What’s new with the Hyundai Santa Fe?

Well, it was updated last year with a cleaner and more powerful diesel engine, high-tech safety features and refreshed styling to bring it in line with Hyundai’s more recent designs.

As before, the big SUV is available in five- and seven-seat versions. We’re testing the range-topping Premium SE Auto with seven seats.

It’s well-equipped, but so it should be with a price-tag of £39,000! Hyundai’s origins as a budget brand have well and truly been left behind.

Can the Santa Fe justify its price? It has a lot of standard kit, but is it enough to stand comparison with the Land Rover Discovery Sport? And, most importantly, how well does the Santa Fe tow big caravans?
