The Hyundai Santa Fe is a mid-size crossover SUV, named after Mexican city of Santa Fe. It was first launched in 2001 and was a considerable hit, making it a great commercial success for the manufacturer. There was an award winning upgrade in 2006 and a further revision in 2009. There is little doubt that this is one the best cars Hyundai has made.
The car has excellent 4x4 technology; it can seat seven people and the build quality is very high both inside and out to make this car excellent value. This is a great family transporter and has an excellent safety record making it the ideal car for the school run.
There are several engine options which include the most popular 148 bhp 2.2 litre diesel, which has excellent torque throughout the rev range and is the ideal choice if the intention is to use the Santa Fe as a tow car. There is also a 186 bhp V6 2.7 litre engine which is available in earlier models, though this quite a thirsty unit with a fuel consumption of 27 mpg.
As a used car the Hyundai Santa Fe is a good choice and offers the best value for money in its class. There is also more space than in its immediate SUV alternatives. Even when fully loaded the ride is very good and models manufactured after 2009 also have self levelling suspension.
With the Santa Fe you get emphasis on power and safety rather than speed. The sportiest version is the 2.2 litre CRDI which has a top speed of 118 mpg and a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of 9.8 seconds, but although you might not be the first one away at the lights you are likely to be one of the safest.
For good safe family transport and as a tow vehicle with some off road capabilities, the Hyundai Santa Fe is a popular buy. There are a good many of them available for sale throughout the UK from approved Hyundai dealers, independent traders and private sellers.
