It’s one of many almost forgotten cars in an almost forgotten segment. Medium passenger cars are being outsold dramatically by small cars and all forms of SUV’s.

This is a review on just receiving the 2016 Highlander(DM3) Santa Fe in April 2016 and only having just done the 1,500K first service. I have had this vehicle for just over one month now and it has taken this long to familiarise myself with all the features and its driving ability on both residential, highway and rutted dirt roads...

2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander CRDi (4x4) Review

After owning our 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Series 2 for a few months now, I feel that I'm in a good position to write an owners review on the pros and cons of this car. With approximately 6,500 km's on the clock, and almost due for it's first scheduled service, I've been extremely happy with the car and there's only been one or 2 minor issues of note...

The Hyundai i20 Active appealed to me, as it appeared to be built well, and it was awarded a five star safety rating.
