The popularity of midsize SUVs has increased a lot over the years. They generally offer better fuel economy than their full-size counterparts while keeping a sizable amount of passenger and cargo space. This year, Hyundai released its updated 2020 Santa Fe, which is already on the roads of Chalfont and Warrington.

To help local drivers make an informed choice on their next automobile, we at Fred Beans Hyundai Doylestown put together this 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe review. Below, you'll find an in-depth look into all that this midsize SUV has to offer.

Santa Fe Engine

There are two engine options available in this year's Santa Fe: an inline 4-cylinder and a turbocharged inline 4-cylinder. Under the hood of the SE, SEL, and Limited trims, there's a standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This setup generates 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque, while the 2.0-liter turbo engine produces up to 235 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

While it's certainly zippy, the Santa Fe still retains a strong driving range. It has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 22 city/29 highway/25 combined MPG* when equipped with the front-wheel drive 2.4-liter engine. You'll lose some efficiency with the turbocharged engine, but not much. This option in front-wheel drive gets an EPA-estimated 20 city/27 highway/23 combined MPG.*

All transmissions are fitted with SHIFTRONIC® technology, so more performance-oriented drivers can get the best of both manual and automatic driving. Additionally, this feature will intake raw data from the engine and road to optimize shift points for certain conditions.

Hyundai Santa Fe Interior

When it comes to interior space, the Hyundai Santa Fe has a roomy cabin to accommodate a multitude of seating and storage configurations for up to five passengers.

We'll jump right into headroom, which measures in at 41.2 inches in the front and 39.2 inches in the rear. As for legroom, you can expect first-row-seated passengers to have 44.2 inches while those in the second row will get 40.9 inches. The total passenger volume comes to 110.7 cubic feet.

If you were looking for a vehicle with ample cargo room to tackle the biweekly grocery run or children's cub baseball carpool, the Santa Fe has your back. There's 35.9 cubic feet of storage behind the second row and 71.3 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down. With all that space, think of the possibilities!

Santa Fe Safety

Hyundai is well known for manufacturing vehicles with state-of-the-art safety systems. Often, there are only a few features that aren't included in their entry level trims. This means that you're already covered thanks to technologies such as Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FCA-Ped), Driver Attention Warning (DAW), and Lane Keeping Assist (LKA).

Other native systems include 4-wheel anti-lock braking, Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with individual tire indicator, and Rear Occupant Alert (ROA). The ROA is a nice-to-have feature because it gives you a simple reminder to check the rear seats when you shut the engine off before exiting the vehicle.
