Korean car manufacturer Hyundai has showcased the 2019 Santa Fe at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show. Inspired by the Kona compact SUV, the fourth-generation Santa Fe gets a sharper and aggressive stance and it will be introduced in the European market later this year. Along with new features and refreshed interiors the SUV will be available in five-seat and seven-seat options.
The 2019 Santa Fe will be available in two petrol and one diesel engine options. The 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine generates 183bhp of power, while the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol generates 230bhp. The 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel generates 188bhp of power. All the engines come mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that powers all-four wheels. In terms of safety, the new Santa Fe gets blind spot warning, automatic emergency braking and rear cross-traffic warning. Moreover, the sensor detects and alerts the driver if there’s an occupant in the rear seat. Additionally, it also prevents opening of doors whenever there is an object in the form of pedestrian, vehicle or cyclist approaching the vehicle.
As for the interior, the new Santa Fe gets premium upholstery, multi-zone climate control, wireless charging, and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, satellite navigation and Android Auto functionality. The vehicle has a longer wheelbase which offers more space for the occupants.
