Hyundai Santa Fe Engine Specs

Hyundai Santa Fe Engine Performance

If you’re looking for performance, the Hyundai Santa Fe is ready to shine. Both the SE and SEL trims are equipped with a 2.5L inline 4-cylinder engine that generates up to 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. The Limited and Calligraphy trims are fully equipped with a 2.5L inline 4-cylinder turbo engine that produces up to 281 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque.

Need to tow a small trailer or other light cargo? The Santa Fe can tow up to a maximum of 3,500 pounds with trailer brakes and 1,650 pounds without trailer brakes. The vehicle also comes loaded with standard Trailer Sway Control, which can help put your trailer into place if it starts to move around erratically while you’re driving.  

Hyundai Santa Fe Interior

Interior Dimensions & Cargo Space

You know what it’s like to deal with a vehicle with little headroom and legroom, as well as little cargo room. It can be a hassle. However, with the Hyundai Santa Fe at your side, things like fussy passengers or having to make a second trip for luggage or other cargo will be left in the past. In the front of the Santa Fe, you’ll get 41.2 inches of headroom and 44.1 inches of legroom.

In the second row, your passengers will have 39 inches of headroom and 41.7 inches of legroom. In terms of cargo room, you’ll see 72.1 cubic feet behind the first row and 36.4 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the second row.

Across all Santa Fe trims, you’ll have the luxury of an 18.8-gallon tank, which can have you driving at least a couple hundred miles before you’ll need to fill up again.
