Hyundai Sells 1 Millionth Santa Fe

By | August 02, 2013
Hyundai originally introduced the Santa Fe crossover in September 2000, and it quickly became a major competitor in the segment. This model year Hyundai is rolling out two new Santa Fe models, which lead the charge to a sales growth rate over 40 percent through June of this year, which has been highlighted by selling the 1 millionth Santa Fe here in the United States. The automaker was primarily known for building inexpensive compact cars before the Santa Fe exploded onto the scene. It entered the market with a design setting it apart from its competitors, and offers quality, equipment, and a new choice for Hyundai customers. Now in its third generation, the Hyundai Santa Fe continues to sell incredibly well in the segment. "When the 2001 Santa Fe launched in the United States 13 years ago, not only was it Hyundai's first SUV, but it was one of the first compact crossovers on the market, just behind the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V. It was a bold move that paid off and helped position Hyundai as a brand that could innovate in design and package, not just value and warranty," said John Krafcik, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America in a recent interview. Since its inception in 2001, the Hyundai Santa Fe has become an award winner, from the top-rated vehicle in the 2001 Vehicle Satisfaction Index to being U.S. News and World Report's "Best 3-Row Midsize SUV," and "2013 Best Car for the Money."

I like it much better since the re-design.  The old one look a bit "girly"

I used to always cringe when I saw them on the road, now I actually like them (since the redesign).

Congrats Hyundai!
