2013 Fluidic Santa Fe Brochure leaked; Reveals juicy details
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
You have seen the spyshots, you have seen the concept and you also know about the engine options, but it doesn’t end there. Thanks to our friends at TheKoreanCarBlog, we bring and exclusive insight into the production ready model. The brochure of the upcoming 2013 Santa FE has been leaked on to the web and it reveals some really juicy details.
Let’s start with the best news possible – The 2013 Fluidic Santa FE gets some sizzling hot features which include:
- BlueLink (Sort of like CommandDrive for Mercedes and iDrive for BMW)
- Automatic parking
- Front and rear LED lamps
- Knee airbag
- Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)
There is also a mention of a 2.0-liter 2WD version of the Santa Fe which will dish out 17 km/l. 2.2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder ‘R’ diesel engine rated at 222hp and 500Nm is also officially confirmed now.
The 2012 Fluidic Santa Fe is turning out to be quite a package. This new CUV from Hyundai is expected to debut at the new York Motor Show. Let’s hope Hyundai gets the Fluidic Santa Fe to India as early as possible to threaten the segment leader Toyota Fortuner.
