The Santa Fe was Hyundai’s very first sport-utility vehicle brought out in 2000. Like many of Hyundai’s models, the Santa Fe was named after a destination (specifically here, a city in Mexico).
Size-wise, the vehicle sits between the Tucson and Veracruz. The first generation had two engine variants and transmission combinations, one of which was a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.
After a couple of successful years, customer complaints started making their way back to Hyundai, namely that the bonnet used a prop rather than gas struts, there was no light in the glove box and the vehicle just wasn’t powerful enough. Hyundai listened to this feedback and responded with numerous upgrades and facelifts.
The second generation was released in 2005 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit and began rolling off the production assembly line in Montgomery, Alabama (which was shared with the Hyundai Sonata). The standard safety features included electric stability control, side curtain airbags for all passengers, tire pressure monitors and anti-lock brakes.
A third-generation debuted at the New York Auto Show and had two wheelbase-length variants, the longer of the two accommodated three rows of seats designed to fit 7 people. There was one basic trim with the ability to add a multitude of packages, allowing the customer to customize their own vehicle.
The fourth-generation came out as a 2-row SUV in 2018, the three-row variant was on sale only up until 2019. In Europe, three engines were available, 2.0-liter diesel, 2.2-liter diesel and a 2.4-liter gasoline, all of which were available in either 6 or 8-speed automatic transmission. The 2020 facelift was built on the new N3 platform to allow for both hybris and plug-in hybrid variants.
