The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe appears to be a big step forward for Hyundai, yet again, as the last fully revamped product in the Hyundai portfolio was the Santa Fe. While cars like the Elantra and Sonata received a more competitive stance, the Santa Fe was left out for quite sometime.

Now though, things have changed.

Armed with short and long wheelbase models, Hyundai is proclaiming that it will be taking on two different classes of sport-utility vehicles, the compact and midsize classes. But it has snubbed the 2013 Ford Escape from being a direct competitor, though we believe it'll prove troublesome for Hyundai.

In addition, we expect vehicles like the Honda CR-V, which has a loyal fanbase, to get cross-shopped with the all-new Santa Fe alongside the Toyota RAV-4.

That said, who do YOU think is going to get the most trouble from the introduction of Hyundai's latest SUV, the Santa Fe?

Will it be vehicles like the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV-4, Nissan Rogue, Ford Escape, OR the larger Ford Edge, Toyota Venza, Chevrolet Equinox?

For Agent 001's take, check out his review of the all-new 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe.
