THE ONLY THING MISSING: AN ENOURMOUS PRICE TAG
One-touch power tilt-and-slide sunroof with sliding sunshade, dual front automatic temperature control, navigation and an audio system decked out with XM® Satellite Radio, iPod/USB and auxiliary input jacks. Plenty of luxury, at a price that makes sense. Folding side mirrors, available sunroof, stylish roof rack side rails, available bodycolor rear spoiler and concealed exhaust pipes are just a few of the design features that set Santa Fe apart in this crowded CUV segment.
STEP ON THE GAS WITHOUT WASTING IT
Available V6 horsepower, sure handling in the corners and a smoother ride make Santa Fe easy to drive and comfortable to live with. A beefed-up chassis helps manage higher loads and forces you might face when venturing off pavement or while towing a trailer. Choose from the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder or 3.5-liter V6 engine. Vibration-reducing measures ensure either engine remains remarkably refined at high speeds or when accelerating briskly. And both feature a Variable Intake System and Continuously Variable Valve Timing on the intake camshafts. Translation: more response and efficiency over a broader range of engine speeds. Santa Fe models come equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®. Performance minded drivers will appreciate the option to switch gears manually when driving on inclines, winding roads or when preparing to pass
Though Santa Fe has more passenger volume than the RAV4 and CX-7, it’s not always how much cargo space you have, but what you do with it. Inside you’ll find plenty of cubbies for storing smaller items, additional storage under the cargo floor. Within LIMITED V6 models there is a two-prong 115-volt outlet that’ll power standard household appliances like laptops and radios.
