2008 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

The 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe. The SUV has been reborn. Rethink -- everything. More power to you. Primed and ready under the hood is the efficient 3.3L Double Overhead Cam V-6 pumps out 242 horsepower and 226 pound feet of torque. Not only is it powerful it meets ULEV emissions classifications making it clean for the environment. The Santa Fe offers SHIFTRONIC. The convenience of an automatic transmission combined with the sporty feel of a race-inspired sequentially shifted manual shift mode. For all your adventures or just added traction when you need it the Santa Fe delivers. The available Borg Warner All Wheel Drive system gives the driver traction at all four corners all the time in all weather and road conditions. Inside pamper yourself with heated leather seats. Bring the whole gang along with the available 3rd row seating and the Homelink Integrated Transceiver will make life just a bit easier. Spacious well appointed Smart. Now that’s an SUV. The 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe.
