Hyundai's Santa Fe Trail Limited Edition- Was That Worth It?
Australian Car market is now a buzz with the latest presentation of Hyundai. It might actually be not
tagged as “latest presentation” but rather the “latest update” on an earlier model. We are talking about
Santa Fe that is going to be launched for the model year 2013. Among the many Hyundai Cars for sale,
this one still holds a large number of admirers.
The first model had come out in the year 2001 and since them its gained immense popularity. The third
generation model is nothing but the extension of previous models that have come with minor and major
changes from time to time. Now, the new Santa Fe Trail a limited edition model has been a reason of talk
of the town. Get the look of it:
Style definition of this SUV is lower that the newer toys from Hyundai and other car makers, but being
seven-seat model combined with the equipments provided by the car maker. If compared to SLX model,
paying $1600 more for extras is worth. The 2.2 litre turbo diesel four-cylinder engine is another speciality
of these Trails. Remain assured that the features that had made it a prime car among the family buyers
are still much a part of it.
How about going Interiors:
Ease of cleanliness: partial leather coverings would let you wipe clean anything without the possibility of
stain. This is a plus for family people who constantly presented with many occasions of cleaning by their
pet and child.
Position of front seats: Front seats are made for enjoying more views around you even if you may feel
slight discomfort seating (narrow and flat). Passengers on the second row seats will have better leg space
and shoulder room with a seat for child. Occupants of third row seats will enjoy the roof fitted
entertainment equipment with inputs for devices like gaming consoles.
Accessibility of storages: Easy and available for every passenger.
Impressing only in terms of finish, the interiors are quite routine and may not appeal a car enthusiast.
Compared to the fresher arrivals, both from Hyundai and its rival, it touches the level of satisfactory but
Most modern equipments are included in the design except, touch screen multimedia interface climate
control, and Bluetooth connectivity that are considered important for by many present and potential
buyers of SUV and family car.
There are provisions made for including leatherette steering wheel and gear changer, partial leather
seats, reversing camera, rear seat DVD entertainment system with wireless headphones and remote
control, 18-inch alloys and privacy glass.
Capacity of 969 l with the folded third row and 632 Km of payload make Hyundai cars a perfect vehicle to
hop on for a long drive or on road vacation.
Performance on Road:
Love of driving
Torque of 436 Nm provides huge space for the joy of driver even when the automatic shifts are a bit
slower to respond. Enjoy a nice ride even on elevated landscapes.
It is noisy if compared to the petrol version but that is not much highlighted on a road trip. All other noises
are also well shut.
MacPherson strut front, multilink rear suspension presents a scope of improvement here as the body
control is not what a driver or passenger would like.
Given a “thumbs up” in this, its features say all about the safety considerations. Stability, six airbags,
traction, anti-lock brakes, EBD, control systems for hill decent, reversing sensors and roll-over.
The car remains a favourite for the buyers where value for money is thought about. Looks might not be
that appealing if you are looking at fresher faces (from Hyundai cars as well as other brands) out of which
you can make choices but factors like safety, space and power might prove to be decisive.
