What You Will Like

Starting at just under $25,000, the Santa Fe Sport competes with other small SUVs such as the Ford Escape and Toyota RAV4. Meanwhile, the long-wheelbase Santa Fe is more competitive with mid-sized SUVs such as the Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot and Nissan Pathfinder, and with its standard 290-horsepower V6, it offers more power than all of them. The Santa Fe Sport, on the other hand, features a standard 6-speed automatic, and at 71.5 cubic feet of rear cargo space, it bests competition such as the Toyota Venza and Ford Edge. With strong styling and a long list of available features, the Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport are appealing options.

Introduction

The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a five-passenger crossover SUV, smaller then the seven-passenger Santa Fe and powered by a choice of two engines. Attractive styling mixes with an abundance of standard features to make the Santa Fe Sport a contender against some of America’s best-selling vehicles, led by the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and Ford Escape.

Slotted between the recently redesigned Tucson at the compact end of the scale, and the larger three-row Santa Fe, the Santa Fe Sport gets our vote as the best of the three Hyundai models. Santa Fe Sport was launched as a 2013 model, along with the longer Santa Fe. Little has changed for the 2016 model year.

The 2016 Santa Fe Sport comes as one trim level, with a choice of two engines. A normally aspirated 2.4-liter four-cylinder makes 190 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder produces 264 horsepower and 259 pound-feet. The turbo delivers capable acceleration, with little loss in highway gas mileage.

Fuel economy for the standard 2.4-liter engine is EPA-rated at 20/27 mpg City/Highway, versus 19/27 mpg for the turbo. For drivers who relish performance even in a utility vehicle, the turbo offers an acceptable trade-off.

Each direct-injected engine mates with a well-behaved 6-speed automatic transmission. Front-drive and all-wheel drive layouts are available. All-wheel drive exacts a gas mileage penalty: 19/25 mpg City/Highway for the 2.4-liter, and 18/24 mpg for the turbo. An all-wheel-drive Honda CR-V, in contrast, is EPA-rated at 31 mpg Highway driving.

Crossovers need to emphasize space and utility, and the Santa Fe Sport complies. Space is ample for five passengers. The available sliding second-row bench can move 5.2 inches fore and aft, increasing either cargo or passenger space, as in a Chevrolet Equinox.

The front seats offer good support. The 40/20/40 split second-row seat reclines and folds, to carry longer objects.

Ride quality may be the Santa Fe Sport’s prime attribute. On the highway or around town, it’s nearly always calm and collected. Three-mode steering isn’t so helpful. We prefer Normal or Sport, because Comfort responds too slowly.

Powertrains are well-muted, and the driving experience is largely smooth and effortless. At times, the automatic transmission responds slowly when gear changes are called for.

Hyundai’s standard BlueLink telematics system incorporates Bluetooth streaming for apps, and turn-by-turn navigation, working in conjunction with a smartphone.

Crash-test scores from the federal government are good. The Santa Fe Sport earned a five-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Lineup

The 2016 Santa Fe Sport comes with a choice of two engines and front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Santa Fe Sport 2.4 ($24,950) comes with the 2.4-liter engine; air conditioning; tilt/telescoping steering column; steering-wheel audio/phone controls; and 17-inch wheels. Six-speaker audio includes a CD player, satellite radio, USB/auxiliary ports, and Bluetooth. Premium and Technology Packages add many items that are standard on the turbocharged 2.0T, including a panoramic sunroof, hands-free tailgate, and navigation.

Santa Fe Sport 2.0T ($31,250) gets the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine plus many additional features, including leather upholstery, power heated front seats, power tailgate, a sliding second-row bench, rearview camera, blind-spot and lane-change assist, cross-traffic alert, and 18-inch wheels. An Ultimate Package adds Infinity surround-sound audio, 19-inch wheels, heated rear seats.

All-wheel drive ($1,750) is available with either engine.

Safety features include the usual airbags plus a driver’s knee airbag. Rearview camera, blind-spot warning and lane-change assist, cross-traffic alert are optional.

Walkaround

The Santa Fe Sport is the best-looking member of Hyundai’s crossover-SUV trio. Exuding an attractive mainstream charm, the Santa Fe Sport possesses all the appropriate crossover-SUV cues, assembled in an appealing manner. Sharp edges and tight sheetmetal creases wrap around the amply-glassed body in a variety of ways. Up front, the grille presents a handsome hexagonal face, balanced by the headlights and foglamps.

Detail work includes side sills that stand out in relief, stretching up and over the rear wheel wells. Rear door handles sit well back from the wheel openings. Overall, the Sport’s shape has a modern look. Ground clearance is a middling 7.3 inches.

Interior

The cockpit has improved greatly since its last generation. Large air vents flank the controls, and big knobs operate audio volume and fan speed. Some textured plastic appears behind the steering wheel, lacking the richness of the rest of the dashboard.

With navigation installed, an eight-inch touchscreen glows beneath a matte surface. Electro-luminescent gauges are standard in turbo models. The infotainment system is capable and easy to operate.

With more interior space than a Ford Escape, the Santa Fe Sport offers good knee and leg room, adequate for tall drivers. Bottom cushions are well-bolstered, and backrests nicely shaped. In turbo models, the second-row seat reclines and slides forward/back on a track.

With rear seats raised, the Sport has 35.4 cubic feet of cargo; with seats down, the hold grows to 71.5 cubic feet. A cargo bin provides shallow, under-floor storage, only accessible when the cargo area is empty.

Cockpit isolation excels. Suspension noise has been muted, and drivetrains emit little more than a distant whir.

Driving Impressions

Ride comfort and acceleration from the optional turbocharged engine acceleration are the high points, but the steering is not as sharp as it might be.

The base 2.4-liter engine is less satisfying, lacking power for much beyond single-passenger commuter duty. For a significantly more pleasant driving experience, we recommend the 2.0T turbocharged engine. An Active ECO mode blurs throttle and shift responses, saving just a bit of gas.

A manual-shift mode for the transmission is actuated by the shift lever. Shift points and quality are well-chosen, and appropriate most of the time. Push hard on the gas pedal and, after a short pause, the transmission shifts down eagerly.

Electric power steering can be toggled through Comfort, Normal, and Sport modes. The Sport setting helps the vehicle track better on the highway. Comfort delivers a slow, light feel, for drivers who prefer a relaxed experience.

Optional all-wheel drive distributes power from the front wheels to the rear wheels when traction needs arise. It’s not meant for off-road traction, but simply for all-weather capability. All-wheel-drive models have Active Cornering Control.

Suspension design yields a calm, quiet ride. The Sport feels absorbent and largely controlled, even over mildly broken surfaces. On a rutted gravel path, the Santa Fe Sport manages to retain its easygoing attitude.

Summary

As always, Hyundai focuses on value. With a total base price near $26,000, the Santa Fe Sport is well-equipped to compete with better-known rivals. It costs more than a base Escape or CR-V, but when comparably equipped, the Santa Fe Sport is a strong value. Even though the 2.0T turbo model costs $6,300 more, its additional equipment is worth considering.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
