|Santa Fe wins 2020 Drive Large SUV of the Year
The Hyundai Santa Fe range has won 2020 Drive Large SUV of the Year.
The award is the second consecutive Car of the Year Award for the Santa Fe in the hugely popular and ultra-competitive SUV segment.
Against strong competition from newcomers Skoda Kodiaq and U.S.-focused Holden Acadia, the Santa Fe also out-performed other finalists such as the Toyota Prado, Ford Everest, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and Isuzu MU-X.
Santa Fe boasts Hyundai’s SmartSense™ suite as standard, incorporating forward collision-avoidance assist among an array of active safety technologies, as well as an advanced multimedia system featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
Also standard across the range are a rear park assist system with rear view camera, walk-in switch for easy third-row access, rear air-conditioning controls, roof rails and alloy wheels, starting from $43,000 MLP for Santa Fe Active, with the peace of mind of Hyundai’s five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty.
Santa Fe is the second Hyundai SUV winner in the 2020 Drive awards, following on from last week’s announcement of Kona as the 2020 Drive Small SUV of the Year.
Drive’s 2020 Car of the Year saw a 10-strong expert judging panel compare more than 100 cars across 20 categories, over an exhaustive week of assessment.
