This vehicle is probably the best kept secret on Australian roads. It does everything seamlessly and without fuss.
The handling is more than adequate, given it spends the majority of its time on harsh country roads; 60% tar 40% gravel, and rough bush tracks also.
First car we have had that is truly dust proof and very very quiet. Seats and appointments are all that one could wish for. Visibility is excellent and adds to passive safety.
The leather seats are comfortable, and over distances averaging 400 KM each trip, one leaves the vehicle with no neck aches etc.
Power & economy at posted speed limits with air con going full blast (OAT in the mid 40 c) averages 7.712 L/100km.
City stop start driving about 10 l/100 km (we have to keep expense logs)
Only niggles after driving the same model with a 6 cylinder motor is the 2.4 is under braked compared to that model.
For night driving, longer range lights to pick up the abundant wildlife in the bush adds to safety. However, the lights are still safe.
The 4 speed auto could do with the same auto as in the 6, which is 5 speed.
A diesel option for us who do very high miles would make this car perfect, and perhaps even more economical and a bit "greener"
But one has to think hard to find a fault with this vehicle. When first heard the employer was supplying a Hyundai, my initial thought was Oh no! Cheap Korean rubbish. Now a convert; it is better and more reliable than any other vehicle in our fleets (over 300 vehicles). This thing is a delight in every way.
