The previous Hyundai Santa Fe was imported into China and some 20% more expensive. It was however already sold via the Beijing-Hyundai dealer network. The 2.4 is a rather old but very cheap engine, output is 189hp, mated to a 6-speed automatic. The 2.0 turbo poops out a much better 245hp and comes with the same 6-speed auto. There are no manuals available anymore.

    why you still mess different segments ?
    CRV and Tiguan are not for Santa Fe segment Rav 4 and IX35 are the competitors , unless we talked is about prices and not about segments

    The Hyundai Santa Fe does not compete with the Hyundai ix35, as they are both made by Hyundai, and it would not make sense to steal sales from other vehicles that you make.

    Dash not one of Hyundai’s better efforts. Exterior is very good though, if a little bit too much black plastic running along the bottom of the car.
