Each year U.S News and World Reports highlights vehicles that professional car critics love and are also great values. This year the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe was named Best 3-Row Midsize SUV by U.S. News and World Report in its 2013 Best Cars for the Money Awards.
The awards combine the average price paid and five-year total cost of ownership data from TrueCar.com with the U.S. News Best Car rankings data. This data is based on the opinion of the automotive press about a car’s performance, interior features and interior comfort, as well as reliability data from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
Jamie Deaton, U.S. News & World Report, says:
“The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe wins praise from the automotive press for its long list of standard features, upscale cabin and easy-to-live-with performance. When you combine that with excellent safety ratings and low ownership costs, the Santa Fe provides a combination of value and ownership experience that’s tough to beat.”
With the list of Hyundai’s accolades growing, it is easy to see why Hyundai is difficult for people to pass up. The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe’s third-row seating, standard V6 powertrain, upscale amenities, and advanced safety make it a midsize SUV worth having.
