One of the most popular Spanish-language publications in the United States, FAMA Magazine, has named the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe as the recipient of their coveted Editor's Choice Award
. The award is given to a vehicle that exceptionally meets the criteria for what women look for in a vehicle. Some of the criteria include: strong performance, safety, design, and a strong sense of innovation in the vehicle.
The Santa Fe has been popular for its efforts in reaching industry standards as cited by FAMA. Dorsett Hyundai (http://www.dorsetthyundai.com/
, a proud carrier of the Santa Fe, sells some of the market's most respected vehicles to Terre Haute drivers. The Santa Fe is available with today's popular features including: Bluetooth connectivity for select cellphones, an in-console navigation system, a panoramic sunroof, and a push-button ignition. Higher trims are also available with leather seating and trim.
Mike O’Brien, the vice president of Product and Corporate Planning for Hyundai Motor America spoke about the Santa Fe receiving the award. “It’s an honor to receive the Editor’s Choice Award by FAMA Magazine, one of the leading Hispanic voices in the automotive industry and in particular, Latina women. According to a recent study by Polk, women now make nearly 80 percent of automotive purchase decisions and this award is a clear indication we are delivering on the attributes they seek such as the Santa Fe’s stellar versatility and functionality, class-leading safety, impressive fuel economy and the best warranty in the industry.”
