Revealed in 2020, the updated fourth-generation Hyundai Santa Fe has finally arrived in South Africa. The local arm of the Korean carmaker has now revealed pricing for its flagship SUV line-up, comprising two variants.
Locally, a single engine option is on offer – Hyundai’s 2,2-litre four-cylinder diesel motor, which is mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission sending 148 kW and 440 N.m (the latter on tap from 1 750 r/min to 2 750 r/min) to either the front wheels (in the entry-level, Executive derivative) or to all four corners in the Elite.
Priced at R769 500, the R2,2 Executive features, among others, screen-mirroring software, wireless smartphone charging, heated and ventilated front seats and reverse-view camera. Sited at the top of the two-strong model range, the R2,2 Elite AWD adds a panoramic sunroof and a rear door window curtain to the package, and, of course, the all-wheel-drive drivetrain. The R2,2 Elite AWD has an asking price of R869 500.
Standard safety items for both models include dual front and curtain airbags, ABS and ESP, and blind-spot monitoring. A five-year/75 000 km service plan and five-year/150 000 km warranty ship standard.
