Hyundai has unveiled its all-new 2013 Sante Fe crossover today at the New York International Auto Show, packaging enhanced convenience features as well as new technologies that help to improve efficiency.

Longer, lower and wider than its predecessor, the new Sante Fe builds upon Hyundai’s form language, Fluidic Sculpture. What’s more, the third-generation Santa Fe presents its design rendition called ‘Storm Edge’, creating surface dynamics meant to evoke the strength of nature during the formation of a storm.

Inside, the 2013 Santa Fe’s interior is attractive as it is high tech. Front-row and second-row legroom has been increased by 38mm and 45mm respectively over the outgoing model. Electronically powered adjustable front seats will also be available with a memory function that adapts to the preferred positions of different drivers. An optional 220 Volt power socket also provides additional convenience, providing power to laptops and other devices necessary for your road trip needs.  Located in the trunk, the socket can power equipment rated up to 200 Watts without a specific invertor. Additional electronics fitted to the third-generation Santa Fe include driver aids such as light-detecting and rain-detecting lights and wipers, as well as a clever radar-controlled, adaptive cruise control system.  To help with parking, the new Santa Fe is also fitted with the Smart Parking Assist System, aiding parking challenged drivers.

There are three engine options mated to a six-speed automatic transmission available for the 2013 Sante Fe. Thee 2.4-liter GDI DOHC inline-4 produces 190-hp and 181 lb-ft or torque . The 2.0-liter turbo makes a greater 264-hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the 3.3-liter GDI DOHC makes this most, at 290-hp and 252 lb-ft of torque.

In its most efficient FWD 2.4-liter trim, the Sante Fe is capable of achieving 23 city and 33 highway. The 3.3-liter AWD crossover still attains a respectable 19 mph city and 26 mph highway.

Pricing details haven’t announced yet but expect the Sante Fe to go on sale later this summer.
