Available in two-wheel or all-wheel drive, the Santa Fe is powered by a 175-hp 2.4-liter four cylinder engine, or a 276-hp 3.5-liter V6. Two transmission choices are offered, a six-speed manual, and a six-speed automatic with SHIFTRONIC. Standard safety features include six airbags, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, electronic stability control with traction control, active front head restraints, and a tire pressure monitoring system.
The big news for 2011 is the addition of a GLS V6 trim (late availability). Limited trims receive a standard Infinity surround sound system.
