This V6 engine suit a shopper’s needs in of towing, drivability and fuel The Santa Fe’s Lambda II GDI also has a high-pressure direct system (over 2,200 which dramatically increases and torque, while reducing consumption and emissions.

This eliminates the need for a large V6 engine and increases the compression for greater thermal efficiency and Santa Fe’s V6 tow rating of up to pounds is perfect for towing boats or weekend toys. The Hyundai Santa Fe‘s was tuned in Ann Arbor, Michigan to American driving expectations.


The Lambda V6 is mated to Hyundai’s six-speed transmission with SHIFTRONIC® control. This transmission smooth shifts and a wide spread that suits the characteristics. An automatic transmission is included to keep the transmission oil at its temperature, which improves fuel economy.

All this analysis is completely to the driver.

Drivers of the Hyundai Fe equipped with Active Control AWD will realize the advantages:

Improved lateral while cornering

Removal of over- and under-steer, by reducing traction to the front and rear

High thermal capacity, helps prevent overheating hill climbs and trailer

High-strength steel weight and also allows the to work optimally. Ultra-high tensile sheet metal has been applied to the outer panels for the first time in the history.

In addition, anti-corrosion was applied to 70 percent of outer and floor structure.

New hot stamping and methods have also applied to impact members, provide added strength, the number of body parts and the architecture lighter. The amount of adhesives has also been significantly for improved body crashworthiness and durability.

This priority on weight allows the three-row Santa Fe to carlike handling, outstanding and fuel efficiency.


All models a standard Vehicle Stability (VSM) system, which manages Electronic Stability (ESC) and the Motor-Driven electric Steering (MDPS). VSM works to two effects. The first is when a accelerates or brakes on a split-mu (slippery on one side, dry pavement on the and the vehicle wants to pull in one VSM detects this condition and a signal to the MDPS to apply assist.

VSM counters the pull and provides eight Newton of counter-steering. VSM reacts the same way sudden lane changes or cornering. Active Cornering AWD models integrate torque and vectoring.
