The Santa Fe XL replaces the Veracruz
as Hyundai's three-row, mid-size crossover, capitalizing on the Santa Fe's popularity among utility vehicle shoppers. As well as being larger than the Santa Fe Sport, the XL also adds refinement in the form of a V6 engine not offered in the Sport
. While pricing is value-added, the features list includes niceties that push the Santa Fe XL toward the premium end of the segment.
