The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is one of the most rewarding small crossovers on the market. Top Safety Pick credentials and a spacious interior design make it a highly recommended family vehicle. Sharp exterior styling gives drivers yet another reason to fall in love with the Santa Fe Sport. Premium features, such as a 12-speaker Infinity sound system and leather upholstery, come standard on the luxurious 2.0T Ultimate trim. While the 2017 model was impressive, the 2018 version packs even more excitement. Let’s see how the new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport compares to the outgoing 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.


For the 2018 model year, the Santa Fe Sport offers the same impressive engine lineup as before. Most drivers will be more than content with the base four-cylinder engine. It churns out a healthy 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. A smooth-shifting automatic transmission enables you to take full advantage of the engine’s power. Responsive handling gives drivers complete confidence on the road. If you desire even more grunt under the hood, check out the exhilarating turbocharged engine. Hyundai tuned it to develop an addictive 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. A 0-60 time of 7.3 seconds puts the 2.0T model among the quickest crossovers in the segment. In terms overall performance capabilities, you won’t notice a difference between the 2018 Santa Fe Sport and the 2017 Santa Fe Sport.

Interior and Features

Don’t underestimate the compact Santa Fe Sport’s ability to comfortably transport families. According to Edmunds, the crossover provides an excellent amount of knee room for your backseat passengers. You will also appreciate the Santa Fe Sport’s ergonomic cabin. Easy-to-use controls help minimize the number of driving distractions. Some of the notable standard features include a backup camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and a six-speaker sound system. Among the biggest changes for 2018 is the arrival of a new Value package. It is designed to give car shoppers more for their money. Not only does this optional package provide smartphone integration, but it also includes upgrades like heated front seats and remote start.


Boasting a five-star safety rating, you can count on the Santa Fe Sport to provide the necessary protection for your family. An available Hyundai Blue Link feature gives you an around-the-clock connection to emergency personnel. Like the 2017 model, the 2018 Santa Fe Sport offers a plethora of advanced driving aids. When traveling on a dark night, the optional adaptive headlights will dramatically enhance your ability to spot obstacles. Meanwhile, forward collision warning constantly scans the road for potential danger. Automatic braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot detection, and adaptive cruise control are offered as well.

Both the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport bring a lot of great qualities to the table. To experience how they compare, stop by Pohanka Hyundai to take a test drive.
