2019 Hyundai Santa Fe – Powerful and Elegant SUV
The Hyundai newly in-house developed HTRAC is based on four-wheel drive technology that controls variably the power of the wheels. The name is a combination of the H from Hyundai and the first part of the word ‘traction’. The HTRAC variable torque control enables agile handling and better torque application depending on wheel grip and speed of vehicle.
In combination with the drive modes, HTRAC improves acceleration, stability and fuel efficiency. The system increases traction on snow, gravel and, of course, on regular road surfaces while enhancing cornering performance. The ratio of torque distribution is changed with the drive modes and displayed in the cluster. In sport mode HTRAC delivers improved acceleration with up to 50 per cent torque distributed to the rear wheels. In comfort mode it offers improved stability with up to 35 per cent torque distributed to the rear wheels. In eco mode HTRAC provides improved fuel efficiency by sending power to the front wheels only. In slippery conditions the system automatically distributes power to all four wheels automatically.
The standard 2.0-litre diesel engine has two power outputs: 150 PS / 110 kW and 185 PS / 136 kW and 400 Nm of torque. The engine can be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission (6MT) available both with front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive or alternatively with the newly developed 8-speed automatic transmission (8AT) with four-wheel drive.
