The 2013 Hyundai Sonata and 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe are earning even more consumer confidence, as reflected by the “Best Bets” awards from respected consumer car buyer guide, The Car Book
. Both of these models are on sale now for Indiana drivers at Shaffer Hyundai in Merrillville (http://www.shafferhyundai.com/new-and-used-vehicles-Merri...
This is the third year in a row that the Hyundai Sonata has been designated with a “Best Bet” award from The Car Book
. This award-winning mid-size sedan is looking to build upon a big year in 2012 year when it was awarded a Drivers’ Choice Award for “Best Family Sedan” by Motor Week
, a 2012 Total Cost of Ownership Award, and a “10 Best Sedans Under $25,000” distinction by Kelley Blue Book.
Starting at an MSRP of $20,995, the 2013 Hyundai Sonata (http://www.shafferhyundai.com/2013-hyundai-sonata
) is available in 5 different trim options, giving consumers a range of options to consider. The base model comes standard with a powerful and fuel-efficient 2.4L inline-4 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission that gets a commanding 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque while achieving up to an estimated 35 mpg highway and 24 mpg city. Drivers looking for an even more spirited ride can opt for the 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 for 264 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. Inside the cabin, the base model comes generously equipped with a range of standard features, including steering wheel mounted audio and cruise control, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, XM satellite radio, an MP3 player, iPod integration, Bluetooth, and more.
The Hyundai Santa Fe (http://www.shafferhyundai.com/2013-Hyundai-Santa-Fe
) comes completely redesigned for 2013, making it one of the most competitive options in the popular crossover SUV segment. Standard with the same 2.4L inline-4 that is in the Sonata, the Santa Fe manages to get up to 29 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg in the city — economical numbers for an SUV. The Santa Fe is also available with the 2.0L turbocharged engine, as well as a hefty 3.3L V6 that produces 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. The spacious cabin of the Santa Fe can hold up to 7 passengers and includes 35.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row of seats. When folded, the lowered second row of seats frees up even more space for 71.5 cubic feet of cargo space. Like the Sonata, the 2013 Santa Fe is competitively equipped with a long list of modern technologies and features.
