2018 Hyundai Santa Fe SEL ULTIMATE | Chicago IL

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe - Overview

Although the mid-size crossover SUV is fiercely competitive, the Hyundai Santa Fe-thanks to its beefy powertrain, long list of standard features, and generous warranty coverage-is among the stand-outs. Now in its third production cycle, the Santa Fe is fresh off a 2017 refresh. As a result, the 2018 model year does not have any major updates. There are three models available on the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe, and the SEL ULTIMATE is the mid-tier choice, managing to strike the balance between affordability and being handsomely equipped.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe - Interior

The Hyundai Santa Fe is a three-row vehicle with leather upholstery. On the SEL ULTIMATE, you can seat up to seven, with passenger volume set at 146.6 cubic feet. Standard cargo volume is 13.5 cubic feet, although you can extend it up to 80 cubic feet by folding down the second and third rows. The front row-which has heating and cooling capability-consists of an 8-way power-adjustable driver seat with 4-way power lumbar support and an integrated memory system; and a 6-way power-adjustable passenger seat with power height adjustment. The second row joins the first in possessing heating capability. Infotainment on the Santa Fe SEL ULTIMATE is provided by a 12-speaker premium audio system-with an AM/FM radio tuner, single-disc CD/MP3 player, HD Radio, complimentary three-month SiriusXM satellite radio subscription, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for smartphone-based control, and an 8-inch touchscreen navigation. Additional comfort and convenience features on the trim include Bluetooth connectivity, proximity key entry with push-button engine start, air-filtering dual front automatic temperature control, a third-row USB port, heating on the leather-wrapped steering wheel, auto-dimming rearview mirror, garage-door opener, and a complimentary three-year subscription to a trio of Blue Link telematics packages (Connected Care, Remote, and Guidance) that offer services such as automatic collision notification, turn-by-turn navigation, vehicle health monitoring, roadside assistance, and remote vehicle start.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe - Exterior

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe SEL ULTIMATE has projector headlights with an automatic on/off switch in response to the amount of outside light. LED accents are integrated into the headlights to function as daytime running lamps for increased conspicuity when driving. Below the headlights are a pair of LED fog lights for long-lasting and penetrating illumination. At the sides are body-color power heated manual-folding outside mirrors with turn-signal indicators. On top of the crossover are roof rails for extra carrying-cargo capacity and a panoramic sunroof for cooler ventilation during the hotter months. At the back, you can open the liftgate without the need of your hands, and below it is a chrome-tipped dual exhaust system. The SEL ULTIMATE rides on 18-inch alloy wheels.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe - Mechanical/Powertrain

The workhorse on the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe SEL ULTIMATE is a 3.3-liter V6 engine, which generates 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. It is hitched to a 6-speed automatic transmission, which has SHIFTRONIC technology to simulate manual gear shifting. Although front-wheel drive is the standard drivetrain, you can choose an all-wheel-drive system to enhance traction control on slippery surfaces. Less-than-smooth surfaces are tamed by a MacPherson strut front suspension and a multi-link rear suspension. The motor-driven power steering-which relies on a standalone electric motor, rather than engine power-enables a turning circle diameter of 36.9 cubic feet.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe - Safety

For protection in the event of a car crash, the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe SEL ULTIMATE has a driver's knee airbag, dual front impact airbags, dual side impact airbags, and dual side curtain airbags. Other standard safety features include a multi-view camera with rear parking sensors, electronic vehicle stability control, four-wheel disc brakes, electronic brake-force distribution, anti-lock braking, hill start assist, downhill brake control, traction control, and the aforementioned remote keyless entry system with panic alarm to function as an anti-theft security system. Advanced safety features on the SEL ULTIMATE include blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change assist.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe - Additional Trim Level Information

The SEL ULTIMATE is placed below the Limited ULTIMATE, which is the top-level trim available on the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe. The only major difference between both trims is the maximum occupancy. While the SEL ULTIMATE can seat up to seven people with its three rows of seats (which includes a second-row bench-style seat), the Limited ULTIMATE has two captain's chairs at the second row, thus reducing maximum occupancy to six.
