New Hyundai Santa Fe revealed with bold looks and advanced driver assistance systems

7

Hyundai has revealed the new, larger, fourth-generation Santa Fe ahead of its Geneva reveal in March.

The D-segment SUV sports stronger looks and enhanced technology as well as promising greater comfort for occupants.

Safety equipment is plentiful with a suite of active safety and driving assistance systems, called Hyundai SmartSense.

The Rear Occupant Alert monitors the rear seats to detect passengers and alerts the driver that there are still passengers in the rear seat when leaving the car.

Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist warns the driver if vehicles are approaching from the rear side when reversing, 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.

An all-wheel-drive system improves stability but also improves efficiency by sending power mainly to the front wheels unless additional traction is required.

Two petrol and two diesel engines will be available in Europe. A 2.4-litre GDI or 2.4-litre MPI petrol plus a 2.0-litre or 2.2-litre diesel.

CO2 emissions and fuel economy have yet to be revealed but all powertrains feature an eight-speed automatic transmission.
