Hi Duncan. I am very impressed with these vehicles. I have a customer with one purchased in may last year. It is the 2.2L CRD. He did the first 15000K with a 17ft Coromal poptop behind and it did it effortlessly. ( He had a Suby outback prior to it) He is now up to 30000K and has done another 5000K of that with the van as well. It is an auto and is a pleasure to drive. Very comfortable seating and a nice rideing suspension. I think fuel is around 14L/100 with the van on. If they bring out a Prado size one I'll be looking seriously. Bob.

Thanks Bob - the 2010 looks bigger but not sure if so. Also its a new engine that has great efficiency. And the Manual is 2500kg Tow braked v Auto 2000kg.

A mate has the Kia Sorrento, the clone of the Santa Fe. Same mechanicals.

He is in love with it I think! Great economy, power and comfort.

Tows a 2 tonne van with it, gets about 11 or 12 Litres/100ks

Do they really have the same mechanicals? I didn't realise that.

Yep, identical apparently, gearbox ratios are all the same.

Actually, have a look at the gear ratios they are a bit strange, there is no direct 1 to 1 ratio??

Also the final drive ratios look strange. There is a slight difference between the Kia and the Hyundai in the final drive


Kia Sorento gear ratios

I picked up mine (Santa Fe 2.2 diesel manual) about 4 weeks ago. Haven't towed yet but so far its been great.

Not sure about the 2,500kg tow capacity, my book, and the web site, seem to indicate 2,000kg, auto and manual.

Sorento is 2500 for the manual 2000 for the auto

Is it true that also the engines and drivetrain are "old model" Mitsubishi/Pajero made under licence. Someone told me ages ago parts were interchangeable, can't remember the exact details.

The engines I believe are now made by Hyundai...same reason the Sorrento is identical in engines etc, because Hyundai are a majority owner of Kia..

The Terracan was "loosely" based on some mechanicals "borrowed" from Mitsubishi, but not the diesel engine ( a Motor Morini ).......but surprisingly hardly any parts were interchangeable !!....only ones I knew about were rear springs !!

We've got an '09 Sante Fe Diesel and it's fantastic. Plenty of power. I know the Kia and the Hyundai share the same engine, but not sure what else. I was under the impression that it was a Hyundai designed engine, and that they had spent millions developing it.

I have 2010 Santa Fe and yes the CRDi engine (using Bosch's latest Gen 3 Direct Injection) and new 6 speed auto is entirely Hyundai now. With 145 KW and 436 Nm torque from 1800 rpm, I can tell you it's a real treat to drive!

Economy wise, it consistently returns 12.5 to 13.5 L/100 when towing my caravan at highway speeds. That's not too shabby pulling a combined 4+ ton from a 2.2ltr turbo diesel. Otherwise, it's around 8.6 L/100 around town without the van.

The one let down is the towing capacity at 2 tons and low ball weight at only 150kg. However, I am now reading that Hyundai are re-introducing their Trek-n-Tow package in October for this new R Series Santa.
