2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Seating

December 7th, 2020 by
2021 Hyundai Santa Fe front seats

A common question that we hear at Greenway Hyundai of the Shoals is, “Do all Hyundai Santa Fe models have a 3rd-row seat?” While the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe does not come with 3rd-row seats, that does not mean it is short on cabin space. The Santa Fe has ample room for both passengers and cargo, despite not having three rows of seats.

Do you remember shopping for a Hyundai Santa Fe with 3rd-row seating a few years back? You’re not imagining it; older Santa Fe models could seat 6 or 7, depending on the trim. The modern Hyundai Santa Fe fills the role of the former Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport and is a five-seater SUV now.

Santa Fe Interior Dimensions

The roomy Santa Fe interior is ideal for daily drives and family road trips in Florence. While the Santa Fe isn’t a Hyundai with 3rd-row seating, you never have to worry about feeling cramped thanks to its spacious dimensions:

  • Passenger Volume: 110.7 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume behind 1st row: 71.3 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume behind 2nd row: 35.9 cubic feet
  • Headroom (1st/2nd row): 41.2/39.2 inches
  • Legroom (1st/2nd row): 44.1/40.9 inches
  • Hiproom (1st/2nd row): 57.5/56.3 inches

What’s more? The Hyundai Santa Fe interior is outfitted with rear 60/40 split-folding seats, making it easy to configure the cabin to meet your needs.

Sante Fe Interior Amenities

The Hyundai Santa Fe can also be equipped with a wealth of interior features sure to take your Muscle Shoals commute to the next level:

  • 6-way adjustable driver seat
  • 2-way power lumbar passenger seat
  • Heated front seats (SEL trim and above)
  • Heated rear seats (Ultimate trim and above)
  • 7-inch display audio system
  • Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®
  • Steering-wheel-mounted controls
  • Bluetooth® hands-free phone system
  • BlueLink® Telematics System, Connected Care, and Remote Package (SEL trim and above)

Hyundai SUV Models With a Third Row

If you are still interested in a Hyundai with 3rd-row seating, may we suggest the Hyundai Palisade? It seats up to eight people with three spacious rows without sacrificing cargo space:

  • Cargo Capacity (Behind the Front Seats): 86.4 cubic feet
  • Cargo Capacity (Behind the 2nd-Row Seats): 45.8 cubic feet
  • Cargo Capacity (Behind the 3rd-Row Seats): 18 cubic feet
