The boot space in this car is 516 liters, and if the rear seats are collapsed forward, the boot space can be increased to 1,615 liters.

Interior Design

When it comes to its interior design, the Santa Fe presents a fine leather-wrapped finish. In comparison to other jeeps, this model has quite comfy seats. As a result, it provides not only a nice feel but also a luxurious appearance. It also has some useful storage spaces. The driver’s cabin has plenty of legroom. The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe also has a multi-functional steering wheel that has been redesigned- for the better,  in comparison to other automobiles. The driver’s cabin includes four air vents, while the passenger compartment has two air vents.

Ride Quality

It provides an enjoyable and balanced driving experience and ride quality, for both the driver and his passengers. You can even travel on a rugged road without the added stress and anxiety, because this vehicle comes with a higher-than-average ground clearance.
