November 4, 2014

At Car Leasing Made Simple, we have driven a seven seater Hyundai Santa FE 2.2 CRDi Premium SE model.

Santa FE is an family SUV car comes with confident styling, luxurious interior quality and loads of space that you will love about it….

How about design and styling of Santa FE?

Hyundai Santa FE is very bold, handsome and stylist SUV that comes in choice of five seats and seven seats option. It has got aggressive angular headlights, trapezoidal chrome grille and sleek look. The car competes with Kia Sorento, Honda CR-V and Volvo XC90.

The South Korean automaker Hyundai has worked hard to improve the quality of the car inside and out.. and we can see the result in Santa FE. We have driven the Premium SE version and its comes with numerous advanced qualities and plenty of family friendly touches.

Is the Santa Fe any good to drive?

We took a test drive of 2.2 CRDi Premium SE diesel automatic model and it is exceptionally smooth and quite. Its high profile tyres and bumpers sock up big bumps remarkably well and the steering wheel is very quick and sensible all the time.

The Santa FE four wheel drive adds excellent 2,500kg towing capacity and also a more capable off-roader than models such as Nissan X-Trail. It’s 4.2 LCD TFT display presents important details of fuel economy, flex steer setting, tyre pressure monitoring system and smart parking assist.

The car is smooth, comfortable and relaxed to drive not for only driver but for passengers as well. The panoramic sunroof floods the interior with light adding to the feeling of space.

How about the cabin and practicality?

“Supremely practical and versatile with loads of storage areas”

The seven seater model offers the great practicality and flexibility of an MPV benefits from 516 litres of luggage capacity with folding third row seats down and 1,615 litres with both 2nd and 3rd row seats are down. The second tow seats has slides back option providing more legroom.

To provide even greater flexibility, the 2nd row seats slide back providing more leg space or forward to increase luggage capacity further. The third row seats are mainly designed for children where as middle row seats have decent space and headroom even for tall adults.

We are impressed with its storage areas including two cup-holders, a huge centre storage area, big door pockets and a large glove box.

The car is fitted with advanced safety features thus awarded the maximum five star safety ratings in the Euro NCAP crash safety tests. The car has done very well and scored an impressive 96 percent score for adult protection. Comes with seven airbags and five year mileage warranty as standard.
