Accommodating up to seven passengers thanks to the addition of a third-row seat, the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe XL can give credit to its 215-mm longer wheelbase. As the only Hyundai SUV to come standard with a 3.3L V6 engine, it produces 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque while burning 7.8L/100km on the highway. Maximum towing capacity is rated at 2,268 kilos (5,000 pounds).
The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe XL carries a long list of standard features including 18” alloy wheels, heated front seats, power sliding second-row seats, Bluetooth, and trailer pre-wiring, just to name a few.
In top-of-the-line Limited trim (seating for six), buyers will get a leather interior, HID headlights, a high-resolution TFT display, keyless access with proximity sensor, an Infinity audio system, and much more.
Some of the notable options include a heated steering wheel, a power rear liftgate, and a panoramic sunroof.
The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe XL with extended wheelbase will arrive at Canadian dealerships next month.
