2012 Hyundai Santa Fe
2012 Hyundai Santa Fe
The Santa Fe was rejuvenated in 2010 with a new focus on fuel economy. To that end, the base model features a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that provides improvements in both fuel economy and acceleration versus the old base 2.7-liter V-6. The Santa Fe's top-of-the-line engine also changed at that time -- the 3.3-liter V-6 was replaced by a more powerful, less thirsty 3.5-liter V-6. For 2012, the manual-transmission GLS model has been dropped (very few were actually sold, and it didn't exactly transform the Santa Fe into a sports car anyway), so the base price has gone up by about $1500 this year. All models now utilize a six-speed automatic gearbox. Recent updates aside, the Santa Fe is priced more attractively than most of its competition, and stability control, six air bags, heated power mirrors, cruise control, a CD/MP3 six-speaker stereo, and Bluetooth phone connectivity with steering-wheel controls are all standard equipment. The midlevel SE model comes only with the V-6, but the bookends of the Santa Fe lineup, the GLS and the Limited, are both available with four-cylinder or V-6 power. All-wheel drive is available on any trim level with any engine, with the exception of the four-cylinder Limited, which is sold only with front-wheel drive. A sunroof, heated front seats, leather upholstery, a backup camera, and navigation with XM NavTraffic also are available. Driving the Santa Fe is no dynamic revelation, but the vehicle is very competitive in its class.
2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Profile Leaked
Just last week Hyundai teased the 2013 Santa Fe to build up some buzz before the crossover's New York auto show debut. Today a couple details on the all-new Santa Fe leaked when The Korean Car Blog got its hands on a couple shots of the official 2013 Santa Fe's Korean-language brochure.

Uncamouflaged images of the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe have finally hit the web, thanks to the Hyundai Blog. These two snap shots of the 2013 Santa Fe give us our first preview of what we can expect from Hyundai when the new Santa Fe debuts at the New York International Auto Show in April.

Hyundai has let the cat out of the bag and has confirmed that the all-new 2013 Santa Fe crossover will show its face at the New York International Auto Show in April.
Hyundai Santa Fe Spy Photo
Our colleagues at Motor Trend snapped this photo of a mystery crossover testing on the streets of New York City. Although the thick camouflage hides much of the car’s bodywork, we believe the vehicle seen here is a new version of the Hyundai Santa Fe. The length of the vehicle seen here betrays the fact that it is likely a three-row crossover. Moreover, the three-bar chrome grille that peeks out from beneath the camo looks strikingly similar to the grilles seen on the Hyundai Genesis and Sonata. And we wouldn’t be at all surprised that Hyundai is planning a new version of the Santa Fe, given that the current generation was introduced in mid-2006 for model-year 2007. Back in September we spotted a heavily disguised Hyundai Santa Fe towing a trailer in Europe. Previous rumblings have suggested that a new version of the crossover would most likely go on sale by the end of 2012, with its official unveil coming as early as the Los Angeles or Detroit auto show. Head over to Motor Trend to set out the full set of spy photos. Source: Motor Trend
