Sturridge’s new car is in four-wheel drive Premium automatic specification (what else would you expect from a Premiership footballer after all…) and comes loaded with equipment.
The car boasts a plethora of standard features, including 18-inch alloy wheels, daytime running lights, Bluetooth with voice recognition, a multi-function steering wheel, touchscreen satellite navigation, a reverse parking camera with all-round parking sensors and a full black leather interior.
But far from needing a Premiership footballer’s salary to afford one, the New Generation Hyundai Santa Fe starts from just £24,696, rising to a brilliantly affordable £29,741 for the fully-loaded high-spec model Sturridge drives.
The centre forward is no stranger to Hyundai’s superbly practical, superbly stylish and superbly capable off-roader – his parents have driven on since 2004:
“The Santa Fe is a great vehicle. I think my parents’ one has now done nearly 100,000 miles and it hasn’t missed a beat. My mum used to drive me to all my games in it when I was younger so it has a special place in my heart.
“The New Generation Santa Fe has certainly improved on all the qualities of the old model − space, practicality − but it now looks and feels so much more modern and premium. I am really looking forward to spending some time behind the wheel.”
Powered by a hi-tech 197hp 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine the Hyundai Santa Fe will sprint from 0-62mph in a range-best of 9.4 seconds.
Alongside this strong performance, seven-seat capability and brilliant flexibility and practicality (the car boasts a maximum load space of 1,615 litres with the seats down) the Hyundai Santa Fe returns remarkable efficiency, at 47.9mpg combined with 155g/km CO2 emissions.
