Jihad Hijazi, CEO of Auto Plaza Limited

Auto Plaza Limited (APL) an authorized partner of Hyundai vehicles in Ghana has introduced the all-new 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV, unto the Ghanaian market.

The vehicle which represents new thinking and new possibilities is manifested in its design.

Speaking at the press launch in Accra, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Auto Plaza Limited, Jihad Hijazi, stated that the vehicle represents high-end features for safety, comfort, style, and uniqueness to give its driver the ultimate experience.

“Santa Fe is responsible for the majority of the goodwill we have on the Ghana market today as Auto Plaza and also as the brand, Hyundai,” he said.

Mr Hijazi added Hyundai despite its cost, has become a household name, the most popular brand as well as the best sellers to the Ghanaian consumer.

“Our vehicles cost around US$10k and with the Santa Fe, you will get into the US$30k upwards. So it is not cheap compared to the other models in the range, however, it happens to be one of the most popular models that we sell,” he noted.

He observed that “In the past, big companies that wanted to manage a fleet would either go for a Toyota Prado, Mitsubishi Pajero or other popular brands like the Land Cruisers but the Santa Fe, has been able to forge this image whereby the big companies actually choose the Santa Fe as an alternative.”

Auto Plaza Limited since 2004, has grown into one of the largest, most diversified and professional vehicle distributors in Ghana and the Hyundai Santa Fe 2019 model is currently available at the company’s showroom for the Ghanaian consumer to purchase.
