Improvements Include Upgraded Interior
If you haven’t looked at the Hyundai Santa Fe in awhile, now’s the time to head over to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road and check out the SUV lineup. With a freshened exterior, LED lighting and a huge upgrade to the fit and finish in the interior, the Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport can more than hold their own in the midsize SUV category. The interior is dressed up with a 5-inch color LCD touchscreen for the infotainment system that now accommodates Android Auto. An available Infinity premium audio system delivers concert quality sound as you relax in the plush seats and enjoy the woodgrain accents. A redesigned center stack has plenty of room to store and charge your electronic components.
Choose Between Natural Aspiration and Turbocharging
The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe lineup offers a choice between a naturally aspirated 2.4L engine or a turbocharged 2.0L motor. Although gas mileage estimates are close, you get a slight advantage by choosing the 2.0L with front wheel drive only. It’s estimated at a healthy 28 mpg on the highway. The turbocharged 4 cylinder delivers 55 more horsepower, but if you want the most power available, opt for the Lambda II V6 engine that pumps out 290 horses. All engines come with the Hyundai smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission.
Even Base Models Loaded With Features
It can be a bit difficult to tell between the base and premium Santa Fe models at times, with even the lowest cost Santa Fe offering a rearview camera, automatic headlights, keyless entry, steering wheel audio controls and Bluetooth connectivity. You can always add options like a power lift gate, upgraded stereo and Blue Link connectivity. The base Santa Fe Sport 2.4 starts at just $25,350. There are 12 other configurations available, topping out with the premium Santa Fe Limited all-wheel drive ultimate SUV that starts at just a smidge over $40K.
Safety Features Abound in Santa Fe
Vehicle Stability Management is just one of the many safety features available on all Santa Fe models. Also standard is Electronic Stability Control, traction control, disc brakes all around, brake assist and hill-start assist. Don’t forget that Hyundai also offers the industry’s best bumper-to-bumper limited warranty at 5 years and 60,000 miles. Head over to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road today to get a look at the new Santa Fe models and see how one would fit nicely in your garage.

Value Edition Adds Features at Low Cost
Many people already consider the Hyundai new vehicle lineup as one of the best buys in the auto industry, but the company has now cemented that reputation by adding special Value Edition trim packages to both the popular Accent and Elantra. Both packages cost just a bit more than the base model, but deliver features like cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel audio controls. Look over the entire Hyundai inventory and compare models and trim levels by taking a trip to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
Accent a Subcompact With Tons of Room
With more than 103 cubic feet of interior room in the sedan version and an extra eight cubic feet as a hatchback, the Hyundai Accent is a subcompact that has a midsize feel. Plenty of storage spaces for water bottles and electronics are sprinkled throughout the cabin. Split rear seats fold down and make the hatchback an effective hauler for those furniture runs. Starting at just $16,540, the Accent Value Edition has rear disc brakes, a sliding armrest storage compartment and 16-inch alloy wheels. It comes with a 1.6L engine that produces a peppy 137 horsepower while still earning 37 mpg on the highway.
Elantra Value Edition Packed With Options
Latch onto the new Hyundai Elantra Value Edition sedan and you get special amenities such as sensor-driven driver assistance features, LED running lamps, power driver’s seat and much more. Starting at only $20,250, the Elantra Value Edition offers $1,215 in savings versus adding the list of options to the base package. “It’s critically important to give our customers a wide variety of options, so there’s an Elantra to meet their needs,” said Hyundai planning manager Mike Evanoff. “The Value Edition lands at a real sweet spot on the spectrum of amenities and price tag.” Along with the afore-mentioned items, buyers will also receive a power sunroof, heated front seats and a 7-inch color display infotainment system that works with either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Push-button start, dual temperature climate control and a hands-free trunk release are also part of the package.
