The introductory prices for the four variants, valid until end of June 2019 are Theta II 2.4 MPI Executive – *RM169,888, Theta II 2.4 MPI Premium – *RM189,888, R 2.2 CRDi Executive – *RM191,888 and R 2.2 CRDi Premium – *RM211,888.

The all-new Santa Fe is available in two engine options, namely the Theta II 2.4 MPI Petrol engine and R 2.2 CRDi Diesel engine. Both engine types are offered with Executive and Premium variants.  The Theta II 2.4 MPI that is mated to a 6-Speed Auto Transmission, produces a maximum power of 172PS at 6,000rpm and a maximum torque of 225Nm at 4,000rpm.
