2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL




The Hyundai Santa Fe XL has gone through a couple of name changes in the past few years. Previously known simply as the Santa Fe, it gained the XL suffix to differentiate it from the current (and smaller) five-passenger Santa Fe when the Santa Fe Sport was discontinued. The three-row XL is now in its last model year, as it will be replaced by the much-anticipated (and larger) Palisade later in 2019.


The 2019 Santa Fe XL has seating for either six or seven, depending on which trim level is chosen, and comes standard with front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive as an option. Its engine is a 3.3-liter six-cylinder that churns out 290 horsepower and is paired with six-speed automatic transmission. With the generous cabin space, everyone can be comfortable and there's ample room for all of their stuff.

Trim Levels: SE and Limited Ultimate

With just two trim levels, the Santa Fe XL caters to those who want enough and those who want it all. The base SE is nevertheless equipped well, with standard features that include a bench-style second-row seat for three, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a touch-screen infotainment system with six speakers and HD Radio, SiriusXM satellite radio, compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, steering wheel-mounted controls (for audio volume, cruise control, and Bluetooth functions), heated exterior mirrors, side roof rails, LED daytime running lights, automatic headlights, and a backup camera.

The more luxurious Limited Ultimate is packed with even more amenities for comfort and convenience. Those include integrated turn signals in the exterior mirrors, a panoramic sunroof, LED fog lights, a hands-free liftgate, authentic wood interior trim, a leather-wrapped shifter knob and steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and improvements to the infotainment system, such as a larger (8-inch) touch-screen, premium sound-quality technology, and a navigation system. Cabin comfort is heightened with the second-row swap of the bench seat for a pair of captain's chairs, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front-row seats, a USB port for the third-row passengers, manual rear-window side shades, and a six-way power-adjustable passenger seat.


All Santa Fe XLs are built with protective elements that include front and rear crumple zones, an energy-absorbing steering column, and a full array of air bags. The base SE receives a rearview monitor, with the option of adding more active safety features: rear cross-traffic alert, lane change assist, and a blind-spot monitor. Stability and traction control are also standard.

The Limited Ultimate packs in even more, with standard blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and a multi-view camera system. Advanced safety features that can be added as options include high beam assist, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and dynamic bending light technology, which illuminates around corners on dark roads.
