2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Long-Term Road Test

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Quiet Ride

July 29, 2013

Hyundai Santa Fe

Our long-term 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe offers a nicely insulated cabin that keeps most road and wind noise from interfering with your conversations/music/podcasts/singing or whatever you do in your car for entertainment.

You know how you don't always noticed things when they are not annoying. I usually keep the windows up and let the climate control system envelope me while I'm driving. I was stuck in a nasty construction-induced traffic jam when I rolled down the window to briefly give directions to the person in the car next to me. That's when I noticed how noisy it was outside and how serene my ride was.

As traffic freed up and I moved along at a good clip, the quiet remained. No wind noise bouncing over the side mirrors, no bumpy road noise, no growling engine noise. It was peaceful.

How quiet is your ride?
