Most people associate Hyundai with its affordable, reliable sedans, particularly the best-selling Elantra and Sonata. But the Korean automaker’s crossover SUVs have become more popular in recent months, and for good reason. Its family-oriented crossovers like the Santa Fe offer an array of features and a spacious, reliable ride at a price within any family’s budget. Discover what the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe has to offer.
What lies under the hood
To deliver a balance of strength and efficiency, the Hyundai Santa Fe bears a 3.3-liter DOHC V6 engine that delivers more strength than its competitors: 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. Guided by a six-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®, the Santa Fe delivers enough muscle to tow average recreational items like jet skis.
While the basic Santa Fe comes with front-wheel drive, it can be equipped with all-wheel drive that still delivers an EPA-estimated 20 mpg combined city-highway fuel efficiency.*
Keeping cozy in the cabin
As an adventurous family vehicle, the Santa Fe boasts a comfortable cabin equipped for long drives. Total interior volume is 160 cubic feet; cargo storage comprises 13.5 to 80 cubic feet of that overall space. The generous dimensions continue to the third-row seats which yield 31 inches of leg room and 54 inches of shoulder room.
The cabin stays comfortable with standard features like Dual front auto temperature control with Clean Air ionizer, YES Essentials® stain-resistant cloth upholstery and rear seat ventilation. Upgraded versions of the Santa Fe add heated leather seating, ventilated front seats and second-row captain’s chairs.
Safety is a priority
Transporting your family shouldn’t be a risky endeavor, so the brand has designed the Santa Fe to earn stellar safety scores. In addition to durability in collisions, all Santa Fe models come with an array of safety features to assist when it matters most. Tools include a rearview camera, Vehicle Stability Management system, Downhill Brake Control, automatic control of projector headlights with LED accents and more. Optional add-ons include Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), Lane Change Assist and rear parking sensors.
Consider the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe when shopping for your next family vehicle.
