2014 Hyundai Santa Fe at Mike Miller Hyundai
Hyundai has long been known for supplying drivers with vehicles that can take them on adventures, or at least make even the most mundane of drives into exciting journeys. Some of the larger and more capable models-crossovers and SUVs like the Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport-have become favorites among more intrepid drivers, who prize these types of models for their hardier frames, ability to handle tougher driving environments, and abundant cargo space. If you're this type of driver, then Hyundai is your type of automaker, and the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe is right up your alley. And at Mike Miller Hyundai, we'd love to help you explore this very worthy model.
Available in two well-appointed trims-GLS and Limited-the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe is a great example of modern automotive engineering and design. It's packed with features and offers drivers and passengers a safe, comfortable way to get from Point A to Point B. Both trim levels come with a 3.3-liter GDI DOHC 24-Valve V6 engine that produces 290 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 252 lb-ft of torque at 5200 rpm. Front-wheel drive is standard, as is a six-speed shiftable automatic transmission. For a safe, smooth ride, drivers can always rely on traction control and stability control.
The exterior of the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe makes use of a few choice design elements to communicate its spunky spirit: a chrome accent grille, door handles, and chrome-tipped dual exhaust; projector headlights with bright LED accents; and a bodycolor rear spoiler with LED lighting mounted on it. Its heated side mirrors can be outfitted with optional turn signal indicators. A power liftgate is also an available option. Trailer wiring and a roof rack make it easier to bring along the equipment you need for your travels.
Inside, drivers and passengers will find many comforts and conveniences. The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe is outfitted with features like air conditioning with HVAC vents in both the second and third rows, power windows, an eight-way power driver's seat, and heated front seats. Seating is covered with YES Essentials® stain-resistant cloth, though leather is an option (and is standard on the Limited trim). Seatback pockets, a center armrest with a storage compartment, and a hidden cargo-area storage compartment provide passengers with plenty of places to stow away personal belongings. The tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel is heated on the Limited trim, and leather-wrapped for both trim levels. Drivers will appreciate the Bluetooth® hands-free phone system and steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls, which allow for access without compromising focus on the road ahead.
Audio and entertainment features are plentiful up front, the standard AM/FM radio, CD and MP3 playback, HD radio with multicasting, and 4.3-inch touchscreen color display offering plenty of ways to interact with the audio of your choice. An auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink® and a compass installed is available as an option, but a complimentary SiriusXM activation and three-month trial subscription is included standard.
Safety is one area where the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe does very well. Its four-wheel, four-channel antilock braking system gets a boost from electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, downhill brake control, and hillstart assist control, making for greater stability both in motion and when stopping. For greater visibility, GLS drivers will appreciate the rearview camera, and if they want to add on the optional Blind Spot Detection system and rear parking assistance system (standard on the Limited trim) they may choose to do so. This roomy crossover SUV also makes use of airbags in multiple areas of the cabin to protect drivers and passengers from all sides, like driver and passenger advanced airbags, knee airbag, and even roof-mounted side-curtain airbags with rollover sensors. It should come as no surprise to any loyal Hyundai follower that this vehicle earned the top score of "good" on all crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints & seats. And last but not least, Hyundai Blue Link® adds on many features that can provide drivers with peace of mind on the road: gas station location, access to vehicle functions, the ability to call for help in an emergency, and more.
