New features on the entry grade Santa Fe include: super bright LED headlights (the previous entry grade non-LED headlights were really dim), there’s the 8.0-inch screen (an inch bigger than before); and there’s a wireless charger now.
The rest of the standard features list includes cloth seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, air con, leather steering wheel, drive modes, rear parking sensors, roof rails, a rear-view camera and 17-inch alloys
Stepping up to the Active adds 18-inch alloy wheels, leather seats, a proximity key, front parking sensors, rear privacy glass, dual-zone climate control, puddle lamps, electronic child locks, rain sensing wipers and power folding mirrors. The Active also gets new stuff in the form of paddle shifters and a raised centre console with gear shifting buttons and terrain mode control.
The Elite sits above the Active and scores new equipment such as 20-inch alloy wheels, a 10.25-inch media display, and a Harman Kardon stereo. This is on top of its previous standard features such as sat nav, digital radio, power driver’s seat, power tailgate, luggage net and rear door blinds.
The top-of-the-range Highlander gets the most new stuff. There’s the 20-inch alloy wheels (19-inches on the old car), also new is the Nappa leather interior, the 10.25-inch media screen, a Harman Kardon stereo, and a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster and remote smart parking assist. That’s on top of other standard equipment such as a panoramic sunroof, head-up display, heated and ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel and heated rear outboard seats and LED tail-lights.
