Overview

When it comes to bringing revolution in its family of cars, Hyundai has made several successful attempts. The automaker has reached a stage from making drab to fab automobiles. Each and every car has went under a significant evolution, thus making it look and feel much more desirable than their previous iterations. One such vehicle is Hyundai’s flagship SUV, the Santa Fe. Currently, Hyundai has previewed an all-new generation Santa Fe, however, the current generation Santa Fe too doesn’t lack modernity by any means, given its premium appeal and feel. Currently, the Santa Fe sold in the Philippines is in third generation model year. It is available with only one engine option - a 2.2-litre diesel mill with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The single fully loaded GLS variant is offered in six color options – Ocean View, Phantom Black, Red Merlot, Tan Brown, Titanium Silver, and Vanilla White.

Interior & Features

On the inside too, the Santa Fe carries the fluidic design language pretty well, with the SUV having the most dramatic looking cabin design. However, there are a couple of bits which make it look slightly dated.

The four-spoke steering wheel finished in brown with silver inserts is the best one which we have seen on all the Hyundai cars till date, and goes well with the dual tone brown and beige interior layout of the car. The Y-shaped flowing down pattern for the front dashboard design looks very cool and distinctive, however, the absence of a touchscreen infotainment system and an archaic looking 2-DIN music system with Bluetooth compatibility in its place look a bit dated. The simple looking design of the automatic climate control buttons too looks a bit old in terms of design. The overall centre console of the front dashboard of the Santa Fe looks a bit dated due to the absence of modern elements and equipment.

The Santa Fe does come with few noticeable features to justify its premium price tag, such as cruise control, push-button start with keyless entry, and dual-zone automatic climate control with AC vents for all the three rows. However, we would have loved to see more and more features on this flagship vehicles, considering the fact that the vehicle priced lower than Santa Fe come with more features as compared to the former. The space for all the three rows is pretty adequate in terms of comfort.

Exterior

We all have already gone gaga over the all-new fourth generation Santa Fe unveiled globally. However, this third generation Santa Fe on sale in the Philippines right now has still got that handsomeness which makes it look premium and good looking.

At the front, the Santa Fe welcomes one with a large and wide slanted hexagonal chrome grille with three thick chrome slats to make it look bulky and elegant at the same time. The angular headlamps placed at the upper corners of the grille are large and look premium thanks to the availability of projector bulbs with daytime running lights. The front bumper, in this iteration, has been revised which looks smarter with nice silver designing around fog lamp housings.

The Santa Fe maintains its fluidic design language from the sides. It is the most aerodynamic pron SUV, thanks to the presence of noticeable curves and lines, and sweeping up waistline, which along with the door handles, is finished in chrome to make the overall side profile look sporty and elegant at the same time. The large 18-inch alloy wheels too look good as well.

The rear of the Santa Fe looks most generic as per the overall design language, but then, it goes well with the overall design of the car pretty well. The large but sleek LED tail lamps look smart indeed, and the presence of silver skid plates and bumper cladding make it look bulky and large in overall appeal.

Ride & Handling

The Santa Fe is a large vehicle in terms of visual appeal as well as mass, which translates the fact that it might not feel as agile as the similarly specced sedans. However, given its aerodynamic profile, the high speed stability as well as body roll are well controlled. The vehicle has got a suspension setup of MacPherson struts with stabilizer at the front and multi-link suspension with stabilizer at the rear, which has been tuned on a softer side to make it feel plush over all bad sections of roads with equal compliance.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

Currently, the Santa Fe sold in the Philippines comes with only engine and gearbox combination, and that too, with a single full-spec GLS variant only. The engine here is a 2.2-litre diesel engine which puts up a maximum power output of 200 PS and a maximum torque output of 450 Nm. The engine here is coupled to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. As with all the Hyundais, the Santa Fe’s engine too has got class-leading refinement levels, with a nice surge of torque down the rev range.

Braking & Safety

The Santa Fe not only lacks in terms of comfort and convenience feature, but also, the vehicle misses out many modern safety bits which one takes for granted in such a full-size SUV. The Santa Fe covers up only the basics such as dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, seat belt pretensioners with force limiters, and reverse parking sensors.

Verdict

Considering the fact that the all-new generation model has been previewed, this Santa Fe makes less sense for those who want an up-to-date SUV which comes with a plethora of features on offer. This currently-on-sale Santa Fe lacks a lot of modernity, thanks to the absence of many comfort and safety features. But then, this Santa Fe still is one head turner thanks to its fluidic design and feels comfortable on the inside for the passengers for all the three rows.

    the Hyundai Santa Fe and looking back, I think I made the right decision.

    My employer offered me a special employee discount on cars that lasted for a month so I had 30 days to decide which vehicle to go for! After surfing the web for hours altogether, I decided to purchase the Hyundai Santa Fe and looking back, I think I made the right decision. This is one of the few things that Read More

    The perfect family car

    While looking for a family car, I came across the Hyundai Santa Fe and was impressed with its appearance, features and performance. I did not want a conventional SUV that was huge in size and also expensive. I found the Santa Fe to be more practical, economical and less brash than other rivals such as the Land Rover.
