Hyundai's new Santa Fe revealed in Korea

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe

The first fully-revamped Santa Fe to be rolled out in six years comes as the carmaker badly needs a new SUV to drive up sales in major markets like the US, where the demand for crossovers has been on the rise.

The new Hyundai Santa Fe is officially revealed in the first photos of the 2018 Santa Fe from Hyundai, showing an SUV with a bold new look and new technology.

It's bigger than the outgoing Santa Fe too, 70mm longer and 10mm wider, and Hyundai says that it has a longer wheelbase, which may mean (at last) that someone other than very small children might fit in the third-row seats in the boot. It features refined lines that reinforce the car's status at the top of Hyundai's SUV lineup. These models will come with front-wheel drive system although customers can choose to have it with all-wheel drive with an additional $1300. At that length, it straddles the line between the current US -market Santa Fe three-row (193.1 inches) and the two-row Santa Fe Sport (185.0 inches).

The 2019 Santa Fe will also be offered with a long list of driver assistance systems, like forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane departure assistance, and frontal collision avoidance. A new Safety Exit Assist will also lock the doors if the vehicle detects a vehicle approaching from the rear. The Santa Fe also sees the first use of Rear Occupant Alert (ROA), which will alert the driver upon leaving the auto if it detects a passenger still sitting in the rear of the vehicle.

Engine choices include a 2.0 litre turbo petrol mill and 2.0 and 2.2 litre turbodiesels, although no output figures have been released just yet. An eight-speed automatic transmission is available with all three units.
