As our weekwith the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport continues, we've noticed a number of clever little touches that bring additional functionality to an already versatile interior. Underneath the cargo floor in the vehicle's trunk is a series of hidden storage compartments that are great for holding loose objects or keeping valuables out of the way of prying eyes.

This means you always have it on hand, should you need it, and don't have to leave it cluttering up your garage.

For eight long months, ex-lawman Steve Dobbie has matched wits with a Santa Fe, N.M., escape artist whose spirit, tactical instincts and sheer will to remain free have repeatedly left him shaking his head in respect. Dobbie's quarry isn't human - he's a stray dog named Pepper. But Dobbie still experienced the thrill of fist-pumping victory when he finally got his man, er, dog, after some 240 days of sheer frustration and near-misses. “During his time on the streets, a day didn't go by when I didn't increase my respect and admiration for that dog,” Dobbie told the Los Angeles Times.
