Hyundai will shortly update the Santa Fe - prices will rise, but there is a massive hike in equipment levels - in Highlander. So, if you’re in the market for a high-quality seven-seat SUV, put down your credit card, and listen up.
The Hyundai Tucson was released in May 2015, spanning the price range $30,490 to $45,490 in Australia (not including on-road costs). The new Tucson replaces the ageing ix35 - and is light years ahead in terms of its execution overall - and while two of the powertrains carry forward, there's a new 1.6 turbo petrol engine shoehorned straight in from Veloster - it's a cracker.
The Hyundai i30 is the ‘other’ popular small car in Australia. Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla fight it out - a photo-finish for first place in sales - but i30 is third, and counting, among cars. The Hyundai i30 range was upgraded with new specification grades plus styling and powertrain tweaks in January 2015.
The Toyota Hilux ute is the top-selling ute in Australia. Some months, one month in five, on average, it’s the top-selling vehicle in the entire country. (We love our utes.) This is the first all-new Hilux for a decade.
The all-new Renault Trafic is an exciting entrant in the van space. It offers a real point of difference to the two established big players - especially for the owner-operator type who isn't wholly buying the vehicle like an accountant.
Mitsubishi has been on a bit of a product offensive lately. Clawing their way out of the cold, or dying in the attempt. First the facelifted Outlander and now an all-new Mitsubishi Triton 4X4 Ute. Does it have the goods to take on Australia’s best utes?
This latest Subaru Liberty is a real step forward - especially on the aesthetic front. Tragically, though, the 2015 Subaru Liberty is looking for love in a world infatuated with SUVs. And the reality there is that SUVs seem sexy but they are often a dumb choice objectively.
I'm looking at the new Land Rover Discovery Sport: Is it worth the money, and is it safe (unlike Land Rover's Range Rover Evoque). Should I lean instead towards a Hyundai Sante Fe for value?
All SUVs are not created equal on the crashworthiness front. So how does the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe hope to compete with premium brands like Jeep, Audi and Land Rover? The answer might shock you. The 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe really does deliver on safety. It gets five stars - independently determined by ANCAP. The books, thankfully, can not be cooked on five-star crashworthiness - as some other SUV manufacturers have discovered. You won’t believe which vehicles fail to measure up.
In this review: The 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander versus key competitors. Maybe - just maybe - an upstart from South Korea can be authentically David, against Goliaths from Japan and Europe. If you want upmarket family transport, good value, reasonable performance and seven seats - you need to put the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander on your list.
This review is aimed at you if you’re in the market now, thinking about buying a seven-seat SUV, but you’re worried about the brand. Is Hyundai’s transformation from cheap to desirable just baseless marketing spin, or is this concept built on a foundation of substance?
