2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander CRDi (4x4) Review

I purchased my Sante Fe Highlander 8 weeks ago and have so far traveled 4,500kms taking in a good mix of country roads and city driving. The Sante Fe was purchased after considering SUV's, regular sedans and wagons. I own a small pop top caravan with an all up weight of 1420kg and a towball down weight of 120kg and I have a preference for diesel engines due to the torque they produce and the economy when towing...

Just put new Yokohama's on after 60k' on the original Kumo's, which were only swapped front to back once...
