Because of its standard stability control, redesigned suspension, and significantly enhanced static stability, this new version will not tip-up in the Gov't test. The intentional non-recommendation of the Santa Fe only applies to the last generation model (model years 2001-2006 here in the States) - something that I personally feel is a responsible move on CR's part. CR will recommend the new Santa Fe if it performs well in their tests, and exhibits at least average reliability and decent crash test scores - that means waiting until fall 2007. (Unless, perhaps, the redesigned Sonata shows with excellent reliability in this year's survey. If this happens, and there is marked improvement across the Hyundai line, they may be willing to project reliabilty of the new Santa Fe at above-average and recommend it sometime in the early half of next year. This is all purely speculative, however.)
Other 2006 model-year SUVs that have tipped-up in the test include the Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Escape, Mazda Tribute, Mercury Mariner, Pontiac Torrent, and Saturn Vue.
The most important thing you can do to reduce your chance of rollover in any vehicle (but especially a pickup, minivan, or SUV) is to select a model with stability control. Head-protective side airbags are another important safety item to be on the lookout for - something that's also standard on this new Santa Fe.
Pricing in Canada starts at $25,995 CDN and ranges to $35,995 CDN.

From another forum, actually. Because of this website's posting rules, I'm not allowed to say which forum.
But, if you go to Google.com and type in "2006/7 Hyundai Santa Fe abes_cw," you might just get lucky. Especially on the 21st page of... ahem*... any hit that you may get.

Thanks, seem expensive to me. We will have to wait to get more details on specs to compare with US pricing.

Does anyone know about whether or not Hyundai will be offering any incentives right away? I know this is probably unlikely, but I can hope can't I?
Also, does anyone know whether or not they will be offering leases right away? When I bought my Tucson when it was first released, they weren't offering leases right away, I am just curious if they will follow suite with the Santa Fe.
