Hyundai just announced pricing for its 2013 Santa Fe, which climbs considerably in price compared to the 2012 Santa Fe, but that’s not the whole story.
That’s because this is a seven-passenger vehicle rather than the five-seat Santa Fe. The new Santa Fe replaces the Veracruz in Hyundai’s lineup, and stacked next to the larger vehicle the larger Santa Fe is reasonably priced.
“The Santa Fe features seven airbags, Hyundai Blue Link, 18-in. wheels, more horsepower and better fuel economy than the outgoing Veracruz at the same price. The Santa Fe lineup of 5, 6 and 7 passenger CUVs offers something for everyone in the crossover segment,” Hyundai North America CEO John Krafcik said.
Look for the range-topping Santa Fe limited comes equipped with the same 3.3-liter V6, but climbs in terms of equipment to $35,695 including delivery on the all-wheel drive model.
That engine offers 290 hp and the standard towing capacity will be 5,000 lbs. Hyundai is making a big push to sell the new SUV, featuring it alongside psychedelic rockers the Flaming Lips in a Superbowl ad you can watch below.
