The Hyundai Santa Fe is a dependable midsize SUV that's great for drivers and families in Ithaca, Vestal, and Sayre. So, which trim is right for you?

To help you decide, Maguire Hyundai explores what each one has to offer in this review of the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe trim levels.

Hyundai Santa Fe SE

The Hyundai Santa Fe SE runs on a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. It comes standard in front-wheel drive, but HTRAC All-Wheel Drive is available.

The interior features cloth seats and a 7-inch display screen for the infotainment system. Plus, there's a lot of smartphone compatibility with Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™. You can also use the screen to check behind your SUV with the Rear View Monitor.

Some of the other driver-assistance features that come standard include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Keeping Assist, and a Driver Attention Warning.

Hyundai Santa Fe SEL

The Hyundai Santa Fe SEL has the same powertrain as the base trim, but it adds a Drive Mode Select feature. It also provides more comfort during your drive with heated front seats and an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat.

Furthermore, you'll have even more awareness of what's around your SUV with Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Safe Exit Assist.


Hyundai Santa Fe SEL 2.0T

The Hyundai Santa Fe SEL 2.0T offers more power with a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 235 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

It also upgrades both the interior and exterior. Outside, you'll have LED headlights, fog lights, and turn signals on the side mirrors. On top of being brighter, it's more versatile with roof rails. You'll also have an easier time packing up with the hands-free smart liftgate.

The interior adds luxury to the mix with leather seats. Plus, your copilot can find more ways to relax with an 8-way power front passenger's seat. You can also let lots of fresh air in with a panoramic sunroof.

Hyundai Santa Fe Limited

The base engine returns for the Hyundai Santa Fe Limited, but it continues to upgrade the interior. Ventilated front seats and heated rear seats come standard on this trim. There's also an extendable leg cushion for the driver.

The infotainment system gets bumped up to an 8-inch touchscreen and adds both a navigation system and Heads-up Display. You'll also get to see more of what's around your SUV with a Blind-Spot View Monitor and Surround View Monitor.  

Hyundai Santa Fe Limited 2.0T

The final trim level is the Hyundai Santa Fe Limited 2.0T. It takes all the features and amenities of the previous trim and adds more power by bringing back the 2.0L turbo engine.
