• Innovative Power Hands-Free Smart Liftgate wîth Auto Open Now Available on Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport
FOÚNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 22, 2014
– The award-winning Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport offer more standard comfort and convenience equipment for 2015, including refinements to the §teering and suspension systems. The 2015 Santa Fe Sport starts at only $24,950, excluding $875 freight charge, and is arriving in dealerships now.
The electric power §teering system in the 2015 Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport now uses a 32-bit microprocessor that delivers a refined §teering feel. The revised §teering system retains Hyundai's Driver Selectable Steering Mode, which features a retuned 'Sport' setting that takes advantage of the updated microprocessor and offers firmer §teering. Front wheel bushings have also been retuned for 2015, which also enhances §teering feel.
Already known for delivering world-class ride and handling, suspension enhancements for the 2015 Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport increase wheel bearing stiffness and lower control arm bushing stiffness, which increases the overall lateral stiffness of the front suspension. Revised rear suspension geometry and bushings increase lateral stiffness.
Hyundai Santa Fe continues to offer front- or all-wheel drive and seating options for five, six or seven passengers. The 2015 Santa Fe Sport is powered by an efficient 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine or the powerful, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. 2015 Santa Fe uses the acclaimed 3.3-liter Lambda II V-6. All Santa Fe engines use gasoline direct injection and Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT). A six-speed automatic transmission is standard on all Santa Fe models.
