Hyundai Santa Fe 2013 Sport coming to UAE & GCC soon
The long-running Hyundai Santa Fe was overdue for a remake, given how its stablemates have evolved in the last few years. The first of the new Santa Fe variants will be in GCC showrooms by September.
As we’ve reported earlier, the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe now has two variants now, namely a “Sport” model with 5 seats and a longer-wheelbase model with 7 seats.
The model coming to the UAE in September is the Sport version. While it gets two great engines in the United States, such as a direct-injection 2.4-litre and the turbocharged 2.0-litre, it is likely that Saudi, Qatar, UAE and other GCC markets will simply get the regular 178 hp 2.4-litre, as found in the GCC-spec Sonata.
The 7-seater Hyundai Santa Fe will come to the Middle East next year.

doesn’t look so different from the out going model.
It is different from the previous model but not in a good way IMO cuz now it is not that different from the Tucson, the previous model had its own character, now this is very similar to the Tucson but in the same time i think the 7 seater will be different in size and will look better, anyway, lets see how things turn out …. by the way, with the current prices of Hyundai, they really need to consider bringing good engines because their prices are not competitive anymore and they are competing on the power front in the US not on the prices while neglecting this issue here, so if they dont bring in their direct injected engines here soon or replace the engines here with reasonable carefully chosen engines here, they will start going down the hill again
Think they forgot the rear a/c vents .btw the the current 2.4 is underpowered.that said the design looks like better looking current gen cry or did I get it wrong.
i see one near Daira WestZone every day and think its the Sport , gray in color and its look better than Tuscon .. any idea about the price ?
