2017 Santa Fe

Three models are on offer – Premium, Executive and Elite – and they’re priced from R599 900 to R749 900. Prices include a five-year/150 000km warranty (with additional two-year/50 000km powertrain warranty extension), and five-year/90 000km service plan.

All three feature Hyundai’s acclaimed 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine, producing 142kW and 440Nm, and mated to a brand new eight-speed automatic gearbox that claims to improve efficiency by up to four percent.

While Premium and Executive models deliver their power to the front wheels, the Elite is fitted with an enhanced all-wheel-drive system, which variably controls torque distribution to the front and back wheels, as well as braking power, as needed.

All versions are fitted with a new 17.8cm touchscreen high-res infotainment system featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, as well as a reverse camera. Also standard across the range is leather seats, cruise control, climate control and six airbags.
