Both offer a five-speed manual gearbox but an automatic is available on the bigger engine. The fastest engine is the 1.2-litre and can achieve 0-62mph in 12.1 seconds. The most efficient model is the 1.0-litre SE Blue. It benefits from a stop/start system and cuts emissions to 93g/km of CO2. It also achieves 70.6mpg.

You can upgrade to a four-speaker sound system that comes with Bluetooth connection, voice recognition and remote controls on the steering wheel. You can also opt for a Driver Assist Pack which features lane departure and forward collision warnings.
In terms of space, there is quite a bit for a small car. It has a 252-litre boot space with the rear seats in place. It extends to 1,046-litres if you fold the rear seats down. Both these sizes are some of the biggest in its class. That said, if you have a spare wheel then the boot space does shrink to 218-litres and 1,012-litres with the seats down.

Hyundai Santa Fe
The Santa Fe is the 4×4 of the Hyundai family and competes with the likes of the Honda CR-V and the Mazda CX-5. It is hugely practical, looks good and it also has the option of seven seats. There is just one engine available, the 194bhp 2.2-litre CRD diesel, of which comes in either manual or automatic.
The engine is pretty impressive, and if you pair it with a six-speed manual then you get from 0-60mph in just 9.8 seconds. Depending on the drivetrain depends on how much CO2 it emits. If you opt for a six-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel-drive then the Santa Fe achieves 47.9mpg and emits 155g/km of CO2. The six-speed manual gearbox with four-wheel drive achieves 47.9mpg but emits slightly more at 159g/km of CO2. The automatic gearbox in the 4×4 guise achieves 41.5mpg and emits 178g/km of CO2.
The trim levels are the same as all the other Hyundai models and the Premium model comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, chrome exterior highlights, roof rails and privacy glass as well as leather seat facings, a touchscreen infotainment system and cruise and climate control. The Premium SE version gets bigger wheels, a panoramic roof, blind spot detection and park assist and rear cross traffic alert.
In terms of space, you get 585-litres of boot space in the five seat model. This extends to 1,680-litres if you fold the rear seats down. On the seven seater then this is reduced to 516-litres and 1,615-litres with the seats folded down. The seats can be folded in a 60:40 split and can also slide back and forth for easier access. The Santa Fe can also tow 750kg unbraked or 2,500kg braked. You can also buy the Trailer Stability Assist system. This improves towing safety by limiting torque and braking individual wheels when necessary.
If you were to lease the Santa Fe then you will be looking at upwards of £329 a month for an entry level model on a Personal Contract Hire. On a Business Contract Hire then you will be looking at upwards of £275 a month. For a top of the range model then you will be looking at upwards of £570 a month on a Personal Contract Hire and upwards of £480 a month on a Business Contract Hire.
Hopefully this has given you an idea of the type of Hyundai models on the market today. As we said, these are a guide and the prices are subject to change. Therefore, we recommend contacting an experienced vehicle broker who will be able to find you the best deals and negotiate the best price for your situation.
