When you choose the best family crossover in America, it’s all about character.
When summer arrives, America hits the road in a three-row family crossover. We do, too.
The CX-9 has an attractive exterior, useful packaging, and a friendly driving experience.
i like hyundai santafe 2013, because model fashion young,
Love the Mazda it's not trying to be something's it's not . Nice elegant design and although one of the oldest model here in terms of drive train and power train , it still runs with the best of them
The Passport and Mazda CX-9 are old designs, but I see plenty of them, and there's a reason. My opinion why this is, the buying public don't like seats that rattle, suspensions that clunk, transmissions that are slow. The comments in the comments section, are true in my opinion. The CD drivers were biased to the Hyundai, and Nissan. Even though they are new, doesn't make them a better vehicle. Both the Honda, and Mazda are great driving vehicles, making them attractive. The Pilot especially, people love for the traditional values of body on frame vehicles. The Mazda, for being voted the best for years in this segment. Both the Hyundai, and Nissan, are vehicles, waiting to be kicked to the curb, when Honda, and Mazda give the public there new versions of the family crossovers.
The Santa Fe for 2013 is by far superior in styling and interior design this year. Comparing to the Mazda, anyone that has drove both 90% of the time would prefer the Santa Fe. This is Hyundai's first major overhaul to the vehicle from the ground up since 2007 so you would expect it to be better. Is it the nicest crossover on the market, maybe not but for the money its definitively worth a drive. It comes with a standard 10yr 100,000 mile warranty, 5 years roadside assistance Plus 3 years of free Telematics System ( which no one offers that long for free )
64% of People that buy a Hyundai buy another, which is the highest customer retention in the business. Not to mention the fact The Santa Fe on avg is $2800 cheaper then the competition.
On a side note I sell Hyundai's for a living, but we carry every SUV on the market and I drive the competition on a daily basis. Go drive the New Santa Fe, and compare for yourself, I guarantee it will surprise you :)
Also on the Interior dimensions, math is math ( The Santa Fe is bigger)
This is the first year the the Santa Fe actually comes in a long wheel base design for the 3rd row seat. Most manufactures in the crossover segment just add a 3rd row option sacrificing cargo space in lieu of seating whereas the Santa Fe has added a LWB version.
This is a joke right? I have sat in the back of the new Sante Fe and CX9..They are the same damn size..windows and all. And by the way there are cup holders back there..
@blkphire I own a 2011 CX-9 and there is nothing "black hole" like about the interior. blkphire is correct with his comment, there are TWO cup holders in the third row area. If these editor's would have bothered turning their damn heads whilst fabricating bland comments to boost the Santa Fe they actually would have found them. Besides, the third row isn't intended for anyone over 5'8" so a little assigned seating comes into play when hauling all the other dumb editors around from tallest in the front to short in the rear.
