Meet the New 2017 Santa Fe SUV at Penticton Hyundai
Santa Fe Performance, Towing Specifications and Gas Mileage
What’s better than one great engine? The choice between two terrific engines without any trade-offs! The Santa Fe 5-passenger Sport model features a choice of two engines including a standard 2.4L engine with Dual Continuously Variable Valve timing that puts out 185 hp at 6,300 rpm and 178 lb-ft of torque at 4,250 rpm. The turbocharged and intercooled 2.0L T-GDI engine puts out 240 hp at 6,000rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque between 1750 and 3000rpm.
The larger Santa Fe XL utilizes a DOHC 3.3L GDI V6 engine with 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. The maximum towing capacity for the V6 stands at 2,268kg, while the turbo sport model provides 1,590 kg, and the GDI stands at 907 kg. The GDI engine paired with a front-wheel-drive drivetrain has the best gas mileage at 6.7L/100km on the highway (approx. 42 miles per gallon), while the 2.0T provides a healthy 7.4L/100km (approx. 38 mpg) on the highway. No matter which way you size things up, there’s plenty to get excited about with this year’s Santa Fe.
Santa Fe Exterior & Handling
The third generation Santa Fe crossover features Hyundai’s new “Fluid Sculpture” design aesthetic, giving it a modern and sleek look representative of the technological advancements aboard the brand new model. Hyundai broke away from the typical styling of the crossover segment and went with a fluid appearance that gives the illusion of constant motion, while more aggressive lines distinguish the 2017 model from predecessors. Available colours for 2017 include Marlin Blue, Moonstone Silver, Serrano Red, Twilight Black, Titanium Silver, Cabo Bronze, Juniper Green and Frost White Pearl.
Enhanced cornering performance and ride comfort are provided by the compact MacPherson strut front suspension and fully independent multi-link rear suspension. Standard 17-inch alloy wheels and P235/65R17 tires help you grip the road while 2.0T models add sporty 19-inch alloy wheels and low-profile P235/55R19 tires into the mix.
Santa Fe Safety Features
The Santa Fe’s Selectable Steering Mode (DSSM) system allows you to fine-tune your feedback to the road and includes three operating modes: Comfort, Normal and Sport. This allows you to adapt while driving under varying road conditions. The available electronic AWD system gives you improved all-weather performance and improves your safety under a variety of driving conditions. The AWD system works with Active Corning Control (ACC), part of the Vehicle Stability Management system to help manage your acceleration during a turn and prevent you from losing grip. Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-Lock Brakes, and Brake Assist are standard features on the 2017 Santa Fe Sport and XL.
Santa Fe Interior & Cargo Space Dimensions
The Santa Fe Sport comes with an array of standard and optional features giving it superior value to the competitors. Available luxury features include a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, rear heated seats, front heated and cooled seating, leather interior, panoramic sunroof and more. Modern technologies aboard the Santa Fe include a rear-view camera to make parking easier, proximity keyless entry and push button ignition, approach lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control and more. The standard AM/FM/Satellite Radio/CD/MP3 audio system features a larger 5-inch colour LCD screen, while an advanced voice-activated navigation system is available.
The Santa Fe Sport offers spacious interior cargo space dimensions with 35.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats folded up and occupied, while the XL model will provide a total of 71.5 cubic feet of storage space when the additional third row is folded. The 2017 Santa Fe Sport also features roof rails to further expand cargo storage capabilities and give you more options on the road with the family.
