2019 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. Santa Fe XL Comparison

What’s the difference between the new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe and its sibling Santa Fe XL? They may share a name, but do they also share the same features, systems, and engines? Test drive both at our Blue Springs Hyundai dealership, or simply review the differences between the Santa Fe and new Santa Fe XL below.

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe

A front-row seat to every journey taken: that’s what you get from the all-new and completely redesigned 2019 Santa Fe. Previously known as the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, the new Santa Fe is Hyundai’s most advanced five-passenger SUV yet. It’s excitingly bold and brazen, designed for the road less traveled, packed with more innovative technology than any Hyundai before it.

Class-exclusive safety features make the new Santa Fe one of the best SUVs in America.

  • Safe Exit Vehicle, for instance, keeps child-lock-enabled doors locked until all traffic passes.
  • The Santa Fe is also equipped with Rear Occupant Alert, the world’s only ultrasonic sensor, which warns you, upon exiting, if passengers or pets are still in the vehicle.
  • Features like Driver Attention Warning, Smart Cruise Control, and a heads-up display are also incredible additions.

As one of the finest new midsize SUVs, the 2019 Santa Fe should be in every family’s driveway. Browse our selection of new Santa Fe crossovers for sale in Blue Springs, MO.

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL

The biggest difference between the new Santa Fe XL and Santa Fe is its size. Replacing the outgoing ’18 Hyundai Santa Fe – confusing, we know – the 2019 Santa Fe XL is the largest SUV in Hyundai’s lineup. Aptly named, the 2019 Santa Fe XL may as well stand for Xtra-Large; it offers comfy seating for up to seven, cargo space that rivals that of a spacecraft, and enough room to keep elbows and knees from touching others’ elbows and knees. Its beefier engine also makes the Santa Fe XL your road trip towing king, allowing you to haul double the load compared to the smaller Santa Fe.

For those of you who enjoy space, the new XL Santa Fe is right up your alley. Take a look at our McCarthy Blue Springs Hyundai inventory to find the perfect 2019 Santa Fe XL SUV to call your own.
