2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Real-World Brake Test
October 10, 2013
The Nissan Versa in front of me on the exit ramp stopped short, and I stood on the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe's brake pedal.
"Yes!" I thought as the SUV immediately responded to my abrupt request to save its front end.
Occasions like this compel me to look up our instrumented testing results as soon as I'm able. I like to know right away, while the experience is fresh in my mind, how the vehicle performed on the test track.
Our rating section says our long-term Santa Fe hauled down from 60-0 mph in 125 feet, which only earned it a "B" or Average rating from our test group.
But for its performance on the Cloverfield Avenue exit ramp this morning, I give it a solid "A."
