Interior

One size never fits all

The all-new Santa Fe will be offered in two wheelbase versions. The sporty 5-passenger Santa Fe Sport arrives first. In the near future, we’ll introduce an extended-wheelbase Santa Fe that features seating for 7.

Available 2nd row heated seats

The Santa Fe Sport interior is a premium venue on a mission to pamper. Second-row passengers get the unmistakable feeling of luxury from the available heated rear seats that also feature reclining rear seatbacks. In addition, leather seating surfaces are available for both front and rear seats.

Select tech features

Hyundai’s innovative Blue Link® telematics system is a standard option and offers remote start capability. The available 4-inch TFT-LCD supervision cluster plus our most advanced audio and navigation systems are available for the latest entertainment and information options.

Ample storage space

From its brilliantly convenient dashboard bin and under floor storage space to its many easily accessible bottle and cupholders—everywhere you look, thoughtful storage is right at hand.

Performance

Overachieving four—the 2.4L GDI

Standard on the Santa Fe Sport, this 2.4L 4-cylinder engine is a high-tech tour de force. Its Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) allows each engine intake and exhaust valve to be controlled independently, minimizing emissions and offering substantial gains in power. Paired with Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI), they create optimal air intake and enhance efficiency, power and torque.

Boost is better—the available 2.0L GDI Turbo

This 2.0L GDI 4-cylinder engine features a twin-scroll turbo that pumps out plenty of horsepower and torque on demand while delivering impressive fuel economy. Its highly advanced design helps improve combustion efficiency, and provide low-engine-speed efficiency.

V6 Power—seats for up to 7

Feeling right at home as the standard engine in the extended-wheelbase 6 or 7-passenger Santa Fe, the 3.3L V6 provides potent response. It creates an effortless flow of power and surprising fuel efficiency using advancements that include GDI and D-CVVT. The V6 is perfect for towing a small boat or weekend toys.

Smooth shifting 6-speed

Every Santa Fe engine is mated to Hyundai’s 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®. Plus all models have the Active ECO System that modifies engine and transmission performance to smooth out throttle response and increase real-world fuel economy.

Driver Selectable Steering Mode

Drivers will enjoy a greater sense of control and satisfaction courtesy of Hyundai’s latest innovation, Driver Selectable Steering Mode. Its three operating modes- Comfort, Normal and Sport adapt the Santa Fe’s steering characteristics to a range of driving preferences and road conditions.

Safety

Seven airbags

Santa Fe Sport provides a full complement of seven airbags, which includes a driver’s knee airbag that helps prevent the driver from submarining under the dash in an accident. This added level of safety is one that is usually found on more expensive premium vehicles.

Electronic Stability Control

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) sensors measure the difference between a driver’s intended path—when a turn is less or more than intended—and applies appropriate braking force to individual wheels to help regain control. ESC also includes a Traction Control System (TCS), which reduces wheelspin when accelerating.

Traction Control System

By reducing wheelspin in various adverse traction conditions, including inclement weather, Traction Control System (TCS) gives more stable and predictable acceleration characteristics for a more confident, controlled driving experience.

Anti-lock Braking System

Emergency braking maneuvers can cause a vehicle’s wheels to lock up and skid, resulting in a loss of steering control exactly when you need it most. ABS helps prevent the possibility of wheel lockup under hard braking, and rapidly pulses the brakes to help you retain steering control as you come to a stop.

Sophisticated All Wheel Drive

The available Intelligent Active All Wheel Drive (AWD) and Active Cornering Control AWD give drivers of the AWD Santa Fe improved stability in corners, plus help preventing overheating while trailer towing and during hill climbs.

Hillstart Assist Control

This forward-looking standard feature is designed to minimize backward rolling when starting from a stop on steep hills. It’s a thoughtful solution that provides added safety and confidence to a tricky driving situation.

Safety

Six airbags and more
Even our take on safety is extreme. Six airbags with a Front Occupant Classification System, high tensile strength steel and a sophisticated Vehicle Stability Management system are all standard on Veloster.

 

 
VEHICLE STABILITY MANAGEMENT (VSM)
Veloster’s Vehicle Stability Management system links Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS) to provide stability on road surfaces that offer reduced traction due to irregular pavement or bad weather. VSM can provide improved brake performance, boost acceleration or even increase steering force assistance to help you control the vehicle.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC)
One of three elements in Veloster’s Vehicle Stability Management system, Electronic Stability Control uses sensors in the steering system and at each wheel to compare where you want to go with where the car is heading. If a difference between the two is detected, Electronic Stability Control slows the appropriate wheel to redirect the car and help keep you on course.

TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM (TCS)
Working in tandem with ESC, TCS limits power and applies brakes to individual wheels to reduce the occurrence of wheelspin, and routes power to the wheel with the most traction.

ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS)
Emergency braking maneuvers can cause wheels to lock up and skid, resulting in a loss of steering control exactly when you need it most. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps prevent the possibility of wheel lockup under hard braking, and rapidly pulses the brakes to help you retain steering control as you come to a stop.

ELECTRONIC BRAKE-FORCE DISTRIBUTION (EBD)
Helping the driver maintain confident control in difficult braking situations, Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) balances braking forces at each wheel of the vehicle depending on the weight of the passengers and cargo that the vehicle is carrying.

BRAKE ASSIST
Brake Assist helps detect emergency braking situations and ensures the maximum braking force is immediately applied to minimize stopping distances.

 

 
Performance

1.6L GASOLINE DIRECT INJECTION (GDI) ENGINE
You’ll be amazed by Veloster’s 1.6L GDI engine. It’s both strong and efficient, generating 138 horsepower and delivering 40 MPG Hwy. That’s better highway fuel economy than the Honda CR-Z hybrid.

6-SPEED ECOSHIFT™ DUAL CLUTCH TRANSMISSION WITH PADDLE SHIFTERS
Typically found on high-end cars, the Veloster’s sophisticated 6-speed EcoShift™ Dual Clutch Transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters incorporates the latest technology while delivering smooth and efficient power.

 
ACTIVE ECO SYSTEM
Engineers for the environment. Extensive computer modeling and powertrain performance mapping was used to modify engine and transmission control, giving you improved real-world fuel economy—up to 7% based on internal tests.

SPORT-TUNED SUSPENSION
A modified front suspension featuring gas-charged hydraulic shock absorbers delivers a sportier ride while the Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS) has been tuned for increased steering response. Large front and rear stabilizer bars reduce body roll and improve handling and control on the curves.
