Five SUVs for Kiwi lifestyles.
FROM URBAN EXPLORER TO OFFROAD INTREPID
SUVs offer more space, versatility and control than any other vehicle on the road. It’s this combination of empowering characteristics that has led the Sports Utility Vehicle segment to become one of the most loved by Kiwis. With models ranging from mini-SUVs to rugged 4x4s, it can be difficult to work out which model has the features you really need, that’s why we’ve put together this handy guide to help you choose your next SUV.
VENUE small SUV
Hyundai Venue comes packed with the latest connectivity and safety features and is distinguished by its unique colour accents and funky interior design. This personality-packed SUV proves that bigger is not always better. Take a look inside and you'll be surprised at just how much we've managed to pack into the modern SUV.
All-new KONA compact SUV
Kona stays true to its SUV nature with roomy proportions. Meanwhile, the sharp connecting chrome line traces a contour that connects the beltline to the spoiler for an edgier look. Hyundai's most iconic, urban-centric SUV is now upscaled into a bigger, bolder, and more dynamic driving experience.
TUCSON medium SUV
The Tucson is an impressive medium sized SUV that can handle everything. Thanks to Tucson's cutting edge design, its irresistible look is one of a true all-rounder: sophistication, athleticism and durability. This is backed up by strong body rigidity and a range of new active safety features.
NEW PALISADE SERIES II
THE ULTIMATE IN LUXURY AND PRACTICALITY
A random turn down a different road can lead to a wonderful discovery. For those with a sense of adventure and who want to explore for themselves, we present our new Palisade Series II, the ultimate in luxury and sophistication.
With its bold design, Palisade is made for those who dare to be different, who want to break the daily routine and just get away from it all. From its innovative smart safety features to its class-leading spaciousness, Palisade delivers an endless stream of surprises.
Performance on road and off.
An SUV wouldn’t feel right without a powerful engine, but the reality is that you don’t always need to wade through deep mud or tackle challenging inclines – so we’ve made sure to provide a range of options to reflect this. One of the best things about owning an SUV is the freedom it gives you to bring along that extra person on your road trip or load up kit you would have otherwise had to leave behind, whether that’s a bike or a piece of furniture. While incredibly functional, the interiors of our SUV's also add a touch of luxury to every journey.

SUVs WITH HEART
Venue offers the practicality of an SUV, with a spacious interior, higher driving position, and increased ground clearance. Smartly designed with 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback for flexibility.
They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts, and the Kona’s interior counts for a lot – especially when it comes to space. It’s a compact SUV, but sit inside and the Kona soon reveals its spacious self. The Kona has far more room than you’d expect – from the generous boot, to the 60/40 folding rear seats, you’ll always have space when you need it.
Effortless flowing design continues inside the Tucson, with a sophisticated interior that’s both refined and sporty. Leather seats (Elite and Limited models), touchscreen audio with Apple Carplay and Android Auto create a sense of luxury. This feeling of spaciousness is further enhanced by the layout of the Tucson’s well organised dashboard.
THE SANTA FE
Moving inside the 7 seat Santa Fe, there’s room to load up the whole family, spread out, and relax. You’ll discover that the interior is just as much of an evolution as the exterior. Luxury combines with practicality and innovation to embrace you in one very special travel space. A range of convenience features ensures that you and your passengers enjoy absolute comfort whilst a comprehensive array of safety technologies help prevent and protect when required.
With its bold design, Palisade Series II is made for those who dare to be different, who want to break the daily routine and just get away from it all. From its innovative smart safety features to its class-leading spaciousness, Palisade delivers an endless stream of surprises.

HIGH-TECH DESIGN PRINCIPLES
Hyundai SmartSense™ is working to protect you. Every feature in this suite of intelligent safety technologies has one thing in common – they’ve been developed to help you be alert to (and avoid) any dangers around you. From alerting you to approaching objects and potential collisions, to helping you stay aware of what’s happening in your blind spots, Hyundai SmartSense™ provides peace of mind for you, and for us.
BESPOKE, HIGH STRENGTH STEEL
We think that by making your driving experience safer, we can also make it more enjoyable. This belief is at the very core of the Kona, Tucson and Santa Fe, which have chassis crafted from our proprietary Ultra-High Strength Steel that not only offers class-leading structural rigidity, but has the added benefit of reducing road noise.
