The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport competes in the cutthroat world of small SUVs today.
The market is crowded and competition is stiff: The Toyota RAV4 is a perennial favorite and gains a hybrid powertrain to differentiate it from the rest.
The Honda CR-V boasts a frugal inline-4 that can reach into the 30-plus mpg on the highway—same goes for the Nissan Rogue.
If you’re not picking up what we’re putting down, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport could use a new powertrain beyond its 2.4-liter inline-4 and 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4, both of which aren’t class-leading in fuel conservation.
The good news? The Santa Fe Sport boasts more usable space than the smaller Ford Focus and the aging Chevy Equinox.
Perhaps the Santa Fe Sport has always been a value proposition anyway, and this year is no different.
With updated looks, the Santa Fe Sport is the best looking in Hyundai’s SUV lineup, but it's price is quickly approaching the rest of the pack at up to $37,000.
