Core Protection in the Hyundai Santa Fe

In the case of an accident, the Hyundai Santa Fe's innermost protection equipment is ready to spring into action. Upon impact, the Santa Fe's advanced airbag system will engage and deploy for maximum passenger safety. This system features the following:

  • a driver's knee airbag
  • driver and front passenger front- and side-mounted airbags
  • side-curtain airbags coming down from the roof that can detect a rollover scenario

An energy-absorbing steering column helps mitigate the excess energy associated with a crash to keep the driver safe.

In safety crash testing, the Hyundai Santa Fe earned the highest possible scores from both administrations:

  • TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety*
  • 5-Star Overall Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Santa Fe Active Safety Systems

The Hyundai Santa Fe doesn't just keep you and your passengers safe in the case of a crash or collision; its under the hood mechanics feature several programs that are always monitoring your SUV's performance and looking out for the safety of you and your riders.

Three of the Santa Fe's active safety systems are targeted toward giving you a triple dose of control on the road by watching wheel spin and making sure your steering input follows through. They include:

  • Vehicle Stability Management
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Traction Control

The Hyundai Santa Fe comes equipped with a complete Anti-lock Braking System with Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist. This equipment ensures the vehicle's brakes are always ready to stop with confidence, even if you don't make it to the pedal in time.

Available Driver Safety Technology

The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport makes several cutting-edge safety systems available that use small cameras and radars to help improve visibility from the driver's seat. 

  • A standard rearview camera or available multi-view camera helps drivers have a more complete view of their surroundings while moving the SUV in reverse.
  • Blind Spot Detection and Lane Change Assist work together to check conditions and let you know when the coast is clear to switch lanes on the highway, displaying a corresponding indicator on the dashboard screen or the driver's side mirror when you activate your turn signal.

  • Rear Cross-traffic Alert
  • Smart Cruise Control
