How much horsepower does the Hyundai Santa Fe have?

If you're looking for an SUV that actually lives up to the sport and utility aspects of its class designation, you need look no further than the new Hyundai Santa Fe. This iconic Hyundai SUV has been a mainstay in its lineup for years now, and that staying power is largely due to the ample selection of powertrain options it has in store. In fact, whether you're looking for something dependable to drive on a daily basis, something a bit more athletic for outdoor adventures, or even something with a bit of pulling power, the Hyundai Santa Fe can be outfitted to suit your needs.

As a five-passenger SUV, the new Hyundai Santa Fe has two different powertrain options to choose from. Coming standard with a 2.4-liter engine on its SE, SEL, and SEL Plus trims, the Hyundai Santa Fe is eminently driveable with up to 185 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque at its disposal. With a compliant ride quality, predictable dynamics, and effortless response to driver input, the Hyundai Santa Fe cruises with confidence, allowing you to take on daily tasks like errand running, grocery shopping, and the daily commute to work without worry.

Of course, if you look to upper trim levels on the Hyundai Santa Fe like Limited and Ultimate, you'll have the option to upgrade to the available turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. With up to 235 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque available, this powertrain turns the Hyundai Santa Fe into a much more lively SUV to drive. What's more, when outfitted with its available HTRAC® all-wheel drive, the Hyundai Santa Fe can even tackle a bit of light-duty off-roading, so it's easy to load up with hiking gear and get away from the city for an afternoon at your favorite state parks.

However, if you've got a growing family and you need an SUV with the power to keep pace you’re your busy life, you'll want to go all the way up to the Hyundai Santa Fe XL. With space for up to seven passengers, this SUV escapes the trap of sluggishness that so many of its rivals have fallen prey to thanks in large part to its 3.3-liter V6 engine. Good for up to 290 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque, the Hyundai Santa Fe XL may be large in size, but it's still got plenty of muscle to make highway on ramps, passing, and merging into easy tasks.

That said, hearing about how powerful the Hyundai Santa Fe can be is one thing, but experiencing that horsepower for yourself is entirely different.
