Hyundai SantaFe Sport 2.0T Is A Fabulous SUV For The Family

Hyundai SantaFe Sport 2.0T
Hyundai is true to their motto of "New Thinking. New Possibilities". My family and I feel the Hyundai SantaFe Sport 2.0T is an outstanding, well-engineered, stylish SUV that shows modern luxury. We really like the stunning look from the outside. Everyone getting into the vehicle will like the comfortable, luxurious and spacious drive. This SUV is perfect to drive in all types of weather and road conditions in Canada. 
The inside of the Hyundai SantaFe Sport has a surprising amount of features that are sure to be loved by the driver and passengers. 

It is a fabulous vehicle to take on road trips. We enjoyed the comfortable, smooth drive on the SUV. We took it on a long drive from Toronto to Muskoka, where we went camping.

We enjoyed the keyless driving that Hyundai SantaFe Sport offers because we don't have to take the keys out of our pocket or bag to drive. It is so much easier when we are in a hurry or at night.

The 8" touch screen navigation system with voice command was very useful for us. While on our road trip we made a few detours and used the POI feature to find places for gas, grocery and parking. We didn't have to setup and plug in our GPS. The voice recognition makes it so much easier to navigate hands-free. I like that we can easily access the screen to make phone calls and listen to music. There is also a slot to easily update the map when new versions are available.

The rearview camera comes on to the touch screen when the gear is set to reverse, which helps us safely and easily reverse and park. We can plug in our USB, iPod and AUX external devices. I like that it has two separate power outlets for charging devices.

We liked having the compass that displays on the rearview mirror, which indicates our direction.  The day and night rearview mirror has a leaver to pull towards us to reduce the glare that comes from head lights of vehicles behind us at night.

Our children enjoyed using the built-in pull up rear seat window sunshades to keep the sun from hitting them directly; I really like this feature that I haven't had in a vehicle I've used before. 

The heating ventilations can be customized for each passenger and driver, which is something we really liked. Air ventilation that comes through the small vent holes on the surface of the seats provide us with cool air during hot weather and heat for winter. 

I like all the possible ways we can adjust the seats and headrest for our comfort such as moving forward, backward, the angles and the extra lumber support for the driver's seat. The belt height can also be adjusted for front passengers.

The panoramic sunroof view from the inside allows us to see all around us without missing the beautiful scenic Canadian landscape and landmarks. I like that the open sunroof isn't visible to people from the outside, so we can comfortably keep it open. I like the safety features on the sunroof, it has a sensor to detect if an object is on its way when it is closing.

There is a lot of storage all over the SUV such as the center console storage, glove box, multi box, sunglass holder, cup holders, luggage tray and more.

The cargo space is amazing. I like the spacious trunk, which allow us to put everything we need comfortably without thinking of rearranging things to fit. There is also a neat "hidden" space in the trunk with built-in bins and cubbies to put our belonging.

The comfort of driving is superb. We liked the possibility of changing different steering modes to either comfort, normal or sport to suit our driving preference and road conditions. The sports mode make the steering wheel feel heavier while the comfort mode makes it feel lighter. 

The 2.0L turbocharged engine gives the vehicle the power of a V6 with fuel economy of a four-cylinder. We can press Active Eco mode to improve fuel efficiency by up to 7%. We tried this on our way back from our road trip and it did make a difference. 


I think it would be fun to drive in the winter, as it has heated steering wheels and heat ventilations in the seats.

There is so much to discover on this Hyundai SantaFe Sport. It is a vehicle that we have fallen in love with from the moment we got in. Hyundai SantaFe Sport 2.0T has been well thought-out and designed to make our life simple. It is a heavy, sturdy vehicle to drive in all conditions. There are many features that we got attached to during our one-week test drive, and miss it very much :)
