The new 2013 Santa Fe is now bigger and better

The new 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe has been completely redesigned for the first time since 2007, only the second time in its existence. Surprising everyone the Santa Fe is now bigger and boasts a V6 engine.

The Santa Fe now stretches to 184.6 inches, a width of 74.0 and a height of 66.1 and has Hyundai’s signature “fluidic sculpture” design. The exterior allows the Santa Fe to be sleek, slender, and modern, which has been a trend among Hyundai’s newer models.

As for the performance aspect of the updated Santa Fe Hyundai used 30 percent more high-tensile steel which brought down the overall weight of the car by 266 pounds. By installing either the 190-hp, 2.4-liter direct-inject four-cylinder or a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder the new Santa Fe has a 16 percent improvement in rigidity. Either engine option for Arizona Hyundai drivers is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and will have improved mpg numbers compared to previous models.

A look at the interior shows a completely new dashboard, electroluminescent gauges, HD radio, Pandora audio, and Blue Link telematic connectivity system. The materials used were also upgraded giving the interior an overall improved atmosphere. There is added leg-room and cubic feet for cargo space behind the rear seats. Other highlights Phoenix Hyundai drivers can benefit from include: seven airbags, including one to protect the driver’s knees and side airbags bags that deploy in a rollover crash; driver-selectable steering effort; a panoramic sunroof option; heated rear-seats that split 40/20/40 and offer separate fore-aft adjustability.

Overall the new Santa Fe offers a new modernized look that is not only aesthetically appeasing but also offers new technology and safety features that allow this crossover to stand out amongst the crowd.