Hyundai Offers Best Warranty in Industry
Don’t forget that Hyundai offers a 5-year, 60,000 mile limited bumper-to-bumper warranty that far exceeds that provided by other manufacturers. You also receive a 10-year, 10,000 mile powertrain warranty and five full years of Roadside Assistance. Visit Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road today and see how the new Value Edition packages stack up against the competition.
‘Make Everything Better’ is the Overriding Goal
How did Hyundai go from a small car company just trying to find its place in the American marketplace to producing some of the world’s most desirable vehicles? Everyone from the CEO through the engineers and the assemblers was motivated to think outside the conventional box. By constantly wondering “How can we make things better?”, Hyundai realized that there is no finish line when it comes to designing and building quality safe, reliable and fun-to-drive vehicles. By constantly looking for better materials, ways to increase efficiency and stay in touch with the desires of consumers, Hyundai is poised to claim a larger market share in the years to come. Head to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road to inspect the entire Hyundai inventory and see if there’s a vehicle that fits your dreams.
All Technology Geared to Customer Experience
Realizing that cars are nothing without buyers, Hyundai’s technological innovations are all geared toward providing a better experience for the driver and passengers. Although gas prices have been low for awhile, it’s impossible to predict how long that will last. That’s why Hyundai puts fuel efficiency on the same priority level as performance when designing vehicles. Gasoline Direct Injection is one technology that increases efficiency while reducing harmful emissions. A dual clutch transmission, usually only found in much more expensive cars, reduces the energy loss from the engine to the wheels, increasing performance and efficiency. While all that’s important, most consumers notice the interior technology, specifically Hyundai’s infotainment system that utilizes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to make the most out of your smartphone apps. Hyundai Blue Link is a telemetry app that allows you to control certain functions of your car remotely.
Best Way to Deal With Accidents is to Avoid Them
Being better at everything includes safety. Hyundai knows the road can be a dangerous place for a variety of reasons, so they have developed safeguards to help you and your passengers avoid collisions, or minimize injuries should a crash occur. New driver assistance technology such as automatic emergency braking senses when doom is about to happen and applies the brakes if you fail to react. Lane departure warning issues an audible warning if you start to drift and electronic stability control helps avoid skidding out of control when road conditions become dicey. All these advanced features are available across the entire Hyundai inventory. See how Hyundai is building a better brand of car by stopping in at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road for a test drive.
Turbo Engine Pairs With Manual or Automatic Transmission
With a turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivering a peppy 201 horsepower, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport is an affordable sedan that delivers a dynamic driving experience. Buyers can choose either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. The Sport comes with some significant features not offered on lower trim levels, including a torsion beam axle for improved handling and larger brake rotors to provide added stopping power. See how the new Elantra Sport handles and feel the power for yourself by taking a test drive at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
Plenty of Features to Enjoy
Car and Driver magazine says the Elantra has plenty of power and a nice feature set, including a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment center that has both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to let you use a limited number of apps from your smartphone. Heated leather seats make a statement with contrasting red stitching. The cabin is smartly laid out with instruments in logical reach of the driver. The Sport also has LED taillights, a hands-free trunk lid, turn signal indicators in the side mirrors. A proximity key with push button start, HID headlights and LED Daytime Running lights are some other features not found on the competition.
Four Other Trim Levels
The 2017 Hyundai Elantra comes in four other trim levels covering a range of price points. The Base SE starts at just $17,150 and comes with air conditioning, power windows and locks, adjustable driver’s seat and a killer 6-speaker audio system. The Value Edition provides a lot for the $20,250 starting price, including smartphone connectivity, blind spot detection, power sunroof and auto dimming rearview mirror. The Eco model delivers 40 mpg on the highway with a 1.4L turbocharged engine. It also offers blind spot detection, LED daytime running lights, heated front seats and steering wheel audio controls. The top-of-the-line Elantra is the Limited trim package, which adds a little more luxury to your daily commute. Starting at just $23,815, the Limited has leather seating surfaces, lots of chrome exterior accents, dual charging USB ports and dual automatic climate control with an automatic defogger.
