Hyundai Motor has unveiled its first facts about the New Generation Santa Fe, which will celebrate its world premiere in February before making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in early March.
The fourth era Santa Fe proceeds with the model's global success story. The first Santa Fe was launched in 2001 and is the foundation of Hyundai Motor's SUV credibility. The third-gen Santa Fe was among the primary models in Hyundai's lineup to preview the second iteration of its design language, Fluidic Sculpture 2.0, with its edgier aesthetics. In fact, it was based on the 'Storm Edge' design philosophy, which was a subsidiary of the Fluidic Sculpture design language.
The new age Santa Fe offers a comprehensive package of Hyundai's latest active safety features under the Smart Sense technology umbrella. The inventive and industry-first Rear Occupant Alert screens the back seats to detect passengers and alerts the driver when leaving the car. The Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning is now enhanced by an automated braking function. To keep away from the risk of collision when reversing out of narrow areas with limited visibility, the system warns the driver and applies the brakes automatically.
Under the hood, 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe will be offered with two turbocharged diesel engines -2.0-litre and 2.2-litre, and the familiar 2.0-litre GDI petrol mill. While you might not get a manual alternative, you will surely get all-wheel drive as standard along with the eight-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. It will be stacked to the gills with features like sunroof, power seats and ventilated seats in the front along with a host of electronic gadgetry. So parking sensors, push-button start, power mirrors etc all will be standard.
