The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe XL

Holiday shopping might be much easier if you could make one only trip to the mall and then home again. A 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe XL gives you plenty of room in the back to put all of your shopping, so one trip might be possible.

Cargo Room

If you want to buy a snowboard for one of the kids and a big screen television for the other, you won’t have to make more than one trip because the Santa Fe offers 2,265 litres of cargo space. It also has another 51 litres under the floor to store even more gifts. That makes a great place to hide gifts from those who snoop.

The seats in the Santa Fe XL are arranged to make the cargo area very versatile. Depending upon the model, you may have a second row seat that has a split fold 40/20/40 and a third row 50/50 split. With these choices, you can fold down one side and carry very long objects like lamps while still offering your passengers plenty of room for a comfortable ride.

Hyundai placed other compartments throughout the interior that give you even more storage places to tuck those gifts.  Of course, they will also hold your cellphone, glasses and other gadgets.

A Smart Power Liftgate makes loading and unloading easy.



All of the storage and cargo room is nice, but the Santa Fe XL really stands out in the performance department.

Because you won’t settle for underperformance from a vehicle, Hyundai equipped the Santa Fe XL with a 290 horsepower 3.3L V6 engine capable of 252 lb.-ft. of torque, which comes in handy in case you have to tow those holiday gifts home. The Santa Fe XL has 5,000 pounds of towing capacity, so you can buy everyone a new snowmobile.

Shifting gears is easy thanks to the smooth 6-speed automatic transmission that lets you switch to manual if needed through the SHIFTRONIC® shift mode for better control in some driving situations.

Drive Mode Select lets you choose between normal driving, Eco or Sport modes by touching a button. This gives you control over the throttle response and the steering effort and lets you choose a mode that fits your needs.

Comfort and Joy

Since Hyundai put so much effort into making the Santa Fe XL a powerful and efficient driving machine, you know they put that much attention into making the cabin a place where you could fully enjoy your driving experience.

The interior is as comfortable as your favourite chair. Hyundai equipped the Santa Fe XL with a memory driver’s seat, so it remembers the settings that you are the most comfortable at when driving. It has standard heated front seats for those cold Canadian winter days. Depending upon the model, yours may even be equipped with rear heated seats that make your passengers very happy.

A heated, leather wrapped steering wheel makes cold commutes easier as your hands warm up along the way. Steering mounted cruise and audio controls ensure that your hands never need to leave the wheel. The Bluetooth® hands-free system keeps your hands in place, as well.

Other features include lumbar support, adjustable seats, a 12-speaker audio system, a camera and touch screen navigational system.

You will enjoy letting the sunshine in by way of the panoramic sunroof that brightens up the interior no matter what the weather is outside.

There are so many other features that we would like to show you, so stop by and test drive a new 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe XL today.
