2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport What's new for 2016? 
2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

For 2016, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport crossover SUV carries over unchanged from the 2015 model, with one exception. The Saddle Brown interior is no longer available.

The 2015 Santa Fe Sport gets a mildly revised grille, but more important are changes to the suspension and steering aimed at improving drivability. Also new is the cool new power hatch, which opens if you stand next to it for a few seconds with the key in your pocket.

The 2014 version of the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has relatively few changes. There is an available Blind Spot Detection and rear parking-assist system; the Sport 2.0T is available with HID headlights, LED taillights, rear-window sunshades and standard 18-inch wheels. There also are new premium convenience features.

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport What's new for 2013? 
2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

The complete recasting of this compact SUV brings a bolder appearance, impressively enhanced features and a serious dash of performance coupled with a gain in fuel economy to the Santa Fe Sport side of the family. The mid-size 2013 Santa Fe (reviewed separately) replaces the existing Veracruz in the Hyundai lineup.

About Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

Although it's designed to challenge compact crossover SUVs like the Honda CR-V and Chevrolet Equinox, many owners consider Hyundai's Santa Fe Sport for 2016 to play in a more prestigious league. Features such as a panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats and a nifty power liftgate that automatically opens upon approach set the Santa Fe apart from lesser competitors, but its sub $30,000 starting price is also further up the price ladder than an entry-level Nissan Rogue, Toyota RAV4 or Subaru Forester. The 5-passenger Santa Fe Sport offers plenty of room for passengers and cargo and even the option of all-wheel drive (AWD), but the base 4-cylinder engine isn't very powerful or fuel efficient, and even the turbo doesn't light the tires on fire.

"We went from Suburbans to a Tahoe to a Sante Fe. We have several friends with Santa Fes and they praised them. So for gas milage mainly we traded and bought a 2013 Sante Fe in 2012. We have had it a year and a half and still really like it. My husband is a big guy and says he has plenty of leg and head room. It goes in the snow just fine. Our next suv may well be another Sante Fe. We like the fact that alot of the upgrades on other vehicles are standard on this one."

"New, 2016 Santa Fe Sport, base model. Love the car and the ride. Very smooth and quiet. Economy mode does work and saves on gas, however, there is noticeable shifting on highways. So we take off the Eco mode for lengthy trips and the smooth power is there whenever needed. Hyundai made great use of the cargo space. Other cars in this class have wheel wells that come in and take up space. Not so here. Also, there are hidden compartments under the cargo floor which comes in handy for all kinds of usage! Blind spot mirror on driver's side is a good addition. Only complaint is the lack of a back up camera/monitor. We were led to believe it was included, it was not. Most cars have back up monitors as standard these days, this is an inexcusable omission on a 2016 vehicle. Otherwise, this is a perfect crossover vehicle."

"We are a Hyundai family. This is the 7th Hyundai our family has owned in the last 6 years and have loved every one of them! 3 Tibourons,1 Sonata, 1 Elantra and 2 Santa Fe's. They have come a long way from when I considered them low priced throw away cars. The only consistant problem and mind you it is just this one is the battery life on 3 of the cars was only 2 years and they made good on all three."
