Everything that is pleasing and beautiful comes with a hefty price, right? But what if someone tells you that there is a crossover SUV that has been equipped with deluxe features, great road performance, expansive space without the hefty price you would expect it to have, will you believe it? Well, you should because 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe is for real. The newly redesigned 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe is making great impressions among its critiques as it continuously exceeds their expectations. Hyundai is offering the newly redesigned Santa Fe in two models: Santa Fe GLS and Limited. Hyundai Santa Fe now features a third row seating area thereby increasing the crossover SUV’s seating capacity to seven. However, if that seating capacity may sound to be too much for you then a smaller version of the Santa Fe is also being offered with five-passenger capacity featuring only two rows.
Inside the crossover’s cabin is a massive space with materials that surely showcase its high quality. The controls are well-placed, touchscreen menus and functions are pretty intuitive and its switchgear is smooth and well-organized. One will surely love the long ride with the Hyundai Santa Fe as it gives each of the passengers enough head, leg and shoulder rooms. A healthy cargo area is something to brag about as well with its 35.4 cubic feet of space for the five-passenger Santa Fe or 41 cubic feet for the larger seven-passenger SUV.
Engine choices for the new Santa Fe includes: 2.4-liter four-cylinder capable of producing 190 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque paired with a six-speed automatic transmission; the other engine choice is a 2.0-liter engine that further increases the output to 264 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque.
