Hyundai Santa Fe Ground Clearance

Ground clearance (also acknowledged as Ride height) denotes the space from the lowest gap of the vehicle’s undercarriage and the point of the tires’ touch with the even area. Still, the manufacturer of the model might use little cheats to the typical operations to declare winsome result meaning the legit stretch from the shock absorbers, the engine oil pan or the muffler to the ground is shorter than detailed in the official specs.

It is no wonder as long as reasonable car buyers seek a heightened ground clearance to bypass hassle when parking near the barriers or getting through the bumpy terrain. The exact ride height of the model ranges between 180 to 207 mm based on the year of creation and equipment. Take into consideration that a heavy- stuffed vehicle will inevitably drop by about 1 inch of ground clearance.

Luckily, the model ground clearance can be increased with spacers for shock absorbers to make the vehicle remain higher off the ground. While building a taller model, you abandon a portion of the former stability and maneuverability in angled turns. Instead model ground clearance can be cut down aiming to get enhanced handling and stability.

There a number of ways to increase ground clearance. When it comes to lifting or lowering your Hyundai Santa Fe you can choose between bigger tires, a leveling kit, coil spring assisters, coilovers, airlift suspension, suspension lifts, etc.
