I love my job and test driving vehicles for a week or more at a time is one thing that I do over and over. The test drives allow me to learn the vehicles inside and out and either learn to love them or learn the hate on them. Ever since I first test drove a Santa Fe Hyundai I can attest to the value packed into this vehicle.
From stopping power to lane departure warnings the features of this vehicle are incredibly generous. Perhaps, it’s not just the features and amenities, but the family friendliness of the vehicle to adapt from hauling kids to hauling sports bags, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has it all going on.
Recently I test drove this vehicle and it was hard narrowing my 3 Features To Love on the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport down to just a few. This vehicle rocks features. Lavishly live travel out loud and immerse yourself in amenities and features that other vehicles in the same price range wish they boasted.
3 Features To Love on the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
Now as I see a Santa Fe on the road I often wonder what amenities its owner is enjoying. In my opinion, the price tag on these vehicles to me is amazingly understated for the premium amenities built in. Let’s take a look at these 3 features to love on the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and see what you think?
Automatic Emergency Braking System
If you have not seen the commercial, let me give you an overview of what the automatic emergency braking system is on the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. You suddenly become involved in your driving and the typical attention span to task while driving is 8 seconds. You zone out after that 8 seconds and really did not see that car stop in front of you along a busy road, but your Hyundai did. What happens next is the magic and one of the 3 features to love on the 2017 Santa Fe Sport: your car will stop because the system works on both a camera and radar sensor! Crash averted!

The Light That Curves With You
While properly termed “bending light” I have to tell you this is insanely cool and a feature I have tried to locate on several other vehicles that I have test driven since and it’s not available! What if you were driving around a bend and the lighting system went in that direction wouldn’t that rock your driving world? Guess what? The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has this built in and it’s called the Dynamic Bending Light and it is DYNAMIC!
When you turn the steering wheel the illumination of the lights turn on and trust me, you are not going to find this easily on other vehicles in the same class!
High Beams Are Not Polite
Guess what, the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe is going to help you stop high beaming those oncoming vehicles, but you won’t have to do a thing except drive. This perhaps was my favorite feature as we have lots of hills, curves and odd roads where I put my high beams on and forget about them. No worries because the High Beam Assist available feature takes care of everything for you.
Your high beams area automatically dimmed for the oncoming traffic and when the traffic disappears back into high beam mode you go as it automatically senses the beams! Simply awesome.
