I love to drive new vehicles. There is something about the feel of a new set of wheels! Even if they aren’t my own, I still love trying out new features, the new car smell (even if it isn’t great for me) and the general feel of the road in a new vehicle.
I was very excited to be approached by Hyundai Canada a few weeks ago. They asked me test out the 2013 Santa Fe for a week and I jumped on the opportunity pretty quick, I’m sure they could feel my excitement through the computer screen!
We had the Santa Fe over the long weekend and I was loving it so much that when we arrived back home from visiting one side of our family, I promptly packed the car back up to take the kids up to the cottage for an over night visit! I felt like a crazy Mom, but at the same time, I knew they would love the visit, as would I, AND I would love the drive! Despite a few sibling fights in the back seat, the drive was so much fun! The kids loved listening to music through my iPhone (yes, I could integrate my phone into the audio system in the vehicle) and watching the sky through the beautiful panoramic sun roof!
Even the front seats had nice sized storage pockets for the kids to put their things on our trips away…
And when I packed it up…twice, it fit all of my luggage which was nice as in some vehicles, it is a struggle. This Mom likes to pack for many contingencies when we go away!
I couldn’t write this post without sharing the little video I took of us driving down the cottage road! We were all SO excited!
There is so much to say about this vehicle, I will save the rest for another post…..
And here it is: 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Insides
