Although the new Hyundai Santa Fe has been pared down to give it a sleek look, power has certainly not been compromised here. This new release features a 2.0 litre turbocharged four cylinder engine, while this powerful engine delivers between 2700 and 3300rpm.
The Santa Fe provides smooth and effortless acceleration and this mean machine is just as comfortable out on the open road as it is cruising through town. The vehicle’s new diet means that the weight it has lost has increased its efficiency significantly, while high-strength materials have been used to improve the chassis rigidity by an impressive 16 per cent. In turn, the suspension is now able to focus more on soaking up bumps and impacts, which provides a much smoother ride.
Attention has also been paid to kitting out the interior of the Hyundai Santa Fe. The vehicle comes complete with a number of useful modern conveniences including power windows and locks, a handy pushbutton start, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and an innovative six speaker AM/FM/MP3/satellite audio system that is coupled with iPod and USB inputs.
Other additional features that motorists are sure to love in the new Santa Fe include real leather upholstery, dual zone climate control, heated rear seats and a 4.3 inch touch screen. Although the Santa Fe has been made slightly smaller, there is still plenty of head and leg room inside for the driver and passengers to enjoy. When adding in the fact that this is a very safe vehicle, taking it for a test drive is a must.
