The South Korean based automaker Hyundai has officially presented to the public, during the 2012 New York Auto Show, the all-new Santa Fe Sport and the long wheelbase version of the model.
According to the car manufacturer, the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe long wheelbase is offering more leg room, a larger cabin and an extra row of seats in the back. Hyundai says that the Santa Fe LWB is 4,905 mm long (192 in), 1,690 mm tall (66,5 in) and 1,885 mm wide (74 in), with a wheelbase of 2,800 mm (110,2 in). The all-new Hyundai Santa Fe long wheelbase will be powered, in the top of the line version, by the same engine as the Azera, the 3.3 liter V6 unit, which is developing 390 HP, being just perfect to tow boats to the seaside.
Besides the long wheelbase Santa Fe, the company has also introduced the regular version, during the same 2012 New York Auto Show, which will be known as the Santa Fe Sport. The five-seater is more compact than its longer brother and it has 4,690 mm in length (84,6 in), 1,680 mm in height (66,1 in) and 1,880 mm in width (74 in), while riding on a 2,700 mm (106,3 in) wheelbase. Hyundai says that the five-seater is available with a choice of two engines, the 3.4 liter GDI, which is generating 190 HP and 181 lb-ft of torque (245 Nm) and the 2.0 liter T-GDI turbo, with 264 HP and 269 lb-ft of torque (364 Nm). The European version of the Hyundai Santa Fe will make its debut in September, at the Paris Motor Show.
