The standard GDI 2.4L 4-cylinder engine is a high-tech wonder. It features Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) and Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) to deliver 190 hp and 181 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s more standard horsepower than Toyota Venza and Chevy Equinox. And for more power, you can select the available 2.0T with 265 hp.
Extensive computer modeling and powertrain performance mapping were used to modify engine and transmission control, giving you improved real-world fuel economy—up to 7% based on internal tests.
This 2.0L GDI 4-cylinder engine features a twin-scroll turbo that pumps out 265 hp and 269 lb.-ft. of torque. Engineered to run on regular unleaded gas, its highly advanced design helps improve combustion efficiency and provides low-engine-speed efficiency.
Dynamic side character lines add to the aerodynamic flow while design elements and chrome accents on the grille and door handles create a distinctly premium feeling. Daytime Running Lights (DRL) are standard and provide added visibility, while the available HID Xenon headlights with LED accents and LED tail lights provide just the right finishing touches.
The best designs offer tangible benefits that go beyond their good looks. Which is clearly the case with the Santa Fe Sport. The advantage: A more aerodynamic design that can help improve MPG.
When it comes to wheels you have plenty of choices. The standard 17-inch alloy wheels will generate plenty of traction, and compliments. The 18-inch alloy wheels are standard on the 2.0T model and if you’re ready to step things up, check out the available 19-inch alloy wheels.
Second-row passengers get the unmistakable feeling of luxury from the available heated rear seats, integrated sunshades and second-row seats that slide and recline. In addition, the rear seats have a 40/20/40 split-folding design for added flexibility and functionality when you need to carry both passengers and gear, like snowboards or skis.
Sight and sound enhancements include an available 8-inch touchscreen plus a navigation system and a premium 550-watt Infinity® Logic 7® audio system with 12 speakers. The available 4.3-inch touchscreen color audio display with rearview camera offers inputs that let you connect an iPod®, iPhone® or other music sources via USB or auxiliary input jacks.
Hyundai’s innovative Blue Link Telematics System is available on the Santa Fe Sport and has an array of features to make your life easier. Connect to Blue Link through your smartphone, a web application or an in-car system to start your vehicle remotely, locate a gas station, find a shortcut, learn about mechanical issues, call for help and much more. Blue Link Connected Care is provided for a complimentary 1-year trial period. Enrollment is required to activate this feature.
Approach your Santa Fe Sport with the available Proximity Key in your pocket and enjoy the ultimate convenience. No more fumbling with the key when you’ve got a key that enables your car to recognize you. Unlock or lock your car, start the engine with the push of a button and go.
This available radar-based system helps detect when a vehicle is in the driver’s blind spot and provides both an audible and a visual alert to help keep you aware as you move down the road. When reverse gear is selected, Rear Cross-traffic Alert helps identify and warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the side.
The advantage of this available safety-technology feature is clear. Lane Change Assist measures the closing speed of an approaching vehicle in the adjacent lane to determine if changing lanes is safe and if it’s not, gives the driver an audible and visual warning.
Emergency braking maneuvers can cause wheels to lock up and skid, resulting in a loss of steering control exactly when you need it most. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps prevent the possibility of wheel lockup under hard braking, and rapidly pulses the brakes to help you retain steering control as you come to a stop.
Along with the rearview camera, Santa Fe Sport’s available Rear Parking Assistance System makes backing up easier. Sensors in the rear bumper give you an audible warning that increases in frequency and tone as you get closer to objects it detects in the area behind your vehicle.
