With new looks, more room and a raft of technology, the fourth generation Santa Fe is looking very promising.
Ladies and gentlemen, these are the first official design sketches of the all-new Santa Fe SUV, which is scheduled to debut later this year - most likely at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Hyundai Motor will launch a fully revamped version of its midsize SUV Santa Fe next month, giving it a brand new look and upgraded safety features.
The seven-seat SUV boasts an angular design with a larger radiator grille and sleek headlights at the front, similar to the new Kona.
The exterior rendering highlights the magnificent frontal section of the All-New Santa Fe. The new Hyundai Santa Fe comes with LED daytime running lights which are designed much like any modern AUDI vehicle. The brand singled out a new rear occupant alert system that monitors back-seat passengers and alerts the driver when vacating the vehicle. It keeps an eye on "the rear seats to detect passengers and alerts the driver when leaving the vehicle".
Based on the sketches, the Santa Fe spots its signature hexagon grill design, with a thin chrome line at the top to connect the headlamps. India is the third-biggest market for Hyundai globally, behind China and the U.S. (outside home market Korea), and its share in the company's global revenue is around 15%. The 2018 Kona now gives buyers a smaller option than the Tucson and pricing will start at $20,450.
Hyundai will also look at bringing in an electric version of its Xcent entry sedan as well as Ioniq mid-size, India MD & CEO YK Koo told TOI here.
According to preliminary details revealed by the automaker, the 2019 Santa Fe will be equipped with advanced technologies to make the driving experience safer.
