The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport was introduced in 2013 as part of the third generation Santa Fe lineup. It is smaller than the normal Santa Fe, seating five instead of the usual seven, and comes in two different trims, the Sport and the Sport 2.0T. The Sport base model features a 2.4L, 190-hp GDI 4-cylinder engine, 17″ alloy wheels, projector headlights, stain-resistant cloth seats, plus remote keyless entry. The Sport 2.0T features a more-powerful 264-hp 2.0L twin-turbo engine (hence the moniker 2.0T) with proximity key entry, 18″ alloy wheels, automatic headlight control, dual zone climate control, and a 4.3″ color touchscreen audio display with a rear camera.

The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is relatively new; having been introduced only two years ago, with the first rolling off the production line in 2012 for the 2013 model year, many carriers are still relatively unfamiliar with the smaller body. But that can only help you; the smaller the vehicle is, usually the easier it is to ship, and as such the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport should be a bit easier than the Santa Fe to ship. They’re similar in size, but the Sport is smaller as it only seats five and has a slightly lower height and wheelbase than the standard Santa Fe. This should make it a bit cheaper to ship as well; carriers price their loads on how far the shipment is going and how big the vehicle they’re shipping is, as larger vehicles tend to weigh more, and more weight means decreased fuel efficiency.
More weight also tends to mean a higher price when it comes to the car transport industry, with pickup trucks, vans and SUV’s costing more than standard cars. The Santa Fe Sport, while smaller than the standard Santa Fe, is still a sport utility vehicle, and with most sport utility vehicles comes higher shipping prices. Auto shippers call this an oversize or overweight auto transport fee, which is assessed on any vehicle that is larger than a standard car. It likely won’t be a whole lot, but it’s not something you can avoid with a Santa Fe Sport, as it’s rolled into the auto transport quote that you are given.
