2010 Hyundai Santa Fe beats competitors in terms of fuel consumption

The 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV equipped with 2.2L four-cylinder diesel engine has been recognised as the most fuel efficient mid-size Sport Utility Vehicle in Australia.

During the week long Global Green Challenge, which crosses the continent from Darwin to Adelaide, the Santa Fe achieved an outstanding fuel consumption of 5.1L/100km and beat all of its rivals, including Kia's new Sorento crossover.

According to hyundai Australia, after seven days of intense competition, the 2010 Hyundai Santa FE consumed a total of just 160L of diesel and leaved only 137 grams of CO2 per kilometer.

The 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe is equipped with Hyundai's latest diesel engine, which produces 197 horsepower and achieves EURO5 emission standards. It is mated to the all-new six-speed automatic gearbox, which helps the vehicle to achieve such impressive fuel consumption ratings as mentioned above.

But, this is not the very first "green competition" win for Hyundai brand in Australia. At the World Solar Challenge event two years ago, Hyundai also beat its competition with its brandnew i30 hatch and an astonishing 3.2L per 100 kilometers consumption. Under the hood, the i30 featured a 1.6L diesel engine from Hyundai, which is recognized as one of the best diesel engines in the segment.
