Hyundai’s Santa Fe has been given a facelift and improved specification levels.

Now available in two versions, the 2.0 CRTD CDX manual and automatic and the 2.7 V6 automatic, the Santa Fe features detailed restyling inside and out, and additional equipment.

The 2.0 CRTD CDX is on sale now at £17,995 for the five-speed manual or £18,995 for the four-speed automatic, while the new 2.7 V6 goes on sale in December at £18,995.

Every Santa Fe now comes with cruise control, front windscreen de-icer, heated door mirrors and heated front seats. Already a four star Euro NCAP rated car, the new Santa Fe adds side airbags as standard.

Both Santa Fe variants feature a new front grille, restyled side moulding and rear tailgate, new 16 inch alloy wheels, rear light clusters and rear bumper.

Inside, the instrument panel features a smarter binnacle and a trip computer as standard. The Santa Fe also now comes with light grey leather interior as standard.

The 2.7 V6 adds colour-coded reversing sensors, auto dimming rear view mirror and overhead compass to this standard equipment list.

In common with the rest of the Hyundai range, the Santa Fe comes with the company’s five year, unlimited mileage, fully transferable warranty as standard.
