Hyundai Santa Fe review covering 2001 - 2006

Friday 5 September 2008

The Hyundai Santa Fe is very much a product that happened to arrive at the right place at the right time. Combine a rapacious national appetite for soft roaders with a feeling that we were being fleeced by many motoring manufacturers and the value option offered by Hyundai appeared extremely attractive. Offering a body bigger than Freelander/RAV4 rivals of the day for less money, the Santa Fe should have been a winner. The only downfall was the badge. 4x4 buyers are super brand conscious and for many, the big H just didn’t have sufficient metropolitan mumbo when it mattered. If badge snobbery isn’t your thing, a used Santa Fe represents a very capable and well-engineered alternative to the usual suspects.
