Learn About the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe

What Adventure and Fun Look Like

It’s easy to step inside the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe when this SUV rocks such a sleek look. A dark, hexagonal grille with chrome accents frames the Hyundai Badge for a powerful and regal touch. Meanwhile, the wide stance and chrome accents throughout let the world know you’re ready to travel in style.

Take this SUV for a spin, and you’ll find the fun never stops with nimble performance, a spacious interior, and cool tech to keep your trips epic.

But how does the competition stack up? Today, we’ll take a look at the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe vs Nissan Murano to see which SUV stands on top when it comes to performance, comfort, and safety.

Two Ways to Enjoy the Ride

Take a ride in the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe, and one of two motors powers your drive.

Standard is a 2.4L I4 packing 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft torque. It’s always a fun drive wherever you cruise. Plus, with a 2,000-lb towing capacity, moving light trailers and vehicles are all fair game.

For more power, the available 2.0 I4 packs 235 horsepower and 260 lb-ft torque starting at 1450 RPM for a quick, responsive drive on city streets and the open highways. And with an available towing capacity up to 3,500 lbs, towing boats and campers to weekend fun is now possible.

When you step inside the 2020 Nissan Murano, one engine powers your trips. It’s a 3.5L V6 motor with 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft torque starting at 4,400 RPMG. For towing capacity, you’ll get 1,500 lbs, which is enough for hauling light-weight utility trailers.

The performance from both SUVs is stellar, but this round goes to the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe. That high torque at low RPM allows for quick acceleration you’ll feel on any road when your foot touches the gas pedal. You’re also looking at more than double available towing capacity to ensure you’re ready for any adventure thrown your way.

Step into a World of Upscale Comfort

When you enter the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe, you’re greeted to a cabin that’s ready to pamper you. Cloth seating comes standard, while available leather seating creates those luxury vibes for all your drives. Even opt for available heated seats to keep everyone cozy and comfortable for those brisk winter mornings. Meanwhile, available ventilated front seats cool you off and keep the sweat stains away on humid and warm days.

When it comes to space everyone and everything fits comfortably inside. 110.7 cubic feet of passenger volume allows your riders to stretch out for the long rides. Meanwhile, 71.3 cubic feet behind the front row and 35.9 cubic feet behind the second row give you the space you need to fit luggage, golf clubs, groceries, gym bags, and smaller pieces of furniture inside.

For connecting to your media, a 7-inch display with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ comes standard. If you’re ready to find new routes and adventures, an available 8-inch touchscreen with navigation is prepared to guide you where you need to go.

Enter the 2020 Nissan Murano, and you’ll find similar design choices with standard cloth and available leather-trimmed seats. For connecting to your media, you can also opt for an available 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. When it comes to space, you’ll have about 108.1 cubic feet of passenger volume. For your goods, you’ll have 65 cubic feet behind the front row and 31.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind your rear seat.

Both these SUVs offer comfort, but the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe literally inches ahead with a more spacious interior. With the rear seats folded, you’ll get more than six cubic feet of bonus space, which is enough to fit in extra pieces of furniture or an extra bicycle. With the rear seats up, the bonus four cubic feet of cargo room allows you to pack a few more grocery bags and luggage cases.

Blending Epic Drives with Safe Drives

Who says fun drives can’t be safe? When you’re behind the wheel of the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe, standard Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection sends you a warning when fender benders and accidents with cars and pedestrians ahead seem imminent. If you don’t react by getting out of the way or braking, your 2020 Santa Fe automatically brakes.

Also standard is Lane Keeping Assist to prevent you from getting into side collisions and cutting off other drivers by accident. Anytime you leave your lane without a signal, alerts and gentle steering inputs help you re-center.

Long drives get tiring? To let you know when your driving suffers as a result, standard Driver Attention Warning sends you an alert upon detecting distracted or drowsy driving. This gives you a chance to pull over and take a break.

With standard Rear Occupant Alert, you’ll remember to always check your back seat for pets, kids, and valuable belongings before you leave.

When considering all the safety features the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe brings your drives, it’s no wonder this SUV won KBB’s Long-Term Ownership Value Award.

Ride in the 2020 Nissan Murano, and Automatic Emergency Braking and Driver Alertness are standard features. Meanwhile, Intelligent Lane Intervention and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection are available for keeping your drives safe.

For this round, the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe takes the win for offering many standard safety features that are actually practical for your drives—like helping you keep to your lane when the I-4 gets curvy.
