2013 Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe LWB

Hyundai surprised many by the announcement of two distinct configurations of the Santa Fe midsize crossover for 2013. It will be offered in a standard-length version, powered by either a 2.4-liter 190 hp naturally-aspirated four-cylinder, or an optional 2.0-liter 264 hp turbo four-cylinder. Both models get more than 30 mpg on the highway.

The long-wheelbase Santa Fe comes standard with a 290 hp 3.3-liter direct-injection V-6 shared with the new Azera. The introduction of the long-wheelbase model also signals the end of the road for the slow-selling Veracruz crossover.

All models are several hundred pounds lighter than their predecessors, and lighter than many competitive models.
