A near standard Hyundai Santa Fe 2.2-litre diesel conquers the Antarctic driven by great grandson of Sir Ernest Shackleton.

Hyundai Motor Company made history when a near-standard 2.2-litre diesel Santa Fe became the first passenger vehicle to be driven across the continent of Antarctica from Union Camp to McMurdo and back again.

The Santa Fe was driven by Patrick Bergel, the great grandson of legendary polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton.

The journey, which took place last December (2016 ), was timed to commemorate the centenary of Shackleton’s heroic Trans-Antarctic expedition of 1914-16. It was made into a short film by Hyundai and shown for the first time in London.
