2015 Hyundai Santa Fe

Hyundai has announced the updates to the 2015 Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport, which now offer more standard comfort and convenience equipment for 2015, in addition to some refinements to the steering and suspension systems.
The electric power steering system in the 2015 Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport now uses a 32-bit microprocessor to give the SUVs a more refined steering feel. The revised steering system retains Hyundai’s Driver Selectable Steering Mode, which features a retuned “Sport” setting that offers firmer steering. Front wheel bushings have also been retuned for 2015, which also enhances steering feel. Suspension enhancements increase wheel bearing stiffness and lower control arm bushing stiffness, which increases the overall lateral stiffness of the front suspension. Revised rear suspension geometry and bushings increase lateral stiffness.
