2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Golden CO

Both the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe in Golden CO and 2017 Toyota 4Runner have a lot to offer for you as a driver, starting with the capabilities that their body stylings provide. You can fit almost an equal amount of cargo inside the Santa Fe’s sleek and refined exterior, or the more rugged and adventurous look of the 4Runner; both also allow seating for five passengers on ultra-comfortable leather-stitched seating, ensuring that you’ll get wherever you need to go in style. However, for drivers looking for more punch and efficiency for the price, the 2017 Santa Fe and what it hides under the hood warrants a second look. It produces 20 more horsepower than the 4Runner through an engine that’s more compact, and you can achieve better fuel economy as well. To add to the Santa Fe’s brilliant first impressions, its Active Cornering All-Wheel Drive transforms your drive into one of the most responsive and adaptive on the road. The 2017 Santa Fe also brings you some of the most advanced safety and driver assistance features in its class, many of which the 4Runner cannot lay claim to. Some of these include:

  • Multi-view Camera System
  • Electronic Parking Brake
  • Dynamic Bending Light
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Many more!
