To see what each model has to offer, take a look through our 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe trim levels review. Each section includes the standard features available in each level, to help you to make an educated decision.

Hyundai Santa Fe SE

Under the hood of this base-level model, you'll find a 185 horsepower 2.4L GDI 4-cylinder engine. An 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® and front-wheel drive are also included, which are standard in most Santa Fe trims. This engine and transmission earned an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 22 city/29 highway MPG.

Fun features of the SE include a 6-way adjustable driver's seat with 2-way power lumbar, for a comfortable drive. With the 7-inch display audio system, through which you can access Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, you'll have easy access to your music, podcasts, maps, and more.

And with these interior dimensions, you'll have plenty of room to fit everyone and everything comfortably:

Safety-wise, you'll receive a Rear View Monitor with parking guidance, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Lane Keeping Assist, and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection. Additionally, with the Remote Keyless Entry with alarm and panic, and Driver Attention Warning system, the Santa Fe SE will make every drive more convenient and safe.

2020 Santa Fe SEL

In this trim, the innovative Drive Mode Select system is now standard, featuring selectable drive modes for varying terrain conditions. Exterior upgrades from the SE include door handle welcome lights for easy viewing in the dark as well as heated exterior mirrors that defrost quickly.

Along with the many standard safety features, this model will also offer:

  • Safe Exit Assist: Protect your passengers from oncoming traffic with this system. It will sense if a vehicle may be coming and keep the doors locked to prevent anyone from stepping out.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist: Using rear sensors, this system will warn you of obstacles behind your vehicle when backing up.
  • Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist: This system can warn you of a vehicle in your blind spot using audio and visual warnings.

Inside, standard features include an 8-way power driver's seat and heated front seats for more comfort. It also has technology additions like SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, a 7-inch TFT LCD multi-information display, and Proximity Key entry with push button start.

2020 Hyundai Santa Fe SEL 2.0T

While the SEL 2.0T trim has many of the features of the SEL, it has a different, more powerful engine. The 2.0L Turbo GDI 4-cylinder engine can offer you up to 235 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, you'll have more strength than you'll know what to do with.

If you're looking for more driver assistance features, the Ultrasonic Rear Occupant Alert is sure to work for you. This system will detect movement in the back seat to make sure no one gets left behind. If it senses movement after the driver has left the vehicle, it can honk the horn, flash the lights, and even send a Blue Link alert to the driver's smartphone if equipped.

When loading up for your next road trip, utilize the convenient cargo options of the SEL 2.0T. With the standard roof side rails and hands-free smart liftgate with auto open and adjustable height setting, packing will be a breeze.

For you and your passengers, enjoy the interior comfort of the leather seating surfaces, and soak in some extra sun through the panoramic sunroof. With the Infinity® Premium Audio system, which includes 12 speakers and QuantumLogic® Surround with Clari-FI™ Music Restoration Technology, everyone can feel like they're front row at a concert.

The interior comfort doesn't end there. Also included in this trim is dual front automatic temperature control with CleanAir Ionizer and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, for added luxury and comfort.

Santa Fe Limited

While this trim returns to the 2.4L GDI 4-cylinder engine of the SE and SEL trims, it builds on the features of previous levels with all kinds of driver assist technologies and comfort features.

The 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat is upgraded to also include 4-way power lumbar, for more support when you're hitting the road ahead.

If you're looking for high quality safety features, you'll love the Surround View Monitor, which gives you a clear view of your surroundings. This will also include a Blind-Spot View Monitor, to make sure nothing is able to escape your notice. With the Heads-up Display (HUD), all the essential information you need will be right in your field of vision.

Additionally, with the Integrated Memory System, you'll never have to readjust your settings again. This system is able to remember two drivers' preferences for everything from seat and lumbar position to side mirror and HUD settings.

2020 Santa Fe Limited 2.0T

As a fusion between the SEL 2.0T and Limited trim levels, this highest trim level offers you the best features of both vehicles. You'll find the more robust engine of the SEL 2.0T under the hood. With this 2.0L Turbo GDI 4-cylinder engine and interior comfort features, you're already sure to have a great drive.

However, the Limited 2.0T also has most of the exciting driver assist features of the Limited trim such as:

  • Surround View Monitor
  • Blind-Spot View Monitor
  • Heads-up Display

With these and many more high-quality features, such as 19-inch alloy wheels, the Santa Fe Limited 2.0T is an exciting SUV.
