Under the Hood

In terms of engine might, each of the Santa Fe models is powered by a standard 3.3L V6 engine that delivers 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. This is more standard V6 horsepower than is offered in various popular competitors, including the Toyota Highlander, the Honda Pilot, the Nissan Pathfinder, and the Mazda CX-9.

Performance-enhancing features bolster the Santa Fe's powerhouse engine, including dual continuously variable valve timing and gasoline direct injection. The Santa Fe's mighty V6 is also paired with Hyundai's 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC, which features an overdrive lockup torque converter for enhanced high-speed fuel efficiency.

Performance Enhancers

Other features that boost performance in the Santa Fe include available Active Cornering All-wheel Drive, which provides added traction, cornering ability, and all-weather performance. This feature delivers engine torque to the back wheels of the Santa Fe and also applies brake force to the inside rear wheel when it is needed.

Drive Mode Select further comes standard in the Santa Fe, featuring three driving modes: Eco, Normal, and Sport. This feature adjusts steering and throttle response to accommodate the varying driving styles of individual motorists.

An available electronic parking brake, which isn't offered in the Pilot, the Highlander, or the Pathfinder, offers its own convenient enhancements to the Santa Fe's performance assets.

The switch to activate this feature is located on the Santa Fe's center console, in proximity to the shifter. When the electronic parking brake is set, it has the ability to disengage automatically when the driver presses down on the gas pedal, and an Automatic Vehicle Hold feature automatically activates the parking brake after the foot brake is depressed-the driver doesn't have to keep a foot on the pedal to maintain braking.

Hitching Up for the Long Haul

Whenever you need to haul along toys or a trailer for an adventurous outing, the Santa Fe is up to the challenge.

The Santa Fe flexes impressive towing muscle that enables 5,000 pounds of standard tow ability.

A trailer-prep package with a flush-mounted tow hitch design comes standard.

Fuel Efficiency

The Santa Fe delivers impressive fuel economy for a big-capability SUV, with EPA-estimated city mpg ranging between 17 and 18 mpg and highway mpg ranging between 22 and 25 mpg.

A large fuel tank with a standard 18.8-gallon capacity enables drivers to travel farther between fuel stops.