Tech Delivers Greater Safety
With a number of driver assistance safety features and technology that includes headlights that light the way around corners, the new Elantra is committed to getting you and your passengers safely home. Seven strategically placed front and side airbags help protect everyone in the event of a collision while available automatic emergency braking will help you avoid a wreck. Head to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road today to check out the Elantra inventory and pick the one that best suits your needs.
Study Measures Owner Experience
Hyundai was a big winner in a recent survey by JD Power measuring customer satisfaction with vehicle technology. The Hyundai Genesis was the highest rated midsize premium sedan, while the Hyundai Tucson took took the top spot in the small vehicle rankings. The JD Power study took into consideration the customer experience with using technology in six different categories – comfort and convenience, entertainment and connectivity, navigation, driving assistance, and vehicle protection. The pros at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road are well trained and ready to assist you with any questions on vehicle technology.
“Advanced safety and convenience technologies are top of mind for many drivers, and we are thrilled that our models are exceeding expectations in these crowded segments,” according to Hyundai director of quality and engineering, Mircea Gradu. “From being among the first to implement and standardize leading safety technologies such as Automatic Emergency Braking and Lane Departure Warning to entertainment features including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Hyundai is committed to providing better technological solutions for a better owner and driver experience.”
Tucson Loaded With Driver Assistance
The Hyundai Tucson comes with a number of different available features, including a full suite of sensor-driven driver assistance technology.

Smart Cruise Control helps you maintain a safe distance from the car directly in front of you. Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Assist help prevent you from drifting on those long, boring drives. Electronic Stability Control helps you maintain your position during inclement weather or dicy road conditions.

This SUV is Bad to the Bone
The annual Specialty Equipment Manufacturing Association (SEMA) show is coming up the first week in November, drawing auto industry executives and business leaders from around the world to Las Vegas. It’s a chance for parts and accessory manufacturers to show off their wares, and for automakers to let their hair down and show how a little creativity can turn a production vehicle into something from a Mad Max movie. This year Hyundai has teamed with Rockstar Performance Garage to transform a Santa Fe SUV into an off-road beast. “Rockstar conveys its endless brand energy in everything we do,” Nick Ashby, developer of the Rockstar SUV said. “Our Rockstar Santa Fe Concept is simultaneously all-show and all-go, a non-compromising concept with tremendous capabilities and a confident demeanor to match.” Although you can’t buy the concept vehicle, you can test drive and purchase the popular Santa Fe at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
List of Modifications Goes On and On
There are so many modifications to the Rockstar Santa Fe that its probably easier to list the items that didn’t change. You can’t miss the Santa Fe, with its lifted menacing presence enhanced by four giant 35-inch off road tires. Under the hood is a 3.3L V6 engine from Lambda that has a nitrous assist package along with a special cold air intake and cooling setup. LED lighting, a blacked out stealth grill, rock sliders, a winch, skid plates and cool paint job all contribute to make this one Santa Fe that’s a must see for off-road enthusiasts. Although the public can’t attend the SEMA show, there is an after party on November 4 where all the modified vehicles will be available to everyone for inspection.
Want Speed over Brawn? Check Out the Santa Fast
The fun thing about the SEMA show is seeing all the different interpretations of production vehicles. The Santa Fe that you can buy at your Phoenix Hyundai dealer, Chapman Hyundai, is a perfect blend of comfort, style and utility. For those who like a beefier off-road machine, the Rockstar Santa Fe is the ticket. But if you are a demon for speed, you need to see the Santa Fast. The standard Santa Fe motor has been replaced by a twin-turbo V6 that’s outfitted with heavy duty pistons, special injectors and a reworked valve assembly to deliver a whopping 1,040 horsepower. Special suspension and a racing interior have turned this everyday Santa Fe into a real racer that could compete on any road track in the world. To see both Santa Fes and all the other special vehicles at the SEMA show, go to the SEMA Ignited website and purchase tickets.

