Ever since it was first introduced to the Philippines, the Hyundai Santa Fe has always been using a DOHC engine. The difference between the trim levels sold in the market lie in the engine size. The first Hyundai Santa Fe models sold in the Philippines (2.2 CRDi 4x4, 2.7 V6 4x4, and 2.2 CRDi 4x2) had a maximum 188bhp of power and 335Nm of torque. The second set of models sold (2.4 Theta II 2WD, R 2.2 2WD, and R 2.2 4WD) improved on the engine’s performance, as the newer models garnered a maximum power of 197bhp and 436Nm of torque.
Hyundai made consistency its mantra as the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe didn’t veer away spec-wise. The DOHC 16V HLA engine options of the Santa Fe’s different trim levels (R-2.2L 2WD M/T, R-2.2L 2WD A/T, R-2.2L 4WD A/T) produced a maximum engine power of 197ps@3800rpm and 43.0kg-m@1800-2500rpm of torque. The other parts of the Hyundai Santa Fe’s drivetrain are motor-driven power steering with a rack and pinion system, ventilated front brakes and solid disc rear brakes, a MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link type rear suspension, and alloy wheels.
