Hyundai is making a major change to its lineup for the 2019 model year by rechristening the Santa Fe Sport the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe.

If you’re a true music lover, the SEL Plus comes with a 12-speaker Infinity® Premium Audio system with Quantum Logic® Surround and Clari-Fi™ Music Restoration Technology, allowing you to enjoy your playlists in stunning clarity.
When it comes to comfort, you can customize the Santa Fe’s interior to fit all of your needs. The Santa Fe can hold up to 35.9 cubic feet of cargo while seating five passengers. Its 60/40-split fold-flat seats give you the option to fold down the rear seats for a maximum storage space of 71.3 cubic feet.