Each Purchase Results in Donation to Hope on Wheels
Every time someone buys a new vehicle at dealerships like Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road, the cure for childhood cancer gets just a bit closer. As of this year, Hyundai and its dealer partners have donated $115 million for pediatric cancer research through its Hyundai Hope on Wheels (HHOW) foundation. Since its inception in 1998, the program has provided funding for more than 700 research efforts at facilities and children’s hospitals in the United States. HHOW picks national ambassadors who are unfortunately familiar with the fight against cancer to travel the country and spread the message. This year, a pair of 12-year olds will be attending events and spreading a message of hope to patients across the country.
Hannah Adams was first diagnosed with cancer at age 5. Now in remission, Hannah is pursuing her interest in dance and music to set an example of what is possible for other victims of cancer. “Children diagnosed with cancer, along with their families, need the hope that I was given when going through treatments. What I want to tell other kids is that ‘life is precious, you never know what it has in store, but hope is always worth fighting for,’” she said.
Ryan Darby found out he had cancer six years ago but with the help of doctors and programs like HHOW has managed to continue spreading a message of hope. He loves playing all types of sports as well as speaking with young cancer patients and their families. “I want other children to know that even though cancer is a crazy disease, you can beat it!” he said. “For six years, I have been spreading awareness and I don’t want to stop now. It is going to take more than one 12-year-old boy to beat cancer, but I have done it before, and I won’t stop until we do it again together.”
Hyundai Doles Out $7.5 Million
Hyundai recently announced awards totaling $7.5 million in its HHOW Scholar and Young Investigator programs. Committed to the program until the words “your child has cancer” are never again spoken, the company has a goal of adding another $100 million donation to its staggering total. Through the efforts of the company, volunteers, the employees of your Phoenix Hyundai dealer, Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road, and the public, Hyundai anxiously longs for the day when HHOW is no longer necessary.
Stirs Owners’ Emotions and Excitement
Based mostly on its sporty design and outstanding performance, the Hyundai Tucson has won the title of most appealing small SUV. The JD Power research organization made the announcement recently that the Tucson took first place in the Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study. Now more than two decades old, this study measures the emotional attachment an owner has to his or her vehicle, as well as the level of excitement the vehicle demands. The study examines 77 categories ranging from the thrill of stepping on the accelerator to the comfort and security the vehicle delivers. See what’s most appealing about the Tucson in your own eyes by taking a test drive at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
Tucson Has Strong Showing in Economy and Comfort
By delivering up to 32 mpg on the highway and providing customers excellent handling and a comfortable ride, the Tucson left all other SUVs in the dust. “We are thrilled with the recognition of Tucson in this year’s J.D. Power APEAL Study,” said director of Hyundai product planning Scott Margason. “The new Tucson looks great, has two fuel efficient engines and a roomy interior that satisfies a wide range of SUV buyers. The team did a great job launching the all-new Tucson this year.” Along with economy and comfort, the Tucson scored high for the HVAC system, exterior design, interior quality and storage.
2017 Tucson Offers Four Trim Levels
Whether you choose the base SE, ECO, Sport or Limited models, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson has a little something for everyone. Starting at just $22,700, the SE comes with a 2.0L engine that produces 164 horsepower. When teamed with the 6-speed automatic transmission, it delivers 30 miles to the gallon. Other standard features include air conditioning, a 5-inch color screen infotainment system and 6-way adjustable seat for the driver. The rest of the trim levels pair a 1.6L engine with a 7-speed automatic transmission. This not only provides more power, but adds a couple of miles a gallon to the highway fuel estimate. Features like projector headlights, LED running lights, larger wheels, heated seats and a larger touchscreen to control audio, navigation and hands-free communication become available as you move to the higher-priced models.
Don’t Forget Industry’s Top Warranty
While other manufacturer’s give you a 36 month or 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty, Hyundai is known for its generous 60-month, 60,000 mile coverage. The powertrain warranty is even longer, covering 120 months and 100,000 miles. Now’s the time to head to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road and see why Hyundai is recording record sales almost every month.
