2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Priced from $24,450

Earlier this year at the New York International Auto Show, Hyundai unveiled its 2013 Santa Fe crossover that seats seven while getting respectable fuel figures.

But those who only need seating for five now have the option to get their hands on the Santa Fe Sport, which will start from $24,450 excluding an $825 delivery and handling fee. The smaller crossover can be had with either a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder with 190-hp in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, or a 2.0-liter, turbo-four with 264-hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0T model starts at $27,700.

All models are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the all-wheel drive option is available for $1,750 more. Estimated fuel figures for the 2.4-liter is 23-mpg city, 33-mpg highway, while the 2.0T gets 22-mpg city, 31-mpg highway.

Standard on the 2.4-liter model are 17-inch wheels, Hill-Start Assist Control, Downhill Brake Control, front, side, curtain and driver’s airbags, LED brake and headlight accents, remote keyless entry system with alarm, power windows and doors, A/C, and a six-speaker audio system with Bluetooth.

Those who opt for the more expensive and performance-oriented 2.0T get themselves 19-inch wheels, push-button start, electroluminescent gauge cluster with color LCD trip computer, and chrome exhaust tips.
