The all-new Santa Fe is the biggest SUV in the Hyundai fleet. It’s also good-looking, robust, roomy, comfortable and very practical. Families with an adventurous side will certainly find much to enjoy about this versatile vehicle, which is available in SE, Premium and Premium SE trim levels.
The chunkily attractive Santa Fe is an SUV that looks good in any setting, whether cruising the motorway, zipping around town or handling less-than-forgiving terrains. Open one of five doors to discover an interior that provides plenty of room in rows one and two, the latter of which can easily accommodate three adults. The third row, meanwhile, is perfectly suited to conveying a pair of children. With seats up, the Santa Fe offers 547 litres of luggage volume; with rows two and three folded, cargo capacity rises to as much as 1,625 litres.
This SUV comes with a choice of four diesel engines, beginning with a 2.2-litre 197bhp unit that delivers progress from a standing start to 60mph in little more than nine seconds. This four-cylinder unit also returns up to 42.8mpg and produces CO2 emissions from 156g/km. What’s more, a four-wheel drivetrain provides the vehicle with its go-anywhere capabilities.
Entry-level SE trims feature a six-speaker stereo system that includes a seven-inch touchscreen and DAB radio. Premium grades and above are fitted with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system that comes with ten loudspeakers and satellite navigation functionality. All models include AUX and USB inputs and Bluetooth connectivity – and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which enables you to mirror your smartphone’s display via that of the vehicle’s.
It’s of paramount importance that a family car is as safe as possible, and the Santa Fe certainly delivers on this score. For one thing, it comes with a full five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating and Hyundai’s SmartSense safety technology, which incorporates numerous collision-avoidance systems, as well a parking safety feature that includes a rear-view monitor.
