2016 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

2016 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)
Advanced Standard Safety Equipment differentiates Santa Fe from its competitors

2016 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
