2020 Hyundai Santa Fe Cargo Space and Seating Capacity

Just How Spacious is the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe?

Korean auto-manufacturer Hyundai is on the rise in the US. Their vehicles are the rare combination of feature-rich, reliable, and affordable. This is especially noteworthy given that their offerings are consistently less costly than the competition while being of consistently higher quality. We’re not quite sure how they manage it, but you won’t see us complaining.

Among their vehicles is the Santa Fe, a popular midsize SUV. Many of those looking to purchase SUVs want them for their ability to transport people and cargo. How does the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe stack up?

Spacious Seating

The Santa Fe can seat five adults with ease. And when you see the measurements, that makes sense. The front row has 41.2 inches of head room, 44.1 inches of leg room, 59.1 inches of shoulder room, and 57.5 inches of hip room. It’s equally spacious in back, with head room at 39.2 inches, leg room of 44.1 inches, shoulder room measuring 59.1 inches, and 56.3 inches of hip room. No matter your height, you’ll fit just fine in the Santa Fe, whether you’re in the back or the front.

Competitive Cargo Capacity

With a vehicle full of passengers, you still get 35.9 cubic feet of storage behind the rear seats. While being able to fit the whole family or your all your friends into your SUV is great, sometimes you need to move a whole lotta stuff in as few trips as possible. Preferably in one trip. Don’t worry, with the rear seats folded down, the already-considerable 35.9 cubic feet doubles to 71.3 cubic feet. So yeah, you’ll have the space to fit just about anything.
