2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Overview

New/Notable

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a midsize SUV that seat up to 5 passengers.

Three trims are available: the base 2.4L model, 2.0L Turbo, and 2.0L Turbo Ultimate.

Exterior
Overall, the Santa Fe Sport has a sleek, chiseled front-end that includes a hollowed-out grille and an aggressive fascia. The optional LED daytime running lights and fog lights have also been restyled to match. Standard features include power/heated side mirrors, chrome door handles, and LED accent lights. Available features include HID headlights, turn-signals indicators at the side mirrors, front fog lights, LED daytime running lights, a power liftgate, a roof rack, and a panoramic moonroof.
 
Under the Hood
The Santa Fe Sport is powered by a standard 185-hp, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive. A 240-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder is available as well. This year, horsepower had been downgraded to marginally improve fuel economy and torque. Fuel economy for the base model is an EPA-estimated 21/27 mpg city/highway. It dips slightly to a 20/26 mpg for the base model with AWD. The turbocharged 2.0-liter model earned a 20/28 mpg rating and 19/24 rating with AWD.

It can be upgraded to include a 7- or 8-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, Apple CarPlay / Android Auto compatibility, and an Infinity premium audio system. The available Hyundai Blue Link Connected car system comes with safety, diagnostic, and remote access features. Other interior options include dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seating, wood-finish trim, a memory seat, power/heated/cooled seats, adaptive cruise control, and automatic dimming rearview mirror. A 40/20/40 split-folding rear bench seat and 12-volt power outlets come standard.
