So, if you’re at all familiar with Hyundai SUVs you know that for years their SUV lineup included the Santa Fe Sport, a two-row crossover, and the Santa Fe, a three-row crossover. Now, for the 2019 models, there’s been a name change. The Santa Fe Sport is dropping the “Sport” part of its name so it’s now just the 2019 Santa Fe. Meanwhile, the old Santa Fe will now be known as the 2019 Santa Fe XL. 

Basically, what would be the 2019 Santa Fe Sport is now just the 2019 Santa Fe, and what would be the 2019 Santa Fe will now be the 2019 Santa Fe XL. Also, Hyundai will debut a new three-row crossover in the next year or so. It can be pretty confusing, but hopefully, that cleared things up a little bit!
