2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited – When we Hyundai Santa Fe tested 2014 Limited in the fall of 2012, we were impressed by the sophistication, technology integration, and the style of the mid-size crossover, and I thought it would be a good alternative for many medium-sized models on the market as the Nissan Murano, Ford Edge and Toyota Venza. It was also just the right size to buyers looking for smaller vehicles such as the Mazda CX-5 visitors and the Ford Escape. For couples, active singles and small families who fit perfectly.
But Hyundai knew it was not right for everyone, especially larger families and grandparents who always want something they can wear around their grandchildren without a chronic hip without van or SUV carry full size hard the rest of the time .
A few cons-intuitive, sports is the replacement for the last two rows of Santa Fe and 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited replaced Veracruz after an absence of one year from the area. Few centimeters in length and wheelbase of his younger brother sport, adds three rows of Santa Fe practical enough to make a strong case for itself. We tested recently redesigned 2014 Kia ??Sorento and were disappointed that not have the opportunity for such an overhaul engineering, Kia, to extend more courtesy to a third series.
The housing 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited third row are significantly more than the Sorento hospitable. Even if I do not go high to qualify, by the occasional need to carry more than four passengers, are in order. Hyundai controls temperature even in the third row for passengers thoughtfully placed as pleasant as possible.
The second and third row of seats can be folded back bed. Folding the third row with a start at the top, while the second row is folded by a tab on the discharge side of the load compartment. However, setting a very long exposure require creativity, because the front passenger seat does not fold.
Also in 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited flexibility in the interior, Hyundai Santa Fe has a total capacity of 5,000 pounds of trailer. This is top of the class parties mid-size crossover Ford Explorer and 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. The package preparation, refrigerators and motor oil contains transmission is standard across the Santa Fe sport not customers want to be trailer able to install your trailer hitch receiver parts or go with a device containing installed by the dealer, which will be available in the time for the Christmas season was in 2014.
On paper, the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited 3.3-liter direct-injection V-6 has plenty of power to 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque, but the torque of the engine is high 5,200 rpm. In comparison, the maximum torque 2.0-liter turbocharged GDI option on Sport 269 pounds-ft and lit only 1750 rpm with a good long flat plateau up to 3000 revolutions per minute.
Therefore, the seat-of-the-pants torque of both engines is no different. The torque on the turbo four peaks earlier and is consistent in the midrange. In contrast, the 3.3 V-6 have revved to things really happen. Fortunately, the power control and the input speed is available. In addition, the six-speed automatic transmission is smooth and fast to slow an expert in the drivers of energy demand forecasts and put the engine in the meat of its power band. From the perspective of the management of heat, naturally aspirated V-6 is probably a better option for the Santa Fe 2.0 turbo would have been, but the difference in the torque curve is a stark contrast. Fortunately, the 3.3 V-6 is not unpleasant sounds in the whip, want, grunt from idle to redline close. We had no time to test the model during his time with us, but a 0-60 medium-high seven-second range for the 8 flat seems likely.
From the B-pillar forward, the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited is a virtual clone of the sport, with the same hexagonal interior design theme and advanced features to the cabin. Looking at the specifications of our test we have seen, “HD Radio” is an option being considered, but the AM stations in the region, we know simulcast HD still sounded confused. When we entered the system configuration with several rows of small icons that welcomes a granular configurability to enable many features of the vehicle. Once the setting., To enable the HD audio setting for AM, FM, and soon we were listening to the crisp HD audio provided by AM
System shall be as for the configuration continues Hyundai, the driver can change the settings “Sport” direction, giving you the opportunity to “Comfort”, “Normal” and. Do not change the steering ratio, only the level of support. As the Kia Sorento has been seen to function as something artificial. Potential buyers can play with it on the test drive and the new owners can treat three settings during the first few weeks of ownership, but probably set it and forget quickly. We have the attitude “comfort”, the above-stimulated and to be normal, very confused and sports a little tighter. We would be happy with one of these two as the default.
About two tons, plus or minus a few pounds for FWD and AWD from six to seven seats on the Santa Fe is no featherweight and is about 300 pounds more than his brother two rows. However, the agile character, easy to drive sports model moves largely intact, which was one of the stated aims of the Engineering team. Compared to the reference class detected Mazda CX-9 in driving dynamics, which is a slight advantage for the Mazda would be in the range of steering precision, but the Santa Fe green light to add a little to feel more light on his feet, probably in large part to his 400 + pound weight advantage over most Mazda.
2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited Price
In value terms, the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited is a good deal for yourself. With many in this class well equipped easy cresting $ 40,000 examples was our example Limited AWD $ 38,730, including destination. The only notable feature is missing in our test model was a driver’s seat with memory.
2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited is a good way to be the volume leader in the crossover segment with three rows of medium size, but there are Hyundai another arrow in their quiver to the center of the target segment and offers a range of modern, value-packaged for buyers of medium size.
