The online publication CultureMap recently announced the winners of their second annual Auto Awards and they couldn’t find anything bad to say about the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe, naming it the 2014 Crossover Utility Vehicle of the Year.
This generation of Santa Fe is a bigger, “full size Santa Fe”, with three rows of seating, a spacious and airy interior that at 160.0 cubic-feet is one of the largest interior volumes in class. The spacious crossover stands apart from the rest with its handsome styling, inside and out, successfully bridging the gap between bland economy movers and luxury options without giving up too much.
The available panoramic power glass roof gives passengers a terrific view of the world outside. Special features such as proximity smart key access, Hyundai blueLink telematics, heated and cooled leather seats in four colors and a choice of a 40/20/40 split-folding bench seat or captain’s chairs for the second row seating really turn the heads of the experts. Even base models come well equipped with heated cloth seats trimmed in innovative YES Essentials, stain-resistant, anti-static fabric, color audio display and rearview camera.
Also new is a standard 3.3L V-6 engine with direct fuel injection that delivers a class-leading 290 horsepower and is mated to a smooth shifting 6-speed automatic and at 400 pounds lighter than competitors, the Santa Fe drives more nimbly with less heft to shift about.
