Even though the 2019 model year introduced to us an all-new Hyundai Santa Fe, engineers did decide to give us just a little bit more for the new model year. That means the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe in Cocoa FL is packed with even more value in the sophomore year of its new generation than it was last year, and we’re stoked to be able to offer it to you right here at Cocoa Hyundai!
The Hyundai Santa Fe turns 20 this year as it first made its debut back in 2000. Technically, its first model was for the 2001 model year, so its anniversary won’t be until 2021, but we don’t see anything wrong with celebrating a little early. 2019 saw the midsize crossover enter its fourth generation, and we cannot wait to see it continue building its legacy.
First and foremost, we need to discuss the Santa Fe XL. You’re probably familiar with the fact that nameplates have been changing for the Santa Fe over the past couple of years. In 2018, the Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport were both available. As the Santa Fe was redesigned, the Santa Fe Sport was upgraded and took the main Santa Fe name, while the three-row midsize crossover was elevated to the Santa Fe XL name. Now that the Hyundai Palisade has taken over the three-row midsize segment, there’s no need for the Santa Fe XL. So, now we have just one, the tried and true Santa Fe!
In addition to this big change, the Santa Fe underwent some packaging changes to enhance value even more after its generational redesign. A driver blind spot mirror was added to the SE trim level whereas it wasn’t available last year. Last year, dark chrome exterior trim was only standard in models with Twilight Black or Lava Orange exteriors, but now they’re available on all Limited models regardless of color.
The trim levels have been shaken up as well. Last year there was the SE, SEL, SEL Plus, Limited and Ultimate models, but now we’re cutting things back to just SE, SEL and Limited, though there are Convenience and Premium packages available for the SEL trim. With this change came a host of feature changes, making things standard or available at lesser trim levels to increase value. Check out our blog or give us a call to find out more!
