The Sante Fe has two engine offerings: a base 2.4-liter four-cylinder that generates 190 horsepower and a 264-horsepower 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. This and drive type—front-wheel or all-wheel—represent the first choices a buyer makes.
Cars with the turbocharged engine feature an additional level of standard equipment. Dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery and heated front seats come at no extra cost, for instance.
Buyers of the base model can get many of these items in the Popular Equipment and Premium packages. A Technology package is available with both engines, and includes big-ticket items like a panoramic sunroof, navigation, ventilated front seats and heated rear seats.
The extra performance option adds verve, but the turbo engine is not essential if performance isn't a top priority over value.
