The crossover Sante Fe Sport is redesigned for 2013. It boasts rear seats that are split into three sections, each able to fold down for clever use of space.
Standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, power accessories, Bluetooth technology, a six-speaker audio system and the Hyundai Blue Link telematics system, which can help drivers find a gas station, learn about mechanical issues or call for help.
The vehicle is a 2013 IIHS Top Safety Pick, with features that include dual front side-mounted air bags, child seat anchors and emergency braking assist.
Road warriors can also appreciate Hyundai's powertrain warranty, which covers up to 10 years or 100,000 miles. In addition, Hyundai has a basic warranty to cover items such as brake pads and linings, belts, and radio and audio systems for five years or 60,000 miles.
Hyundai owners who need a battery jump-start, flat-tire change, lock-out assistance or towing services while traveling are also covered under a five-year, unlimited mile, 24-hour roadside assistance program.
