The New Hyundai Santa Fe Looks Awesome and is Full of Premium Goodies
Hyundai Motor today celebrated the world premiere of the fourth-generation Santa Fe in Goyang city, in the northern outskirt of Seoul. Building on the success of its predecessors, the all-new 2019 Santa Fe combines Hyundai’s latest high-tech features with an intuitive spacious interior.
The new generation Santa Fe represents Hyundai’s ongoing commitment to delivering vehicles that feature world-class innovation and design. The all-new Santa Fe will start production from the second quarter of 2018 and will go on sale globally throughout this year.
Since the launch of the first Santa Fe in 2000, Hyundai has become an established brand in the SUV segment. It is the cornerstone of Hyundai’s longstanding SUV heritage and the fourth-generation Santa Fe will continue to impress customers with its premium design, spacious interior and its advanced technology.
The design of the fourth-generation Santa Fe connects with Hyundai’s SUV design identity. It displays a modern and elegant appearance complemented by an eye-catching Composite Light design and Hyundai’s signature Cascading Grille, which is the new face of Hyundai SUVs. The exterior design is characterised by a powerful wide stance and an athletic, bold look. Its refined lines reinforce the vehicle’s status at the top of Hyundai’s SUV line-up.
The front introduces the Cascading Grille that is complemented by a Composite Light design comprising LED Daytime Running Lights positioned on top of the LED headlights. The dynamic character of the side is enhanced by a sleek roofline and a bold side character line running from the headlights to the taillights. The rear creates a confident and stable stance with unique tail lights and a striking bumper design.
The exterior dimensions make the Santa Fe appear even more prominent. With a length of 4,770 mm, a width of 1,890 mm and a longer wheelbase of 2,765 mm, the Santa Fe has an even stronger stance on the road and provides more comfort for its passengers.
The Santa Fe has a refined and ergonomic interior architecture. The stunning relationship between design and functionality combines premium quality with a roomy horizontal layout and enhanced visibility. The visibility to the rear is improved by the larger rear quarter glass, which is increased by 41 percent compared to the previous generation model.
Drivers and front passengers will enjoy the support of the electric extendable seat cushions offering 10 different positions.
The new Santa Fe increases comfort for passengers in the second- and third-row seats, even for adults. In the second row, legroom is increased by 38 mm and the seat is 18 mm higher. The new one-touch folding seats ease passenger access to third-row seats. Headroom in the third row has also been improved by 22 mm.
Luggage capacity is also increased offering flexibility for everyday needs.
Industry-first safety technologies
Hyundai truly cares about customer’s well-being. To comply with the highest safety standards, the fourth-generation Santa Fe offers a best-in-class safety package and industry-first safety features. All features are part of Hyundai SmartSense™ active safety and driving assistance technologies.
The innovative Rear Occupant Alert monitors the rear seats to detect passengers and alert the driver that there are still passengers in the rear seat when leaving the car.
The Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist is also a Hyundai first. When reversing out of areas with low visibility, the system not only warns the driver if vehicles are approaching from the rear side, it also applies the brakes automatically.
The Safety Exit Assist prevents accidents by sensing when vehicles approach from behind and temporarily locking the doors before being opened, so that passengers can exit the car safely.
