What drivers love about the used Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
This crossover is great for anyone who needs to haul both people and their stuff--which is basically anyone who is interested in an SUV. That's because, compared to segment competitors, this Hyundai crossover has a penchant for generous rear-seat leg room and cargo space. These used crossovers are typically loaded with convenience features; these do everything from start the engine at the push of a button to pop the liftgate open, hands-free. Convenience features might seem like little things, but once you've have them you'll eventually wonder how you ever got by without them.
The comfortable seats are another reason to choose this crossover over the competition. If you tend to spend a lot of your time in your car, seating comfort is something you don't want to miss. This Hyundai crossover keeps you feeling supported in hours of bumper-to-bumper traffic. It's equally comfy on the highway, where the suspension smooths out any unseemly bumps.
In true crossover style, the used Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has some sporty moves. For starters, it should be no problem to track down a used model with all-wheel drive. If you love winter adventure, this performance technology will help you maintain composure on slippery surfaces. But all-wheel drive is about more than just all-weather safety. It makes your ride sportier overall, especially as you take on turns and winding country roads.
What to look out for
This used crossover has one drawback we can't help but mention. The thick roof pillars do minimize some rear visibility. Luckily, a rearview camera was available for every single model year and even standard on the 2017 Santa FE Sport and newer. This equipment solves the issue, giving you an extensive look at what's back there.
Shoppers Take Note
The new 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is essentially a redesigned version of the Santa Fe Sport. Before its redesign, the Santa Fe was a three-row version of the two-row Santa Fe Sport. But the new 2019 Santa Fe is only available with two rows. The Santa Fe Sport name might be retired, but this crossover lives on with this new crop of two-row Hyundai crossovers. If in the future you want to replace your used Hyundai Santa Fe with a newer model, now you know where to look.
