Are you confused about the Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport? Don’t worry; you’re not alone.
Through 2012, Santa Fe was offered only as a 5-passenger model. But for 2013, Santa Fe becomes a 3-row, 7-seat SUV that replaces Veracruz. Hyundai continues to offer a 5-passenger version, which is called Santa Fe Sport.
Santa Fe gets just one engine, a 294-hp 3.3-liter V6. Santa Fe Sport is powered by a 190-hp 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine. Optional is a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 264 horsepower.
