2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Revealed… here middle of the year
The first images of the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe have been released… it’ll arrive here towards the middle of the year.
THE ALL-NEW HYUNDAI SANTA FE has finally been revealed with the Korean car maker releasing two photos, one showing the outside and one the interior. The cars are Korean-spec vehicles where customers can begin ordering them from today.
Hyundai is keeping quiet on key details ahead of the vehicles arrival in Australia towards the middle of the year. The new Santa Fe borrows the cascading grille from the i30 and Kona, as well as the twin headlights that will become a hallmark of Hyundai SUVs going forwards.
The new Santa Fe measures: 4770mm long, 1890mm wide and gets a longer wheelbase (this hasn’t been released). Hyundai said this means more room on the inside of the car.
It’s expected that Australian-spec cars will get access to the full SmartSense suite which includes a couple of new features, like Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, which works “when reversing out of areas with low visibility, the system not only warns the driver if vehicles approach from the side – it also applies the brakes automatically”. It also features Safety Exit Assist which “prevents accidents when vehicles approach from behind by temporarily locking the doors, so that passengers will exit the car safely”.
The new Santa Fe will get its full reveal later this month, with more information about Australian cars closer to the launch.
