Overview

What's New in the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe?

The Santa Fe Sport is completely unchanged for 2016. See the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe models for sale near you

Which Santa Fe is the Best?

Despite its somewhat nonlinear acceleration, our pick would be the Sport 2.0T. The little turbo delivers big performance, and it comes with a lot of standard equipment to boot. Find a Hyundai Santa Fe Sport for sale

 

How Much Does a 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Cost?

The Santa Fe Sport is offered in base or 2.0T trim. Both offer 2-row seating with room for five passengers. Drivers who want three rows will have to step up to the larger Santa Fe (not the Sport), which is reviewed separately.

Feature highlights for the base Sport ($25,800) include a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlight and taillight accents, a rear spoiler, air conditioning, electronically adjustable steering effort, power accessories, a tilt-telescopic steering wheel, cruise control, a trip computer, Bluetooth and a 6-speaker audio system with satellite radio and iPod/USB connectivity.

The Sport 2.0T ($32,100) adds a high-powered 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, dual exhaust outlets, 18-in alloy wheels (19-in alloy wheels are also available), heated exterior mirrors, a blind spot monitoring system, automatic headlights, fog lights, keyless entry with push-button ignition, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an electroluminescent gauge cluster with a color LCD information screen, a 4.3-in touchscreen audio display with a rearview camera, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, leather upholstery, a sliding back seat, dual-zone automatic climate control and power heated front seats with driver lumbar.

The base Sport can be optionally equipped with many of the 2.0T model's standard features. Other notable options depending on trim include xenon headlights, LED taillights, a hands-free power lift gate, a panoramic sunroof, a navigation system with an 8-in touchscreen, ventilated front seats, heated back seats, a 10-speaker Dimension audio system (on the base Sport only) and a 12-speaker Infinity audio system (2.0T only).

On the hauling front, the Sport offers 35.4 cu ft. of cargo space behind the back seat and 71.5 cu ft. with the rear seatbacks folded. That's a lot of cubes at this price point. Meanwhile, a properly equipped Hyundai Santa Fe Sport can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Competition

2016 Hyundai Santa Fe vs the competition

2016 Ford Edge -- The Edge plays in the same "in between compact and midsize" realm as the Santa Fe Sport. The Edge offers more power, but the Hyundai is a little cheaper.

2016 Kia Sorento -- Distantly related to the Santa Fe, the Sorento lets you have V6 power in a 2-row package and 4-cylinder power in a 3-row package -- two combinations that the Santa Fe Sport can't match.

2016 Nissan Murano -- If you're looking for a Santa Fe Sport with bolder styling, consider Nissan's unusual (but endearing) Murano. The Murano also offers a lot of technology and muscular powertrains.

Used BMW X3 -- If you shop around, you can find a certified pre-owned X3 in the Santa Fe Sport's price range. It's a lot of crossover for the money -- and it's very exciting to drive.
