HYUNDAI SANTA FE ACTIVE
You miss out on Mazda’s hi-tech safety but you get a ripper 2.2-litre turbo diesel, all-wheel drive and five-year/ unlimited km warranty. Potent, thirsty 199kW 3.3-litre V6, six-speed auto and frontwheel drive. No hi-tech safety but the seven-year/ unlimited km warranty is a deal maker.
TOYOTA KLUGER GX
Runs a 210kW 3.5-litre V6 — it goes but likes a drink. Big, comfortable and bulletproof. No hi-tech safety. Low servicing costs, three-year/100,000km warranty.
