Differences Between Santa Fe SE and the Santa Fe SEL Trims

The 2020 Santa Fe is Georgia’s family-first SUV. This innovative four-door comfortably seats five passengers while offering the latest in technological and safety advancements. Choosing the Santa Fe is easy, but choosing the best trim level for your lifestyle can be a bit of a challenge. Take a look at our comparison guide and discover your perfect match.

Performance and Specs

The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe offers unmatched fuel economy and performance amongst other SUVs’. The SE starts at $26,275 MSRP and features an inline 2.0L 4-cylinder engine capable of producing 185 horsepower and 178 lb.-ft. of torque. The SEL offers the same superior powertrain and starts at $28,025 MSRP. Both vehicles come with an 8-speed automatic transmission equipped with the Hyundai exclusive SHIFTRONIC®, which allows drivers to choose between the ultimate control of a manual transmission and the effortless use of an automatic. While the SE and SEL may seem to offer the same performance, the SEL’s standard Drive Mode Select is what truly sets these two apart. The Drive Mode control system allows drivers to select between three modes that best suit driving conditions and matches their mood. This exciting piece of technology allows for a more personalized ride while maximizing the car’s fuel economy.

Interior Differences Between the SE and SEL

Now that you know the cars’ exceptional capabilities, let’s take a look at the interior. Both the SE and SEL come standard with breathable cloth seating and 2-way power lumbar support in the driver seat for those long trips. The SE has a 6-way adjustable driver seat while the SEL is equipped with an impressive 8-way power driver seat as well as heated seats. Both trim levels have a stunning 7’’ color touchscreen display audio system, but the SEL has an additional information display located in the driver’s view. The 7’’ TFT LCD multi-information display gives the driver helpful information and status updates on several vehicle functions. Both cars come with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® capabilities. The SEL also gives drivers unlimited entertainment with a complimentary 3-month trial subscription to SiriusXM®. If you are looking for a luxurious car with maximum comfort, the SEL offers that and more.

Safety Features on the 2020 Hyundai SE and Hyundai SEL

Safety is of the utmost importance when choosing your vehicle. The SEL has a multitude of safety capabilities, including Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA), Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA), Safe Exit Assist (SEA), and much more. Both vehicles come standard with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FCA-Ped), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), and Driver Attention Warning (DAW) to protect those inside the vehicle as well as those on the outside. Both the SE and SEL are Top Safety Picks for the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety for 2020. Meaning these vehicles are unmatched in terms of safety, reliability, and affordability, making them the perfect car for any driver.

Which of these Santa Fe Trims Is the Right Fit For You?

While some differences separate the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe SE from the SEL, the main difference is the price. For an extra $1,750, you get a customizable driving experience, advanced interior features, and additional safety capabilities in the Hyundai SEL. Both trim levels come with a range of optional convenience and premium packages to ensure your vehicle is perfect for you. These will, of course, determine the final price of the vehicle, but they are worth looking at. If you’re not one for the bells and whistles, the SE may just be your perfect match. If you’re looking for top-of-the-line features, the SEL was made for you at an amazing value.
