Spacious, well built vehicle that drives smoothly and feels safe.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

I have owned this car for 3 years and mostly enjoy driving it. I have the base model which did not have the backup camera or heated seats which I miss having. It is a very roomy vehicle that drives comfortably. I really enjoy that the back seats fold down & it has very spacious room for bulky purchases that will not fit in a regular car. The heat & a/c have vents front & back & work well. My one complaint is the 'recall' they just performed a few months ago, when driving around 40-45 mph the car goes flat & you really have to step on the gas to get speed back up. I have also test driven the 2018 model which has a beefier engine & more power. Overall it is a well built vehicle that I feel safe driving. Hyundai does need to address the recall/class action on the engine and step up for their customers. This is for fourth Hyundai I have owned.

Great price, luxury feel.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

I have had this car for about 4 months now, but I love it. I have the sport 2.0t ultimate model and it has all of the bells and whistles, but buying it used and because of name recognition, we got it for a much cheaper price than similar vehicles. I love the backup camera, heated and cooling seats, heated steering wheel, full sun/moonroof, and navigation system the most right now. It seems to be reliable so far and based on research I did before buying. It gets about 23 miles per gallon which is not bad, but goes much quicker than my other household car. There is an eco boost feature that helps alleviate this some. There is also not much room in the back seat, but we will be a family of two for the first 5 or so years of owning this car so it is not particularly an issue for us.

Wanted to trade up my Santa Fe, so I did. With a newer Santa Fe!

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

This is the 2nd Santa Fe I've owned. My first was a 2008 that I was in love with, but was getting up there in miles. Drove several others before purchasing my 2015 Santa Fe sport, it has everything I want! I wanted good gas mileage (30 Hwy), reliability, and comfort. I valued that it came with a full sized spare! It does not offer the optional 3rd row that I loved about my first Santa Fe, but my girls are starting to drive so it's not necessary. The trade was incredible cargo space in the back, and more leg room for seating. It's quiet and has more guts than a regular 4 cylinder vehicle.

The good and bad about a Hyundai Santa Fe sport. Red with cloth seats.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

It shakes when you are standing still. Dealership say it may be the gas, but now I am using only shell gas and it still shakes. Also it is just so plain to be a 2015 car. I would expect more bells and whistles. Other than that it is a pretty nice car. I drove it to Chicago last weekend and it didn't shake once. Go figure.

Excellent vehicle for families.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

Comfortable amount of space even with two car seats. My tall husband had ok leg room even with our toddler behind him. Fits a stroller and groceries in the truck well. Comfortable seats in all areas, driver, passenger and in the back. Good on gas and drives well in the snow. Has hands free calling and XM radio.

- Amanda D

It is a comfortable and easy to drive vehicle.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

It is comfortable and is easy to drive. It is spacious and lots of room. But there are some blind spots, you have to use your mirrors a lot to back up. It does not take long to warm up, but then again I have a auto start. Easy on gas. Comes in lots of colors. I also gave the rubber floor mats that help alit.

Review of the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

I have not had any major problems with the car other than the tires seem to get holes every easily. The car drives great and has plenty of space for the five of us as well as storage. It is pretty fuel efficient and rides smoothly. I love the heated/cooled seats and the panoramic sunroof

- Adam S

Excellent dealer warranty.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

Vehicle is very reliable. Excellent service program/warranty. However, it is too noisy when driving on the highway. Front cabin seats are narrow, rear seat is hard & uncomfortable on long trips. Rear windows have a mesh liner that block the sun yet you can see out at the same time.

- Katherine F

Vehicle sluggish on hills.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

Very comfortable car. Enough space for a family of five. Enough space in the back to be able to put at least a 50 inch dresser if needed. Vehicle needs to warm up so it could go 0-60 in a good amount of time. Sluggish going up hills also if you are going below 30 mph.

- Maria O

Comfortable and sporty! This Hyundai santa fe is the perfect vehicle.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

I haven't had any issues with it. I do regular maintenance and take of the interior and exterior. It is comfortable even on long trips. The seat wraps around you and the lumbar support feels great on my back. I love the seat warmer/cooler and steering wheel warmer.

- Christi V

This is why I love my car

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

Excellent vehicle, spacious, all luxury features in base car, gas mileage is not bad but it could be better. I was going to drive from FL to CA and went for this vehicle because of the comfort and space basically. I discovered the good stuff on the way. Love me car

2015 Hyundai santa fe sport.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

Mpg is about 28 on highways and 17 in the suburbs. Very reliable vehicle. Rarely needs fixed. Turbo engine goes very quickly. Leather seats look very sleek. Automatic trunk opener is a plus. Extended trunk room. Lots of access space. Automatic seating adjustment.

- Miranda G

A small yet powerful SUV.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

I love the size of my vehicle. It has all the features I want in a vehicle. Bluetooth, heated leather seats with lumbar support, bike rack, and driver assist. The only issue I have is that I wish the touchscreen was larger and was compatible with android auto.

- Tiffany D

Convenient and easy. Beautiful appearance with technology. Keyless start.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

Sophisticated appearance. The performance is very good. Smooth drive and love the electric mileage screen. It tells you when the due is for maintenance and the problems in the screen. Never really had any problems. It is easy to tell when you need to get gas.

- May B

Great vehicle, reliable and comfortable.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

I do not have issues with my Santa Fe. It is very reliable. Good for snow. Definitely a family car. It is big but not too big. Very comfortable. I will definitely recommend it. This is my second Santa Fe and I plan to keep going with the Santa Fe family.
