Buyers can choose from three trims when they buy the Hyundai Santa Fe Crossover. The options are the GLS, SE and Limited. The GLS is the base trim while the Limited would be considered the top of the line. Each has its own distinctive features that set it apart, including the engine that it comes with. Those that want a V6 will have to select it as an option on the Limited or purchase the SE.
Even the base GLS comes with a host of standard features. This trim of the Hyundai Santa Fe Crossover includes alloy wheels, privacy glass, rails on the roof, a keyless entry system and mirrors that are heated. Inside the cabin there is cruise control, powered accessories, air conditioning that offers vents in the rear, a driver seat that can be adjusted for height, a steering wheel that tilts and telescopes and a rear seat that splits and folds. The electronic side of the crossover includes Bluetooth, a trip computer and a stereo that has six speakers, CD player, satellite radio, iPod interface and an auxiliary jack.
When moving up to the SE trim on the Hyundai Santa Fe Crossover buyers will instantly see an upgrade in wheel size, the addition of headlights that are automatic and fog lights. There will be a de-icer on the wipers, cross rails on the roof rack and a spoiler on the back. The cabin is decked out with leather and cloth while the driver seat gets powered eight ways. The steering wheel and shift knob are also wrapped in leather and the rearview mirror automatically dims. Adding on the Premium Package throws in a sunroof, camera in the rear, navigation system and a better sound system.
With the Limited trim, buyers of the Hyundai Santa Fe Crossover have the option of the V6 engine as well as some added features. This trim gets an automatic sunroof and climate control. There is also full leather added and heated seats in the front. A power outlet is added inside the vehicle as well. The audio is upgraded to an Infinity surround sound system and it includes ten speakers and a six CD changer. There is an optional navigation package that will throw in the navigation system with touchscreen and a rearview camera.
Safety is obviously a priority with the Hyundai Santa Fe Crossover because there are a host of safety features available. These include the standard antilock brakes, traction control, stability control and front side and side curtain airbags. In addition to these buyers will get a hill descent brake control feature and can also opt for a rearview camera.
The choice of whether or not to buy a Hyundai Santa Fe Crossover will come down to personal preference. Those who simply want a good crossover that is comfortable, spacious, able to haul quite a bit and affordable will find that the Santa Fe is ideal. On the other hand, those that want a car that will make people stop and stare will be disappointed in what the Santa Fe has to offer. There are far flashier crossovers on the market if style is the main concern, but given the low price and capabilities of the Santa Fe it is definitely a good bet for many.
