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.

Front wheel bushings have also been retuned for 2015, which also enhances §teering feel.

Revised rear suspension geometry and bushings increase lateral stiffness.

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.
