If you like the design of the Hyundai Santa Fe but don't need the third-row of passenger space, you may be interested in the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. It's a smaller, five-passenger crossover with the same sense of ruggedness to its style.

In this car review, you'll discover the Santa Fe Sport's most relevant features and capabilities for your daily drive. Then, you can decide if this impressive midsize crossover is a smart match for you and your family. If you have questions, reach out to us at Peacock Hyundai Hilton Head!

2018 Santa Fe Sport: A Spacious Interior

 One factor that crossover shoppers in Hardeeville, Hilton Head Island, and Bluffton care about is the size and quality of the cabin. With the 2018 Santa Fe Sport, you won't have to worry about finding space to fit your friends and family, as the second row's generous 39.4 inches of legroom helps it accommodate kids and adults alike.

We think you'll like the materials, too. Every trim uses faux-wood inlays in the dashboard, and they have a nice matte finish and grain. The two-tone dash is a nice touch that adds some contrast and keeps things from feeling too monotonous, and the available leather seats add a luxurious touch and are easy to clean!

Technology for a More Convenient Ride

 When the ride in your Hyundai Santa Fe Sport starts to feel too stuffy, you can open up to fresher air and dazzling light with the optional panoramic sunroof. It runs from the front seat to the back, so passengers throughout the cabin can enjoy that added sense of spaciousness.

Looking to take advantage of that 35.4 cubic feet of cargo space? An available hands-free power liftgate makes it easier. Unlike similar technologies on other cars, you won't have to kick your foot under the rear bumper to operate this one. Just stand behind the car for a few seconds with the key fob on you, and the gate will lift.

Engine Performance Specs & Capabilities

The 2018 Santa Fe Sport comes standard with front-wheel drive (FWD), but you can upgrade to all-wheel drive (AWD) for more traction in slippery road conditions. It also uses a standard six-speed SHIFTRONIC® automatic transmission, which can switch over into manual mode and let you shift gears on command.

Under the hood, you'll have two engine options. The base 2.4-liter 4-cylinder offers 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque, which is plenty for typical around-town driving. If you want a bit more pep out on the highway, the available 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 has a more robust 240 horses and 260 lb-ft up its sleeve.
