The car is brought in the country as a Completely Built Unit(CBU) which accounts for a higher cost than the rest in the Rs.20-25 lakh SUV segment. The car’s next generation model was shown off by the company a while ago and the same has been caught testing in India, indicating towards an impending launch in the country. The car was showcased at the New York Motor Show in 2012 and the same got launched in a number of markets after that. India will be the latest country to get the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe.

  1. I own a 2014 Santa FE in Dubai. A 3.3L full option GLS grade. Amazing features and value for money.
    Hope the Indian Diesel version carries the same features. Electrically operated parking brake with Auto brake hold feature will be an advantage for the busy bumper to bumper traffic situations. The 6 speed Auto transmission is as smooth as silk.
    Although it would be pricey in India but its worth investing.
    Keep the momentum HYUNDAI….
