Hyundai is “setting a new benchmark” in the SUV segment with the release of the all-new fourth-generation Santa Fe, as per a statement yesterday. With this, the company is providing customers outstanding design, innovative technology and the recent safety features, while maintaining the popular model’s reputation for excellent value.
Starting with the launch of its first generation in 2000, the Santa Fe has “officially established itself as a customer favorite and an icon for the Hyundai brand. The fourth generation builds on that history while keeping a clear focus on the future”, the statement included.
The design of the fourth-generation Santa Fe associates with Hyundai’s new SUV family look.
The Santa Fe has a renovated and ergonomic interior architecture, combining high-technology components into what nearly feels like a dual cockpit layout. Drivers and front passengers are going to enjoy the support of the electric extendable seat cushions, providing 10 different positions. The all-new Santa Fe also boosts comfort for passengers in the second and third rows, also for adults.
The all-new Santa Fe offers advanced connectivity features to improve seamless combination of the customer’s smartphone, with a choice of three systems. Protecting driver and passengers, the new Hyundai SmartSense active safety and driving assistance functions support safe driving. Features consists of Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist having pedestrian detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Rear Occupant Alert, Safety Exit Assist and Speed Limit Info Function. An overall of six airbags are also installed.
The all-new Santa Fe further benefits from superior rigidity through the application of high-strength steel, high-impact energy absorption and minimized distortion, to safeguard passengers in the event of a crash. The Africa and Middle East versions of the all-new Santa Fe will get a choice of 2.4-litre four-cylinder or 3.5-litre V6 petrol engines, and a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel, depending on the region. These are matched to either six-speed or eight-speed automatic transmission.
