Vehicle Review: 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited FWD

I was able to test drive the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited FWD for a week. I drove around the Southern California area and even took the vehicle to visit the Hyundai office. Here are my thoughts on this fantastic family vehicle!
The first thing I did was head to Disneyland (of course) as it was the start of the Rock Your Disney Side 24 Hour Party! The Santa Fe looks excited to be here! Plenty of room inside to take everyone with me!
And they didn't forget the dad's that get to drive this awesome family vehicle! Check out the rims! Large 19-inch alloys!
The beautiful HID Xenon headlights provide a ton of light at night and look sleek and futuristic.
Have to love the Hyundai logo!
The large side mirrors with turn signals.
My favorite feature is spreading everywhere! The blind-side detection system is one that needs to be on all vehicles! I'm so happy that this an included feature!
The cockpit is stylish and roomy! All of your controls are easily within reach!
The gauges are bright even in direct sunlight!
Large driver side and front passenger mirrors on the sun visors are very much welcomed!
The navigation system features a large 8-inch touchscreen is perfectly sized for all of your navigational and entertainment needs. The 550-watt Infinity Logic7 Surround System is powerful for all of your audio needs!
Easy to reach controls in the center console! The 6-Speed Automatic Transmission is smooth. The powerful V6 engine supplies 290 horsepower and the Santa Fe moves easily through Los Angeles traffic! You will never have to worry about power! The Santa Fe averages 21 MPG. You average 18 MPG in the city and 25 MGP on the highway!
Several power ports are available for you in the center console as well!
The air vents for the second row of passengers.
Here is another one of my favorite features. Here is the regular tinted rear window. But see what it built-in below!
That's right built-in sunshades for the windows. Perfect for your little ones!
The air control system for your passengers in the third row!
The beautiful Santa Fe name!
Ample trunk space and you can have more space with the third row fold down seats!
Lift up the trunk floor cover for more storage space as well as a place for the tire jack!
In the trunk area is this set of outlets which is perfect for tailgating! I especially love the regular outlet plug for a boombox (I just dated myself here) or whatever you may want to plug in!
And my absolute favorite feature of the Santa Fe is the awesome panoramic sunroof! Here are the easy to use controls!
I took the Santa Fe out to the airport to watch the planes fly overhead! Here is a small private plane coming in for a landing!
Here is a larger jet flying directly overhead! So cool to watch planes land overhead without having to be outside! You get to enjoy the comfort of the Santa Fe and stretch out and watch the planes overhead. I can imagine taking this to watch the stars or even just the rain fall!
The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the vehicle I test drove was $33,800.00 but throw in the Limited Technology package (19-inch alloy wheels and tires, HID Xenon headlights, LED tailights, panoramic sunroof, rear parking assistance system, heated steering wheel, driver's integrated memory seat, ventilated front seats, heated second row seats, navigation system with 8-inch touchscreen, Infinity Logic7 surround sound system, premium door sill plates, 115-volt outlet, and carpeted floor mats) brings the price to $39,675.00.

The Hyundai Santa Fe Limited FWD is a fantastic family vehicle that provides amazing comfort, safety features and power while looking stylish to take anywhere.
