New Hyundai Santa Fe 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Mazda CX-9-rivalling SUV gets more expensive

Hyundai Australia has increased the pricing and of its current-generation Santa Fe large SUV.

Specifically, all variants of the Mazda CX-9 rival are $550 more expensive.

A Hyundai Australia spokesperson told CarsGuide the company has “been absorbing exchange-rate pressures for some time but has now been forced to increase prices”.

As such, the Santa Fe now ranges in price from $43,500 to $61,050 plus on-road costs (see full pricing table below), with its specification unchanged.

The Santa Fe 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.
