Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Hyundai will enter a pair of 2010 Santa Fe SUVs into the 2009 Global Green Challenge. The goal is to prove the new unit's environmentally friendly approach and to do that, Hyundai would like to highlight its new R turbo diesel engine fitted on the Santa Fe SUVs.

In a release, Kevin McCann, Hyundai Australia sales and marketing director said that Hyundai will demonstrate how significant fuel economy savings can be made by driving a latest generation AWD seven-seat SUV.

Hyundai expects that the tests will be done in the real world and will prove the savings and the reduced emissions associated with the SUVs.

On Oct. 24, the Santa Fe Down Under will be introduced. The two cars will have to travel the distance between Darwin and Adelaide in six days, a total of 3,020 km (1,870 miles). Motoring expert John Cadogan, is slated to supervise.

The engines that will be fitted on the two SUVs will be the 2.2l CRDi turbo, which develops 197 horsepower and 422 Nm of torque between 1,800 and 2,500 rpm.

The engine of the SUV, when mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, accelerates from zero to 60 in 9.5 seconds while top speed is at 190 km/h (118 mph).
