2018 Hyundai Santa Fe - Overview

With its debut in 2000, the Hyundai Santa Fe could have easily become an also-ran in an increasingly crowded crossover segment. Instead, it has risen to become one of the more popular choices out there-thanks to its styling, performance, interior space, a generous number of standard features, and outstanding warranty coverage. With an update for the 2017 model year-halfway through the nameplate's third generation of production-there's are no major changes made to the 2018 version. The Sport variant, which Hyundai first released in 2012, is still around as a choice for customers who prefer a slightly smaller yet peppier version of the Santa Fe.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe - Interior

As a mid-size crossover SUV, the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a passenger volume of 108 cubic feet, with two rows of seats accommodating up to five people. Standard cargo volume is measured at 35.4 cubic feet; you can fold down the rear bench-style seat to expand it to 71.5 cubic feet. Entertainment is provided by a six-speaker audio system, which includes AM/FM radio, a single-disc CD player with MP3 playback capability, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for controlling the system with your smartphone, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, a USB port and an auxiliary audio jack for connecting mobile devices, and a 5-inch screen for displaying media information. Optional on the Sport are features such as a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, GPS navigation, a larger display screen (7- or 8-inch), front-seat power adjustability and heating capability, HD Radio, a three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio, and proximity key entry with push-button engine start.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe - Exterior

Riding on 17-inch alloy wheels, the Santa Fe Sport uses LED-accented projector headlights that can be automatically switch on and off depending on the amount of light outside. On the front doors are body-color power manual-folding side mirrors, and a body-color rear spoiler with center high-mount stop light provides improved aerodynamics. Optional on the Sport are roof side rails for additional cargo space, heating capability and turn-signal indicators on the side mirrors, LED daytime running lights for enforcing conspicuity with sharp illumination, and hands-free operation on the liftgate.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe - Mechanical/Powertrain

Powering the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine, which produces 185 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and 178 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 RPM. Hooked up to the engine is a 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC technology for enabling gear shifting on demand. Although the standard drivetrain is a front-wheel drive, you can opt for an all-wheel-drive system for enhanced traction control on slippery surfaces. Bumps are absorbed by the Santa Fe Sport's MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension with gas-filled dampers, shock absorbers, and stabilizer bars. The motor-driven power steering-which uses a standalone power source in the form of an electric motor, rather than draining power from the engine-provides a turning circle diameter of 35.8 cubic feet.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe - Safety

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport relies on a driver's knee airbag, dual front impact airbags, dual side impact airbags, and a pair of side curtain airbags for cushioning and restraint when in a car accident. Hill start assist control ensures that you don't roll backwards when starting to drive up a steep slope, and downhill brake control enables safe driving down one. The four-wheel disc brakes, which provide short stopping distances, are accompanied by anti-lock braking for preventing wheel lock-up during abrupt stops, electronic brake-force distribution for proper allocation of braking power to the wheels, and brake assist for additional stopping force when needed. And electric vehicle stability control and traction control work together to maintain your intended driving path and maximizing tire contact with the road, respectively. Security is provided by a remote keyless entry system with panic alarm. For enhancing safety on the Santa Fe Sport, Hyundai offers blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, lane change assist, and a multi-view camera with rear parking sensors as options.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe - Additional Trim Level Information

With the Santa Fe Sport, you can upgrade to either of two trims: 2.0T and 2.0T Ultimate. The "2.0T" prefix stands for the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that goes on each trim; it produces 240 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and 260 lb-ft of torque at up to 3,500 RPM. The Sport 2.0T's key features include:
