2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/hyundai/santa-fe/?id=32972 The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe is a brand new redesign that makes this the 3rd generation automobile. It's hard to believe that the Santa Fe came out back in 1998. Back then there were not many crossovers on the market yet. Now that practically every automobile manufacturer has a crossover, Hyundai is playing it smart. They have gotten rid of the Veracruz model and then Hyundai has created a long wheel base and a short wheel base Santa Fe. Prices start at $24,450.
There are 2 different engine options available on the 2013 Santa Fe Sport. The first is a direct injected 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 190 horsepower and 181 lb-ft. of torque. The second engine is a 2.0 liter turbocharged and gasoline direct injected motor that makes 264 horsepower and 269 lb-ft. of torque. The standard transmission is a 6-speed automatic. Fuel economy is 31 MPG combined for the turbo and 33 MPG combined for the naturally aspirated engine.
On the inside the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a great 8-inch Navigation as an option. The panoramic sunroof is ultra cool and lets rear passengers enjoy the fresh air and sunlight. The Santa Fe Sport comes standard with many great features like cruise control, power windows and locks, Bluetooth, and steering wheel mounted audio controls to name a few. Safety wise the Santa Fe comes with 7 airbags, stability control, traction control, and anti-lock brakes. These items are all standard on the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.
Many improvements have been made and maybe the most important is the reduction in weight. The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe weighs 266 lbs. less than the previous model. That weight reduction has a positive effect on fuel economy. The Santa Fe Sport can carry up to 5 people. The rear seat is a 40/20/40 split bench making for a versatile crossover SUV. You can order the Santa Fe in either FWD or AWD configurations.
The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is priced right alongside its competition. But with the Santa Fe you get more standard features for your money along with a great 10 year 100k mile warranty.

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Test Drive & SUV Video Review
The Hyundai Santa Fe has been totally redesigned for the 2013 model year.
There are now two distinct wheelbases being offered: a short wheelbase
called the Sport and a long wheel base that adds a third row of seating.
The extended version features a few different design elements as it
replaces the Veracruz in Hyundai's line-up. If you are trying to decide
between the Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Sport; here are some numbers that
might help you with your decision. The smaller Sport carries 5 passengers
while the larger model can seat up to 7. The longer wheelbase adds 8.5
inches to the overall length, there is 4 more inches at the wheelbase, and
has almost 39 more cubic feet of interior room.
See Details on the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe
The Santa Fe is a vehicle that is very important to Hyundai because in the
90's when the company was struggling, the Santa Fe kept the brand going.
Now this third generation SUV is bigger, better, and more powerful than
ever. The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe has 3 different trims. The first is the 5
passenger Sport model which comes with 2 different engine choices. The
second is the Santa Fe Limited which seats 6 passengers thanks the
Captain's Chairs in the second row. The third trim is the GLS which is
essentially the entry level model but has seating for 7 passengers.
Another distinction that is made between the Santa Fe and the Santa Fe
Sport is what lives under the hood. The long wheel base models can be had
with a 3.3 liter GDi V-6 engine that produces 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft. of
torque. Hyundai also lightened the larger Santa Fe by 330 lbs. giving this
crossover SUV the best power to weight ratio in the segment. Fuel economy
is 18 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway. The transmission is a
From an appearance standpoint the Santa Fe has a nice fresh modern look
with a big bold grille, massive headlights, and streamlined look which is
pretty unique for a crossover. Power lift gates are very important for
buyers in this segment. If you want an automatic lift gate you will have to
opt for the Limited model.
Driving dynamics are excellent. The driver sits high up in the vehicle
offering great visibility. The steering is as true as it gets for a
crossover. Overall you are going to have a great ownership experience when
you set up to the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe.

2013 BMW M6 Coupe Luxury Sports Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/bmw/m6/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 BMW M6 is a Gran
Coupe that performs like a sports car. You get the best of both worlds:
luxury features and sports car performance. Buying a 2013 BMW M6 gets you
instant credibility adding to your status as a high end automobile
consumer. This new M6 has been redesigned and receives a new engine. Not
only does the M6 coupe look incredible, it has the power to put a smile on
your face. The 2013 BMW M6 has a base price of $106,100.
The engine that powers the BMW M6 coupe is the same fire breathing monster
that lives in the M5. This 4.4 liter V-8 engine is downsized compared to
the outgoing model but the power has been increased due to the addition of
twin turbochargers. The 2013 BMW M6
coupe now puts out 560 horsepower and 50 lb-ft. of
torque. Expect 0-60 MPH times to be in the low 4 second range. When
equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission, the M6 coupe gets 15 MPG in
the city and 22 MPG on the highway. These figures are made possible by the
Auto Star-Stop function which shuts down the engine during times when the
car is at idle.
This new M6 has a couple of really trick features and components. The roof
is made from carbon fiber in order to shave a few extra lbs. from the total
curb weight. High performance ceramic brakes are available as an option.
This $8500 option is a must for those looking to take their M6 out on the
track ever so often. The standard wheels are 19-inch units but you can
upgrade to 20-inch alloy wheels for $1300 more. A few other packages that
are available include an Entertainment Package, Night Vision, Driver
Assistance Package, and an Executive Package.
The 2013 BMW M6 is a luxury sport coupe that is at the top of the
automotive heap. This car offers tons of luxury, technology, and most
importantly: performance. With a cost of just over $100k, the M6 is truly a
high end ride worthy of praise.
