Hyundai Santa Fe is a great car began as a real 4WD, not just an SUV. The South Korean company understands how preferences buyer position and became a comfortable van, but retains some road capacity unsealed.
However, the new and improved model, launched in 2006, took a safer way style, more conventional. The change in the way it was worth it and there was much more interest from buyers.
The third generation of Santa Fe, arrived in October 2012. It is longer and wider than its predecessors, once again, is marketed as a practical family car is not a 4WD. a reform of middle-aged, in November 2015 was received, but have not seen any of these in the used car market.
There is a good legroom in the back of the original model, but some of it is due to the limitation of legroom in the front seats. Santa Fe May 2006 was higher than its predecessors and a choice of the third row of seats is offered as an option.
There is a good luggage space, including children containers and storage space hidden under the floor panel. As is common in this class the third row of seats draw a substantial amount of boot volume. A network blind and retractable luggage improve security and safety.
driving comfort is generally good and has improved dramatically with each new model. Over the years, more and more the entry of Australia’s suspension engineers was incorporated in Santa Fe. Do not expect a BMW or Merc low cost, however. On the hill of Santa Fe copes well with dimples on dirt roads. Off road that offers very good comfort if the driver behaves in a common way.
Santa Fe originally came only with a V6 2.7-liter engine, but the range was expanded in 2001, when a 2.4-liter four-cylinder was added to the election. However, the four-cylinder engine was not so popular and was removed from the Australian market in late 2003.
Since late 2006, the Hyundai Santa Fe offered a turbo-diesel engine. The fuel saving potential is worth the hunt.
four-cylinder engines in the range of Santa Fe in 2012 new generation units are excellent with great hoarse in gasoline, and even more turbo-diesel.
Santa Fe is simple in mechanical design and good mechanical home is that you are able to do a lot of work. It always pays to have a good shop manual in hand. But please do not try to make repairs related to safety, unless you really know what you’re doing.
Hyundai dealer network is great. Distributors are not as common in the bush, but the number is constantly growing. Check your local area to ensure that parts and service offered close to hand.
spare parts are average for this class and rarely here of any real problem with them being in stock.
Insurance costs are moderate, but appears to be a greater extent than the average premiums between companies. I worth taking the time to shop around for the best deal, as always forget to make an accurate comparison.
