Hyundai Rolls Out Promised Three-Row Santa Fe for LA
30 Novembre 2012 - Autoblog
Hyundai has unveiled the production version of its six- and seven-passenger Santa Fe at the 2012 LA Auto Show.
The new creation will be sold alongside the five-passenger Santa Fe Sport and offers buyers a 3.3-liter direct-injection V6 with 290 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque. Coupled to a six speed automatic transmission, the driveline delivers a 5,000-pound tow rating, and an optional all-wheel-drive system should provide a little extra traction for drivers in snowy climes.
With an extra 3.9 inches of wheelbase over the Santa Fe Sport, the new seven-passenger CUV delivers two inches more leg room in the second row as well as a functional third row of seating. Total cargo volume also swells from 71.5 cubic feet behind the front seats in the Santa Fe Sport to 80.0 cubes in the larger variant. The seven-passenger Santa Fe also serves up 13.5 cubic feet of cargo area behind its third-row seat.
Hyundai estimates the 2013 Santa Fe will deliver 13,06 L/100km and 9,4 L/100km highway in front-wheel-drive configuration.
