The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Lands on Ward’s 10 Best Interiors List

The crossover SUV is recognized for its well thought out cabin.
OAK LAWN, Ill. - May 22, 2013 - PRLog -- The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe (, currently available at Happy Hyundai of Oak Lawn, has been honored by Ward’s for its upscale interior. The trusted automotive intelligence source named the crossover’s interior as one of the best around this year. Ward’s recognizes interiors that are recently redesigned or completely new. Last year the automaker had both the 2012 Accent and the 2012 Azera make the list.

The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a well crafted, thoughtfully equipped, comfortable and affordable vehicle. It boasts an upscale look and feel both inside and out that certainly resembles a car priced considerably higher. The high quality materials, stylish modern design, and superior functionality have been especially popular with families, and apparently, Ward’s judges.

The selection process included 46 vehicles this year, and only ten were selected for the best interiors list. During the judging process, judges check a number of criteria. They look at the quality of build, how even stitching is, the use of color and design, how easy it is to get in and out of the seats and doors, head room, leg room, and more. Another factor that is increasingly important is the information technology available. The judges rank the cars to some extent on how well the technology works and how easy it is to use.

The Hyundai Santa Fe ( comes with a number of unique features. YES Essentials® seat fabric is anti-odor, anti-static, and stain resistant. A panoramic sunroof is optional to allow for more natural light. A push button start, electrochromatic gauge cluster, and proximity key are all available features. The Santa Fe Sport even can come with luxury touches like a heated steering wheel, front and rear seats, and sliding second row seating.

"The all-new Santa Fe Sport offers buyers a comfortable, functional and modern-looking interior," said Christopher Chapman, chief designer, Hyundai Design North America. "Designed with families in mind, the interior features quality materials, intuitive controls and a spacious layout for the diverse needs of today's active families."
