Hyundai Sta Fe Diesel 2.2 CRDi engine

I read the manual booklet of Sta Fe, & notice that the Engine oil requirement should be at least API = CH4 , but the Hyundai dealer recommend the Shell brand synthetic oil with API= SM/CF. Please comment.
Your kind opinion is highly appreciated.
Truly Yours, Peter

Follow the manual.
