    The Hyundai Santa Fe lineup heads into 2016 essentially unchanged while featuring simplified interior offerings. The 2016 Santa Fe Sport starts at $24,950, which is unchanged from the previous model year and is arriving in dealerships now. The 3-row Santa Fe begins at $30,400 and will land in dealers in June. Both prices exclude an $895 freight charge.

    The Santa Fe continues to offer FWD or AWD and seating options for five, six or seven passengers. The 2016 Santa Fe Sport is powered by either the 2.4L or turbocharged 2.0L I4. The larger Santa Fe uses powered by the 3.3L V6. All Santa Fe engines use gasoline direct injection and Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT). A six-speed AT is standard on all Santa Fe models.

    Standard features on all Santa Fe's include remote keyless entry with alarm, body color heated exterior power mirrors with driver’s blind spot mirror, LED headlight accents, steering wheel mounted audio and cruise control and Bluetooth hands-free phone system.

    Premium features in higher trims and options packages include HID headlamps, panoramic sunroof, navigation, 12-speaker Infinity surround sound audio system, Hands-Free Smart Liftgate with Auto Open. The driver simply stands behind the tailgate with the key fob in a purse or pocket.

    2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Trim Renaming

    The 7-passenger GLS has been renamed SE for 2016 and the saddle interior option is no longer available on the Santa Fe Sport or Santa Fe. Java Espresso replaces Frosted Mocha on the exterior paint color palette on the 3-row Santa Fe.

    Like the 2015, standard safety equipment on the 2016 Santa Fe lineup includes Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control System, seven airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag, four-wheel disc brakes and ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist, Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) with Downhill Brake Control (DBC) and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

    Hi All:

    The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport was introduced in the 2013 model year, with two rows of seats and distinct from the slightly longer and heavier Santa Fe, which has three rows of seats.

    Beginning with 2017 models, extensive structural reinforcement of the occupant compartment was made to improve occupant protection in small overlap and moderate overlap frontal crashes. Small overlap ratings apply only to the Santa Fe Sport models.

    Santa Fe Sport Safety Features

    Standard safety equipment on the 2017 Santa Fe lineup includes:
    • Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) with Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
    • Traction Control System
    • Seven airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag
    • Four-wheel disc brakes and ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)
    • Brake Assist
    • Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) with Downhill Brake Control (DBC)
    • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

    AEB uses both the forward-facing radar and camera, through sensor fusion, to detect a vehicle or pedestrian, and warns the driver of a potential collision. If the driver does not react to avoid the impact, the system will apply emergency braking.

    Another perfect across the board score.​

    IIHS Small Overlap Crash Test Structure Detail

    The driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 8 cm at the footrest. Maximum upper interior intrusion measured 4 cm at the upper hinge pillar and instrument panel.

    IIHS Small Overlap Crash Test Injury Measures Detail

    Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

    IIHS Small Overlap Crash Test Restraints and Dummy Kinematics Detail

    The dummy’s movement was well controlled. The dummy’s head loaded the frontal airbag, which stayed in front of the dummy until rebound. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.

    By comparison, look at the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe NHTSA and IIHS Crash Test ratings.

    HI Airbalancer:

    It has been years since I was last in one but I can tell you the Sonata Hybrids seats are the best seats I have ever sat in.
