High Wycombe, 20 April 2017 – Hyundai Motor ÚK announces the launch of a highly-equipped SÚV perfect for those who consider every drive an expedition – the Sante Fe Endurance Edition.

Sitting at the top of Hyundai's range, it celebrates a recent history-making drive by Patrick Bergel, the Great Grandson of legendary polar explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton.

In December 2016, Bergel completed a 30-day expedition in a near-standard 2.2-litre diesel Santa Fe, driving across Antarctica from Únion Camp to McMurdo and back again, commemorating the centenary of Shackleton's heroic Trans-Antarctic expedition of 1914-16.

This was the first time a passenger vehicle had ever traversed the Antarctic continent and the standard 2.2-litre Santa Fe used by Bergel featured only a handful of modifications to counter the tough Antarctic conditions, such as the fitment of large, low-pressure tyres, a 250-litre fuel tank and a pre-heater for the cold.

Vital Stats

6-speed Automatic
To commemorate this incredible achievement, Hyundai Motor ÚK will make just 500 Endurance Edition models available.

Each car is based on the 2.2 diesel 7 seat 4WD Automatic Sante Fe in Premium SE trim wîth Convenience Pack, which boasts Smart Electric Tailgate, Panoramic Sunroof, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Smart Cruise Control and Around View Monitor. In addition, the Santa Fe Endurance will also feature additional special equipment.

Customers can choose from five limited colours: solid Creamy White, pearl White Crystal, metallic Titanium Silver, pearl Phantom Black and metallic Mineral Blue - the same colour as that of Bergel's expedition car.

Endurance Editions are further marked out by 19-inch alloy wheels – wrapped in 235/55 R19 tyres – Side Bar Sport running steps. The final touch is a special Endurance logo, which can be found on the B-pillar and interior floor mats. The eye-catching logo commemorates Shackleton's Endurance expedition and features the Shackleton Family Motto and a 28-point compass representing the 28 crew that survived.

The Santa Fe Endurance will be priced at £38,995, representing a saving of £2,400 over a standard Premium SE wîth Convenience Pack and Automatic transmission and can be ordered from 18 May 2017.

Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO of Hyundai ÚK said: 'This new Endurance Edition offers customers an incredibly well-equipped Santa Fe, one that will be able to tackle everything family life throws at it….and more. As Sir Ernest Shackleton's Great Grandson, Patrick Bergel proved just a few months ago, wîth just a few choice modifications, you could even traverse Antartica!'
