Nov. 28, 2012 - PRLog -- As the sales team at one of the leading Chicagoland Hyundai dealers ( continues to boast, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is frequently one of the most popular vehicles of the automaker's lineup. It should come as little surprise, then, that the 2013 model is already off to an award-winning start.

The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport was declared to be the “Utility Vehicle of the Show” at the 42nd annual Miami International Auto Show by the Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA). This is not simply a popularity contest either; the panel of judges was composed of industry-leading journalists who specialize in automotive writing.

In an attempt to focus on vehicles that are actually hitting the road, the “Utility Vehicle of the Show” award has replaced the “Concept Vehicle of the Show” award, meaning that this is the very first time the award has ever been given out, earning a place for the Santa Fe Sport in the auto history books.

Drivers familiar with the Santa Fe are likely aware of the many features that led the model to this prestigious pronouncement. The president of SAMA declared that the Santa Fe Sport is “precisely the right size” and carries an optimum array of accessories that modern drivers desire while maintaining an affordable price.

Under the hood, drivers of Hyundai's popular new SUV ( can choose from a 2.4L four-cylinder engine or a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder, with the former offering up 190 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, and the latter bringing 264 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. There is also a 3.3L V6 engine available for even greater power (at 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque).

Interior options such as power accessories, folding rear seating for conversion between cargo and people hauling, and Bluetooth phone connectivity, among others, make it clear that this vehicle has earned the praise granted by SAMA.

The Santa Fe Sport is available now at Family Hyundai, and for more information about it or to take a test drive, readers are encouraged to contact Family Hyundai (, one of the leading auto dealerships in the greater Chicago area. They can also be reached in person at 8101 W 159th St in Tinley Park or by phone at 888-712-7356.
