After significant changes last year, the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport will remain visually identical to the current model but will gain a new, more value-oriented trim and a handful of new available features.
As a carryover model, we expect no changes in the appearance of the Santa Fe Sport for 2018, as it will carry on the same refreshed appearance as the current model. The interior will retain the look and feel of the 2017 model, but it will gain new wood trim on leather-equipped models and three full years of free Blue Link.
In terms of standard features, we expect the Santa Fe Sport to remain unchanged. If this proves true, look for it to continue with standard 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, heated mirrors, rear spoiler, cloth upholstery, 5-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, and more.
The big change for 2018 is the addition of the new Value trim. This sits just above the base trim and includes more premium features like, dual power mirrors with heat, auto up and down power front windows, proximity key with keyless start and a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
It also comes with dual-zone auto climate control with Clean Air Ionizer, Hyundai Blue Link, a power driver’s seat with lumbar support, heated front seats, LED daytime running lights, front fog lights, and roof side rails.
