    2015 Santa Fe/Santa Fe Sport offers an advanced AWD system and features Active Cornering Control AWD

       

       • Advanced electronic AWD system designed by Magna
       • Includes driver selectable AWD lock - allows for torque split between the front and rear
          wheels — for off-road and very slippery conditions only
       • Previously, AWD systems control wheelspin by braking a spinning wheel or cutting the
          power from the engine
       • Active Cornering Control AWD system is the next generation in AWD systems — transfers
          torque to the wheels that have the most grip
       • Torque vectoring is achieved by using redesigned differentials that can distribute power to
          the rear axle for improved traction — applies brakes to the inside rear wheel for improved
          cornering performance
          — Improved lateral stability while cornering
          — Removal of unintended over-and under-steer by reducing unwanted traction to the front
              axle










      
    ADVANCED SAFETY TECHNOLOGY


    2015 Santa Fe has an impressive standard braking system

    • Front and rear disc brake information:
       — Front/Rear: Ventilated single piston / Solid single piston
       — Brake disc diameter (front/rear): 12.6-inch / 11.9-inch
    • Standard ABS with Brake Assist, EBD, DBC and HAC
       — Includes Brake Assist, Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Downhill Brake Control
           (DBC) and Hillstart Assist control (HAC)

    2015 Santa Fe Sport and Santa Fe's Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) links safety features such as ESC, TCS, ABS, EBD, and Brake Assist to maximize their effectiveness in potential collision situations


    ESC - Electronic Stability Control
    • When sensors detects loss of steering control, it
       applies appropriate braking force to help steer
       the vehicle back to the driver's intended path
    • Cuts passenger car fatal crash risk by 23%
       (thecarconnection.com Aug. 10, 2011)
    • Federal requirement on all passenger cars from
       2013 model

    TCS - Traction Control System
    • Enhances driver control in adverse traction
       conditions or inclement weather situations by
       reducing wheel spin or loss of traction in
       acceleration

    ABS - Anti-lock Braking System
    • Helps prevent wheel lockup in the event of an
      emergency braking, which causes the loss of
      steering control

    EBD - Electronic Brake-force Distribution
    • Balances braking forces at each wheel when the car is dynamically loaded
    • Helps maintain control in difficult braking situations

    Brake Assist
    • Assists drivers by applying maximum braking force when an emergency stop is detected
    • Effectively reduces emergency stopping distance
