Facelifted Hyundai Santa Fe And Sante Fe Sport Pose For Chicago’s Cameras

Debuting with some styling updates, a host of new technologies and an extensive range of standard features is the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport.

Revealed in Chicago, the entry-level Santa Fe still has a 2.4-liter engine with 185 hp on tap, whereas the Sport variant offers a turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol pumping out 245 hp. The most powerful of the range remains the seven-seater Sante Fe that comes exclusively with a 290 hp 3.3-liter V6.

Some of the key styling changes include different vertical LED daytime running lights, updated headlights and taillights, a different front grille and dual exhaust tips. At Chicago, two examples are on display, one finished in blue with chrome elements and the other painted silver with dark accents, including the wheels.

As with the current model year Santa Fe, the 2017 range continues to offer a lot of tech considering its mid-$20k price point. Some of these include Remote Start with Climate Control, Stolen Vehicle Recovery, remote keyless entry, heated exterior wing mirrors, blind spot monitoring and a rearview camera.
