The 2012 model of Hyundai Santa Fe has been spotted in South Korea. The popular crossover will be replaced with a more agressively styled model, in-line with current Hyundai design trend. The CUV is said to adopt Tuscon styling cues, which should make it to be one of the most stylish CUV around.
In Malaysia, the latest Santa Fe creates quite a buzz when the facelifted model gained an updated turbo-diesel engine which produced 442 Nm of torque. The torque figure alone is worth a lot of conversation in the office and mamak. So a capable diesel engine plus stylish body with 7 seater space to boot, what's more could one ask for!
The CUV is slated to make an appearance in 2012 LA motorshow, and will probably go on sale at the middle of that year as 2013 MY. For Malaysian market, our wait might be longer than the US as Hyundai typically take some time to arrive here. The new Elantra is said to be coming soon. It has recently reached Singapore show. For over excited new Elantra fans, heads off to Singapore Car Mart to see how the new-age Hyundai fares against competition.
