The new 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe holds firm as it enters the new model year. There are no changes in price overall which customers will like. Drivers like the idea of a vehicle with value and people have come to expect it from this brand. Handling, suspension and overall style highlight this year's Santa Fe. There has also been a simplification of sorts with the ability to continue to offer features and equipment that are standard and make a difference. The 2017 Santa Fe is a vehicle that is attractive to lots of different drivers and is a complete work of art.
Under the Santa Fe's Hood
This vehicle gets a 2.4-liter motor that has four cylinders or a 2.0 four-cylinder motor that is turbo-charged. Santa Fe models are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that shifts very smoothly. Other great highlights include a direct injection engine and Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing. The 2.4-liter motor generates 190 horsepower and a great 181 lb. ft. of torque. The Santa Fe comes standard with front wheel drive but can be upgrade to all-wheel drive which is great for variable weather conditions. The 2.4-liter engine returns 20 miles per gallon in the city and 27 miles per gallon on the highway. Selecting the all-wheel drive choice gets you 19 miles per gallon operating in the city and 25 miles per gallon operating on the highway. The turbocharged 2.0-liter creates 264 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is at 19 miles per gallon city and 27 miles per gallon highway and 18 miles per gallon in city and 24 miles per gallon on the highway for all-wheel drive.
Design of Hyundai Santa Fe
The Santa Fe Sport has many features coming standard including such things as body color power mirrors that are heated as well as keyless entry with alarm that can be used remotely, there are LED headlight accents, Bluetooth technology which helps in both the safety and convenience departments and is hands-free as well as steering wheel mounted audio and cruise controls. Amenities and options on board the Santa Fe are ones that are typically seen on luxury sedans and include sunroofs, audio systems with top tier designer setups, navigation tools that are easily interpreted and new xenon headlights. Another neat feature is the Hands-Free Smart Liftgate setup which assists in helping people enter the cargo space when their hands aren't free.
