Call Kelly Shirley About This Great Vehicle at 954-607-0260!

1 OWNER - ONLY 5K MILES - FLORIDA DRIVEN 2013 HYUNDAI SANTA FE SPORT SUV - 5 PASSENGER - POWER OPTIONS PACKAGE - AIR CONDITIONING - CRUISE CONTROL - MUCH MORE!

This SUV is nicely packaged with features including steering wheel controls for the Bluetooth hands free calling, driver information system, cruise control and audio system, AM FM stereo CD player, power windows, locks and mirrors, seat back storage pockets, 12 volt power outlets, air bag safety, rear door child safety locks, durable protective rear cargo area mat and so much more!

This Santa Fe is a Florida driven, Florida maintained vehicle and has never been exposed to the harsh winters, roads, mountains, or overall harsh conditions of up north driving.

Vehicle Overview

Hyundai redesigned the Santa Fe for 2013, splitting its SUV into two variants with separate sizes and styling: this is the two-row, four-cylinder Santa Fe Sport.

Santa Fe Sport
This Santa Fe Sport gets a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder. It slots between the smaller Hyundai Tucson and the larger Santa Fe. Competitors include the Ford Edge and Nissan Murano.

Exterior
The latest car to receive Hyundai's "fluidic sculpture" design, the Santa Fe has a large, vertical grille that looks a bit like the one on a Subaru Tribeca. The tail recalls those on many large SUVs, from the Mazda CX-9 to the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. Dual tailpipes sit within bumper-integrated openings. The Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport share the same platform, but the Sport is about as long as a Ford Edge, and the Santa Fe is 8.5 inches longer. It's about 2 inches longer than the Pilot and 4 inches shorter than the Explorer.

Chrome trim along the grille and door handles is standard, as are body-colored mirrors. Nineteen-inch wheels


Interior
Total passenger volume in the new Santa Fe is 146.6 cubic feet, which is equivalent to the Highlander but falls short of the Pilot and Explorer by more than 7 cubic feet. The adjustable second row includes 40/20/40-split folding sections with releases in the cargo area.

Stain-resistant cloth upholstery is standard. Hyundai says the Santa Fe offers another 1.9 inches of second-row legroom and 5.9 inches of extra cargo room versus its Sport sibling.


Safety
Seven airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system are standard.

2015 Hyundai Sonata gets a shadowy preview

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 03:31:00 EST

It's only been on the market since 2010, but such is the hectic pace of the family sedan world that the Hyundai Sonata finds itself as the elder statesmen of the midsize segment. The current, sixth-generation sedan put the Korean automaker in the hunt with its audacious Fluidic Sculpture styling and bold powertrain choices (it was the first to eschew a six-cylinder option), but time has brought with it tough new competitors from the likes of Ford, Honda, Mazda and others, so it's time for a new model.
Previewed here in this official teaser rendering is an all-new, seventh-generation model, and at first blush, it looks markedly more conservative and refined than its predecessor, with more restrained surfacing and a more traditional six-sided grille. Scheduled for a world premiere in Korea later this month, the Sonata is expected to make its first show circuit appearance at the New York Auto Show in April.
Built atop a platform with significantly more advanced high-strength steel (51 percent vs. 21 percent) and increased use of structural adhesives, the Sonata's bones promise to be both more rigid (by 40 percent) and lighter. Cloaked in Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 bodywork, so far Hyundai isn't saying much about powertrain updates, but it is trumpeting a redesigned interior with a new infotainment interface and redesigned seats.

Hyundai reveals flying car among other wacky concepts [w/video]

Mon, 15 Apr 2013 17:30:00 EST

Hyundai has held an IDEA festival for the past three years that gives its engineers a break from seat belts, and electrical harnesses and wheel arch moldings. Each festival serves up a theme for personal mobility, after that there's no limit - competing teams can come up with anything that serves the theme and are encouraged to get creative.
That's how you get concepts like the E4U 'egg car' (pictured); a single-stander mode of transportation that channels Mork from Ork. The oddest thing about the egg is not the yellow shell but the helmet the 'driver' wears. Other ideas included a flying car with 16 (!) rotors, a bicycle that could serve as a spare tire and a car with five joints. Although most appeared totally impractical, all were totally cool.
This year's festival is in the works, the theme being the rather ambiguous "R&D for customers," the point is apparently to come up with concepts that Hyundai customers might actually use. There's a video with scenes of last year's festival and a press release below (our vote goes to the Pandora).

Hyundai NA CEO Krafcik awarded Automotive Executive of the Year

Mon, 24 Jun 2013 10:57:00 EST

Hyundai North America CEO John Krafcik is this year's Automotive Executive of the Year. DVN Business Assurance presents the award each year, and this year, Robert Djurovic, executive director of the award program, said Krafcik won the nod because he "reshaped the way Hyundai approaches the market with consumer focus, compelling design and enduring value." While speaking at the award ceremony, Krafcik said that he was humbled by the recognition and that he accepted the accolade on behalf of Hyundai team members, dealers and suppliers.
Krafcik joined Hyundai in 2004 as the vice president of product development and took on duties as chief executive in 2008. Since then, the automaker has seen a flurry of new products and a substantial jump in market share. His efforts have also helmed Hyundai to two North American Car of the Year awards in 2009 and 2012 for the Genesis and Elantra, respectively. Krafcik also helped Hyundai navigate through the company's fuel economy debacle that began late last year, in which the automaker admitted it overstated the efficiency ratings of many of its automobiles.
The Automotive Executive of the Year Award has been recognizing industry leaders since 1964. You can read the full press release below for more information.
