. Receiving a thorough redesign, the newest version of this popular mid-size model delivers a winning combination of performance, safety, features, and affordability. If you're searching for your next SUV in St. Charles or Aurora, you owe it to yourself to visit Gerald Hyundai and experience everything this new model has to offer.

A New Design Full of Value-Driven Features

The first thing many Batavia drivers will notice about the 2019 Santa Fe is how different it looks compared to its predecessors. The 2019 model enjoys an all-new chassis design that gives it a sleeker look that's more firmly "SUV." This redesign extends to its interior, where the driver and passengers alike are bound to enjoy the new model's extra legroom.

We're also willing to bet they'll have few complaints about the Santa Fe's rich selection of standard and optional equipment. Every Santa Fe model, from the base level to its highest trim, comes equipped with Hyundai's SmartSense safety suite as a standard feature. This safety collection includes technology like forward collision assist, blind-spot collision avoidance, rear cross-traffic alerts, smart cruise control, and more. Base-level Santa Fe's also come with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, complete with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility.

And if you choose to invest in some of its more higher trim models? Some of the Santa Fe's optional features include all-wheel drive, a wireless smartphone charger, heated seating, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a premium Infinity audio system, and more. You can even get a surround-view monitor system that lets you inspect the area surrounding your vehicle before you start driving.

Solid Engine Options with Improved Emissions Technology

One area where the Santa Fe might feel familiar to Elgin and Naperville drivers is under the hood. The 2019 model offers a 2.4-liter inline and a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4, both of which have made appearances in recent-year models. The 2.4-liter powertrain can get up to 185 horsepower with a 178 pounds-feet of torque. The turbocharged engine, meanwhile, can achieve a robust 235 horsepower with 260 pounds-feet of torque.


Just because these engines are familiar, however, doesn't mean they're identical in every way. The 2019 Santa Fe utilizes a new electric variable valve-timing system that improves the overall efficiency of the fuel you're using. That allows it to burn cleaner and produce fewer pollutants and emissions. That's certainly something to keep in mind if you're an environmentally conscious driver.
