"Top Safety Pick" Rating Given to Redesigned 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the new 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a "Top Safety Pick." The IIHS performed several crash tests on the 5-passenger SUV, and the Santa Fe Sport rated "Good" in all four of them.

Achieving "Top Safety Pick" status requires the top rating in a moderate overlap frontal-impact test, side-impact test, rear-impact injury prevention test, and a roof crush strength test designed to determine how well a vehicle will protect occupants in a collision. The testing is conducted at thresholds that exceed federal requirements.

The new Santa Fe Sport is base-priced at $25,275. Buyers choose between a 190-horsepower 4-cylinder engine and a turbocharged 4-cylinder generating 264 horsepower. Add all-wheel drive and all of the extras to a Santa Fe Sport 2.0T and the price tag rises to $37,285.

Early next year, a 7-passenger version of the Santa Fe will arrive in Hyundai showrooms.
