Jan 25, 2018

  • The fourth generation Santa Fe, Hyundai Motor’s first SUV represents the company’s strong SUV heritage.
  • The new generation Santa Fe offers innovative and industry-first active safety

January 25, 2018 – Hyundai Motor has unveiled its first facts about the New Generation Santa Fe, which will celebrate its world premiere in February before making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in early March. The fourth generation Santa Fe continues the model’s global success story. The first Santa Fe was launched in 2001 and is the foundation of Hyundai Motor’s SUV credibility.

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.
