Hyundai Motor has unveiled its first details about the New Generation Santa Fe, which will celebrate its world premiere in February before making its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in early March. The fourth generation Santa Fe continues the model’s global success story.
The new generation Santa Fe offers a comprehensive package of Hyundai’s latest active safety features under the Smart Sense technology umbrella. The innovative and industry-first Rear Occupant Alert monitors the rear 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 avoid the risk of collision when reversing out of narrow areas with limited visibility, the system warns the driver and applies the brakes automatically.
The Santa Fe displays a modern and elegant appearance complemented by eye-catching twin headlights and the Cascading Grille, Hyundai’s SUV-family identity. The exterior design is characterised by a powerful wide stance and an athletic, bold look. It features refined lines that reinforce the car’s status at the top of Hyundai’s SUV line-up.
The Santa Fe interior design combines premium quality with a horizontal and roomy layout and enhanced visibility.
Its exterior dimensions make the new generation Santa Fe appear even more prominent. With a length of 4,770mm, a width of 1,890mm and a longer wheelbase, it also provides more comfort for its passengers.
As part of its SmartSense technology, the new Santa Fe offers a comprehensive package of Hyundai’s latest active safety features, making advanced technology affordable. Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist is a Hyundai first.
When reversing out of areas with low visibility, the system not only warns the driver if vehicles approach from the side – it also applies the brakes automatically. The Safety Exit Assist prevents accidents when vehicles approach from behind by temporarily locking the doors, so that passengers will exit the car safely.
Further details of new generation Santa Fe will be disclosed at the world premiere in February, ahead of its Australian market launch around the middle of this year.
