Hyundai releases Santa Fe special edition
Extra equipment for $1500 price premium with Hyundai Santa Fe ‘Trail’ diesel
17 Apr 2012
HYUNDAI Australia has introduced a special edition of its Santa Fe SUV called the ‘Trail’, which costs $1500 more than the all-wheel-drive SLX turbo-diesel on which it is based but comes with extra entertainment and safety features.
Priced from $39,590 (plus ORCs) for the manual and $41,590 for the auto, the Santa Fe Trail gains a rear-view camera with the interior mirror display, a roof-mounted entertainment screen for rear-seat passengers, leather interior features, tinted rear windows and 18-inch alloy wheels.
In addition to the alloy wheels, the exterior is enhanced with the addition of front and rear skid plates, chrome tailgate garnish, black roof racks and a ‘Trail’ badge on the rear tailgate.
The remote control rear entertainment system plays DVD movies, audio CDs and MP3 compilations, is compatible for Sony Playstation and Nintendo Gameboy, and comes with two sets of headphones.
Although the seats are covered in a mix of genuine and fake leather, both the steering wheel and transmission shift knob are wrapped in pure leather.
The Hyundai Santa Fe Trail is not available in two-wheel-drive form or with the petrol V6 engine, only with the 2.2-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder that produces 145kW of power and 436Nm of torque, driving through six-speed manual or automatic transmissions.
Like all Santa Fe models, it has a five-star crash safety rating and comes with eight airbags, ESC, roll-over sensors, front and rear fog lights.
It is on sale now and is available in white, black, grey, silver and blue.
An all-new third-generation Santa Fe was unveiled at the New York motor show two weeks ago and will be launched in Australia later this year.
Hyundai Australia will only offer the new model with a standard wheelbase, not the new long-wheelbase version shown in New York, which will not be produced in right-hand drive.
