About Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

Although the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport SUV remains an attractive proposition, its aging design has prompted Hyundai to rely on a proven sales tactic: add more features for less money. Even with these upgrades, however, the 2018 Santa Fe Sport compact-crossover SUV must still compete with the Honda CR-V, VW Tiguan and Chevrolet Equinox, all offering newer designs, better tech and, in the case of the Mazda CX-5, a diesel-engine option. Fuel economy is also an area where the 2018 Santa Fe Sport is falling behind the pack. To its credit, the Santa Fe Sport offers one of the most powerful engines in the segment, loads of standard equipment plus such high-end options as ventilated front seats, Infinity audio and a panoramic moonroof.

"Ive owned the x5. the Volvo and infinity. The santa fe super cedes all of the other suvs Ive owned, and its less money. I have over 210,000 miles on it and only changed the oil, brakes and tires. I was nervous at first because I never owned one. So it made sense to give it a shot when Hyundai was introduced as a high line competitor."

"My wife and I had wanted a hyundai tuscon, which is more sporty looking than the sante fe but the sante fe was a little less expensive with the rebate offered. The car is the base model sport with the popular option package. The stereo is awesome! The engine is very quiet and less than powerful but will propel the car at 85 mph (the posted limit in south Texas) just fine getting about 27 mpg. It does have a tendency to downshift a lot when you get on it but it is so quiet that the tach in the only way to tell. The little car is very comfortable. We just completed a 900 mile trip and no complaints at all. It is very comfortable for four people, five if the three in the rear are skinny or children. Visiblity is good and the a/c will freeze you to death. I can definately recommend the little sante fe to anyone in the market for a more than small, less than big SUV"

"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."
