All-new Storm Edge boasts cutting-edge capabilities

HYUNDAI vehicle sales have steadily increased in Fiji — growing from below 10 per cent several years ago to a strong 22.4 per cent market share in 2012, making it Fiji's number two genuine automotive franchise.

The recognition was a timely fitting as Carpenters Motors launched the all-new 2013 "Storm Edge" design Hyundai Santa Fe at the Novotel Convention Centre in Lami last night. Carpenters Motors general manager Roger Powell said the launch was an achievement the company and Hyundai were proud of.

"The all-new 2013 Santa Fe is expected to elevate the Hyundai brand to another level, in line with its "modern premium" image," Mr Powell said.

"We had six confirmed sales on those vehicles, sight unseen, so far and we eagerly look forward to many more to come.

"The all-new Santa Fe showcases the brand's cutting-edge capabilities through its 'fluidic sculpture' design and impressive fuel economy.

"It is a confident and highly capable crossover built for today's family."

The Santa Fe is available in four variants, with Mr Powell confirming two more variants would be introduced in February next year.

The vehicles are priced between $71,000 to $99,000 depending on the variants.
