Test Drive 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe by Detroit MI

 

Vehicle Overview

The Hyundai Santa Fe bears the distinction of being the first SUV ever released by Hyundai. And over the years, it has become one of the most popular compact crossovers in the market due to its ability to blend off-road capability, remarkable gas mileage, and ample interior space. The 2017 model year marks the Santa Fe's midpoint in its third production cycle, and as such, it received a major refresh. Now, select trims have the availability of certain high-level driver assistance and electronic safety features. And if you have an Android smartphone, you can execute infotainment functions thanks to Android Auto. The 2017 Santa Fe has four trims: SE, Limited, SE Ultimate, and Limited Ultimate trims.

InteriorThe 2017 Santa Fe is designed and classified as a midsize crossover SUV with three rows. However, the number of people that the rows can accommodate differ depending on trim. With the SE trim level (i.e., SE and SE Ultimate), the second row consists of two captain's chairs, thus capping off the maximum occupancy at six people; the bench-style third row is only big enough to accommodate two occupants. With the Limited trim level (i.e., Limited and Limited Ultimate), the second row has a bench-style seat that's big enough to seat three people, thus making the overall maximum occupancy seven. The Santa Fe cabin provides 146.6 cubic feet of passenger space, and the trunk yields 80 cubic feet of cargo space, which can be expanded into the cabin if you fold down the seats behind the first row, which includes an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with 4-way power lumbar support. On the Limited, the front passenger seat gets 4-way power adjustability, both front seats can be heated, and all seats get leather covering. On the SE Ultimate and Limited Ultimate, Hyundai adds front-seat cooling capability, second-row heating capability, and an integrated memory system on the driver's seat. Other standard comfort and convenience features on the 2017 Santa Fe include Hyundai's Blue Link telematics system for car care services like emergency assistance and service scheduling, air-purifying dual-zone front automatic climate control, Bluetooth technology for hands-free phone operation, HD Radio, a three-month SiriusXM satellite radio subscription, steering wheel-mounted controls, and a six-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 system with a 7-inch audio display screen. On the Limited, Hyundai adds proximity key entry with push-button engine start, as well as an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a remote garage door opener. On the Ultimate trim level, Hyundai adds steering wheel heating capability, a panoramic sunroof, and an 8-inch touchscreen navigation system; and the automaker replaces the six-speaker stereo with a 12-speaker Infinity surround sound system.

The projector headlights of the 2017 Santa Fe are accented with LED dots that automatically turn on in the daytime to increase the SUV's conspicuity. On the top of the Santa Fe are roof rack side rails for additional luggage carrying capability, and power heated side mirrors flank the front doors. At the back are a rear spoiler for enhanced aerodynamic performance and a chrome-tipped dual exhaust system for increased engine efficiency. The Limited also comes with fog lights at the front, turn-signal indicators on the exterior mirrors, and a hands-free smart liftgate for the trunk. If you go with the Limited or Limited Ultimate, the halogen bulbs of the headlights are replaced with longer-lasting LED ones. The SE and Limited ride on 18-inch alloy wheels, while the SE Ultimate and Limited Ultimate ride on larger, 19-inch alloy ones.

Mechanical / Powertrain - Santa Fe Information
Powertrain

The 2017 Santa Fe is powered by the Lambda II, which is a 3.3-liter V6 engine that generates 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. It is hitched to a 6-speed automatic transmission, which comes with SHIFTRONIC mode to shift gears on demand, like a manual gearbox. The transmission also comes with an Active ECO system that shuts down certain automobile functions to boost fuel economy. Front-wheel drive is the standard drivetrain on the Santa Fe, with the option of going with an all-wheel drivetrain for enhanced traction. Depending on configuration, the SUV can tow up to 5,000 lbs. The ride is cushioned and virtually free from turbulence, thanks to the MacPherson strut and rear multi-link independent suspension. And its motor-driven power steering ensures sharp and precise cornering, as well as an independent source of power (drawing from an electric motor rather than the engine itself).
