The new 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe was taken for a ride in San Diego, California by a group of specialists that agreed to share with us different impressions. Apparently they observed a lot of standard elements, but also some very surprising ones as well that will make people all across North America pay good money for it.
At the front we can see a fourth chrome bar in the grille and also we can notice the fact that the sides of the car have been sculpted with an upward swing in the shoulder leading a stylish look that does impede a bit on the airiness of the cockpit. We have to admit that the new Hyundai Santa Fe looks a lot more stylish in comparison to the outgoing 7-passenger Veracruz. The engineers have also offered a lot of new technology like for example, the BlueLink comes as standard and it includes voice text messaging, point-of-interest search capability and turn-by-turn navigation.
The users will also get updates on the status of their vehicles each month. In the middle of the dash, the owner can get an 8-inch multifunction display. The bad news is that to get the Leather and Navigation Package on the GLS mode you will have to pay $4.000 and $2.900 for the Technology Package on the Limited. The difference between the two is that the GLS is less expensive and has a 7-passenger capability and the Limited comes with bucket seats in the second row, reducing total passenger capability to six and adding standard leather seating surfaces. The new Santa Fe includes heated front and rear seats and steering wheel that come as optional. It also features a 12-speaker surround sound audio system developed by Infinity, but which is only available on the Limited.
Under the hood it hides a 3.3-liter V6 engine capable of generating 290 horsepower and 252 lb. ft. of torque which is being sent to the wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission. In comparison to its competitors, like Toyota Highlander and Nissan Pathfinder, the new 2014 Santa Fe offers really nice figures. The price starts at $28.350 in GLS trim and at $33.100 in Limited trim. Source: autoblog
