The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport was all-new last year, and Hyundai’s midsize crossover gets a slight price bump for 2014 to a base price of $25,605 with destination, $50 higher than last year. 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T models receive a much more significant price increase of $2500 to $31,305, due to new standard equipment.
The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is available with a choice of two four-cylinder engines: a 2.4-liter direct-injected engine with 190 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque and an optional turbocharged 2.0-liter producing 264 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic and can be equipped with either front-wheel-drive, or four-wheel-drive for $1750 extra.
Changes for 2014 are minor and amount to new safety and convenience features and some package reshuffling. For the standard 2.4L Santa Fe Sport, the $1150 Popular Equipment package gains the 4.3-inch touchscreen audio display and backup camera which were previously part of the Premium Package. The $3200 Premium Package gains rear window shades and blind spot detection, and the $3200 Technology Package gains ventilated front seats with memory on the driver’s side and rear parking sensors.
Santa Fe Sport 2.0T models, which previously came standard with 2.4L Popular Equipment features as standard, will now come standard with 2.4L Premium Package equipment, hence the price increase. This includes leather, keyless entry and push button start, a power passenger seat, and dual-zone climate control. The only option for 2.0T models is now the $4350 Technology Package, which gains HID headlights and LED taillights for 2014 in addition to navigation, an Infinity audio system, a panoramic sunroof, a heated steering wheel, and heated rear seats. Santa Fe Sport 2.0T models will now come standard with 18-inch wheels; the 19 inch wheels which were previously standard on 2.0T models are now part of the Technology Package.
The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport goes on sale later this fall.
