John Shon on the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

John Shon is the product manager for the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Sonata. Shon talked to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO,, at Robert Redford’s Sundance home in Utah.

Shon goes through the engines and why they would bring us up to 8,400 feet altitude.

Shon also goes through the models and the short wheel base versus the long-wheel base.

BMW has an X3 and X5, one is a two row, the other a three row. Why did Hyundai keep the same name for their second row and third row?
