2020 Hyundai Santa Fe Specs

 The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe has standard front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available on every trim level. There are also two capable engines to choose from, with each one working with a versatile 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®.

The first option is a 2.4L 4-cylinder that gets up to 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. This efficient engine can provide you with good gas mileage by getting up to an EPA-estimated 22 MPG city and 29 MPG highway.1

For more power under the hood, there's a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that can get up to 235 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This larger engine can actually help you bring some extra cargo along for the ride, as it has a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds.

Interior Dimensions

Additionally, the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe has comfortable seating for up to five people. There's a spacious 110.7 cubic feet of passenger room throughout the cabin, so everyone on board can get comfortable. A remote keyless entry system makes it easy to hop in and get going, while a large trunk and 60/40-split fold-flat seats let you load lots of cargo.

Safety & Driver-Assistance Features

Above all, the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe was designed to help keep you and your passengers safe. Its frame features a front crumple zone that can absorb the force from a collision and redirect it away from the interior.

Inside, you'll be surrounded by six airbags, including roof-mounted side-curtain airbags that cover both rows of seats. To make sure everyone is strapped in tightly, both Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) and front seatbelt pretensioners with load limiters come standard.

There are also lots of driver-assistance features that can help prevent accidents by giving you more awareness during your drive. For example, the Rear View Monitor with parking guidance can help you back in or out of a spot. Some of the other features that look out for your SUV are:

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist

For its safe design and smart features, the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).2
