The new Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is second-to-none in the crossover market. Sure, it's the smaller sibling to our standout SUV, the Hyundai Santa Fe, but don't for a second think its size is in any way an indication of its potency. Make that mistake and you'd be missing out on one truly first-rate utility hauler.
The new Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is undeniably a fan favorite of folks throughout the larger White Bear Lake, Roseville, Minneapolis, MN area. In fact, the reasons for the Santa Fe's popularity are plenty. Read on to learn what makes this compact crossover such a big-time hit at our St. Paul Hyundai dealership.
Per usual, it all starts with what's under the hood. Lift up the base model's snout and you'll discover a 2.4-liter four-cylinder dwelling inside. Rated at a very respectable 185 horsepower, this crossover packs some surprising punch. And better yet, you may swap the Santa Fe Sport's standard front-wheel-drive system for all-wheel-a move that will make it a true, year-round vehicle. If you're a performance-enthusiast you may consider opting for the bigger, brawnier 2.0T engine option. Propelled by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, this iteration produces plentiful horsepower and torque. Seriously spunky, this engine accounts for the "Sport" in this auto's moniker.
There are three trim level options-Sport, Sport 2.0T and the Sport 2.0 Ultimate-all of which are paired with their own, unique assortment of amenities. The base is certainly worth serious consideration, as its standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, LED headlamp accents, heated side mirrors, a trip computer and Bluetooth compatibility.
Go with the range-topping Sport 2.0T and you're looking at incredible creature comforts like leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, dual zone-automatic climate control and a 4.3-inch touchscreen display. Alternatively, you can settle into the top-of-the-line Sport 2.0T Ultimate to enjoy features like a standard panoramic sunroof, eight-inch touchscreen navigation system with Android Auto, heated rear seats, and much more.
When it comes to safety, the Santa Fe Sport makes your safety its highest priority. With features like Automatic Emergency Braking and Dynamic Bending Lights, the Santa Fe Sport goes above and beyond to deliver peace of mind. In fact, when equipped with these optional, standout features, the new Santa Fe Sport is considered a 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick+-making it a desirable choice among families, commuters and drivers alike.
As you can see, there are a variety of reasons why the Hyundai Santa Fe is a great choice for drivers in the greater St. Paul and Minneapolis region. Of course, we're not the only ones that think so. The new Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a recipient of the 2017 Consumer Guide® Automotive Best Buy Award, which recognizes vehicles that distinguish themselves with high customer appeal and value.
