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 SE

Even the most ardent hedonist might feel over-pampered by the Santa Fe in range-topping Premium SE form. You get ventilated front seats and a panoramic roof, but it’s too pricey to recommend over cheaper Premium 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.
