It's been a long time since I have been on this site! We are in the process of changing Jeep for another tug and the Hyundai Santa Fe 2.2 7 seater seems to be a possibility BUT we want to know if it will do the job with our Fleetwood Heritage T/A. Any and All info much appreciated ! We are looking at 2011 auto as Himself is in his late 70s now and not as nimble these days
I do hope everyone is well and happy xxx

I may have got it in the wrong place so here goes again!We are thinking of a 2010/2011 Hyundai Santa Fe 7 seat aut to tug Hetty a Fleetwood t/A.. It is the first time for many years since I have been here and I hope everyone is well and happyx

You don't say what the MTPLM is for the van but the Santa Fe has a rated towing capacity of 2000kg and kerbweight of 1,890 to 1,895 kg I don't take any notice of the 85% guidannce-rubbish in my mind but if your caravan weighs less than 1895kg your Hyundai should make mincemeat of it-ie easy tow and anything up to 2000kg is perfectly legal.

Hello, I have a 2014 SantaFe, which weighs in at 1950kg kerb weight, its the 5 seat version, as they have more room under the boot area than the 7 seat. The Auto has a max tow of 2000kg manual 2500 kg. We tow a Coachman 560VIP at 1645 max. And it pulls that easily, and we are normally at max weight, we used to tow this caravan with a 2008 Santa Fe which coped very well. Its a nice Tug, but can have a blind spot on the front window down struts.

We started with a 2014 Santa Fe pulling a 1700 kg single axle caravan always loaded to its maximum. It pulled it with ease. Plenty of torque, enough power for an overtake when the opportunity arose and never found a hill that it could not cope with. Travelled all over Europe with it without a problem. So pleased with it that we traded it in for a new one - thanks to their Affinity programme.

I have a 2010 (2011 model) Kia Sorento which is vertually same car. I pull a Coachman Pastiche which is quite heavy without any trouble whatsoever. Lovely car and effortless driving. Put it on cruise and on a motorway you will get 30+ mpg towing

A very warm welcome back Thursdays Child, it has indeed been a long time since you were on the (old) forum.
I hope everything is as good as it can be for you, and that you are looking to keep using the van, if we get some decent weather.

I will back up Bobs message, but towing our "probably " overweight caravan, in France, on the southern section of the A75 near The Millaue Bridge, at 35c we were struggling. But it coped well in Switzerland in winter conditions, the 4 wheel drive system is good as long as you have good tyres, . Beware wet grass.

Hutch I thank you for helpful information 're our new tow car to be. Himself has always enjoyed his very old Grand Cherokee especially when in North York's after a blizzard she was the only 4x4 able to pull Hetty off the site ? Himself is very rarely competitive but this was his finest hour xxBless him !,
