NEW SANTA FE LEADS HYUNDAI DRIVE By Brian Foley

The new Santa Fe leads the Hyundai drive to be one of the top selling brands in Ireland, which is rapidly being achieved thanks to a comprehensive range of competitively priced models and an extended dealer network. Hyundai Cars Ireland now have the most modern and high quality models, backed by a 5-years warranty. The new image has not been achieved by hype, but by a product range that comes with style, highly efficient and economical petrol and diesel engines, and a high level of specification to match the build quality.

The new 3 rd Generation Hyundai Sante Fe is a 7-seater SUV, smarter, longer, wider and lower than before, more dynamic, more spacious and saferr. Four versions are:
Santa Fe 2WD Comfort €36,995
Santa Fe 4WD Executive Manual €40,995
Santa Fe 4WD Executive Automatic €44,995
Santa Fe 4WD Premium Automatic €48,995

With its 2.2 litre diesel engine, the Santa Fe is quite a mover, effortlessly covering long and short journeys with the usual excellent diesel economy and low CO2 emissions. For ordinary road driving the 2-wheel-drive version is absolutely fine, whilst the extra traction and off road mobility of the 4WD models makes light work of bad road and weather conditions, also ideal for pulling a trailer, horse box, caravan, boat etc..

Most impressive of all is the high standard of fittings and furnishings, allied with refined and relaxing travel comfort, that compares more than favourably with many so-callecd 'premium' models that cost a lot more.
