Review

There’s loads to like about the Santa Fe, namely its big boot, seven-seat practicality and impressive roster of standard equipment. However, no matter whether you’re paying cash, signing up to a PCP deal or running one as a company car, it isn’t quite the value option you might expect.

Trim: Premium

We reckon mid-level Premium trim makes the most sense, adding heated seats (front and back), a heated steering wheel and leather seats on top of everything you get with SE trim.

Engine: 2.2 CRDi

The only engine is a 197bhp 2.2-litre diesel that pulls well from low revs, no matter whether you opt for a manual or an automatic gearbox. Outright performance is on a par with the Peugeot 5008 2.0 HDi 180, although that car does have a quicker-responding automatic gearbox; the Santa Fe’s tends to dither a bit when you ask for a burst of acceleration.
