Total Car Score, the automotive research and vehicle comparison website, believes that the automotive industry is poised for a big showing at the New York International Auto Show next week. Hyundai is proud to announce that the 2013 Santa Fe was voted as one of Total Car Score’s five most anticipated SUVs, and the vehicle is now available to Central Florida Hyundai drivers.
More notable than the 2012 edition due to its sleeker design and lighter build, the 2013 Santa Fe comes in two models: the 2013 Santa Fe and the 2013 Santa Fe Sport.
While the Hyundai Santa Fe is one of five impressive new models on the most anticipated SUV list, Karl Brauer, Total Car Score’s editor-in-chief, says there are a number of big reveals to be expected in New York, and it is thanks to the “unleashing of consumer buying power.”
“March auto sales are expected to be the highest since 2007,” said Brauer. “The industry is confronting a marketplace where consumers have passed the ‘must buy’ stage for car owners needing a replacement vehicle. Consumer behavior confirms many new car sales are buyers seeking a vehicle change purely out of aspiration. In other words they want — rather than need — a new car.”
Central Florida Hyundai drivers can look forward to not only one, but two new models of Total Car Score’s most anticipated SUV, the Hyundai Santa Fe in 2013.
The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe is ideal for drivers who could potentially need a more spacious vehicle. It comes with three rows of seating that comfortably seats up to seven passengers and comes equipt with a more powerful V6 engine that boasts 290 horsepower.
On the other hand, the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a much more agile vehicle. It has managed to shed nearly 300-pounds compared to the 2012 model, comes equipt with a direct-injection 2.4-liter four-pot good for 190 horsepower and offers buyers seating for five passengers. In addition, the Santa Fe Sport comes with torque-vectoring cornering control, which Hyundai hopes will set it apart from other affordable crossover vehicles.
Both models exhibit six-speed automatic transmission and either engine is compatible with all-wheel drive. Central Florida Hyundai enthusiasts can take advantage of these two great new models by visiting www.Orlando-Hyundai.com or calling (888) 460-7370 for more information.
