It’s no longer the All-New 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe that you know. The All-New 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe takes its place, ditching the bulbous shape and on-road focus of its predecessor in favor of square sheet metal that conceals the more adventurous nature of this fifth-generation SUV. The most recent Santa Fe attempts to venture farther from the beaten route than any of its predecessors, even though it is not a Jeep Wrangler substitute. 

H Is for Hyundai

The exterior and interior of the All-New 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe are adorned with H-shaped stylistic elements. This covers the dashboard design, air vents, seat upholstery, and headlight and taillight illumination patterns.

C-Pillar Grab Handles

The All-New 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe boxy shape appears to be specifically designed for a rooftop-mounted device, such as a freight box or tent. Hyundai equips the Santa Fe with outside grab grips positioned on the C-pillar, making it easier to grasp whatever is installed atop the SUV. Getting your foothold on the top of the tire, lifting your legs over the wheels, and grabbing onto anything on the roof should be easier than ever with this extra leverage.

Santa Fe in the (UV-C) Sanitization Business

Hyundai has equipped the 2024 Santa Fe with a UV-C sanitizing box, utilizing UV-C light’s capacity to eradicate a range of viruses and germs.  But bear in mind that this compartment targets bacteria that you can’t see in the first place, so it doesn’t wash your phone—that is, it doesn’t remove smudges.

Dual Wireless Phone Chargers

While many modern automobiles come equipped with wireless phone chargers, the Santa Fe is one of the few that can simultaneously charge two phones. More room was created on the center console by Hyundai moving the gearshift knob to the steering column. The sticky material is strong enough to hold your charged phones in place while you’re driving.

Third-Row Seating

For 2024, the Santa Fe model line will once again include a third-row seat. Hyundai removed the three-row seating option from its mid-size SUV for the fourth generation of the Santa Fe (at least in North America), despite previously offering the feature on the third-generation 2013–2018 Santa Fe (later renamed Santa Fe XL for 2019). Although the third row of the larger Palisade provides greater room for passengers, Santa Fe’s third row adds even more adaptability to this Hyundai SUV with reclining seat backs.

La-Z-Boy-Like Relaxation Seats

The 2024 Santa Fe’s third row of seats may increase the SUV’s versatility over its predecessor, but the true show-stopper is its so-called Relaxation Seat. Similar to the battery-electric Ioniq 5 units, the Santa Fe is equipped with front seats that resemble La-Z-Boys and have elevating leg rests. With these seats, you can kick back and sleep without the need for a rooftop tent—that is, if you’re not driving.

Power-Operated Second-Row Seats

The Santa Fe’s optional second-row captain’s chairs include power adjustments and heating capabilities. They recline and the bottom cushion can be adjusted up and down with a button push, but there is still a manual handle beneath the front of the seat that propels them forward and backward.

Innovative Storage

A dual-hinged lid on the console between the front seats allows access from the front or the rear of the compartment. Additionally, there is a reasonably sized sliding tray that is accessible from the second-row seats.

Highway Driver Assist

The newest driver-assistance technology from Hyundai, known as Highway Driving Assist II, is exclusive to the Santa Fe Calligraphy. Beyond adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist, this feature can also do autonomous lane changes when you engage the turn signal.

However, there’s a catch: it turns out that wearing sunglasses prevents the system from functioning. An alert stating, “Driver assistance system limited,” appears. The driver’s entire face is hidden.” You will therefore have to decide between using your sunglasses and cruise control on sunny days.

Fingerprint Scanner

The device situated to the left of the digital gauge cluster, like the home button on an iPhone, is a fingerprint reader that may be paired with the Hyundai app to enable specific features. For example, you can use your fingerprint to unlock your profile through Hyundai’s Bluelink communication system or to unlock specific features and private information from the infotainment screen by tapping it. The car can be started with it as well.
