The Hyundai Santa Fe is a mid-size crossover SUV produced by Hyundai and first introduced in 2001. It is one of Hyundai’s most popular vehicles; when first introduced, the company had a difficult time meeting consumer demand, which far outstripped expected sales; it was the vehicle that brought Hyundai to the limelight in the United States. Currently in its third generation, the Santa Fe comes in two different variants; a short-wheelbase version, known as the Santa Fe Sport, and the long-wheelbase version which is covered in this article. In 2008 the Santa Fe was named as one of the top ten vehicles of the year by Consumer Reports. You can learn more about the Santa Fe here.
The Santa Fe currently comes in two different trim levels, the GLS and the Limited. The GLS starts at $29,900 and features seating for seven, including a 50/50 split third-row seat, an 8-way powered driver’s seat with 4-way power lumbar support and heated seats, 18″ alloy wheels, 40/20/40 sliding and folding second-row seats, rear seat HVAC, a rear roof spoiler, projector headlights with LED accents and a windshield wiper de-icer. The Limited, the higher of the two trim levels, starts at $33,800 and features 290-hp, a blind spot detection system, leather seats, a powered lift gate, six passenger seating with second-row captain’s chairs, manual rear-side power sun shades, dual-zone temperature control and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with Home Link capability.
The Santa Fe is the larger of the two Santa Fe versions, which likely means it’ll be more expensive to ship. Though it’s a crossover, it’s a mid-size crossover SUV which means it’s the same basic size as a mid-size SUV but built on a car-based platform (in this case, the Hyundai Sonata platform). Its size and weight likely will lead to small oversize or overweight vehicle shipping fees, which are unavoidable; this is because its weight makes it more expensive for carriers due to decreasing their fuel economy, particularly on a full truck (one with nine other vehicles on it). However, it will still cost much less than a full-size SUV or pickup truck, and much of your auto transport price to ship your Santa Fe will come from the pickup and delivery locations and the distance between them, as well as how easy it is for carriers to get to and from those locations.
