New Hyundai Santa Fe in Bel Air near Baltimore, Maryland

The Santa Fe Offers Adventure and Convenience

The Hyundai Santa Fe is an SUV that has a lot of versatility. There are seven trims, giving Owings Mills customers the option to choose from a range that includes more budget-friendly SUVs as well as high-performing vehicles with top finishes. It gives five passengers plenty of room, and it has ample cargo room to carry gear and equipment. Plus, any of the trims can come in all-wheel drive if you plan on heading out in tough conditions.

The Santa Fe SUV can come with one of two engines. The standard option is a 2.4-liter, 185-horsepower four-cylinder engine with 178 pound-feet of torque. The other option is a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo engine with an impressive 260 pound-feet of torque and 235 horsepower. With this model, towing capacity increases to 3,500 pounds from the standard 2,000 pounds. The turbo engine comes on the Limited 2.0T and the Ultimate 2.0T trims.

Paired with the engine is an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Hyundai Santa Fe includes SHIFTRONIC technology, giving you the ability to manually shift if you want to have a more connected driving experience.

Fuel economy is estimated to be 22/29 (city/highway) miles per gallon on the standard engine with front-wheel drive. It drops just a bit to 21/27 mpg with all-wheel drive. The turbo models get an estimated 20/25 or 19/24 mpg depending on whether front-wheel or all-wheel drive is selected.

Space is one of the reasons why many of our customers at Jones Bel Air Hyundai end up choosing the Hyundai Santa Fe near Towson. It has a total interior volume of 146.6 cubic feet, with 35.9 cubic feet behind the second row. Giving you more flexibility is a back row that can fold down; this opens up 71.3 cubic feet of storage opportunities. You can configure the seating in various ways since the second row is a 60/40 split bench.

Also contributing to comfort are the interior features inside the SUV. The base model has a six-way manually adjustable driver seat, and all the others have an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat along with heated front seats. The Ultimate and Ultimate 2.0T has front seats that are also ventilated. These top trims have heated rear seats and a memory system for the driver seat.

We know that staying connected is important to our customers in Baltimore. The Santa Fe comes standard with a seven-inch display and the much-desired Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. USB outlets are included for easy charging, and SiriusXM radio is available on all models except the base trim. In the Ultimate trims, the touchscreen is upgraded to an eight-inch version with integrated navigation and wireless charging. With Bluetooth connectivity across the line, you can talk hands-free.

Technology plays an important role in the safety features. The rear-view monitor system lets you keep an eye on what's going on behind you, and the parking guidance helps you out in tight spots. A surround-view monitor in the Ultimate trims gives you even greater perspective.

Not only does the cruise control system maintain a set speed, but it can also adjust to changing conditions. It can maintain a designated distance with the car in front of you, giving you peace of mind as you drive through unpredictable traffic.

Other safety features include a Vehicle Stability Management system that can help with maintaining proper grip on the road. Several advanced mechanisms are in place that works to prevent accidents related to obstacles in front of you, vehicles in your blind spot, and cars that are crossing behind you when you're backing up. The great thing about this comprehensive safety package is that it's standard on all trims. You don't have to worry about budget when thinking about protecting yourself and your passengers.

The Santa Fe is a smart choice for anyone interested in driving something spacious, safe, and powerful.
