Torque (Singapore) - - NEWS -

Bring­ing an SUV to life is no easy task. In fact, it is mind-bog­gling to imag­ine a ve­hi­cle that be­gan as a sketch be­ing trans­formed into an ac­tual pro­duc­tion model. Hyundai, how­ever, makes this process seem effortless. It’s only when you take a closer look at the Kona, Tuc­son and Santa Fe that you re­alise the in­cred­i­ble ef­fort it took to de­sign and cre­ate three com­pelling, con­tem­po­rary SUVs that ad­dress the needs of var­i­ous life­styles.

Meet the Kona, a re­fresh­ing burst of life. The Kona is an ur­ban life­style cross­over that’s large in ver­sa­til­ity, huge on fun and enor­mous in per­son­al­ity. Armed with an inim­itable sense of style and a peppy sense of hu­mour, the Kona is the per­fect dance part­ner through the city’s vi­brant streets.

The Kona is avail­able with ei­ther an ef­fer­ves­cent tur­bocharged 1.0 litre man­ual and 2WD, or a gutsy tur­bocharged 1.6 litre au­to­matic and 4WD to pro­pel you en­thu­si­as­ti­cally up the road. When it’s time to pirou­ette around traf­fic and cor­ners, the Kona’s lovely agility and de­li­cious bal­ance, achieved with in­ge­nious en­gi­neer­ing, al­ways de­liver a great feel­ing. Mean­while, the Tuc­son is the fam­ily SUV that meets all your needs. To take your fam­ily out in the Tuc­son is to dis­cover a stylish 5-seater SUV suf­fused with moder­nity, space, com­fort, and no small amount of ath­leti­cism.

The Tuc­son is equipped with clever fea­tures like cruise con­trol and a rear cam­era with dy­namic guide­lines, which are avail­able through­out the model range. The Tuc­son treats you and your fam­ily to Hyundai’s er­gonomic and re­fined in­te­rior de­sign, while the kids en­joy rear air ven­ti­la­tion and a won­der­fully airy, light-filled cabin.

Hav­ing ar­rived at your des­ti­na­tion, you will find your­self steal­ing a look back at the Tuc­son’s grace­ful yet pow­er­ful flow­ing lines. At the top of Hyundai’s SUV range is the new Santa Fe, which greets you with a pow­er­ful and el­e­gant façade. Hyundai’s Cas­cad­ing Grille and Com­pos­ite Light de­sign de­liver an aes­thetic of class and for­ward-think­ing bold­ness.

Be­fore even reach­ing the door of the Santa Fe, you know this pre­mium 7-seater SUV is some­thing spe­cial, such is the con­fi­dence of its wide, strong and as­sured stance.

Inside, dis­cover a stun­ning re­la­tion­ship be­tween func­tion­al­ity and de­sign with a roomy, hor­i­zon­tal lay­out that en­hances vis­i­bil­ity. Let your fin­gers run over the lux­u­ri­ously trimmed sur­faces while nat­u­ral light streams in from the gen­er­ously large win­dows to com­plete an am­bi­ence of lovely com­fort.

Safety is a pri­or­ity in the Santa Fe. With the Hyundai SmartSense suite of ac­tive safety fea­tures and a bodyshell made im­mensely strong with ad­vanced ma­te­ri­als and con­struc­tion tech­niques, the Santa Fe pro­tects you and your fam­ily with the care of a guardian an­gel.

Out on the road, and even off it, Hyundai’s HTRAC tech­nol­ogy al­ways en­sures con­fi­dence-in­spir­ing sure­foot­ed­ness, along with ex­em­plary ride and han­dling.

Ver­sa­til­ity meets style and an en­dur­ing spirit of in­no­va­tion and in­tegrity. Hyundai’s SUV range stands ready to meet any chal­lenge while bring­ing a huge smile to your face.
