Whatever kind of car you're driving on the roads of Burleson, Benbrook, or the greater Fort Worth area, technology matters, and Hyundai has packed as much as they could into the new Santa Fe. This SUV is a strong competitor in a crowded field, with sleek styling, luxurious cabin design, plenty of performance, and, of course, great infotainment and driver-aid technologies. Hiley Hyundai of Burleson offers you this review and breakdown of the Hyundai Santa Fe technology before you come in to see one for yourself.
This year, the Santa Fe hits showrooms with a few big-time technology upgrades. First up is an optional 10.25-inch touchscreen interface for the vehicle’s infotainment system, which delivers responsive and intuitive use and bright, clear graphics so you can see where you are and get where you're going at a glance. Wireless device charging can also be had, a nice convenience that more and more vehicles are beginning to offer.
The advanced driver aids, however, are where it really shines. Between Lane Keeping Assist, Smart Cruise Control, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, it creates a very smooth integrated package. The aids work exactly as they should and truly let you feel like you've got a second set of eyes keeping you alert in the cabin.
At the base and mid-range trim levels, you get a pretty great suite of features, including wireless integration for Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®, plenty of USB ports, LED headlights, and the majority of the driver aids including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist to keep you in the center of your lane, Smart Cruise Control to keep your distance between other vehicles constant, and even Trailer Sway Damping to help control a trailer you're towing.
At the mid-range SEL, you can add available Highway Driving Assist for an even more relaxed and comfortable commute. You also get a push-button start with keyless entry for convenience, and comfort features including power adjust driver seat, heated mirrors and front seats, wireless device charging, and the BlueLink® connected services that let you control your car with a smartphone app.
Here you can also add the Convenience and Premium Packages that give you features like a hands-free tailgate, digital key functionality for your phone, dual automatic climate control, a digital instrument panel, and puddle lamps. You can also get a 12-speaker sound system by Harman Kardon®, the larger touchscreen, and LED interior lighting.
When you step up to the Limited level, you get all of the above, plus the rest of the high-end tech. This includes parking sensors, driver memory settings, ventilated seats to keep you cool, heated back seats, and a heated steering wheel for extra comfort. You also add to your driver aids a surround-view camera plus a Blind-Spot View Monitor to help you see what you normally can't, Remote Smart Parking Assist, and automatic wipers.
