Tested: 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe CRDi

The big temptation

Many years ago our automotive landscape was slightly less crowded and infinitely less confusing. Big saloons were balanced with small hatchbacks and boxy Kombis stood alongside rustic 4×4’s. German, British and American cars were the order of the day and Japanese products were rudely pointed and laughed at.

Maar by sommige van ons ouer lesers mag daar tog noue bande met Korea bestaan omdat hulle pa’s of oupa’s in 1950 lede van die “Vlieënde Cheetahs” was wat daar saam met die Amerikaanse Lugmag teen die Kommunistiese Noord-Korea geveg het.

Méér as net ‘n papiertier uit die Ooste

Teen hierdie tyd het ons al begin gewoond raak aan Hyundai se nuwe neiging om hulle motors nommers eerder as name te gee. Dis nogal jammer want die Getz en Elantra en Atoz het vir baie mense al ‘n deel van hulle daaglikse woordeskat geword. Maar mense is aanpasbaar en syfers is seker daar om te bly!
