2014 Santa Fe in Freeport is the Car.com Family Car of Year

Hyundai Santa Fe Freeport

The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe was recently recognized as the Family Car of the Year by the respected Cars.com staff.

The popular Santa Fe models helped drive Hyundai to a record year for sales last year, as sales increased by more than 25 percent last year for the crossover Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport.

Sure, it’s easy to take a look at the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and recognize that it has the best looks of the crossover class with its sporty vibe and sleek styling. But the Hyundai Santa Fe in Freeport is not all looks without substance. Nope, not even close. In fact, it’s the leader in just about every category in the crossover sector.

Recognized as the Family Car of the Year by Cars.com at its 2014 Lifestyle Awards, the Santa Fe Sport from Hyundai in Houston dealers passes all the tests. To achieve this award, vehicles must meet strict requirements such as ratings of acceptable or higher in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests, a reliability rating of average or higher, a comfortable ride, easy handling and average or better gas mileage in its class.

Available in various colors and options packages from a Don Davis Hyundai — your new and used Hyundai in Houston dealership — the Santa Fe Sport was also recognized as the top Crossover Utility of the Year at the annual CultureMap Auto Awards.

The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe in Freeport delivers more giddy-up, more interior space and more safety features than any of its rivals.

A well-equipped model, the Santa Fe Sport is powered by a 190-horsepower engine — five more hp than its closest rival. It also boasts 71.5 cubic feet of cargo space — nearly a cubic foot more than its closest rival, and seven airbags standard on all models — more than the competition’s six airbags.

Safe, too, is this crossover sensation. The Santa Fe Sport is sturdily constructed; and because it holds its resale value well it also has been named to Kelley Blue Book’s 10 best SUVs under $25,000.

Simply put, the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe makes no competition of the competition.

The Sport models’ big sister, the Santa Fe is just as accomplished, with 20 more horsepower than the leading rival, in addition to two more cubic feet of cargo space and seven standard airbags compared to the competition’s six. And because looks do indeed matter — the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe in Rockwall comes standard with 18-inch wheels, which give it yet another edge over rivals.

A great fit for just about anyone, a 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport is something you really should give a try. Schedule a test drive online now and arrange a visit to Don Davis Hyundai at 214 W. Hwy 332 in Lake Jackson, Texas to take this award winner for a spin.
