How much horsepower does the Hyundai Santa Fe have?

When it comes to an SUV like the Hyundai Santa Fe, horsepower varies depending largely on what trim you choose. Are you looking for dependable daily driver? Something athletic enough to carry you and your family off on adventures? Or maybe something that feel really exciting to drive? Whatever you're looking for, we're confident you'll find a Hyundai Santa Fe trim suited to your needs here at Rick Case Hyundai of Roswell.

Now, for most folks, the standard engine that comes on the Hyundai Santa Fe SE, Hyundai Santa Fe SEL, and Hyundai Santa Fe SEL Plus will do just fine. With up to 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque, the standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is a great all-around power source with prompt response times, smooth linear acceleration, and competitive efficiency.

That said, if you want a five passenger SUV with a bit more pep, look to the Hyundai Santa Fe Limited or Hyundai Santa Fe Ultimate. Motivated by an available 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, these trims are good for up to 235 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, giving them a much more engaging and dynamic road manner. Plus, with available Hyundai HTRAC® all-wheel drive, the Hyundai Santa Fe Limited and Hyundai Santa Fe Ultimate perform better than many of their competitors in off-road driving situations, so you can always take on the path ahead with confidence.

At the top of the power range is the new Hyundai Santa Fe XL. With a 3.3-liter V6 engine, the Hyundai Santa Fe XL may be a seven-passenger SUV, but it certainly doesn't drive like one. Performance figures of up to 290 horsepower and up to 252 pound-feet of torque ensure that the Hyundai Santa Fe XL is much more athletic than many of its rivals, and it can even handle a bit of light duty towing when properly equipped.

But regardless of which Hyundai Santa Fe you choose, you can be certain you're picking one of the most renowned SUVs on the market today. And if you'd like to find out more about the performance credentials of models like the Hyundai Santa Fe and Hyundai Santa Fe XL, don't hesitate to stop by Rick Case Hyundai of Roswell to have a chat with our team today.
