Look at the updates of crossover Hyundai Santa Fe

Look at the updates of crossover Hyundai Santa Fe

Robert Yessenov, 12 hours ago. Photo Hyundai In our market the updated Santa Fe with the Premium console is all-wheel drive only. A choice of three power units ― a 2.4 petrol engine (171 HP) paired with a six-speed «mechanics» or automatic transmission and 200-horsepower turbodiesel 2.2 CRDi with automatic transmission. In Russia, as you know, two woes. The same in dorestaylingovyh crossover Hyundai Santa Fe. For his dandified exterior, mediocre suspension, which allows for frequent breakdowns and the build-up on the irregularities. In addition, the body of the SUV can barely support U.S. frontal crash test IIHS with 25 percent overlap: instead of the highest rating Top Safety Pick+ is the only triple with a minus. In short, the work plan for updating the model draw itself. Moreover, the related Kia Sorento Prime was the infamous crash test better.

Prices vary from 1 000 to 2 699 224 000. Their growth by 25 000-214 000 rubles in relation to the pre-reform machine that is sold concurrently, partly justified by the richer models. To distinguish the updated crossover on revised headlamps-the lamps may only familiar with the model.

Power rack design has been optimized: changed the attachment point of the doors, strengthened the spars. On the updated car, a system avtotormozami (for lack of a predecessor also lost in the rating of the security), in addition, the crossover has learned to follow the lane, monitoring blind spots and to automatically switch a headlight on near, and back again. Multimedia complex has got better navigation system and «music» Infinity, has acquired the adaptable cruise control. All this prompted the creators of the award Santa Fe console Premium.

Among the new things of the interior improved seat upholstery of beige leather and strange pad above the glove compartment lid, stylized carbon fiber.

Landing in front is still high and tall drivers can’t pull the wheel in whatever way you want. Rear space and comfort and adjustable seats: the range of longitudinal settings increased by 15 mm.

For us the main thing is that after upgrading Santa Fe rides a little better than before. The SUV continues to be meticulously recounts irregularities, collecting all the small change, but energy suspension has clearly increased. I specifically chose the broken section and sped through it quite so shamelessly, but passive dampers are never closed on the compression buffers. Vertical swinging of the body has disappeared, although braking on the Santa Fe unnecessarily nodding and acceleration on deep squats on the rear axle.

On the move, though less than before, to the degree felt the vibration of unsprung mass. Including so of 19-inch wheels-pack-Advanced (pictured) should be abandoned in favor of 18-inch.

With the familiar 2.2 turbodiesel, which after recalibration has added three power and four Newton-meters (force to 200 and 440 N•m), Santa Fe gathering «passport» with a hundred seats for 9.6 S. But more impressive acceleration with stroke: 171-horsepower gasoline engine 2.4 (about 12 to a hundred) against this background, it is time to call stunted and leave in oblivion. This diesel is quiet and leprozorij: I came up with about 7.7 l/100 km on the highway and about 10.8 in the city.

The changes affected the headlights, taillights and grille. Head lights ― halogen, for an extra charge ― with xenon dipped beam. To consider Santa Fe in this brand video. It’s funny because in the Korean market, the model attachment Prime, as Russian Kia Sorento.

A six-speed «automatic» sometimes change first gear to second with the push, but generally gets along with the engine. The speed of transmission and ease of traction control and enough in normal mode, good when you need box able at once to go down a few steps. But if the Drive Mode switch to engage Sport mode, «automatic» will be less likely to use higher gears, more willing to Unscrew the lower, and the reaction gas will worsen. In addition, in the «Sport» grows, the effort on the steering wheel. Alas ― no semantic load: the already «synthetic» wheel seems to be caught in some slush. To return to normal mode only the wheel, that’s why Santa Fe Sport largely irrelevant.

On corner entry it seems that the steered wheels are hanging in the air and nothing happens. Do not inspire confidence and fuzzy reactions at braking: stopping, usually on time, but the force on the pedals every time you have to guess.

Adaptive cruise control available on top models, safely supports the set distance and speed gradually slows down, if someone is wedged between you and the car ahead. However, in case the electronics stop the machine slows down non-linear, and even if you stopped just for a moment, demands to restart, press the accelerator or press on the steering wheel. Advanced systems retain the ability to self start after short stops. In the city to constantly urge Hyundai inconvenient, but for the track its cruising abilities enough.

Navigation, Infinity audio system, adaptive cruise control, system avtotormozami and tracking road markings are only available in the top set with High-Tech. And the cameras of the circular review, avtoparkovschik and 19-inch wheels is the Advanced package for an additional 75 thousand rubles.

If alteration of a body under Sante Fe crash tests the IIHS due to the importance of the U.S. market for Hyundai, the reconfigured chassis is already the contribution of those European and Russian buyers, who cannot get the combination of price, design and equipment. Do not understand how you can adjust the suspension if based on subsequent upgrades?

The Santa Fe is excellent insulation ― passes even a gap-toothed suburban asphalt, not that aerodynamic noise from the incoming air.

Why not give the new Hyundai riding performance required from birth, without waiting for the next blow with a rake? Some errors, of course, is encouraging, but it would be nice if the Koreans tried these errors to start to avoid. As for pretentious additives Premium in the title, in order to avoid sarcasm, let’s take it not as a label but as a positive attitude is to remember where Hyundai seeks.

Platform current Santa Fe used a number of models of the concern Hyundai-KIA. McPherson front suspension with a compact stretcher — as i40. Rear mnogoryichazhka c increased silent-blocks — as in past Sorento last years. Instead of a developed rear sub frame in front-wheel version of the installed cross member with fewer points of attachment. The update brought Santa Fe retuned dampers and new silent blocks.

Due to an increase of one third share of high strength steels curb weight of the Santa Fe in comparison with the predecessor decreased by the hundredweight, and the body was 15% stiffer in torsion. Modernization according to the results of crash test with 25 percent overlap has affected the power structure of the front end, in particular rails and fixing points of the door.

Aluminum petrol «four» 2.4 with the Phaser on the intake (left) after upgrading develops 171 HP vs. 175 earlier. Her story began in 2004 with the generation NF Sonata and continued with the project World Engine and use the companies of Mitsubishi and Chrysler. Familiar from the pre-reform Santa Fe 2.2 CRDi turbo diesel with variable geometry guide vanes and turbine balancing shaft 200 and develops a force of 440 N•m against former and 197 436. The piezo injectors of the third generation with a working pressure up to 1800 bar, plastic (for weight reduction) valve cover and intake manifold. In Russia, this engine meets the Euro-4 norms, and in Europe, supplemented by diesel particulate filter, Euro-5.

In the drive the rear wheels — the constant electro-hydraulic clutch Dynamax, crossovers ix35 and Sorento. The Koreans chose the site of the company Magna electromagnetic, as in Santa Fe last generation, for the ability to digest a higher torque at a higher lifespan. The electric motor in the hydraulic pump drive provides a performance benefit.

Behind the scenes

Where, how not in Moscow to test the performance of electronic helpers? No markings — not working and tracking system. But who would have thought on the Third ring road we will meet camouflaged Audi Q5 the new generation?
