sgCarMart – No prizes for the guessing the right answer - the Hyundai Santa Fe is indeed named after the capital of the U.S. state of New Mexico, which explains why its name may sound a little Spanish-Mexican.
The first mid-sized Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) from the Korean marque was introduced here in 2003 with a 2.4-litre six-cylinder engine.
Then in 2006, it was reintroduced with a new and larger 2.7-litre V6 engine but it was hardly popular due to its thirst for fuel. Things were better in 2010 when Hyundai updated the Santa Fe with a new powerplant - a 2.4-litre direct-injection engine, shared with its cousin - the Kia Sorento.
Unveiled at the 2012 New York Auto Show, the third generation Santa Fe is another chapter in the company's next generation styling language, dubbed 'Fluidic Precision', which has driven the company's most recent product line revisions such as the i45 as well as forthcoming models.
The all new Santa Fe also represents a new design concept called 'Storm Edge', which apparently captures strong and dynamic images created by nature during the formation of a storm.
