Hyundai Santa Fe 2020 review: V6 Highlander
Hyundai has spread the V6 petrol love all across the Santa Fe range, including the previously diesel-only Highlander. You gain smooth power but lose all-wheel drive. Does it matter?

The GT-Line sits at the top of the Kia Sorento range with its list price of $60,070 for the petrol variant and $63,070 for the diesel version.
Coming standard on the GT-Line are 20-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, Nappa leather seats (heated front and second row), a 10.25-inch display and also sat nav, dual-zone climate, proximity key with push-button start, power tailgate, privacy glass, LED tail-lights and remote engine start. There’s also a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, mood lighting, 12-speaker Bose sound system, head-up display, wireless phone charger and a panoramic sunroof.
As with the previous Sorento there’s a choice of a 3.5-litre petrol V6 or a turbo-diesel four-cylinder. Essentially, they are the same engines from the previous model and the outputs are almost unchanged with the diesel making 148kW/440Nm, while the petrol produces 206kW/336Nm.
All grades come with AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection, rear cross-traffic alert and blind spot collision avoidance and then the GT-Line also has blind spot view monitor which shows the view behind you on whichever side you’re indicating towards.
