These features make getting around easy, engaging and more comfortable. Innovative thinking is everywhere, from the Hillstart Assist Control (HAC) and Downhill Brake Control (DBC) to the amazing fabric on the seats and the available Hands-free Smart Liftgate with auto open.
This must-have available feature uses technology to deliver maximum convenience. It automatically opens the rear liftgate when you stand within three feet behind the vehicle with the key for more than three seconds. And unlike some vehicles, there’s no need to kick or shuffle your feet to engage. Plus, the handy height-adjustable function allows users to stop the liftgate at various heights to avoid low overhangs.
Use your power and connections to get the most out of every drive. The available Infinity® Logic 7® Surround Sound Audio System has 550 watts with 12 speakers. There are also inputs that let you connect an iPod®, iPhone® or other music sources via USB auxiliary input jacks. And Bluetooth® is standard, so you can stream music or make and receive calls while staying focused on the road.
Offered as options or upgrades by some competitors, Santa Fe Sport’s standard Hillstart Assist Control (HAC) minimizes backward roll when stopped on steep hills, while the Downhill Brake Control (DBC) helps you maintain control when you’re headed down steep hills.
Drivers enjoy a greater sense of control and satisfaction courtesy of Hyundai’s innovative Driver Selectable Steering Mode (DSSM). Select one of its three operating modes—Comfort, Normal and a retuned and enhanced Sport mode—and adapt the Santa Fe Sport’s steering characteristics to a range of driving preferences.
Hyundai’s innovative Blue Link Telematics System is available on the Santa Fe Sport and has an array of features to make your life easier. Connect to Blue Link through your smartphone, a web application or an in-car system to start your vehicle remotely, locate a gas station, find a shortcut, learn about mechanical issues, call for help and much more. Blue Link Connected Care is provided for a complimentary 1-year trial period. Enrollment is required to activate this feature.
Approach your Santa Fe Sport with the available Proximity Key in your pocket and enjoy the ultimate convenience. No more fumbling with the key when you’ve got a key that enables your car to recognize you. Unlock or lock your car, start the engine with the push of a button and go.
Some like it hot. Others prefer keeping it cool. Either way this available feature ends those front-seat climate conflicts by letting the driver and front seat passenger set and monitor temperatures separately.
The Santa Fe Sport’s standard seats are covered in YES Essentials®* deluxe seat cloth, which is stain resistant. Plus this material has an antibacterial feature to control odors. The fabric also has innovative anti-static technology that helps disperse the electrostatic charge that builds up as you enter and exit the vehicle.
