The 3.3L V6 engine provides potent response. It creates an effortless flow of power, torque and surprising fuel efficiency using advancements that include Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) and Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI).
The Santa Fe’s sophisticated V6 engine generates 290 hp and 252 lb.-ft. of torque—that’s more standard V6 horsepower than both the Toyota Highlander and the Honda Pilot.* The standard trailer-prep package, with flush-mounted, tow-hitch design and 5,000 lbs. of towing capacity, puts all of that power to good use.
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. The result, Santa Fe delivers an EPA-estimated 25 MPG Highway.
No need to kick or shuffle your feet to open the rear liftgate! You can automatically open it with this available feature by simply standing within three feet behind the vehicle for more than three seconds with the Proximity Key. The handy height-adjustable function allows users to stop the tailgate at various heights to avoid low overhangs. And with up to 80 cubic feet of cargo space you’ve got the room to bring along all of the essential gear you need for your next adventure.
The standard 18-inch alloy wheels will generate plenty of traction, and compliments. If you’re ready to step things up, the available 19-inch alloy wheels are just the ticket.
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 (DRLs) are standard, while the available HID Xenon headlights with LED accents and LED tail lights provide just the right finishing touches.
Research has shown that sunlight and fresh air are good for you. This huge, available panoramic sunroof gives you more of both compared to regular-sized sunroofs. Drive healthy.
Second-row passengers get the unmistakable feeling of luxury from the available heated rear seats, integrated side sunshades and second-row seats that slide and recline. In addition, the second-row seats have added flexibility and functionality with their 40/20/40 split-folding design.
Approach your Santa Fe 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.
Hyundai’s innovative Blue Link Telematics System comes standard on most Santa Fe trims. An array of features, to help make your life easier, is available through your smartphone, web or in-vehicle. Access features like Remote Start, locate your next destination with Destination Search powered by Google™ or call for help and much more with a push of a button.
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.
Along with the standard rearview camera, Santa Fe's available Rear Parking Sensors make backing up easier. The 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.
With seven airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag, the Santa Fe has more standard airbags than the Honda Pilot and Nissan Pathfinder.
