Hyundai Santa Fe 2019 Review


Hyundai has created a new generation of Santa Fe.

Engine and Transmission

The new Hyundai Santa Fe is offered on the Romanian market with a single engine. This is the famous 2.2-liter diesel that Hyundai has been using for many years for all SUVs in the group. It’s an engine that has proven to be suitable for large models, requiring some more resources.

Is available with 200 hp and with a higher noise reduction to the previous generation. vibrations were better blurred. The engine torque is generous for such a model: 441 Nm between 1750 and 2750 rpm.

It’s a delightful resource feeling that continues decent even after 3000 rpm, making Santa Fe an SUV that you can force in some situations and that continues to offer a motivating package. You have enough ambition to overcome, but also reserves for a sustained run on the highway.

The four-cylinder engine is associated with an 8-speed automatic box that we’re starting to see more often within the Hyundai-Kia Group.

Hyundai Santa Fe Consumption

Hyundai Santa Fe has proven to be a multi-faceted car. Consumption depends seriously on the way you choose, but also on how fast you accelerate.

The 200-horsepower engine is stronger than the one in the Outlander, X-Trail and Kodiaq, but not as powerful as the new Ford Edge and Volkswagen Touareg.


When it comes to performance Hyundai Santa Fe leaves behind Kia Sorento. Sprint from 0 to 100 km / h is done in 9.4 seconds.

However, there are models such as Skoda Kodiaq, Renault Koleos and Peugeot 5008 that shake Santa Fe well, even if they have fewer resources. And the Volkswagen Touareg, which is two seconds faster.

The side mirrors are quite generous as well as the rear window

Hyundai Santa Fe Interior

How to open Hyundai Santa Fe’s door you feel like in London. You have never seen so much diversity before. In the capital of the United Kingdom there is a mixture of nationalities from all corners of the globe. Inside Hyundai Santa Fe is a shuffling mixture of materials.

In 90%, the blend is of good quality: fine leather, chromed inserts, soft plastic with a pleasant texture to the touch. Only in certain areas find plastic hard. They are used where they are not visible or where your look does not have much to look for.

A pleasant feeling also offers chairs that are quite comfortable and come with plenty of adjustable possibilities.

The central console is huge and offers many well-spaced areas. It’s that joy you feel when you uncover the secret drawers of a cabinet you just bought. So between the two front seats you will find an induction charging area for your mobile phone, an extremely deep armrest, glass holder, key and pockets.

On the back seats it is very comfortable. The seat is well-cut and has a lot of leg and head space. Hyundai Santa Fe’s boot has a capacity of 625 liters. It’s a huge value, but let’s not forget that the car has a total length of 4.77 meters, so it is considerably higher than many rivals.

If you do not do well, Hyundai also has a four-room set with a 360 degree view. The quality of their image is not exceptional, but they do their job well.

Hyundai Santa Fe 2019 price

MSRP range $25,500 – $38,800

This Santa Fe has a list price of about 53,000 euros. Price is in euros because we tested the car in Europe. Pretty pepper at first glance. Just that, for these money, you get 200 horsepower, an automatic box, full thrust and top luxury equipment.

Mitsubishi Outlander reaches over 35,000 euros but has weaker resources. A 177 hp Nissan X-Trail, CVT and 4×4, Tekna equipment, reaches 38,500 euros. Even the Peugeot 5008 looks like a good deal: just 35,200 for a 180 hp, six-speed automatic and GT equipment.

Even if it comes extremely well equipped, Santa Fe might scare some customers with his price.


It is then expected to get the maximum five-star rating. It is very clear that expectations set so high will be respected. It is enough to look at the mountain of safety systems that Santa Fe is equipped with.

I was very tough to watch the fatigue monitor. If the machine has a slightly irregular trajectory, something encountered on some roads where the bands narrow, the monitoring system recommends a coffee break. And he can do it at least 7 times on a 100-kilometer road.

Unlike the old generation, it’s a bit brave.

For lovers of diversity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is also available with many running modes: Comfort, Eco, Sport and Smart.


For the cold season, I’ll start with the heated seats, including the rear seat and the heated steering wheel. On the opposite side is the seat ventilation function, which is very useful during summer.

Behind the wheel you will find a digital screen that is the place for board instruments. It is also completed with analog clocks. The screen is full of information and you need to be accommodated. Not the same for the 8-inch central screen that serves the multimedia system.

You have access to Waze and Google Maps directly on your car’s display.

For the Hyundai models, the new Santa Fe comes with a Head-Up Display designed on the windshield. It has good brightness, pleasing colors and plenty of information available.

The Krell audio system sounds good and comes with a very nice set of speakers.

Electrical locking and opening of the interior and interior luggage compartment, electric seat adjustment, automatic LED headlamps and the long list of safety systems we mentioned earlier are just a few of the generous facilities that the new Santa Fe is decorated.
