A Previous Veracruz Owner's Review
By ultcar on

Vehicle

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl 6A)

Review

The media said that the 2013 Santa Fe LWB was a Veracruz replacement, but it is not so in reality. They basically nerfed many of the standard convenience features on the Veracruz LTD, so I expect that Hyundai is developing a true Veracruz replacement in the near future. That said, the 2013 Santa Fe Limited is a refined piece of work in its own right. The chair is very comfortable and adjustable and the technology package makes the car feel connected. I do concede that the design outside and inside are several notches ahead of the Veracruz.

Best Features

Gas mileage (28 mpg on i57 at 75 mph; up to 437 miles on a full tank in ECO mode), the speedometer display, adjustable driver's seat, the smooth but firm ride, navigation that automatically finds a nearby gas station when the gas is low; xm radio never sounded better; Review camera is very wide. The LED eyebrows look cool at night.

Worst Features

The side mirrors need auto dim feature. Rain sensing wipers missing. I still want the beep noise when in reverse. The rear trunk door should open higher. Add a DVD/Bluray player for the passengers, please.

Just wanted to add that the HD radio sounds totally awesome & no subscription required!
