21. Hyundai Santa Fe
2018 Sales: 59,185
Vs. 2017: -1.4%
Sales of Hyundai’s popular midsize Santa Fe crossover have slowed in the first half of 2018 in anticipation of the redesigned 2019 Santa Fe scheduled to go on sale in summer 2018. Santa Fe finished 2017 in the No. 14 position but has dropped to No. 21, even though sales for the first half of 2018 are only slightly off the 2017 total. Santa Fe has been Hyundai’s most successful SUV in the U.S. market, and the all-new fourth-generation 2019 Santa Fe looks to continue that trend with a bold new design, more interior space and improved ride comfort. For 2019 Santa Fe will be the model name for the 5-seat version, dropping the Santa Fe Sport name used for the 2018 model, while the 7-seat version will now be known as the Santa Fe XL. The 5-seat Santa Fe will offer more interior room with a 2.6-inch longer wheelbase, a 2.8-inch increase in overall length and an increase of almost half an inch in width. To improve visibility for the driver, the outside mirrors are mounted lower and farther back from A-pillars that have been reduced in size, and the rear quarter glass has been increased by more than 40 percent.
