Sasaki Time Vehicle Review of the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T
Time for another vehicle review and this time it is the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport! This is the forth time I have been able to review the Santa Fe but the first time I have gotten to review the Sport version!
Not only is the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport stylish but it is also a lot of fun to drive.
Even the HD headlights are stylish as well as aggressive looking as they throw out infinite amounts of light to keep you safe on the road.
The turbo charged 4-cylinder engine has a lot of power! Quick acceleration and speedy passing are a breeze for this vehicle! The Sport is rated at 19 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg combined. I got about 20 mpg during my review with mostly city driving.
All of the advanced safety features that you have come to expect from Hyundai are here! From the blind-spot monitoring system, to the rear cross-traffic alert system and lane-change assist that are optional for the base trims and standard on the 2.0T trims. There is also a rearview camera that comes standard on all but the bottom base trim.
The drivers instrument panel and the navigation system is neatly laid out. There is Clean Air Purification that comes with the 2.0T trim for its automatic climate control system. A large infotainment screen is fantastic and easy to use. The drivers seat is a very comfortable power adjustable one. Heated seats and leather upholstery come with the 2.0T and the Ultimate Package adds a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats and ventilated front seats.
I like the faux wood trim though I would love it more if it was real wood. The interior colors are great and add to the stylishness of the exterior.
Huge 19-inch alloy wheels hug the road. Excellent handling and a smooth ride make this a fun vehicle that you may never want to leave the drivers seat.
The panoramic sunroof is one of my favorite features! The entire sky is now opened up to you! Imagine watching the rain fall or the planes fly overhead or simply look at the sky or the stars! This comes with the Ultimate Package!
So much room for you and your family or you and your friends. Even the rear seats have a lot of leg room as well as head room.
Lots of room in the back from trips, trips to the grocery store or loading up with items for a fun holiday weekend to the beach or to the park. Underneath the trunk floor are bins that are perfect for keeping tools or using for groceries and such. The Smart Tailgate is a fantastic feature that is new to the Sport and definitely comes in handy when you do not have a free hand.
The stylish good looks, the superb handling, the powerful turbo charged engine, plus all the tech and safety features make the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T a fantastic family vehicle!
The 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport starts at just under $26,000 but my review vehicle came in at $36,600 for the turbocharged 2.0T with Limited Trim and the Ultimate Package.
