2013 Hyundai Santa Fe
Here is some review for new 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe with specifications detail, price and release date of 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe.
2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Review and Specs
The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe is the fully redesigned version of this South Koran automaker’s midsize SUV. It has all-new styling, four- and six-cylinder power – including a sporty turbo four — and promises outstanding fuel economy. This third-generation Santa Fe adopts Hyundai’s eye-catching “fluidic sculpture” design. And it continues the brand’s progressive approach to features; a navigation system, for example, is available on every trim level, a claim no direct competitor can make.
The 2013 Santa Fe lineup consists of the base Sport model, the Sport 2.0T, and LWB versions in GLS and top-line Limited trim. All come with front bucket seats and an interior design that incorporates a dual-cove dashboard and a prominent central control panel to create cockpit-style front seating.
The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe assigns the Sport versions four-cylinder engines and the LWB a V-6. All use a six-speed automatic transmission with a floor shifter that affords manual-type gear control. Every 2013 Santa Fe is available with a choice of front- or all-wheel drive.
The 2013 Santa Fe base Sport model has a 2.4-liter four-cylinder preliminarily rated at 190 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque (think of torque as the muscle behind acceleration). By comparison, the 2012 Santa Fe’s base engine was a 2.4-liter four with 175 horsepower and 169 pound-feet of torque.
The 2013 Santa Fe Sport 2.0T is named for its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. It has 264 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. That compares favorably with the 2012 Santa Fe’s less-fuel-efficient 3.5-liter V-6, which was rated at 276 horsepower 248 pound-feet of torque. The 2013 LWB Santa Fe replaces that V-6 with a new 3.3-liter six that debuted in the Azera; here it rates 293 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque.
The 2013 Santa Fe follows Hyundai’s successful formula of feature-laden cars and SUVs packaged to sell at prices lower than those of similarly equipped rivals. Among popular items standard on every 2013 Santa Fe are Bluetooth hands-free mobile-phone connectivity, a USB iPod interface, and XM satellite radio with three-month trial subscription.
Also included is Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics system, a fee-based service that delivers emergency assistance, turn-by-turn navigation, remote unlocking, voice text messaging, and stolen-vehicle slowdown. Blue Link also includes “Geofence” capability in which the owner can be notified by email or text if the loaned-out vehicle has violated preset geographic boundaries.
