Safety features such as automatic high-beam headlights, a blind-spot monitoring system, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist can also be added to the new Santa Fe, as well as a new rear-seat occupant alert system and a safe-exit assist function.

All three engines couple with a Hyundai-built eight-speed automatic transmission to put power to the ground.
