Adds a bigger 8.0in touchscreen and a few luxuries such as keyless entry and start, LED headlights and a heated steering wheel, but we’d stick with SE.
Engine:2.2 CRDi Blue Drive
This is the only option available with the Santa Fe and it’s at least a decent diesel engine. It pulls well from low revs and will see off most versions of the Skoda Kodiaq and Peugeot 5008 in the 0-62mph sprint. It’s available with two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, with a six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic transmission. Although we’ve only driven the four-wheel-drive auto, we reckon it’s likely that the two-wheel-drive manual will be the better choice because it will be better value.
