2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport: Everything you want

There are no fewer than seven models to choose from when it comes to the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, with varying engines as well as a choice between FWD and AWD.

Hyundai tacked on a “Sport” to their previously known Santa Fe for the third generation that initially launched in 2013. Although the addition of the word “Sport” did nothing for the vehicle’s performance, it did differentiate it from the longer wheelbase version, the Santa Fe XL. In all, the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a dynamic CUV ideal for urban families across North America.

The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport offers up room for five passengers, as well as options such as leather or cloth seats, an optional 8” navigation system with a 10-speaker Infinity audio system, and even rear heated seats (something Hyundai’s become known for). Bluetooth and satellite radio are, of course, available as well. The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has an amenity for every need, and every budget. Of course, those in need of more interior seating space need only look to the Santa Fe XL.

The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is Customizable to Fit Your Needs

There are no fewer than seven models to choose from when it comes to the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, with varying engines as well as a choice between FWD and AWD.

The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, like the previous generation, has two engine choices on offer. Both are powerful and efficient. The non-turbocharged 2.4L GDI Theta II 4-cyl mill produces 190 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers are more than enough to get the Santa Fe Sport moving, and you can even have a bit of fun behind the wheel.

If you’ve always wanted a turbocharged daily driver, then look no further than the Santa Fe Sport equipped with the 2.0L Turbo-GDI Theta II 4-cylinder that pushes out 265 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The turbocharged unit is only available paired to an AWD Santa Fe Sport model. Regardless of engine choice, only one transmission is on offer to handle all the power: a 6-speed Electronic automatic with SHIFTRONIC manual mode.

A Great Deal for a Great Price

Of course, it comes down to what you get behind the wheel of your 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, because it really is a great deal for not a great deal of coin. The list of standard features in the Santa Fe’s base trim seem endless and contain such amenities as A/C, heated front seats, Bluetooth, 17” alloy wheels, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, and even trailer tow pre-wiring.

With just over 1,000 liters of interior space, the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe is the ideal family vehicle, and there’s an added bonus for those who have young kids: YES Essential Cloth. This specialized fabric is standard on all models with cloth seating, and provides Santa Fe Sport owners with anti-odor, anti-static, and stain-resistant properties. Parents rejoice!
