Hyundai has released pricing information for its new five-passenger 2013 Santa Fe Sport, and those the least-expensive way to get your hands on one will cost you $24,450 – but don't forget to add in $825 for destination to any Santa Fe model. For those keeping track, the 2012 Santa Fe starts at $23,225.

Opting for all-wheel drive will bring the sticker to $26,200 if you're willing to stick with the base 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine offering 190 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. Check the box for the 2.0-liter turbo mill and you'll be met with a $27,700 sticker with front-wheel drive or $29,450 with AWD.

Want to pimp your ride with a leather interior with power seats (heated in the front and rear), rear-view camera, navigation screen with eight-inch screen and a panoramic sunroof? Be prepared to add $6,600 to the price of whichever model you've got your heart set on. That means a fully loaded Santa Fe with the turbocharged engine and all-wheel drive will go for over $36,000.

We're still waiting for pricing details on the seven-passenger version of the Santa Fe, but we assume it will run a bit higher than this five-passenger Sport model.

      All the people whining over the price tag must be dumb enough to pay sticker price for a car. It is interesting to see that most Hyundais sell at a modest discount off sticker now while Honda is discounting the hell out of it models or setting aggresively low lease prices to maintain market share. At some point it will catch up with Honda. I am willing to bet you can get a fully loaded Santa Fe if your a good negotiator for around 32k or so after the first few months it is on sale and based on the excellent warranty it will be one of the top models in it's segment.

        Even $32k seems a lot for something like this. That does not strike me like a bargain or even decent deal.

      Will it still hav the same terrible reliability, bloated hp estimates, bloated mpg estimates, and bloated 0-60s as the rest of the Hyundais? I think in real life it has either 145 hp or 200 with the 2.0, gets maybe 15/23 mpg, and has a 0-60 of over 9.5 secs. Hyundai always lies about the specs. Someone really should sue them for lying about their specs. Actually they should be sued for even making cars at all. Lol. Had a 2002 Elantra. My god, what a POS it was. It seems to me that all Hyundais have this problem. I have quite a few friends who have had Hyundai products. Not one is happy and almost all of the cars are complete pieces of **** as well so it's obvious nothing has changed... They are still the cheap crappy unreliable heaps they always were.

        well, it's not as reliable as your Honda Fit, but it does beat anything made by Germans and Americans.

      Price is way to high for the model with options that most people will want. Hell you could start o base model at 19,995 with no air and steel wheels. 30K for a nicely equipped Hyundai is insane, when you can get a real luxury SUV like Q5 for 35K. They better discount the suckers fast.

        Why would Hyundai want to price the larger Santa Fe at the same level as the Tuscon?

        • 2 Years Ago
        @Jojo123
        They have the Tucson for the lower tier. The Q5 @ $35,000 is a BASE model with absolutely no options at all. You can't compare the two.

      I hate to say it, but it's time for the Government to step in and put an end to the kind of crap design that this Hyundai represents from a driver visibility standpoint. Hyundai isn't the only guilty party, certainly the RAV-4, CRV, Escape and numerous other examples exist of the auto manufacturer's designing out rear and side driver's sightlines from their vehicles. If they're going to continue with this crap design trend, then let the NHTSA step in to mandate minimum visibility standards.

          The Camaro has the worst visibility out of any modern, non-convertible I've ever driven. It is atrociously bad.
          AngeloD
          • 2 Years Ago
          @Zoom
          Absolutely the NHTSA should look at the Camaro to see if the styling excess that limits visibility is a safety issue that needs regulation. Hell, BMW and Ford manage to produce a sports car with decent visibility, why can't GM (Camaro) or Hyundai (Genesis Coupe)? If the automakers are going to let styling override common sense and safety (when do they ever not) with regard to visibility, than they are begging for regulation just as they did by building hardtops with little if any roll over protection. They have nobody but themselves to blame.

      Does this car seem a little overpriced? Isn't $36K a little much? I can't compare it to a CR-V because it only has a 4 cylinder engine, but I don't understand paying that much for a Hyundai considering their whole philosophy is offering more car for the money and this doesn't seem like it...
        NightFlight
        • 2 Years Ago
        @telm12345
        For the 100th time, this doesn't directly compete with the CR-V, the Tucson does.

      It's a great car. The Santa Fe was my first car. But Hyundai is (was) about competition. They made it to where they are for offering a lot for a low price. I don't think Hyundai/Kia as a company is ready to switch over to unreasonable pricing like this, tacking on thousands for packaged features. I was so looking forward to a new Santa Fe Sport with AWD and some options, but I certainly can't afford a $36K Hyundai.

        @Andrew Zotos Breslin
        I don't think the pricing is unreasonable when you factor inflation compared to when you bought your original Santa Fe and the increase in equipment this will have compared to the previous generations of the vehicle.

        So you'd be able to afford a $36k any other brand vehicle, just not a $36k Hyundai?

      If it's overpriced for you, then there is a cheaper one in the lineup, it's called Tucson

      While Hyudai/Kia's latest products look nice they've still not sold me on quality. You could get a similarly styled Honda CR-V for the same price or a little less and be guaranteed great reliability.

        You obviously haven't read up on Hyundai or Kia's reliability over the last 4+ years. It's top notch. Just go look at how many Kia's and Hyundai's are top buys/recommended buys/reliability top scores.

          @ Shawn I call BS on your "sisters" story, it doesn't even add up. All of those items you mentioned are covered well after 36K, especially that water pump and alternator. Any manufacturer would cover those items. Paint doesn't just peel off after three weeks either. Not buying it, not just for a Hyundai, but for ANY brand.

          Ummm.....4 years in the auto industry is an eternity Shawn. 4 years ago we all thought the M3 was the pinnacle of sport coupes yet not we have Mustang's out performing them for a fraction of the cost. One of many examples as to how far it's come in 4 years.

          When it comes to buying a performance car I will go for the best pluck for my buck. If I can get a car that at the very least matches the performance of a much more expensive car then I'd go for it. As for the statistics that others were talking about earlier, they aren't lying. Their cars are leaps and bounds better then what they used to be. My sister bought a used 2002 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6 and the only problem she ever had with the car during her 5 years of ownership was the trunk release not working and they replaced it for free. But sorry about your gf's car troubles but some of that sounds a little far fetched, especially paint coming off after 3 weeks. What model year was the Tiburon because almost $25k for one sounds a wee bit on the high side. I was looking at a new 2003 Tiburon GT V6 with the ultra sports package 3 (higher rear spoiler, 6 speed manual) and that was just a hair over $20k and that's their top of the line model.
