Changes for the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport:
Hyundai bestows upon the 2014 Santa Fe Sport a significant number of upgrades, adding a Blind Spot Detection system and manual rear side window sunshades as part of the optional Premium Package for the base model, and as standard equipment for the 2.0T model. This year, the 2.0T model gains standard 18-inch aluminum wheels, and all Santa Fe Sports can be fitted with rear parking assist, HID headlights, LED taillights, ventilated front seats, and memory for the driver’s settings, all included in the optional Technology Package.
Hyundai sells the 2014 Santa Fe Sport in standard and turbocharged 2.0T formats, each available with an optional all-wheel-drive system. The Santa Fe Sport 2.0T adds more than just extra power. This version of the crossover SUV is equipped with 18-inch aluminum wheels, fog lights, automatic headlights, roof rails, heated front seats and side mirrors, a wiper de-icer system, and extra safety equipment. It also includes leather, power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear window sunshades, a passive keyless entry system with push-button starting, a color touchscreen radio display, a reversing camera, and more.
Popular and Premium Packages are available for the base model, and they add the features that come standard on the 2.0T model. Both versions of the Santa Fe Sport can be upgraded with a Technology Package that installs a panoramic sunroof, a navigation system, a premium audio system, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and rear parking sensors. Additionally, this package adds 19-inch wheels, HID headlights, LED taillights, and a surround-sound audio system to the 2.0T model.
Engines and Transmissions:
A 190-horsepower, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine is standard for the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe. For extra oomph, try the Santa Fe Sport 2.0T, which is equipped with a 264-horsepower, turbocharged, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes lots of torque down low in the rev range. Both engines are paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, with AWD available as an option.
Fuel Economy Ratings:
According to the EPA, there’s not much of a penalty associated with selecting the turbocharged engine. In combined driving, the base engine returns 23 mpg with front-wheel drive and 21 mpg with AWD. The Santa Fe Sport 2.0T model’s fuel economy rating is 22 mpg with FWD and 21 mpg with AWD.
The 2014 Santa Fe Sport is a safe SUV. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives it a 5-star overall rating. Last year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Santa Fe Sport top marks in all crash-tests except the new small overlap evaluation, for which the IIHS has not assessed the Santa Fe as this summary is written. Official IIHS ratings for the 2014 version were unavailable as this summary was written.
Hyundai offers a Blind Spot Detection system and a rear parking assist system for the Santa Fe Sport this year, in addition to new Xenon HID headlights.
