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.

"I bought my Santa Fe Sport about two and a half months ago after doing a lot of research of other SUV's and I am very happy with my choice. I wanted a fully loaded Sport with the turbo engine in seranno red which was very hard to find, I purchased it from Sansone's Auto Mall located in New Jersey but they had to get the vehicle from another dealership located in Danbury CT and I am so glad that I held out for a red one, the Sport looks beautiful in this color and I am always getting complements on my new Santa Fe no matter where I go, especially the color. The fit and finish on the Sport is excellent and I think that the interior as well as the exterior are just beautiful, very upscale. What I really didn't expect was how much fun this SUV is to drive, the 2.0 turbo is just as quick as any 6 cylinder in this class only with better gas millage, I am averaging about 23 mpg in combined driving, on the highway I have gotten over 27 mpg and in the city about 20 mpg, I am very pleased with both and I think that it will only get better over time and when the AC is not on all the time. I think that anyone looking for a midsize SUV owes it to themselves to check out the Santa Fe Sport, not only do you get a lot for your money but this vehicle looks beautiful and is a blast to drive and I'm no kid and this is the first SUV I have ever owned, I just thought it was time for a change after owning cars all my life. Now if it proves to be as reliable as my 2006 Azera that I traded in I will be one very happy camper."

"Completely satisfied with the 2.0 2013 Santa Fe Sport we purchased in October of 2012. Murano Red and all options. With the huge difference in amenities and technology between the base model and the loaded version, by all means try to stretch and get the option packages. Not one problem. Vehicle runs and looks great. Averaging about 27 mpg (urban and light suburban highways). TWEAKS: 1. I turn off the traction control as I find the vehicle drives better when accelerating quickly and the steering seems more sensitive to my touch.2.I use the Sport suspension option(there are three on this vehicle) for the best ride. My wife and I could not be more pleased with the quality build, the vehicle amenities (we are still discovering some neat features), the support via quality inquiry surveys from Hyundai and our dealership and the comments from our friends when they experience the ride and comfort."
