Determine Your Performance

Two separate engine setups in the Santa Fe give you varying degrees of power. The 2.5L Smartstream GDI/MPI 4-cylinder engine produces 191 horsepower with 181 lb-ft of torque. Move up to the available 2.5L Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, and it produces 281 horsepower with 311 lb-ft of torque.

An eight-speed automatic transmission appears in the first two trims while the Limited trim uses the 8-speed wet Dual Clutch Transmission with SHIFTRONIC®. With the Drive Mode Select, use Normal, Sport, and Smart modes to adjust your SUV’s response to the conditions you face. Front-wheel drive comes standard in all models, but you can exchange it for the optional HTRAC All Wheel Drive.

Picking out the drivetrain and engine you want determines what type of gas mileage you can reach. Sticking with FWD and the standard engine lets you reach an EPA-estimated 25 city/28 highway MPG.1 Switch to AWD with the same engine, and you reach an EPA-estimated 22 city/25 highway MPG.1

With the available Turbo engine and FWD combination, you can reach an EPA-estimated 22 city/28 highway MPG.1 If you change to the AWD, the Santa Fe reaches an EPA-estimated 21 city/28 highway MPG.1 Think about what feels right for you when deciding on your desired performance.

Towing Capacity and Towing Systems in Manchester CT

So, the towing capacity drove you to think about the Santa Fe. Thankfully, there are three different weights it can pull to cater to your specific needs. Without trailer brakes, it can tow up to 1,650 pounds. If you add trailer brakes, your SUV can tow 2,000 pounds in the two introductory trims and a maximum of 3,500 pounds in the highest trim.

Towing-specific equipment includes the 4-pin trailer wire connection and Trailer Sway Control. This keeps your trailer steady even in windy or stormy weather.

Other systems like Electronic Stability Control, the Traction Control System, and Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) work in tandem to keep you locked and loaded with a good grip on the road.

Driver-Assist and Safety Systems

While you’re towing your boat for a weekend jaunt, you’ll also receive protection from multiple safety and driver-assist systems. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with Pedestrian, Cyclist, and Junction Turning Detection warns you about any possible upcoming crashes and pedestrians.

To help you stay in your lane, the Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Following Assist systems keep tabs on your lane position. If you start to drift or become distracted at the wheel, the Driver Attention Warning will suggest you take a break.

In hard-to-see areas, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) offer you visibility and mild braking action if necessary. For more clearance, survey the area around you with the available Surround View Monitor and Blind-Spot View Monitor.
