They are also not putting a CD player in the 2019 Santa Fe.

[They are also not putting a CD player in the 2019 Santa Fe.

I went on the net to verify....several car makers are doing the same.
The dash mounted screen is the reason, so they claim.
My 2003 Kia Sportage had both a CD and Cassette player from the factory...
We'll never see those features again.

I don't think that's the real reason. Our 2017 Santa Fe Limited Ultimate has an 8" dash mounted nav screen and a CD player. I think the 2018s also have the nav screen and a CD player. The 2018s are the end of the 3rd generation of Santa Fes, the 2019s are the beginning of the 4th generation.

Losing the 3.3 engine in 2019 I think is a mistake. There are Santa Fes that are turning up with 300,000 miles on them. As noted, our '09 did OK towing a 3.000 lb camper over 7000 miles or so, never overheated in the desert while towing with the AC on, never leaked any fluids and is still in very good condition. The '20 heavy SUV (Pallasade?) that Hyundai will be rolling out is rumored to be powered by a turbocharged 3.3. IMHO the 3rd generation Santa Fes with the 3.3 engine are going to be the best Santa Fes.

Another cost saving venture $$ like eliminating vent windows...

Plan on buying a new 2019 S-F this week. A 2.4 liter SEL model that has everything that I want or need.
Got a great price of $26,000 even.. not incl. tax. Hard to pass up that price, now to decide on the color?
I hope that they give me a good trade in price on my Silver 2013 Ford Escape SE 1.6 Turbo "in mint cond." with only 39,000 miles a X-lent driver. Have added almost $1,000. in extras since new to dress it up.
Always garage kept and waxed 3 times a year. Sure hope I don't regret selling it !
