How much horsepower does the Hyundai Santa Fe have?

The Hyundai Santa Fe has always been positioned in the Hyundai SUV lineup as a great family vehicle, with its spacious interior, ample cargo room, and comprehensive array of safety features. But just because you want a reliable family car doesn't mean you want to give up on power and the fun of driving? Luckily, with plenty of outstanding engine options, models like the Hyundai Santa Fe and Hyundai Santa Fe XL are some of the few family cars that still manage to deliver engaging driving experiences.

Now, between the Hyundai Santa Fe and Hyundai Santa Fe XL, the former is the smaller of these two SUVs, so it doesn't need as much power to get going. As a result, most folks will do just fine with the standard 2.4-liter engine on the Hyundai Santa Fe SE, SEL, and SEL Plus trims. With output figures of up to 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque, the Hyundai Santa Fe is effortlessly easy to drive and offers competitive fuel economy returns to boot, so it's great for families who want to save on monthly transportation costs.

On the other hand, if you're looking for a more lively driving experience, you can always upgrade to the Hyundai Santa Fe Limited of Hyundai Santa Fe Ultimate. Outfitted with an available turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that's good for up to 235 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, allowing this five-passenger SUV to achieve some truly confidence-inspiring acceleration, so passing on the highway is easy to do without hesitation.

At the top of the power range is the Hyundai Santa Fe XL, and with its capacious seven-passenger form factor, you can expect plenty of muscle to go along with it. Motivated by a 3.3-liter V6 engine, the Hyundai Santa Fe XL offers up a stunning 290 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque on demand, allowing it to tow small boats and cargo and camping trailers when properly equipped.

But while it's all good to pore over the performance specifications of the Hyundai Santa Fe and Hyundai Santa Fe XL, power is something that's best experienced firsthand. So, if you're interested in trying out these exceptional new SUVs for yourself, feel free to drop by our showroom at Rick Case Hyundai Duluth and let us get you behind the wheel.
