Hyundai today announced pricing for the 2013 Santa Fe crossover, which was introduced last fall at the Los Angeles auto show. The Santa Fe starts at $29,195, after an $895 destination charge, and reaches $35,695 for the top-of-the-line model.
All versions of the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe use a 3.3-liter V-6 engine with 290 hp, and a six-speed automatic transmission. The entry model is the Santa Fe GLS front-wheel-drive, which comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, seating for seven, LED taillights, LED running lights, keyless entry, Bluetooth, Hyundai's BlueLink telematics service, satellite radio, and more. Upgrading to the GLS all-wheel-drive bumps the price to $30,945 and includes a windshield de-icing function.
The $950 GLS Popular Equipment package adds roof rails, fog lights, automatic headlights, heated mirrors, heated front seats, a power driver's seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The $4100 GLS Leather and Navigation Equipment package adds a power passenger seat, heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, an eight-inch touchscreen navigation system, a backup camera, an upgraded sound system, and dual-zone climate control.
The next step up for the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe is the $33,945 Limited front-wheel-drive. It builds on the GLS Popular Equipment pack with 19-inch wheels, a power liftgate, push-button start, six-passenger seat with leather on all three rows, a power passenger seat, a 4.3-inch touchscreen audio system, a backup camera, dual-zone climate control, and a 115-volt power outlet. Adding all-wheel-drive pushes the price to $35,695.
The only option package for Santa Fe Limited models is the $2900 Limited Technology package. It includes an eight-inch navigation system, 550-watt Infinity sound system, panoramic sunroof, heated steering wheel, and rear-window sunshades.
Hyundai also offers a smaller, five-passenger crossover called the Santa Fe Sport. Despite the similar names, the two models are very different; the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport starts at $25,275 after destination charges.
