Matthews NC - 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe's Overview

Technology - 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe

The 2020 Santa Fe ranks as one of the most technologically advanced in its class, while the RAV4 continues to lag behind in this area. Wireless charging is a big deal in today's heavily connected world, and only the Santa Fe gives you wireless charging. It's missing from the RAV4's capabilities entirely. The Santa Fe is the only vehicle offering up HD Radio as well, something that a lot of families appreciate using in conjunction with their infotainment system. The Santa Fe's 8-inch touchscreen is larger than we usually expect to see at this price point, so it's nicely outfitted with tech you need to stay connected. Hyundai is serving Matthews Charlotte Monroe with more than a few tech goodies on the Santa Fe. You can ask Keffer Hyundai for a full list of tech perks.

Interior - 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe in Matthews NC

The interior of the Santa Fe is nicer than the RAV4's interior on the whole. With gorgeous color options on the inside, the Santa Fe stands out in everywhere. The RAV4 seems content to just blend in and get things done in a practical way. For a more beautifully stitched interior, the Santa Fe is your best choice. It features far more head and legroom than the RAV4 as well. We're not sure what Toyota was thinking when it created the RAV4, but it wasn't considering taller and wider passengers at all. Your Santa Fe has a generous amount of room for full grown passengers who want to stretch out and appreciate the view a little more.

And the view inside the Santa Fe is indeed beautiful. With the option for a panoramic sunroof and Surround View Monitor, front seat passengers and backseat alike can enjoy a room with a view. For people with children, the Surround View Monitor is truly a blessing.

Powertrain - Hyundai Santa Fe specs in Matthews NC

The first thing you'll notice is that the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe features a 2.0L engine good for 235 horsepower. The RAV4 dishes out 219 horsepower at its highest level, but it's definitely not going to win any races against the Santa Fe this year. We'd also like to point out that the RAV's torque is substantially lower than the Santa Fe's. With 260 lbs-ft of torque, the Santa Fe can out-pull the best in class. Your RAV4 on the other hand only offers up 163 lbs-ft of torque. It's a wide margin of victory for the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Our dealership is happy to be serving Matthews Charlotte Monroe customers with a large variety of vehicles just like the Santa Fe. As you can see, it soundly defeats the RAV4 in a head-to-head matchup this year (on just about every category you can imagine). We appreciate the power of the new Santa Fe powertrain and feel like it will give you a lot more confident drive. Handling on the new Santa Fe is great, too, thanks to perfect transmission transitions and an improved chassis. It's a rigid drive that puts you in total control. Call us today to test drive it.
