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 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/genesis-coupe/2013/?id=32972 The 2013
Hyundai Genesis Coupe is back with a newly redesigned look and upgraded
engine choices. The Genesis Coupe has always been lumped into the muscle
car category with its front engine, rear-wheel drive platform. But the
muscle cars have always held a distinct power advantage until now.
The base engine for the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder. Power is up 30%
from 210 horsepower up to 274 horsepower. An upgraded
dual-scroll turbo, larger Intercooler, and Dual Continuously
Variable Valve Timing help achieve these better power figures. Fuel economy
for the 2.0 liter engine is 21 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway.
The other engine choice is a direct-injected 3.8 liter V-6 which produces
Fuel economy for this engine is expected to be 18 MPG in the city and 28
MPG in the highway. There are two transmission choices available in the
2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe: an 8-Speed automatic or a 6-speed manual.
On the outside the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe retains the same overall
shape but the styling has been changed to reflect the rest of the Hyundai
line-up. Up front the Genesis receives a more aggressive look thanks to an
upgraded hood with two scoops, new front fascia, and larger bumper opening.
Out back the Exhaust gasses exit out
dual asymmetrical chrome pipes. The lights have been upgraded to include
LED daytime running lamps which can be found on high end luxury cars. The
R-Spec and Track editions will receive huge 19-inch alloy wheels.
On the inside the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe features an available 360-watt
Infinity sound system. There are steering wheel controls for the audio
system and the usual iPod, USB, and auxiliary ports. A navigation system
can be purchased as an option that includes a 7-inch touch screen monitor.
The rear seats have been designed with comfort in mind. Instead of stuffing
3 seats in the rear; Hyundai has decided to go with only two. This means
there is a ton of room for the rear occupants.
When the Hyundai Genesis Coupe arrived on the scene a few years ago it was
certainly a respectable car. In fact it was this car and the sedan version
that really gave Hyundai a Boost in
the automotive world. Now with the 2013 model there is more power! The base
model 2.0 liter Hyundai Genesis Coupe starts at $24,250 and the top of the
line 3.8 liter with the track package will retail for about $33,000.

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport AWD on & off-road Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T AWD is a
modern Crossover that most people will never race or take off-road. But
will all-wheel-drive and a turbo-charged

be able to take on some off-road work. In this fun review we decide to find

fast it will go from 0-60 @ a mile above sea level.
2013 KIA Sportage SX vs Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 KIA Sportage SX and the 2013 Hyundai
Santa Fe Sport have a lot in common. They are both 5 passenger Crossovers.
They both have automatic transmissions. They both can have all-wheel-drive.
They both offer an outstanding value for your money. They both are made by
the same parent company and perhaps most importantly they both share
basically the same turbo charged 2.0L
engine. So of course we wanted to know which one is faster from 0-60 MPH at a mile above sea
level. In another fun and interesting TFLcar Mashup review we put both of
these Korean twins to the test to see which one is the sporty car of the
two new crossovers.

The latest Hyundai Santa Fe is a huge step forward from the car it
replaces, both in terms of design and interior quality. However, it comes
with a price to match, stretching Hyundai's reputation for offering value
for money further than any car it has ever released before. The five-year
warranty package remains, as does the powerful 2.2-litre diesel engine, but
the Santa Fe now costs a similar amount to Honda's new CR-V.
