All-New Hyundai Santa Fe

11 April 2012

New-Hyundai-Santa-Fe-2012

  

Write a Review about the Hyundai Santa Fe

New Generation i30 looks set to build upon the remarkable success achieved by the original model when its hits UK showrooms today. It will offer consumers a stylish and more refined alternative with improved comfort and packaging, an increased level of standard feature, lower emissions and cost of ownership.

 

  Prices start from £14,495 (on the road) and rise to £20,795 – offering a line-up of four engines (two petrol and two diesels) with five power outputs ranging from 90 to 128ps and four trim levels - Classic, Active, Style and Style Nav.

Hyundai is committed to developing its clean diesel technologies.  The new 1.6-litre diesel unit, featuring Intelligent Stop & Go technologies, delivers an impressive power to efficiency ratio, providing an output of 128ps and emissions of just 100 g/km. This will make this model one of the most efficient vehicles in the C-segment.

Hyundai has staged the world premiere of the all-new Santa Fe at the 2012 New York International Auto Show.  In its latest form, the popular SUV is re-styled inside and out, fitted with enhanced features and new technology, and powered by re-tuned engines with improved efficiency – ensuring that it will offer European buyers a visually-appealing, sophisticated lifestyle vehicle when it goes on sale in late summer.

Hyundai is keeping the name, Santa Fe, continuing the heritage of the car manufacturer’s well-established SUV model as it enters its third generation.  Hyundai expects this new-generation model to continue the company’s strong performance in the SUV market, and to capture more than 5% share of its market segment in Europe during its first full year on sale in 2013.

Influenced by Hyundai’s form language, Fluidic Sculpture, the third-generation Santa Fe adopts its own design concept called ‘Storm Edge’, which captures the strong and dynamic images created by nature during the formation of a storm.

Featuring sophisticated and refined lines, which are in harmony with its bold and voluminous surfaces, New Generation Santa Fe presents a more masculine, more aggressive and more characterful SUV appearance than its predecessor.

Three powertrain options will be available to European buyers, including a new, super-efficient, Euro 6- compliant 2,0-litre ‘R’ VGT diesel engine.  Producing 150ps, this powerplant emits just 155g/km of CO2.  The 2,2-litre diesel unit has been tuned for greater efficiency, making it one of the cleanest offerings in the segment with CO2 emissions of only 145 g/km.

To ensure the newcomer is best suited to the tastes of European drivers, extensive development work has been completed for the European-specification model.  This includes modifications to the steering, suspension and brakes, as well as changes to the car’s set-up to aid to high-speed stability and towing ability.

As with all newly-launched models in Europe, the New Generation Santa Fe will come with Hyundai’s industry-best customer care package, Five Year Triple Care – comprising a five-year unlimited warranty, five years of roadside assistance, and five years of vehicle health checks.

Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, Allan Rushforth, commented, “The original Santa Fe has maintained strong sales year-on-year across Europe, thanks to its combination of quality, practicality and value.  Now, New Generation Santa Fe retains the earlier model’s key strengths – practicality, roominess and dependability – while also offering consumers much more.

“With its fresh exterior styling, more efficient engines, greater comfort and improved quality, New Generation Santa Fe is a truly attractive proposition that will build on the successes of the previous model by broadening its emotional appeal.”

The company expects the New Generation Santa Fe to appeal to new consumers from a wider demographic range – including some owners of premium-brand SUVs.

The New Generation Santa Fe’s powertrain line-up has been developed to suit the demands of European customers, with three engines at launch covering 80% of demand in the region’s D-SUV segment.  Delivering a broad spread of power and torque, the three engines offer drivers performance across multiple terrains, without compromising class-leading fuel efficiency and emissions.

The powertrain line-up features one petrol and two diesel engines, with outputs between 150ps and 200ps.  All of these engines combine excellent power with improved efficiency and class-leading emissions figures.

The range-topping diesel engine remains Hyundai’s 2,2-litre ‘R’ diesel engine featuring a variable geometry turbo (VGT).  This all-aluminium, powerplant generates 200ps and 431Nm of torque, and Hyundai’s engineers have reduced the CO2 emissions to 145 g/km – among the lowest in the segment.

With this powerful engine, the new Santa Fe delivers strong performance, accelerating from 0 to 100 kph in 9,4 seconds (manual transmission, 2WD).

Hyundai will also offer a smaller, 2,0-litre ‘R’ diesel engine with VGT which completes the diesel line-up.  Developing 150ps and delivering 382Nm of torque, this refined powerplant emits just 155g/km of CO2 emissions when applied to the Santa Fe.

Thanks to the variable geometry turbocharger fitted to both diesel engines, New Generation Santa Fe offers 100% of torque from low revs – just 2.000 rpm – which makes the car well suited to both off-road terrains and dynamic on-road driving.

A ‘Theta II’ 2,4-litre GDI engine will offer European customers a petrol alternative.  Its maximum power (193ps) and modest CO2 emissions of 197 g/km again set the New Generation Santa Fe apart as a segment leader.
