Use your power and connections to get the most out of every drive. The available Infinity® Logic 7® Surround Sound Audio System has 550 watts with 12 speakers.

And Bluetooth® is standard, so you can stream music or make and receive calls while staying focused on the road.
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.
One of the elements in Santa Fe Sport’s Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system, Electronic Stability Control uses sensors in the steering system and at each wheel to compare where you want to go with where the car is heading. If a difference between the two is detected, Electronic Stability Control slows the appropriate wheel to redirect the car and help keep you on course.
