Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 41 - 47 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Hyundai Santa Fe running costs are fairly low considering the size of car we’re dealing with. The cheapest version is the two-wheel-drive manual model, which emits 155g/km and is capable of a claimed 47.9mpg on the combined cycle. Hyundai has worked closely with Thatcham to ensure insurance premiums are very low, with some versions falling into group 18E.

The five-year transferable triple care package also helps with running costs in a big way, offering an unlimited mileage warranty alongside roadside assistance and free vehicle health checks for five years.

Hyundai Santa Fe emissions aren’t the lowest in the world but they’re passable for a large 4×4. The cleanest version is the two-wheel-drive model, which with the manual gearbox emits 145g/km of carbon dioxide.

Hyundai Santa Fe reliability shouldn’t be a major issue, especially since there’s the Hyundai Five Year Triple Care package to keep the car running well. The old model didn’t suffer much in the way of recalls, so the new car shouldn’t spring any unexpected surprises.
