The all-new 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is hugely appreciated in Europe, because of its competitive price, high quality materials, and good equipment and nice styling. It appears that the CUV is well received in the US, too.

The Santa Fe Sport was named "Best Compact CUV" during the 2013 Mudfest competition last week in Snoqualmie, Washington. More than 30 NWAPA automotive journalists participated in the event at the 300-plus acre DirtFish Rally School site in Snoqualmie, WA.

The 2013 Best Compact CUV award from NWAPA is one in a list of honors the 2013 Santa Fe Sport has garnered since launching during the fourth quarter of 2012. Santa Fe Sport received the honor of "Best New Crossover" in the Midsize and Large Crossovers category in Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine, was named to this year's Ward's "10 Best Interiors" list for its upscale and highly-functional interior, and was awarded "Crossover of the Year" by the editors of Autobytel.

2013 Santa Fe Sport is priced from $24,450 excluding $825 delivery & handling fee. The standard extras include 6-speed automatic gearbox, 17" alloy wheels, Air Conditioning, 7 airbags, Hill-start Assist Control, Downhill Brake Control, Remote Keyless Entry system with alarm, LED brake and headlight accents, power doors and windows and Bluetooth-enabled 6-speaker audio system.
