Hyundai's Santa Fe has finally gone under the scalpel to emerge as a contemporary global SUV with Fluidic flair. But does it have what it takes to become a success? Well, we recently tested it to find out
The Americans appreciate it, the Europeans like it quite a bit because of its practicality and, what they like the most, its good towing capability. I am referring to Hyundai's third-generation Santa Fe, which has been eliciting good, if not great, reviews from our friends in the west. Hyundai have finally brought this new-gen Santa Fe to India and after bringing you our first impression last month, here is a thorough road test of this butch SUV.
Santa Fe is one of the favourite SUVs in the west and in India. But it was getting old. It desperately needed a revamp. After all, a number of its cousins were treated to the 'Fluidic Design Language' in the recent past. However, just when the Santa Fe was likely to feel sidelined, the company gave it a very special revamp, making it one of the most contemporary SUVs out there. And it was not just a nip-and-tuck job either. Hyundai wanted to make a statement with the new Santa Fe and they went the whole yard to achieve that.
