Called the Sante Fe Team Wiggins Edition, just 500 examples will initially be available in July, each majoring on design and technology with subtle added detailing and high levels of the latest equipment.
Based on the Premium SE, the Team Wiggins Edition models will feature Dynamic Bending Lights, a Panoramic Sunroof, a Smart Electric Tailgate, Smart Parking Assist, Ventilated Front Seats and Smart High Beam as standard.
In addition Wiggins Edition models add subtle Team Wiggins badges on the front wings Side Bar Sport running bars and all-new 19-inch alloy wheels sitting on 235/55 R19 tyres and colored in Dark Gunmetal. The Santa Fe special edition extras will not come with an inflated price tag though as the Team Wiggins Edition will cost 35,995 pounds for the 7 seat 2.2 CRDi 4WD Manual, 705 pounds less than the Premium SE. An automatic gearbox version will be priced at 38,295 pounds. Hyundai’s 200PS 2.2-liter CRDi diesel will be the sole engine offered for the Team Wiggins Edition.
David Pugh, Hyundai’s marketing director said, “We’re proud to be supporting Team Wiggins this year. Sir Bradley is one of Britain’s sporting icons and his team is innovative, dedicated and full of perseverance. We share that ethos at Hyundai and it’s great to be able to celebrate this successful partnership by issuing a desirable twist on one of our own icons, the flagship Santa Fe.”
“The Team Wiggins Edition is packed full of equipment, looks the part but crucially offers great value too. Buyers will need to be quick to snap up the 500-car run,” he added.
Customers will be able to choose from five limited body colors for the Hyundai Santa Fe limited edition: a new pearl-effect White Crystal, solid Creamy White, metallic Titanium Silver, metallic Ocean View and pearl-effect Phantom Black.
