What’s New for the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe?

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe arrives this year in a refreshed form. Hyundai Santa Fe updates include revised styling, more standard technology, and newly available safety features.

With refreshed styling on both the front and rear, the Santa Fe is more attractive than ever. It has sleek lines that give it a sense of motion, even while standing still. The front end styling also includes new LED daytime running lights.

Inside, the Santa Fe is just as stylish with a classy design and well-placed controls. Buyers will love features like a standard 7-inch touchscreen on all trim levels, as well as a rearview camera, Bluetooth, Hyundai’s Blue Link system, and even Android Auto compatibility. This year, there is even an available USB charging port for the third row.

For 2017, buyers can add more safety than ever before. These new features include a lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking for forward collision mitigation, a 360-degree parking camera, and adaptive cruise control.

Powering the Santa Fe is a 3.3-liter V6 engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. All trims come standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available. When properly equipped, the Santa Fe can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

New Year’s Resolutions for your Car

New Year
Happy New Year from Perry Hyundai!

If you haven’t made any New Year’s resolutions, yet, that’s ok. 2017 has just begun. If you want an idea for a resolution you can actually keep, consider these resolutions for your car.

  • Drive more efficiently. Being an inefficient driver not only wastes your money, but it’s bad for the environment, too. One of the biggest dings to your efficiency is aggressive driving. In fact, doing things like speeding and accelerating too quickly can decrease your efficiency by as much as 35%.
  • Stop idling. Letting your engine run while you’re not going anywhere is a complete waste of gas. If you’re going to stop for longer than you normally would at a stoplight or stop sign, just turn off the engine. You should also avoid “warming up” your car before you leave in the morning. The fastest way to warm it up is just by driving.
  • Keep up with your maintenance. Check in your owner’s manual and you should find a recommended service schedule that includes things like oil changes, tire rotations, and more. Get caught up on this to ensure your car runs the way it should for years to come.
  • Don’t run on empty. Try not to let your tank fall below one-quarter full. In the winter, keep it at least half full to prevent frozen fuel lines.
