Santa Fe Sport Nabs Top Safety Pick +

2017 Santa Fe Sport

Front Crash Prevention Earns Added Mark

Remember in school how much better it felt to get that “+” after your letter grade? That’s how Hyundai designers are feeling today after earning a Top Safety Pick + grade from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) on the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. By adding optional front crash prevention, the Santa Fe earned top marks from the IIHS and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). “We are thrilled that Santa Fe Sport has achieved the gold standard for CUV safety from IIHS and NHTSA,” said Hyundai VP Mike O’Brien. “These awards underline our commitment to developing advanced technologies that assist in avoiding crashes all together. A class-leading body structure protects occupants if a collision does occur.” The 2017 Santa Fe Sport will be available later this year at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Santa Fe Sport Loaded With Safety Features

You can put your mind at ease when transporting your precious cargo with the 2017 Santa Fe Sport. Standard safety equipment on all trim levels includes vehicle stability management, traction control, electronic stability control and seven airbags. Four-wheel disc brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist is also standard. Hill-start assist control and downhill brake control help you navigate those steep hills. Tire pressure monitoring keeps you up to date if you start to lose inflation.

Rating Improves for Front Overlap

The 2017 Sport got the highest rating possible from the IIHS for the small overlap front test, going from “marginal” to “good.” Due to an improved structure, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is better at keeping outside elements out of the cockpit during a crash, while new airbag placement better protects the driver. All other IIHS tests earned the top rating of “good.” The front crash prevention system is included in the optional tech package under the name “automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.” This package also includes an electronic parking brake, headlights that follow the curve of the road, adaptive cruise control and lane assist. Test drive the new Santa Fe Sport later this year when it becomes available at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Hyundai Assurance Top Warranty Program

You’ll not only feel safer driving a Hyundai, you’ll have peace of mind with the top warranty program offered by any automaker. Hyundai delivers a 5-year/60,000 mile bumper-to-bumper transferable warranty with each new car. This includes roadside assistance for the full term of the warranty, along with a 10-year/10,000 mile guaranty on the powertrain.
