The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe makes its New York debut

Posted by on 07 Apr 2012 under New Car Launches, Santa Fe

The long awaited 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe was unveiled earlier this month at the New York Auto Show. Much to everyone’s surprise Hyundai didn’t introduce just one but two new models, a two-row and three-row version of the Santa Fe.

Hyundai Santa Fe 2013 Models

Hyundai has launched not 1 but 2 new versions of its Santa Fe Range in New York.

The 5-seater Santa Fe Sport is expected to offer a choice of two powertrains, a direct injection 2.4L and turbocharged 2.0L derivative. The larger 7-seater Santa Fe sports a longer wheelbase to make room for an extra row of seats and will be driven by a more powerful 3.3L direct injection V6 engine. All three engines will be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, while all-wheel drive will also be an option on all.

While the Santa Fe Sport is expected to be a strong crossover contender, the LWB Santa Fe offers a very spacious cabin that should make it a popular option for expanding families.

Hyundai Hexa Concept

Hyundai shows us the future...

Hyundai’s eight-passenger Hexa Space Concept recently made its debut at the New Delhi Auto Show. What sets this MPV apart is its innovative hexagonal seating, designed to optimise the vehicle’s interior space. Each chair fits perfectly into a honeycomb matrix allowing three passengers a side to sit comfortably across from one another. And for increased cargo room, the seats can be folded flat.

On the outside the Hexa Space Concept echoes Hyundai’s fluidic sculpture design language with an imposing front grille as well as bold headlight and large LED taillight displays. Under the hood hides a 1.2L turbocharged engine paired with 6-speed auto transmission.

At present, Hyundai has no plans to go into production with this concept vehicle. However, a similar MPV-style creation might be on the cards in the future.
