The new Santa Fe is powered by Hyundai’s ‘R’ Series 3rd Generation 2.2L CRDi with e-VGT (electronic variable geometry turbocharger) capable of releasing a good 195 horses. Torque figures are about 421 Nm from 6-speed manual and about 436 Nm from the 6-speed automatic. Hyundai claims that the CRDi engine operates at a high pressure of 1800 bar, and hence returns very good low-end torque. This improves city driving characteristics, by lessening the number of required gearshifts.

  • Manual returns 14.74 Km/L and the auto about 13.0 Km/L.
  • Comes with intelligent 4 Wheel Drive System.
  • Embodies Hyundai’s ‘Storm Edge’ design philosophy derived from much appreciated ‘Fluidic’ design philosophy.
  • LED positioning lamps.
  • 12-way power seats.
  • Touch screen audio and virtual surround system.
  • 6 airbags

The new Santa Fe comes laden with quite a few smart features in its interiors. Take for example the advanced infotainment audio system for the music-loving Indian customer. It is expected to produce quite an effect with 6 speakers for the virtual orchestra effect. The new Santa Fe also has a 4.3 inch LCD-TFT touchscreen with rear parking display, and features such as Bluetooth and steering mounted audio controls.
