I was sitting at a stop light this evening with my wife and two kids in the car when I see a guy in a red Hyundai pull up next to me. When the light turns green he punches it. Deciding to have some fun I floor the SF Sport and keep right up with him until 50mph, which is the speed limit.

He was driving a Genesis R-Spec 2.0T and I think it was a manual. Considering all the people I had in my car it made me feel really good that it kept up.

And your evidence that he was using any more than half throttle is what exactly ?

On the Santa Fe forum, 2.0T owners complain about lack of performance and need reminding it's a 2 tonne vehicle with aerodynamics like a brick.

I would love to take my Santa Fe out on the track with R-Compound tires and
lowering springs to see how it performs when you throw it around in the corners.
