I wouldn't buy a diesel unless I planned on towing all the time. And if I planned on towing, I wouldn't buy a Santa Fe. Diesel makes sense in Europe because diesel fuel is a lot cheaper... like 30% or more cheaper. In the US diesel makes no sense because it's 15 or 20% more. And you can't convert it to biodiesel because of the new "clean" diesel standard.
Diesel in the UK is more expensive than petrol!!

You cannot purchase a Santa Fe 2010 model in petrol guise.

I have the 2010 diesel 2.2 litre It does 0 to 62 mph in 9.8 secs and the mid range power acceleration and torque is comparable to some Hot Hatches, currently I'm attaining 37.5 to the UK gallon, which ain't bad for a 4x4 housebrick.

Most UK drivers find them great for towing.
