2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Pricing Starts At $25,500

Following its North American debut at the New York Auto Show, Hyundai has announced the 2019 Santa Fe will be priced from $25,500 in the United States.

Costing $550 more than the previous Santa Fe Sport, the all-new crossover features an upscale design, improved fuel economy ratings and additional driver assistance systems.

The entry-level Santa Fe SE 2.4 comes standard with automatic headlights and 17-inch alloy wheels. The crossover also has air conditioning, power windows / locks, a rearview camera and a 7-inch Display Audio system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

On the safety front, the model has the Hyundai SmartSense suite of driver assistance systems which include Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, High Beam Assist and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. Other features include Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist and Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go.

Power is provided by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine which produces 185 hp (138 kW / 187 PS) and 178 lb-ft (241 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system for an additional $1,700.

 

 

The Santa Fe SEL 2.4 begins at $27,600 and it features a more upscale exterior with fog lights, a shark-fin antenna and side mirrors with approach lights. Interior changes are modest but include heated front seats, an 8-way power driver’s seat and a 7-inch color display in the instrument cluster. Other additions include the Blue Link connectivity system and a proximity key with a push button ignition.

The mid-level Santa Fe SEL Plus 2.4 packs on the features and pricing starts at $29,800. Starting on the outside, the model has roof rails, a hands-free liftgate and 18-inch alloy wheels. Other features include a dual-zone automatic climate control system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink. Buyers will also find sliding second row seats and a 12-speaker Infinity audio system with a subwoofer.

 

 

Buyers looking for more luxury can check out the Santa Fe Limited 2.4. The model starts at $32,600 and comes equipped with LED lighting units, a panoramic glass sunroof and satin chrome exterior accents. Other niceties include an 8-way power passenger seat and leather upholstery.

The Limited can be equipped with an optional turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine developing 235 hp (175 kW / 238 PS) and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) of torque. It’s a $1,600 option but Hyundai also throws in 19-inch wheels and a trailering package.

Lastly, the range-topping Santa Fe Ultimate 2.4 will be priced from $35,450. The crossover has a heated steering wheel, heated / ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and an 8-inch infotainment system with GPS navigation. Other additions include rain-sensing wipers, a wireless smartphone charger and a color head-up display.

The Ultimate can also be equipped with the 2.0-liter turbo engine but, interestingly, Hyundai charges $1,650 for it. That’s $50 more than the same upgrade on the Santa Fe Limited.

    Wow chevrolet did such a good job with the new blazer

    • Maher

      Yeah, except that this one was announced months ago, while the Blazer was announced last week.

  • jaykit

    I think this thing will crush it in sales. Very nice design, setting itself apart from the local competition. Hyundai did good work here. They should make a Genesis version for this as well.

    • bd0007

      Nah – Genesis has RWD CUVs in development which will get the Essentia design language.

      But the new Santa Fe looks very nice; more premium than many FWD-based lux branded CUVs.

  • Brent Morrison

    I thought this was the Hyundai Blazer

    • MarkoS

      But it was designed before…

  • Ken Lyns

    Hyundai Infiniti?

    • Perry F. Bruns

      There does seem to be a slight QX influence, but this seems more well-proportioned and handsome to me.

  • Paul

    I liked the previous one better. This looks like a me too design compared to it.

  • MarkoS

    Hyundai is on a winning streak. And no, it doesn’t look like the Blazer that was introduced after it.

    • :/ Yurr

      The FNR-X concept came before both.

      • bd0007

        And the Kona concept came before that.

        • MarkoS

          Oh I would bet the Hyundai design was locked in long before the FNR-X

  • SteersUright

    Looks like some real underpowered shit engines. Otherwise looks very elegant on the outside and decent on the inside.

    • Raul

      Fuel Economy. DUH

      • Eric

        Except that over-working a puny engine (2.4? WTH!?) means that fuel economy is often no better than with the uprated one (Jeep Cherokee anyone?). And you’re risking higher maintenance costs by constantly having to be on it. The 2.4 makes no sense to me.

      • SteersUright

        Hi Raul. 2018 welcomes you. Performance and efficiency are no longer mutually exclusive.

        • Raul

          And, you’re point?

  • Bash

    I don’t know who’s connected his iPhone to that car, but he have 12 missed calls and 141 messages, in real life, he is in trouble lol.
    Btw, I love the dark blue one more.

  • Jørn-tommy Skjellnes

    cheaper than a fian a fiat 500 in norway . in us u can buy 3 santa fe for the same price as one in norway 😛
    dont think the 20% tax is bad for u american…

  • WalthamDan

    I hope they worked some magic on the std 4 cyl so the next time we get one of these through Enterprise it doesn’t feel like we’re dragging a full trailer behind us every time we try to accelerate. The overall package has been okay, but not that base engine.

  • Joe E

    This model has come a long way since the first gen. I do like how they’ve retained the little sun emblem as part of the “Santa Fe” badge over all of the generations.

    I like the look of the previous.
