Two of the most popular trims are the SE and SE Ultimate. For 2018, Hyundai has made a few changes to the interior design, but the optional packages for both versions are carried over from last year. The base trim SE isn't as lavishly appointed as the SE, and there are fewer safety systems available, but it certainly has the roomy interior that you want, and the price is appealing. The SE Ultimate is more expensive, but it adds on some popular features as standard equipment, and the Tech package is worth the extra out-of-pocket expense. Both trims are powered by a capable V6 engine, and all-wheel drive is available.

Package Options

You can purchase the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe SE with a Premium package that adds on dual power side mirrors with integrated turn signals, a hands-free smart liftgate, a proximity key with push-button start, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Premium door sill plates and front LED fog lights are also included with the package. Opting for the Premium package also gets you an auto-dimming inside rearview mirror with HomeLink and compass. The Premium package also adds on several safety features discussed below. The SE Ultimate can be purchased with a Tech package that includes the Smart Cruise Control system, an electronic parking brake with automatic vehicle hold, and high intensity discharge headlights.


The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe is designed for comfort and functionality. The forward controls are laid out in a no-nonsense manner and are easy to reach. The second-row seats slide forward and aft, making for easy entry and exit. The SE trim comes with a power-adjustable driver's seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a six-speaker audio system. The 7-inch screen display is paired to an infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SE Ultimate steps it up with a sunroof, leather seating, heated front seats, and a 12-speaker stereo system. There's also third-row USB port access and a larger, 8-inch screen display. The SE Ultimate also features ventilated front seats and a power-adjustable front passenger seat.

Safety And Security

Both the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe SE and SE Ultimate come with all the basic safety equipment including anti-lock brakes and stability control. Driver and front passenger airbags, a driver knee airbag, and roof-mounted side-curtain bags are standard. The SE and Ultimate also feature the second-row LATCH system of anchors and tethers for child safety seats, front seatbelt pretensioners, and a tire pressure monitoring system. If the SE is purchased with the Premium package, add-ons include blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert. The SE Ultimate, when purchased with the Tech package, adds on lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking. Optional features for the SE Ultimate include dynamic bending light headlights and high beam assist. These can be added without the purchase of the Tech package.
