Ahead of the release of an all-new Hyundai Santa Fe late this year, a special edition of the current Hyundai Santa Fe has arrived in Australia. As well a high levels of performance and efficiency, the seven-seat Santa Fe ‘Trail’ benefits from a raft of new features including new entertainment and safety equipment.

When it comes to safety technology, the Santa Fe Trail ups the ante with the addition of a rear-view camera featuring electro-chromatic mirror display. Operating with a rear-mounted system, the camera tracks the path of the vehicle when reverse gear is engaged and relays the image to the rear-view mirror for instant driver vision.

For rear seat passengers a roof-mounted entertainment system will provide endless hours of entertainment playing DVD movies, audio CDs and MP3 compilations. This versatile unit is also Sony Playstation™ and Nintendo™ Gameboy compatible, and comes complete with two sets of headphones and a remote control.

Adding extra appeal for discerning customers, the Hyundai Santa Fe ‘Trail’ features leather/leatherette seating, complimented with leather wrapped steering wheel and transmission shift knob. Assisting to reduce heat ingress and providing a more restful cabin-space, privacy glass becomes standard on all rear windows.

The exterior of Santa Fe Trail, with streamlined front and rear skid plates, chrome tailgate garnish, and black finish roof racks, features 18” alloy wheels to complete its appearance packaging. A signature badge adorns the tailgate.

The Santa Fe Trail comes standard with a suite of active and passive safety features, earning it the maximum crash performance 5-star ANCAP rating. Standard across the range are Electronic Stability Control (ESC) which incorporates a Traction Control System (TCS), driver and front passenger airbags, dual side front (thorax) airbags and front and rear passenger side curtain airbags (which extend to the third row). Roll-over sensors are also standard, whilst further safety features include rear park assist, front and rear fog lamps, and cruise control with steering mounted fingertip controls.

The Santa Fe Trail is available only in All-Wheel Drive (AWD) matched a powerful and economical R-series 2.2-litre CRDi diesel engine, and is available in six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions.
