      hey, tom, you are joking, right? santa fe is a styling rip off of SUBARU FORESTER????? please let us know how it is so, i think we are all dying to know that.
      • 9 Years Ago
      wow, cool news!

      Here's my 2 cents: I first came across this new Sanata Fe at the 06 Chicago Auto Show. It is the real deal, I instantly fell in love with it and have been eagerly waiting for it to arrive in the dealerships. Pound for pound it is the most SUV for your dollar, a similarly equipped Nissan Murano will cost you easy 6-7K more. I am 6'5" 250lbs and I fit it comfortably, not to mention it comes stock with a great warranty. I'm going to give Hyundai a chance, the local dealer has a few coming in this week so I'll give you guys an update on price and performance later on after I've driven it for a few months etc........

      Suburu...NO! I might think a Toureg and FX but Forrester? Hyundai has no intentions of borrowing any styling cues from Suburu whatsoever!

      Bilbon, hate to ruin your parade, but the 600wt stereo is an option and you're still limited to FWD for that price. A fully loaded top-of-the-line Sante Fe would be north of the $30k mark for sure.

      I think one of the problems Hyundai is having with rebates is that no one seems to want their bottom-of-the-line models. And no one wants to spend too much on a Hyundai in general, so it's kind of a conundrum. I recently went shopping for a Sonata, but the cloth interior was such a turn off. Unfortunately, you can only get the leather in their top LX trim. I saw ZERO LX models in the lot. Even the showcase model was a GLS. It looked like they were practically trying to give away their other trims (about 25 total), none of which has leather.

      I like the Hyundai line-up. This car is a styling rip-off from the 2006 Subaru Forester, so much so I had to look twice to make sure the wrong picture wasn't posted! Sad when you try so hard, and you have no personality of your own, like teenagers all dressing alike to be accepted by their peers. I'm sure the selling price will undercut Subaru and win them sales as a cheaper Forester. Too bad, because Hyundai needs to stand on it's own, apart from the Japs.

      This Hyundai model is awesome. When it comes out its gonna increase the Hyundai sales like the 06 Sonata did and the Azera. Hyundai started to sell 07 Santa Fe in Europe. Becaue im Turkish I read on a Turkish web site that Hyundai Santa Fe 07 sold out in Turkey very popular vehicle and people got in line waiting for their santa fe there is a list reaching august

      Wow, I actually like it. Hyundai is making some huge strides, I can't wait to see what the next generation of their cars are going to be like.

      I would suggest a Hyundai all day over an over in flated priced quick deprecation poor quality built American vehicles. Now you know why all the American car companies are going over seas to get a new work force that's cheap and also dependable. Sucks for all of us guess we will have come up with something new.

      A loaded Santa Fe for around $25K with 600 watt sound system, the Sonata's 3.3, leather and heated seats, DVD, rain sensing wipers, triple zone climate control and ESC, ABS, Traction and 6 airbags and the size of a Ford Explorer/Honda Pilot? Looks like a deal!

      Kudos for Hyundai offering a manual tranny in the Santa Fe, they may of done it to bring in a lower base price, but there are very few Midsize SUV's that offer one, so it should bring in a few folks that wouldn't of considered a Santa Fe before. It appears that even the base model is pretty nicely packaged. I'm sure I'll see as many of these as I've seen of the new Sonota driving around.

      This is a great looking truck, packed with features and priced very well...the Japanese and Yanks must seriously be looking over their shoulders with every new Hyundai/Kia released.
