Hyundai Santa Fe celebrates Team Wiggins partnership

Special edition Hyundai Sante Fe SUV marks partnership with Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins and his cycling team

Hyundai has announced a special edition version of the Santa Fe SUV, to celebrate its exclusive partnership with Sir Bradley Wiggins’ cycling team.

Based on the Hyundai Santa Fe Premium SE, the Team Wiggins Edition will host a range of new detailing features to differentiate it from the standard SUV. Only 500 will be built, with each car benefitting from all the standard equipment on the Premium SE, including dynamic headlights with automatic high beam, a panoramic sunroof, a smart electric tailgate, a parking assist system and ventilated front seats. In addition to all this, the Team Wiggins Edition gets unique badging and new 19-inch alloy wheels.

Five body colours will also be available with the Team Wiggins Edition; an all-new pearl-effect White Crystal, solid Creamy White, metallic Titanium Silver, metallic Ocean View blue and pearl-effect Phantom Black.

David Pugh, Hyundai's marketing director, said: “It’s great to be able to celebrate this successful partnership [with Team Wiggins] by issuing a desirable twist on one of our own icons.

“The Team Wiggins Edition is packed full of equipment, looks the part but crucially offers great value too”, he said. “Buyers will need to be quick to snap up the 500-car run.”

Sir Bradley Wiggins added: “It’s great to be working with Hyundai this year - the company is a great fit with a really positive spirit and attitude. I’m very proud to put my name to this limited run of special Team Wiggins Edition models and am looking forward to putting the range through its paces over the summer racing season and beyond.”

Wiggins and his team will use five cars throughout the 2016 racing schedule, comprising two i40 Tourers, two Santa Fes and an iLoad van. The cars will follow the team across the UK and Europe this summer, including for the Tour of Britain, which starts on 4 September.

Hyundai will only be offering the Santa Fe Team Wiggins Edition with one engine – the 2.2 litre CRDi diesel – although the choice of a manual or automatic transmissions is available. The manual costs £35,995, while the automatic comes in at £38,295, meaning the Wiggins Edition costs £705 less than a like-for-like Premium SE. Both cars are on sale now.
