Hyundai Santa Fe Engine Oil Finder

The name Santa Fe promises adventure. The fourth generation of the Hyundai Santa Fe, which competes in the popular 4.80m class with some excellent SUVs like the VW Tiguan Allspace or the Kia Sorento, has changed its character.

The latest version of the Hyundai Santa Fe has adapted to the new safety requirements and to the changing brand image. It has been completely redeveloped and can be ordered as a five-seater or seven-seater which now measures 4.77 meters from nose to tail. The distance between the axles also grew and with it the space available in the interior and in the huge luggage compartment.

The Hyundai Santa Fe offers what you would expect from an SUV today: excellent suitability for day to day use, generous equipment and more than enough space. However, you should not expect too much from the third row of seats in the Santa Fe Seven, nor from the driving performance. The Santa Fe therefore drives in a calm and relaxed way, perfect for a family SUV for people who don't have too much of a adventure attitude.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Hyundai Santa Fe's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Hyundai Santa Fe engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Hyundai Santa Fe? Whether you are topping up your Hyundai Santa Fe oil or doing a full change of your Hyundai Santa Fe's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.

We have listed all the Hyundai Santa Fe models and engine types in the following table, as well as the correct engine oil grade for each of the cars. You can use the search and filter to easily find the right engine oil for your Hyundai Santa Fe.
