GET YOUR ADVENTURE ON!
Both my 2012 Mini Cooper (1.6L NA) and 2007 Honda CRV (2.4L NA) have a 0-60mph of 8.7 seconds and have no trouble doing anything. In fact, the Mini didn't even need to slow down for corners like those big HP square trucks out there. It was always fun swinging wide and passing them on corners. Brake pads lasted forever! Lol...The N/A engine is painfully slow at 0-60 mph in 9 seconds. I don't think you could even merge onto highway traffic safely at those slow acceleration numbers.
Seriously thou, ProfessCars(tm) says the 2022 Tucson SE FWD 8spd auto has 0-60mph listed as 8.1 seconds (same 2.5L NA engine). Is there a true 0-60mph number stated by Hyundai for the Santa Cruz SE and SEL already?
Sweat! The waters are starting to clear once again. We're getting close to seeing the real deal at the showrooms across the nation.Good news/bad news - yes, you need to go up to the SEL to get the XM capable audio system. As for the auto-dimming mirror, it is available as a dealer or port option on any trim level.
Last week and this week, Hyundai has been allocating one Santa Cruz to each US dealer. Today (at least in the southeast) dealers had an additional allocation - from checking with a few dealers, the smaller ones got 2 more each and the larger ones got 6 additional units. Depending on location the first ones should start hitting the dealer lot before the end of THIS month, with the additional units not far behind (with some dealers only taking 1-2 days by truck and others taking longer having to be shipped by rail and then sent on by truck)..
It was always my understanding that manufacturers made deals with XM to get them in the cars and the cost to them was minimal, because XM wants that monthly fee. I like the extremely wide variety XM offers, including financial stations like CNBC and Bloomberg. Plus having crystal clear music of any type out on the trail when wheeling and camping is wonderful. Thanks for sharing you positive experience with the add-on XM setup.I ran that setup for almost 20 years. First in my Nissan Frontier and then in my Ford Focus. Like you said, you could drive across the country and listen to the same station the whole way without having to worry about losing the signal or cell service. And they basically give those receivers away, I think, because their profit comes from subscriptions, not hardware.
