2020 Hyundai Santa Fe Towing Capacity

2020 Hyundai Santa Fe Towing Capacity

Family SUVs are getting more and more powerful. As well as offering comfort and convenience for family driving, some of the best modern SUVs have cargo and haulage capabilities more usually seen in the small pickup world.

One example of this trend is the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe, which builds on the traditional Hyundai qualities of value and features by adding a mammoth towing capacity to the mix.



What's So Special About the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe Towing Capacity?

Simply put, the 2020 Santa Fe can haul an incredible amount of stuff behind it, even with the most basic models in the range. With an official towing capacity of up to 2,268kg, this Hyundai is more than capable of transporting dirt bikes, jet skis, motor boats, and even smaller camping trailers.

Importantly, there are no upgrades or additions needed to reach this towing capacity: it's a standard feature of the 2020 Santa Fe across the range.

What's more, the Santa Fe can also handle up to 670kg in internal payload, making this an ideal vehicle for carrying cargo of all kinds.


Why Is the Towing Capacity So High?

The Santa Fe is a solidly built SUV with a strong chassis and frame ideally suited to hauling a weight behind it. However, the real star of the show is the highly capable powertrain.

Based around a 3.3L V6 engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, and optional all-wheel drive, the Santa Fe is capable of an extremely healthy 290 horsepower. Couple this with the strong 252lb-ft of torque, and the engine supplies most of the explanation for the excellent towing performance.


However, the transmission also plays its part. Fitted with the exclusive Shiftronic system, the engine's raw output is automatically balanced toward the driving conditions, helping to use the full available power for towing safely.


Advanced Technology

But towing isn't the end of the Santa Fe story. The passenger cabin is extremely well equipped with tech features, with highlights including:

  • Rear-view camera.
  • Heads-up information display.
  • Wireless device charging.
  • Smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.


Add to all this a fully modern suite of active driver assist features, and it's hard to think of a tech area where the Santa Fe doesn't impress.
