There were other models by various manufacturers that sold well, to beside the new Santa Fe, but most have already been on the market for some time; vehicles like the Toyota Corolla and Audi A3 have remained strong competitors despite the fact that their last update was several years ago. On the other hand, Hyundai’s surge to the top of the charts after only a few days on the market just proves that Hyundai meets the demands of car buyers better than any other automaker.
The completely redesigned 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe offers drivers more power, fuel economy, and luxury features than previously. Equipped with a 2.4L 4-cylinder base engine, the Santa Fe gets up to 190 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. There is also the choice of a turbocharged 2.0L, 264-horsepower 4-cylinders and 3.3L 290-horsepower V6 available on upper trims as well. For all that power, Hyundai estimates that the 2013 Hyundai Sport 2.0T trim will get upwards of 31 mpg on the freeway, the best fuel economy in its class.
Hyundai’s new take on the Santa Fe replaces the long-running Veracruz model, and with a seven-passenger capacity built to take on rivals, like the Honda CR-V and the Ford Edge; based on August’s sales numbers, the Santa Fe is poised to become strong segment leader.
