JACs Eagle SUV is based on the Hyundai Sante-Fe which they gained from their former joint venture partner Hyundai. Oddly enough the IPR for the last generation Eagle went over to Hyundais other partner, Hawtai, but the molds for the Sante-Fe body and also the interior went to JAC. Did Hyundai pull a trick here? It sounds awfully like the SAIC-NAC incident that saw SAIC with the IPR and NAC with the Rover 75 tooling. Either way, JAC produced the Sante Fe from 2007 onwards and so did Hawtai.

For 2011 JAC have updated their version of the Sante Fe, which they now call The Eagle in 2010 The Eagle sold 18,000 units and was one of the best selling Chinese made SUVs last year. Engine power comes in the form of 2.4L and 2.0L petrol models but a 1.9TDI diesel engine is available.
