Having a mid-size platform, the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe is a spacious crossover SUV that comes with three rows of seats. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a compact crossover SUV that has two rows of seats. Both of these family-friendly models roll on the SHIFTRONIC automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Available with the Automatic Emergency Braking and more than five other accident-avoidance features, the Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport lead their classes in active safety.

Exterior Design

Regal Red, Storm Blue and Night Sky are some of the striking paint options that are available for the Hyundai Santa Fe. If you have a traditional sense of styling, choose from other rich colors, such as Iron Frost or Becketts Black. The palette menu for the Santa Fe Sport includes several flamboyant choices, like Canyon Copper, Serrano Red and Marlin Blue. Both of these crossover SUVs have chrome finishes on the door handles and exhaust pipes. A rear spoiler with an LED Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) is another installation that adds appeal and function. Both vehicles have efficient LED bulbs in the daytime running lights, tail lights and headlights. Additionally, the Automatic Headlight Control provides some assistance for nighttime driving. These family-friendly cars boast the Smart Liftgate that comes with a hands-free operation.


Using natural aspiration, the Santa Fe's V6 engine whips out up to 290 horsepower. In the Santa Fe Sport, the turbocharged 2.0 L engine generates up to 240 hp. This sporty model is also available with a naturally aspirated 2.4 L engine that's rated at 185 hp. Both crossover SUVs take advantage of gasoline direct injection (GDI) technology. Having six fixed gear speeds, the SHIFTRONIC automatic transmission system is standard in the Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport. Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are compatible with this trademark transmission system. A 50/50 torque distribution can be achieved when the AWD system is tested under demanding conditions. Both of these Hyundai models can run on the Drive Mode Select that expands the capabilities of the SHIFTRONIC system. When it comes to towing, the Santa Fe can handle up to 5,000 pounds, and the Santa Fe Sport could haul a maximum of 3,500 pounds.


Capable of issuing visible alerts in the side mirrors, the Blind Spot Detection is installed in the Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport. Additional feedback might be provided by the Lane Departure Warning and Lane Change Assist. Both of these crossover SUVs offer the Automatic Emergency Braking that has pedestrian-detecting capabilities. Forward crashes are also unlikely to happen when the Smart Cruise Control is turned on. A rear view camera and the Rear Cross Traffic Alert are some other accident-mitigation installations in these Hyundai vehicles. Set up in the rear bumper, ultrasonic sensors provide additional peace of mind for backing up. Additionally, the Dynamic Bending Light and High Beam Assist are optional in the Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport.
