Overview

A new world-beating engine, more equipment and a stylish new look - all at a lower price. The 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe looks too good to be true.

But buyers looking for a big, practical family car can stop pinching themselves, as Hyundai has confirmed the amazing news that its 2010 Santa Fe will actually be cheaper than the car it replaces, despite a raft of improvements.

The headline news is the Hyundai Santa Fe's world-class new powertrain, offering an unrivalled combination of performance and economy. It means that the Hyundai Santa Fe is now comparable on price and emissions with MPVs and estate cars, and comfortably powers ahead of SUV rivals.

Much more than a simple nip-and-tuck, the new Santa Fe also benefits from subtly enhanced exterior styling and improved safety. Despite this, Hyundai has actually managed to make the list price even more competitive - with obvious benefits to private buyers and company car drivers alike.
