2013 Hyundai Santa Fe officially launched in UAE
Hyundai have officially launched the fully-redesigned 2013 Santa Fe in the UAE. While elsewhere, there are two variants – a 5-seater “Sport” model and a 7-seater long-wheelbase model — we here in the GCC are uniquely getting the smaller “Sport” variant this year first. Except that it won’t be called “Sport”, and they’ve actually stuffed seven seats into it too.
The Sante Fe comes here with the option of 2 engines – a 4-cylinder 2.4-litre producing 174 hp and 227 Nm of torque, and a V6 3.3-litre producing 266 hp and 318 Nm of torque. Two-wheel drive is standard in the base model, while four-wheel-drive is standard in all the higher models.
Feature-wise, the 2013 Sante Fe gets aplenty, with options such as panoramic sunroof, ventilated seats with heating and cooling, 8-inch screen, leather seats, start-stop engine button and automatic lights.
As many of you had noticed, the 2013 Hyundai Sante Fe has already hit the showrooms in the UAE and will probably do so in Saudi Arabia, Oman and other GCC countries in the coming days. Prices starts at Dhs 82,900 for the base 2.4-litre 2WD model and top out at Dhs 122,900 for the top 3.3-litre 4WD model, with several all-wheel-drive trim levels in between.
