Hyundai Ready to Rock SEMA with Santa Fe Sport Concept

Hyundai will be read to rock the Specialty Equipment Manufacturing Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas later this month with the Rockstar Energy Moab Extreme Off-roader Santa Fe Sport Concept vehicle. Teaming up with Rockstar Energy drink, Hyundai has created a one-off monster for off-road driving with 35-inch Mickey Thompson Tires, oversized brakes and a King coil-over suspension system that’s able to absorb some wicked bumps. “The Rockstar Energy Moab Extreme Concept was specifically designed to withstand the extraordinary demands of Moab off-road terrain,” according to Rockstar’s marketing director, Nic Ashby. “Leveraging the outstanding Santa Fe Sport platform and powertrain, we definitely pushed its capabilities to new limits to conquer the pinnacle of challenges at Moab.” You can’t buy the Rockstar version of the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, but you can see and test drive the popular SUV when you visit Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.

Santa Fe Sport Makes Great Platform for Concept

The tough and roomy Santa Fe Sport makes a great platform on which to build a concept vehicle. The affordable SUV starts at just $22,200 and comes with a peppy 185 horsepower engine that delivers up to 27 mpg on the highway. Choose the Sport 2.0T or 2.0T Ultimate models and you get a 2.0L turbocharged engine that provides even more horsepower and greater fuel efficiency. Even the base model comes with standard 17-inch alloy wheels, LED taillights and a beautiful chrome grille. Move to the Sport 2.0T and you get leather seats, larger wheels and some key driver assistance safety features such as blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert and lane change assist. The 2.0T Ultimate has that name for a reason as it delivers a panoramic sunroof, 19-inch wheels and High Intensity Discharge headlamps.

Plenty of Technology for Modern Driver

Modern drivers demand technology, whether that’s in the form of communication or performance, and the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport delivers in spades. Choose the affordable value package for the Sport and you’ll get heated dual power mirrors, push button start and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that works both with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to let you use a limited number of smartphone apps. A power driver’s seat, heated front seats and fog lights are also part of the package. The Tech Package for the 2.0T Ultimate delivers the most technology available, including dynamic bending light that turns your headlights around corners to illuminate your way, along with a number of driver assistance features that alert you to possible danger. See the entire lineup of Hyundai Santa Fe Sport models and take a test drive when you visit Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
