The Santa Fe Sport is the smaller of the two Santa Fe models, filling the spot previously occupied by its eponymous predecessor. The longer-wheelbase Santa Fe effectively replaces the Veracruz. The Sport model shares a strong similarity with its bigger brother, but there are some key differences. The Sport is available in five-passenger configuration only, and only with four-cylinder engines. The base powerplant is a 190hp 2.4L direct-injected I-4, with the 2.0T model getting a 2.0L turbocharged, direct-injected I-4 making 265 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. A hands-free power rear liftgate is a newly available option starting with the ’15 models. The Santa Fe Sport remains a stylish, value-packed entry into the midsize crossover segment but is squeezed at the lower end by the handsome, fun-to-drive Mazda CX-5, and on the higher end by the new ’15 Nissan Murano—and the segment is expected to heat up further with the introduction of an all-new Ford Edge.
