2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Details
The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a midsized crossover SUV that takes after the Hyundai Santa Fe but with a few key differences. Instead of three rows of seats like its bigger sibling, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has two rows, seating a maximum of five passengers inside. It is also a smaller vehicle, which means it is more fuel efficient and maneuverable. But just because it’s small doesn’t mean that the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport lacks power or space. With the rear seats folded down, the vehicle has an impressive 71.5 cubic feet of cargo room, more than enough for most loads. It comes standard with a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that boasts of 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque, but drivers looking for more power can upgrade to a 2.0-liter in-line 4-cylinder Turbo Engine that puts out 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque by buying the Sport 2.0T or the Sport 2.0T Ultimate trims. Drivers in the Richmond, KY area that want extra handling on the road have the option of upgrading from front-wheel drive (FWD) to all-wheel drive (AWD). All three trims feature a six-speed automatic transmission.
