Santa Fe Overview
The all-new three-row, six/seven-passenger Santa Fe comes equipped with
Hyundai's Lambda II 3.3-liter GDI V6 engine producing 290 horsepower. The
engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and Santa Fe is tow
rated up to 5,000 pounds. Santa Fe has an EPA estimated 25 mpg highway fuel
economy rating. The "Fluidic Sculpture" design theme is continued with the
three row version and completes the third-generation Santa Fe family. The
two-row, five-passenger Santa Fe Sport was released in the second half of
2012.

The three-row Santa Fe is a progressively designed and highly capable
crossover built for today's family, with flexible space, upscale amenities,
outstanding performance and advanced safety. The Santa Fe features everything
found on the Santa Fe Sport plus additional premium amenities such as power
liftgate and 115V power outlet. The larger Santa Fe also features standard
rear-passenger HVAC controls and vents for additional family comfort. Santa Fe
offers two second row seating configurations; a traditional bench with
40/20/40 split-folding seatback on the GLS and individual second row captain's
chairs on the Limited.

To accommodate the additional third row, the Santa Fe wheelbase is 3.9-inches
longer and the overall length has been extended by 8.5-inches compared to the
Santa Fe Sport. Second-row legroom is increased by 1.9 inches and passenger
volume increases by 38.6 cubic feet versus the Sport. The standard 50:50 split
folding third-row provides 31.5 inches of legroom. In addition to the larger
size, the Santa Fe has distinct exterior styling cues including unique grille
with thinner horizontal grille bars, lower fascia graphics, elongated rear
window treatment, unique rear taillights and wheel designs.

Inside the Santa Fe, customers will appreciate the unique multi-tiered
dashboard design and overall interior craftsmanship which includes color LCD
trip computer, color audio display with rearview camera, panoramic sunroof and
rear side window sunshades. Santa Fe is exceptionally equipped with standard
18-inch alloy wheels, chrome-tipped dual exhaust, family-friendly Yes
Essentials® stain-resistant cloth seats, Bluetooth® hands-free phone system
with Voice Recognition and Blue Link®.

Blue Link® combines safety, service and infotainment features to simplify
owners' lives and reduce distracted driving by seamlessly connecting the
driver directly with the vehicle. Technologies like emergency assistance, POI
searchand download, turn-by-turn navigation, smartphone remote features
(including remote start) and monthly vehicle reporting are available with the
system. Blue Link® can be easily accessed from the buttons on the rearview
mirror, over the internet, or via a smartphone. Blue Link® is offered in three
packages: Assurance, Essentials and Guidance.
