The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe has been testing in India since some months now and recently, yet another test mule of the new Santa Fe was spotted testing on public roads of India.
Earlier, It was being said that the Hyundai Santa Fe could be the first new-car launch by the Indian subsidiary of the Korean auto giant. However, the recently unveiled Grand i10 is the first new car launch and it is now being said that the first new car from the carmaker would be the 2014 Hyundai i10.
Speculations have been aplenty that the Santa Fe would come only towards the last quarter of this year.
Internationally, the 2013 Santa Fe is available with an array of engine options that consist of two petrol engines, a 2 Litre turbocharged and a 2.4 Litre naturally aspirated, and a 2.2 litre oil burner. These engines are mated to a 6 speed auto ‘box.
We really can’t stop saying good things about the Hyundai’s Storm Edge design language that features on the new Santa Fe. The Storm Edge is the successor of the Fluidic design language. The styling on the latest Hyundai cars is definitely a far cry from the older Hyundais whose styling can be best described as insipid. The Storm Edge will be soon replaced by Fluidic Precision and the future seems bright for the styling of Hyundai cars.
On the inside, the car boasts of a very eye catchy dashboard design and usage of rich materials. From the looks of it, the interiors of the new car seem to be a pretty cosseting and are loaded with gizmos.
It is now being said that the 2013 Santa Fe would hit Indian market only in late 2013 and would come to us via CKD route.
