2018 Hyundai Santa Fe shoppers are often interested in the difference between the SE and SE Ultimate trims. In this comparison, we look at how the editions are similar and different.


Both models have a 3.3-liter V6 engine. This spits out 290 horsepower and 252 lb.-ft. of torque. A six-speed automatic is paired with front-wheel drive. You can also get all-wheel drive to help with our cold winters. The Hyundai warranty runs for 10 years or 100,000 miles. That’s four or five years longer than the typical powertrain warranty. In addition, roadside assistance coverage is free for five years/unlimited miles.


The SE has most of what tech geeks expect from an SUV. The seven-inch screen controls your Bluetooth streaming audio and other functions. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay allow Android smartphone users and iPhone users to make more out of their system. This expands the available apps and enables more voice commands. Hyundai’s Blue Link and satellite radio capability round out the system. SE Ultimate editions add an eight-inch touchscreen with navigation. It also has 12 speakers instead of the basic six. Other extras include a third-row USB port and a cargo-area 115-volt outlet.


The Santa Fe has earned Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute. If you choose the SE Ultimate, you can get a package with today’s crash avoidance features. To relieve the driver’s stress, this includes adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams. To keep the Santa Fe out of harm’s way, you have a lane departure warning, a forward collision warning, and automatic braking mitigation. With the available 360-degree camera, the driver can see the entire perimeter of the car and avoid any people, cars or obstacles in the area. To prevent a side swipe, the vehicle offers a rear cross-traffic alert and a blind spot monitor.
