KICKING WITH EXCITEMENT: Daniel Sturridge with his new generation Santa Fe, an updated version of the car his mum used to drive him to his matches as a child.

LONDON, ENGLAND – Daniel Sturridge, the rising Liverpool and England starlet and Team Hyundai ambassador recently took delivery of his New Generation Santa Fe.

Sturridge, who became a Team Hyundai Ambassador earlier in 2012 supporting Hyundai’s activity around UEFA EURO 2012, will be driving a 2.2-litre CRDi Santa Fe 4WD Premium autoc.

The model is equipped with a host of standard kit 8-inch alloy rims, daytime running lights, bluetooth with voice recognition, multi-function steering wheel, touch screen satnav and reversing parking camera.

'SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART'

Sturridge is no stranger to the Santa Fe, as his parents have driven one since 2004: “The Santa Fe is a great vehicle.  I think my parents’ one has now done nearly 160 000km and it hasn’t missed a beat.  My mum used to drive me to all my games in it when I was younger so it has a special place in my heart.

“The New Generation Santa Fe has certainly improved on all the qualities of the old model - space, practicality - but it now looks
and feels so much more modern and premium.  I am really looking forward to spending some time behind the wheel.”

Team Hyundai consists of five of Europe's top players:

Iker Casillas - Real Madrid and Spain), Lukas Podolski and Arsenal Germany, Giuseppe Rossi - Fiorentina and Italy, Karim Benzema - Real Madrid and France and Daniel Sturridge - Liverpool and England.
