The Santa Fe was designed and built with quality and precision workmanship at its core. It’s the perfect partner for life lived with passion - matching the challenges of full and active lifestyles, the needs of growing families and executive transport.
Storm Edge is the name we give to the design of the New Generation Hyundai Santa Fe – where soft forms meet dramatic edges to create a dynamic and imposing style. Striking LED daytime running lights and a bold hexagonal front grille complete the Santa Fe’s commanding presence.
Keeping connected means staying in touch with family, friends or the office and being able to access your media. That’s why Bluetooth® connectivity with voice recognition, USB/Aux and iPod® connections are all standard across the range. Premium and Premium SE models also feature a state of the art 7” touchscreen display which controls Bluetooth® functions and compatible media devices. Satellite navigation is housed within the touchscreen display with full postcode entry and Traffic Messaging Channel, which helps you to avoid slow traffic or roadworks by suggesting alternative routes.
Refinement and luxury
The New Generation Santa Fe offers increased comfort with plentiful leg, head and shoulder room for all. The care and consideration perfecting the exterior style is mirrored inside - creating a supremely calm and uncluttered environment with intuitive controls, premium quality surfaces and luxurious seat fabrics. Premium and Premium SE models take luxury a step further with standard black leather seats, with sumptuous cream leather available on Premium SE models.
Personal comfort zone
Refining your environment is essential on any journey which is why Style models benefit from air conditioning and electric driver’s seat lumbar support. For added comfort, dual zone climate control is standard on Premium and Premium SE models with the advantage of third row air conditioning for rear passengers on 7 seat versions. The Premium SE model also benefits from a fully adjustable electric driver’s seat, while a sophisticated panoramic sunroof floods the interior with light - adding to the feeling of space. For ventilation, the front section can either be tilted or fully opened.
Practical and versatile
True to its heritage, the Santa Fe still offers the versatility and practicality expected in this class of vehicle. The 5 seat model has an increased luggage capacity of 585 litres with the seats up, expanding to a substantial 1,680 litres with seats down. The 7 seat model offers the flexibility of an MPV, while benefitting from up to 516 litres of luggage capacity with the third row seats folded flat and 1,615 litres when both 2nd and 3rd row seats are down. To provide even greater flexibility, the 2nd row seats slide back providing more leg space or forward to increase luggage capacity further.
To help negotiate tricky spaces, rear parking sensors are standard on every New Generation Santa Fe. Premium and Premium SE models introduce a rear parking camera with the display housed within the 7” touchscreen, while Premium SE models add front parking sensors and Smart Parking Assist, which automatically parallel parks the Santa Fe after scanning for a suitable space. All you need to do is control the throttle and brake.
Flex Steer, standard across the range, enables you to adjust your steering according to your environment. Offering three different settings, you can choose Normal mode for day to day driving, Comfort to lighten the load for tricky manoeuvres, or Sport for a crisp, rewarding drive on the open road. Cruise control with speed limiter is also standard, allowing stress free driving on longer journeys. Premium SE models feature keyless entry which automatically unlocks the New Generation Santa Fe with the key in your pocket or bag, so you don’t have to worry about searching for it. Then just press the start/stop button and you can begin your next adventure.
2WD or 4WD
The Santa Fe Style is available with either 2 wheel drive (Style models only) or with torque on demand 4WD. This intelligent system directs power to all four wheels only when adverse driving conditions demand it. So you'll get more grip when you need it, and better economy when you don't. When the going gets really tough, 4WD lock mode gives you maximum traction and stability. Downhill Brake Control is also standard on 4WD models, which means you don’t have to hold the brake when going down a steep incline - the system controls the descent at a gentle, safe pace.
Engine and transmissions
Producing 197PS, the 2.2 CRDi diesel engine delivers high performance with fuel economy. 6-speed manual transmission is available across the range, with 4WD models offering the option of an advanced 6-speed automatic transmission. With 422Nm of torque, the New Generation Santa Fe offers power on the open road whilst giving it the capability to comfortably cruise with a caravan or boat in tow. And through the combination of advanced technologies and structural innovations, road noise, vibration and harshness have all been reduced. The new Santa Fe not only performs - it also offers serenity and quiet.
The New Generation Santa Fe delivers the same amount of power as its predecessor, but with a marked reduction in CO2 emissions. 2WD models emit 155 g/km while intelligent torque on demand 4WD manual models produce just 159 g/km, with automatic models producing 178 g/km. This advanced engine technology benefits company car drivers with Benefit in Kind tax for 2012/2013 starting from 26%.
