Starting at $25,350 (plus destination charge), the Santa Fe comes with a choice of powertrains. Base engine is a direct-injected, 2.4-liter four-cylinder, producing 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. The alternative turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder engine develops 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet. Both work with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Fuel economy differs little between the two. With front-drive, the 2.4-liter is EPA-estimated at 21/27 mpg city/highway. The turbo four gets an EPA estimate of 20/28 mpg city/highway (20/27 in Ultimate trim).
