Fuel consumption on the manual has improved to 17.25 kmpl, while a new six-speed automatic achieves 16.65 kmpl with five seats, and 16.24 kmpl with seven seats. The alternator management system disengages when engine is not in use and helps in reducing fuel consumption and increasing the mileage.

Hyundai Santa Fe is the most popular SUV in the Hyundai product portfolio which is India-bound as well. Hyundai is planning to bring Santa Fe to India since long but had postponed its launch due to economic crisis and tough market conditions. Now the company plans to introduce the model soon in India as well.
