TrueDelta Reviews the Available Features of the 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe

2012 Hyundai Santa Fe Available Features: Cons
YearComment
You can get a fair amount of kit in the new Santa Fe, including proximity key, heated seats in the first two rows, and an unusually large panoramic sunroof. But if you want a power-adjustable steering column, cooled front seats, a factory-installed rear seat entertainment system, or the latest safety monitors (such as blind spot and lane departure warnings) you'll have to shop elsewhere. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
