How does the Hyundai hands-free auto liftgate work?

Hyundai Hands-Free Auto Liftgate FAQs and Guide

One sweet feature of the latest Hyundai models is the hands-free auto liftgate. Having debuted in 2015, this gizmo ups the convenience of other automatically-opening hatches by not requiring the user to actually do anything besides stand there.

Unlike other brands that make users awkwardly wave one their feet underneath or even (gasp) press a physical button, the hands-free auto liftgate from Hyundai simply senses when the vehicle’s key is in its vicinity for three seconds and then opens automatically.

But as with any new technology, users have a lot of questions. Read on below for some answers to common ones regarding the Hyundai hands-free auto liftgate. Continue reading

2020 Santa Fe Seating Capacity and Interior

The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe boasts many positive qualities that have driven droves of admirers to the figurative feet of this midsize SUV. Not least of all, it’s a great value, boasting a starting price less than most others in its class at not just the start, but both ends of its trim range.

The “midsize” designation has left many prospective buyers wondering, however: does the 2020 Santa Fe have three rows of seats?

View Our New Hyundai Santa Fe Inventory

No, the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe comes with two rows of seats in every incarnation. Those in need of three rows in their vehicle should turn instead to the all-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade, a model which just debuted for this current year.

In the past, Hyundai offered a three row Santa Fe XL. However, this model’s existence has now been co-opted by the release of the Palisade.

2020 Hyundai Palisade Seating and Interior

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade also enjoys the honor of being an acclaimed midsize SUV. With its three rows, it boasts seating for up to eight people, while still granting plenty of legroom to all. Everyone will be kept happy as well with tons of cupholders and USB ports.

The vehicle also boasts a sizeable volume of cargo space. The interior is elegant, and the ride is smooth and balanced, resulting in optimal comfort. The whole package is powered by a standard V6 engine loaded with plenty of strength. Overall, this is a well-rounded machine, one that gifts buyers a lot of content for the money.

Santa Fe Interior and Seating

The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe has seating for up to five in its comfortable interior. Users laud the abundance of passenger space, along with the high-quality environment. There’s plenty of room for adults all around, and the rear seats even recline as an added bonus. The cabin is attractive and outfitted with high-end materials.

How much cargo space is in the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe?

The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe still manages to boast solid cargo space for a two-row machine: it gets 35.9 cubic-feet behind the second row, and 71.3 cubic-feet with the rear seats folded.

Is the 2020 Hyundai Sonata AWD?

All-Wheel Drive Capability of the 2020 Sonata

While the 2020 Hyundai Sonata is not an SUV, many consumers find themselves wondering if it can be had with power in all four of its wheels. After all, other midsize sedans like the Subaru Legacy and Nissan Altima do feature the option of all-wheel drive. Does the 2020 Hyundai Sonata have AWD?

View Our New Hyundai Sonata Inventory

No, the 2020 Hyundai Sonata does not offer all-wheel drive. Instead, it comes with front-wheel drive on every trim level. That being said, this vehicle is still quite a performer; it can produce up to 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque with its standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Stepping up to the optional 1.6-liter four-cylinder drops that hp to 180 but raises the torque to 195 pound-feet.

Overall, though, the 2020 Sonata focuses on comfort over athleticism. The model has been fully redesigned and now features one of the nicest interiors in the class. It embodies the sultry “Sensuous Sportiness” design philosophy that Hyundai is now implementing across its brand.

Pre-Release Whispers of Sonata AWD

Before the 2020 Hyundai Sonata was released, there were rumors that the all-new model would have all-wheel drive. Jae Young Kim, the Hyundai director of product division, was asked about the possibility of an AWD Sonata in the U.S. His response?

“Yes… we are currently reviewing the need for all-wheel drive in [the US] market.”

For better or worse, the need must not have been determined to be great enough this time around.

Is all-wheel drive helpful for daily driving?

American drivers tend to value AWD because of a common perception that it is good for tackling variable road and weather conditions. While this is true, the feature is often not as useful as imagined. Snow tires, for example, are much more effective in slippery winter conditions than all-wheel drive.

All-wheel drive is handy for off-roading. However, off-roading is best done in an SUV or crossover with a high ride height. Not all consumers are into such high-flyers, which is why there continues to be such an enduring demand for midsize cars like the 2020 Hyundai Sonata.

What engines are available for the 2020 Hyundai Kona?

The Kona remains the newest and smallest line of SUV models from Hyundai, having just debuted in 2017 and hit the streets in the beginning of 2018. Despite its infancy, the 2019 models won a share of top awards; both the electric and non-electric variations were the proud recipients of the 2019 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year award, an accolade given out each January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The Hyundai Kona is the first subcompact crossover SUV to ever receive this honor. In a similar vein, the 2019 Kona took the top award for its class last year from Kelley Blue Book; this award being the aptly named Kelley Blue Book Subcompact SUV Best Buy Award.

With this in mind, it goes without saying that we’re really excited about the 2020 Hyundai Kona which has recently arrived on our dealership lot here in Salisbury. Many customers have been wondering just what is going on under the hood of this vehicle. This is why we’ve decided to compile a (rhetorical) breakdown on the engines available for the 2020 Hyundai Kona. Enjoy.
