Which Is Better: the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe or the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL?

Looking for a quiet, comfortable midsize SUV? The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is a great choice. It gets exceptional safety and reliability ratings and has lots of standard features. But if you have large family, you may prefer the 3-row 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL. As you might expect, the Santa Fe and Santa Fe XL are similar in appearance. The main difference is that the Santa Fe XL has a larger grille, topped with a strip of chrome along the front and thin LED running lights. Both the Santa Fe and Santa Fe XL are fine SUVs, and drivers in Terrell can find them both at Randall Noe Hyundai. Read on to find out which one is better for you.

Interiors

Both the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe and the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL have durable, high quality materials inside their cabins. They both stay nice and quiet inside due to abundant sound-deadening insulation. However, the Santa Fe seats five people, while the Santa Fe XL can hold seven. People in Terrell who bring a lot of stuff on the road with them may prefer the XL, because it has 80 cubic feet of cargo space with all its back seats folded down. The 2-row Santa Fe has a maximum of 71.3 cubic feet of room with its rear seats down. Both SUVs come standard with:

  • Cloth upholstery
  • An infotainment system with a 7-inch display screen
  • Support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
One significant difference between both models is that the Santa Fe XL comes with dual zone climate control, while the Santa Fe does not. However, the Santa Fe has more standard driver assistance features. It comes with:
  • Blind spot monitoring
  • Lane keep assist
  • Forward collision avoidance assist with pedestrian detection
Both models come with a rearview camera, but that's the only standard active safety feature in the XL. If you want the other safety tech on the XL, you'll need to add the SE Premium package, or go with a higher trim.

Both the Santa Fe and the Santa Fe XL deliver a comfortable ride and balanced handling. However, the Santa Fe gets a little better gas mileage. It gets 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, while the Santa Fe XL only gets 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The bottom line is that the Santa Fe is better if you want higher fuel economy and more standard safety features. But if you need more passenger or cargo space, the Santa Fe XL makes more sense. Terrell drivers can find both the Santa Fe and Santa Fe XL in stock at Randall Noe Hyundai. Come see us and test drive one or both of them today.
