Hyundai's Three-Row SUV Gets a New Name for 2019

Get to Know the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL in St. Paul, MN

What's in a name? It's a question famously asked in Shakespeare's play about star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, referring to the two main characters' last names. But, it can be applied to many situations, including a recent shakeup in the naming of a couple of different Hyundai models here at Buerkle Hyundai.

Just as a rose that's called something else would still smell like a rose, so a Hyundai Santa Fe SUV called something different is still a stylish, reliable, and roomy SUV.

Let us introduce you to the new, 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL, a three-row SUV model that seats up to seven people, comes powered by a standard V6 engine, and gives drivers all the latest tech features they want. Formerly known as simply the Hyundai Santa Fe, this model added the XL to its name, while the smaller, five-passenger Hyundai Santa Fe Sport dropped the word "sport" from its name and became simply known as the Hyundai Santa Fe.

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL Power and Trims

Now that we've gotten the name change straightened out, it's time to get to know the Santa Fe XL a little better. This model will, of course, look very familiar to longtime fans of the Hyundai SUV lineup, and it comes in your choice of two trim levels:

  • 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL SE
  • 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL Limited Ultimate

Regardless of which trim option you go for, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL is powered by a 290-horsepower, 3.3-liter V6 engine with 252 pound-feet of torque. It's also equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive, although all-wheel drive is available as an option.

If your family requires a lot of cargo space for camping gear or soccer equipment in White Bear Lake or Inver Grove Heights, the Santa Fe XL is a great choice. The rear seatbacks fold in a split configuration, increasing cargo capacity, and making it so that this SUV can hold up to 80 cubic feet of cargo. Plus, if you like to take along a small boat or camper, the Santa Fe XL can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

Convenience and Comfort Features

As a Hyundai model, it comes as no surprise that the new Santa Fe XL is loaded with a slew of the standard features drivers in Minneapolis and Roseville, MN want, with more available in upper trims or special packages. Standard amenities include:

  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration
  • Bluetooth and USB connectivity
  • Complimentary, limited-time subscription to Hyundai Blue Link connected car services
  • Power-adjustable driver's seat

Safety Features for the Hyundai Santa Fe XL

When families in the greater St Paul, MN and Brooklyn Park areas are looking for a new SUV, though, the one thing they really want to hear about is safety. The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL does not disappoint, because it's designed with a long list of standard safety features, with more available as you add on features. Here's a quick look at some of the safety engineering that goes into this model:

  • Standard rearview camera
  • Standard LED daytime running lights
  • Four-wheel ABS
  • Emergency braking assistance
  • Rear child safety locks
  • Traction control
  • Comprehensive airbag system with passenger detection in the front seat
