Hyundai Australia has upped the pricing of the Santa Fe large SUV for the second time in three months.
Prices went up $550 across the board in March, and they’ve jumped between $440 and $610 this month. As a result, the Santa Fe line-up now stretches from $43,990 to $61,660 plus on-road costs (see full pricing table below).
Speaking to CarsGuide, a Hyundai Australia spokesperson confirmed no changes have been made to standard specification, with the price rises influenced by exchange-rate pressures.
As such, the Mazda CX-9 rival is still available in three grades: entry-level Active, mid-range Elite and flagship Highlander.
A 206kW/336Nm 3.5-litre naturally aspirated V6 petrol engine is offered across the range, and so too is a 147kW/440Nm 2.2-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder unit.
The former is front-wheel drive, while the latter is all-wheel drive, but both are mated to an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission.
As per this report, the current Santa Fe will soon be replaced by a dramatic new model, with Hyundai issuing a pair of teaser images last week ahead of its Australian launch late this year.
