  • Hyundai Santa Fe goes official with two gasoline engines, one diesel

Hyundai has unveiled the all-new fourth generation 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe, which will again be offered in two versions, but the biggest news is a new diesel. Coming out a bit later, the long-wheelbase, seven-passenger version will be redubbed to the Santa Fe XL. Compared to the outgoing model, the 2019 Santa Fe has a longer wheelbase at 108.9 inches compared to 106.3 inches.

The 2019 Santa Fe will offer a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine good for 185 horsepower, or a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder offering 232 hp. Compared to the old Santa Fe Sport, the 2019 Santa Fe is now 2.8-inches longer at 187.8-inches with most of that extra length going between the wheels, since the wheelbase is now 2.6-inches longer. All engines are mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission, which replaces the six-speed in the current model.

A blown rear spoiler with a "suspended" appearance has been reshaped and made longer and higher for increased performance. For that reason, we expect the auto to feel more manageable and less intimidating on the limit than the numbers suggest.

Don't look for an electrified new-generation Santa Fe to hit dealers soon, though. But if even the XL isn't big enough for your needs, Hyundai has also confirmed another, all-new, three-row, eight-passenger SUV is now in the development stage and will be an entirely new nameplate for the Hyundai brand. The diesel option will also be the only model with optional third-row seating.

It drives via Hyundai's HTrac all-wheel drive system, with an electronic, variable-torque-split clutch between the front and rear axles and three selectable drive modes - Normal, Sport (most of the power goes to the rear wheels for improved handling) and Smart. It is also not immediately known if U.S. dealers will get this powertrain variant, but it seems highly likely given that Hyundai acknowledges that North America is the Santa Fe's main market. The profile looks much more muscular with strong character lines, flared wheel arches, a stylish set of alloy wheels and more. Hyundai says there is more room behind the second-row seats when second-row seats are folded, and the leg room has been lengthened to be best-in-class. The interior appears to uses a lot of soft-touch material and leather, especially for the central and side armrests and upholstery. The top-end trim gets a touchscreen display with Hyundai's latest AVN 5.0 navigation system, while the base level trim gets a standard 7-inch user interface and both are equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It's also evolutionary, though there are some key differences between the design of this new Santa Fe and that of its predecessor. Instead we will have the choice of the 2.2-litre turbo diesel and 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol.
