The space, safety and protection of your family should not be at the expense of a pleasant trip, and the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe manages to mark all the boxes on this wish list. It is spacious, well equipped and offers a first class security classification, but it is also powerful and works well. If you’re looking for the best power in the class, the Ford Explorer offers models with a 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 engine with twin turbochargers and 385 horsepower. The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe will be smoked. In addition, there is no hybrid version of the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe. People looking for electrification in this class must buy the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.
Last year, Hyundai destroyed the exterior of 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe and the operation was a success. The SUV came out of the design studio with a new 5 bar grille, a more aggressive front and a more elegant rear. It is contemporary with strong shoulders, flared wings and an aggressively tilted backlight. Squint and its three quarter rear view, with its large angled exhaust pipes, recall the BMW X5. The basic SE model gets the integrated rear spoiler and very nice 18 inch wheels, while the Limited versions are equipped with fog lights, roof bars and 19 inch wheels.
The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe offers two seating configurations. The standard second row bench tilts not only, but divides into 40/20 and slides forward to maximize third row legroom. In this configuration, the new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe has a capacity of seven people. If it’s too much, there are two captain’s seats available in the second row, not only more comfortable, but also facilitating access to the Hyundai’s third row. The comfort of the front seat is high and the stain resistant fabric of the base model is nice. All materials are impressive to the rubber that covers the inside of the door handles.
Most rumors suggest that the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe will come standard with the same naturally aspirated 3.3 liter V6 as before. The engine currently has a capacity of just over 290 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe will probably not change much, so it should have about the same performance and fuel efficiency. However, the eight speed automatic transmission should greatly improve your morale. It is likely that the five seater model at the lower end will be equipped with a turbocharged engine package, with the sole exception of the basic equipment level. We also said that a hybrid version, and possibly a complementary version, is a real possibility. This would allow the new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe to enter an untapped market, always advantageous for a car manufacturer. However, so far, much information has not been published, but we expect an Atkinson cycle engine, possibly supercharged, with an electric motor mounted on the crankshaft and possibly a second electric motor mounted inside. of the gearbox.
As with other new Hyundai models, the new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe should be based on a new platform. The car will probably use its new Y7 chassis. This has improved stiffness compared to the previous Y6 and is also lighter. The new chassis should also allow Hyundai to better utilize the interior, so the car will not have to be bigger to offer more interior space. So far, the pricing scheme of the next model is poorly known. It seems that the five seat version could start around $ 25,000 with the seven seat version for more than $ 30,000. This time, the price will increase because of new tuning levels and engines. Basically, this will allow the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe to compete with the cars of a higher class, which is really good for Korean society. Launched in 2012, the current 2018 Hyundai Santa regeneration will soon be replaced. Instead, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe will be launched, which should bring some improvements over the current car. So far, little information is known about this, but an investigation has been going on for a long time.
