For 2020, the entry Santa Fe SE loses a few standard safety features such as blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert (they are available on the next trim up). The sliding second-row seat is also dropped, as are the SEL Plus and Ultimate trims. The SE gains a driver blind-spot mirror, while the Limited trim adds Hyundai's Blind View monitor.

The SEL with the optional Convenience and Premium package is the sweet spot in terms of feature content and value. We'd start your test drive with one of these and see if think you can live with it. Find a Hyundai Santa Fe for sale

2019 Honda CR-V -- Technically in a smaller vehicle segment than the Santa Fe, but in terms of its interior space and standard engine, it should be considered.
Used Toyota Highlander -- The Toyota Highlander is effectively sized in between the Santa Fe and most 3-row family crossovers. If you need a bit more space but are attracted to the Santa Fe's price, this would be a good used car alternative.
