Stuff you should know

The Australian-delivered 2018-2020 Hyundai Santa Fe is a mid-sized SUV that came with several updates and variants to cater to a wide range of preferences. Over the years, the Santa Fe was available in multiple variants including the Active, Active X, Elite, and Highlander. The Active variant is the base model, equipped with essential features, while the Elite is a mid-range variant with added features and the Highlander is the top-spec variant with all the luxury and tech features.

In 2018, the Santa Fe underwent a significant redesign, with a new look and an updated cabin that features a more modern design and better quality materials. The most significant update in the 2018 model was the introduction of a new 2.2-litre diesel engine, which provided better fuel efficiency and performance. In 2019, Hyundai introduced additional safety features and slight tweaks to the design. The 2020 model did not see any significant updates, but it did receive minor tweaks to improve comfort and convenience.

One of the most notable aspects of the 2018-2020 Hyundai Santa Fe is its technology and safety features. The SUV comes with Hyundai’s SmartSense suite of safety features, which includes autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist, blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control. Additionally, all variants come with a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a rearview camera, and keyless entry. The higher-end models, such as the Elite and Highlander, come with additional features like leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a premium sound system.

The Australian-delivered 2018-2020 Hyundai Santa Fe offers a variety of options for consumers, with multiple variants and a host of technology and safety features. The updates over these three years have helped to keep the SUV competitive in a crowded market.

Should you buy it?

When this iteration of the Hyundai Santa Fe landed in 2018 it was clear that Hyundai had spent plenty of effort on making it far more plush and luxurious than its predecessor. Especially if you shop higher than the entry grade, the caban is especially nice. That said, there are plenty of standard features if you’re only after the entry grade.

There are a bunch of engine options available, from the small 4-cylinder petrol and diesels to larger 6-cylinder options, even hybrid options. While the V6 offers fantastic power, the diesels are more refined and frugal at the pump. Which one you want is up to you, but you’re certainly spoiled for choice.

In terms of reliability, there are a handful of reported issues you should be mindful of, but luckily (at time of publish), many TM Santa Fes will have some factory support left on them. Regardless, it’s important to get a pre-purchase inspection carried out before handing over you cash. It’s worth spending the money for peace of mind.
