The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL is a midsize three-row crossover that competes with the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander and Ford Explorer.
The Santa Fe line has been shuffled for the 2019 model year. This year’s Santa Fe XL is the same as 2018’s standard Santa Fe, and the Santa Fe Sport is now the non-XL model. Beyond the name change, the Santa Fe XL is a complete carryover from last year’s Santa Fe.
