Hyundai Santa Fe Kicks some major Ass in the safety test !
by Arpit R
The new Hyundai Santa Fe came out as the best-in-class, making it one of the safest vehicles ever tested & the best in the ‘Large Off-Road 4×4’ segment , tested in 2012 By Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) – ahead of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class which starts at around 57 Lakhs for the ML250 , the V6 ML350 is way more expensive & New Range Rover which costs a whooping 1.72crores
The Santa Fe scored 96% in adult occupant protection and scored full marks in the side barrier test.
In the child occupant and safety assist categories, the Hyundai SUV came out with 89% and 86% respectively
Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, commented, “Having the New Generation Santa Fe recommended by Euro NCAP as the safest car in its class demonstrates Hyundai’s commitment to the safety of its customers and other road users. The car’s inherent safety combined with low CO2, high levels of equipment and emotional design make the New Generation Santa Fe the complete package for European buyers.”
Also for the new Indian fans of the Santa Fe (lots more to join after reading this post) not to worry, this baby is India bound and will make its appearance some where around Mid 2013 and will cost about 23-25Lakhs !
