The words "fully redesigned" constantly get tossed around all willy-nilly, to the point where they've lost the intended snap reaction. Though, when used to describe the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe, it comes up as an understatement. Hyundai replaced its long-running Santa Fe SUV model with two new models for the 2013 model year. The Santa Fe Sport, which still offers two rows of seating for five passengers like its predecessor, and the longer wheelbase (LWB) model. The LWB version adds about four inches of wheelbase and 8.5 inches of overall length to accommodate three rows of seating for up to seven passengers. Both models feature Hyundai's "fluidic sculpture" design, which presents a rounder, gentler profile than the slab-sided cut from the past.

The Santa Fe Sport comes with two engine choices, the base model gets Hyundai's 190 horsepower, 2.4-liter direct-injection four-cylinder, and a 264 horsepower, 2.0-liter turbo four is offered as an option. Both engines are paired with six-speed automatic transmissions, and both are expected to generate improved highway mpg numbers. The LWB Santa Fe is the only midsize CUV (crossover utility vehicle) with a standard direct injection V6 engine. The 3.3-liter GDI V6 engine delivers a hefty 290 horsepower.
