2013 Hyundai Santa Fe and Its Sports Sibling are Ready to Fight – The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe also its sibling, the Santa Fe Sport, finish the Hyundai’s ambitious 7/11 program, to produce 7 all-new or importantly upgraded variants in merely 11 months. We notice the future-generation Santa Fe would be revealed at the New York auto show, but didn’t anticipate the addition of a short-wheelbase, 2-row Santa Fe Sport variant giving an available turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.
The 2 Hyundai Santa Fes don’t potion a single engine specs. The 2013 Santa Fe Sport went for an all 4-cylinder lineup, beginning with a 2.4-liter 190 hp I-4 creating an estimated 181 lb-ft of torque. The alternative power plant is Hyundai’s now familiar 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 that creates 264 hp also 269 lb-ft of torque below the bonnet of the Santa Fe Sport 2.0T. The 8.5-inch longer Santa Fe receives a slightly bigger engine – the 3.3-liter 290-hp V-6 taken straight from the Hyundai Azera. All the 3 engines are mated up to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is regular, while all-wheel drive with torque vectoring is also offered.
The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe fuel economy was a main focal point with the two Hyundai Santa Fes. Though bigger than before, because of the raised employ of lightweight high-tensile steel, the curb weight has fallen but the gas mileage fuel, for the most component, has developed. Hyundai anticipates front-drive Santa Fe Sports fitted with the 2.4-liter I-4 to get 23/33 mpg city/highway, also front-drive turbo variants to earn 23/31 mpg. Hyundai anticipate the V-6-powered Santa Fe to receive 19/26 mpg in the EPA testing. All of the two 2013 Santa Fes arrive standard with Hyundai’s Active ECO scheme.
2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Competitors
The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe pricing hasn’t yet been taken out, but anticipated the 2013 Santa Fe Sport to begin about $25,000, also the 2013 Santa Fe to get a base price next to $30,000. But if you are in the segment for a compact crossover with more power than the Mazda CX-5 or Honda CR-V, both are the main competitors of the Santa Fe; think about adding the Santa Fe Sport to your car list.
