Starting in 2013, the Santa Fe now comes in a 6 seater option (in addition to the 7-seater that had been offered for many years). The 6-seater has 1 tether anchor in the 3rd row, while the 7-seater has zero tether anchors in the 3rd row.
In 2010-2012, the Hyundai Santa Fe did not offer the option for a 3rd row (and the 2nd row for this model year range looks identical to the ’09 Santa Fe).
2007 was the first year this vehicle was offered with the option of a 3rd row. It was available as a 2-row SUV (5-seater) or 3-row SUV (7-seater).
2007 saw the introduction of a head restraint for 2C. 2C’s shoulder belt no longer comes from the roof – it now comes from the vehicle seat.
The vehicle was only offered as a 5-seater for this model year range. 2C has a shoulder belt that comes from the roof (but no head restraint) for this model year range.
