2015 Hawtai Santa Fe.jpg

Hawtai Santa Fe (華泰 新聖達菲/华泰 新圣达菲)/Hawtai Santa Fe 5. 2014 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door SUV. F/F, 1498 cm³ petrol, 1991 cm³ diesel (I4 DOHC). Second-generation (as far as Hawtai was concerned) Santa Fe departed from the original Korean licensed model, joining the fast-growing compact SUV market. Quite a tidy design, thankfully sharing nothing with Hawtai’s “home-made Cayenne” Boliger, the source of amusement even in China. Reasonably good materials inside, with eight-inch screen in the centre of the dashboard its highlight; the screen contents synced with both Apple and Android devices. Smaller, turbo petrol unit shared with Zotye T600, with turbocharger kicking in over 2,000 rpm for decent performance. Ride not the best, and less storage space than expected. Renamed Santa Fe 5 when the larger Santa Fe 7 was launched.

Manufacturing location: Rongcheng, Shandong, China

Marque: Hawtai | Model: Hawtai Santa Fe | Predecessor: Hyundai Santa Fe (SM)
