It measures 4.78 meters in length. It is a little longer than the Nissan X-Trail, the Peugeot 5008, the SEAT Tarraco and the Škoda Kodiaq, which are its main alternatives (all of them, like the Santa Fe, can have seven seats). The mentioned models have a lower starting price because the basic versions are much less powerful (list of all seven-seater SUVs ordered by price), but if we compare the versions of more than 190 hp, the Santa Fe is more affordable. The Kia Sorento, which shares many elements with this Hyundai, is a little longer and slightly more expensive for the same engine.
This has a refined response, moves the car comfortably and is hardly noticeable in the cabin, even in moments of intense acceleration. In a route by highway and two-way roads, at a light pace, it spends about 8 l / 100 km. The car leaves a good taste in the mouth due to the successful compromise of the suspension, which isolates well from the asphalt without being too soft, and because of the driving silence it achieves at high speeds.
The quality of the interior materials has improved and conveys the feeling of being a more luxurious car than normal among its alternatives. According to Hyundai, the changes in the cabin make it gain a bit of space, something that we have not been able to verify. In any case, the differences should not be great and the previous model was already particularly spacious, especially in the second row of seats.
The touch screen of the multimedia system is larger and of higher quality than that of the Santa Fe 2018. It goes from 8 to 10.25 inches and is used to control a new operating system that supports voice commands to activate navigation, among other things. For the instrumentation there is also a 12.3-inch screen (image) that does not support many customization possibilities, but has very practical elements, such as an assistant that, when a turn signal is activated, projects an image on the circumference of the corresponding side that helps to make sure there is no car in the blind spot.
The front suspension arms have been modified and are now closer to the midpoint of the wheels, for more responsive steering. On the chassis and body there are new vibration absorption points to improve the insulation of the cabin.
