2019 Hyundai Santa Fe: A Tech Favorite

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is a highly capable SUV that has room for five, plenty of cargo space and engines that tow. It’s also Hyundai’s most advanced SUV to date, offering lots of standard and optional technologies.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Keep You Connected

The foundation of the 2019 Hyundai Sante Fe’s infotainment system is a 7-inch display that comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Drivers can easily stay connected and access their favorite mobile apps through the interface, which can be upgraded to an 8-inch touchscreen on the Ultimate and Ultimate 2.0T trims.

In-Dash Navigation Gets You to Your Destination

Upgrading to the 8-inch touchscreen display also brings on board in-dash navigation for easy getting around. Just plug in your destination or search for a nearby attraction, and the system will quickly determine the fastest route to takes. There’s no need to worry about using up your valuable cellular data, and you can still use all your other compatible apps.

Wireless Charging for Qi Devices Keeps You Powered

Further enhancing smartphone compatibility, both the Ultimate and Ultimate 2.0T trims also come with wireless charging for compatible mobile devices. Just set down your Qi-equipped phone, and it’ll be powered up as you drive.

Smartphone Controls for Remote Access

Regardless of what trim you select, all new 2019 Hyundai Santa Fes come with three years of complimentary Blue Link Connected Car Services. Simply pull up the controls through the voice-activated app, and you can instantly adjust your car’s locks, automatic climate control, and ignition. The system is also helpful if you forget when the next scheduled service is, and the stolen vehicle recovery feature proves invaluable in the unlikely event that your SUV is taken.

Blue Link Connected Car Services can be activated through your linked smartphone, smartwatch, Amazon Echo or Google Home device.

Cargo-Area Automations for Added Convenience

Thanks to a pair of automations, accessing the cargo area -- an ever-important feature in any SUV -- is easy no matter what you’re loading. When your arms are full of grocery bags, just wave your foot below the tailgate sensor, and the liftgate will rise open. If you’re trying to put in something larger, like a piece of furniture, two buttons control the power-folding rear seats to increase cargo room.

Extras to Keep You Happy Behind the Wheel

Specifically for the driver, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe has a couple of amenities that make both long and short drives more enjoyable. The available proximity key remembers driver settings for the seat, mirrors and instrument gauge brightness, and the heads-up display helps whoever is behind the wheel keep their eyes on the road.

Many Safety Features Provide Robust Protection

Of course, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe’s technology goes beyond staying connected and making driving convenient. The SUV additionally comes with a plethora of standard and available advanced safety features, including:

  • Forward collision mitigation
  • Blind-spot collision avoidance assist
  • Lane keeping assist
  • Driver attention warning
  • Smart cruise control with start/stop
  • Safe exit assist
  • Four cameras providing a 360-degree view

These, along with many other safety items, have helped the 2019 Santa Fe earn an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ designation -- the highest safety rating in the industry.
