Why Buy the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

While the Hyundai Santa Fe has built a reputation for being an attractive, spacious, and handsomely equipped crossover SUV, the Sport variant emphasizes its performance attributes and orientation. First released in 2012, the Santa Fe Sport received a lot of updates in the 2017 model year. As a result, the 2018 is virtually unchanged. The midsize crossover is split into regular Sport, Sport 2.0T, and Sport 2.0T Ultimate trims.

Mechanical / Powertrain - Request More Information

At the base level, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport SUV is powered by a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine, which produces 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. The other trims get the "2.oT" prefixes because they roll with a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 instead, which produces 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Hitched to the engine is a 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC technology for enabling gear shifting on demand. Front-wheel drive is standard, although you can go with an all-wheel-drive system instead for enhanced traction control on slippery surfaces. The MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension absorbs bumps and other sources of road turbulence. And 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 curb-to-curb turning diameter of 35.8 cubic feet.

Safety - Why Buy with Safety Features

For protection in the event of a car crash, the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport comes with a driver's knee airbag, dual front impact airbags, dual side impact airbags, and a pair of side curtain airbags. Other standard safety features on the vehicle include electronic vehicle stability control, traction control, hill start assist, a rearview camera, four-wheel disc brakes with electronic brake-force and brake assist, and downhill brake control. The combination of remote keyless entry and a panic alarm provides the vehicle with security. LED daytime running lights are added on the 2.oT and Ultimate for increased conspicuity, as well as blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change assist. The 2.oT Ultimate is the only trim with a multi-view camera with a rear parking assist system. Also, it's the only trim on which you can add smart cruise control, lane departure warning, high beam assist, dynamic bending light technology, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
