The latest Hyundai Santa Fe will launch at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and a newly-issued teaser picture gives clues to the look of the brand’s large SUV.
The newcomer is only shown in side profile, but appears to be adopting Hyundai’s latest family front end, with split headlamps, seen on the recently launched Kona small SUV.
Hyundai is currently giving little away about the latest version of its largest model, that first appeared in 2001. However, the Santa Fe will be fitted with a new package of active safety features, dubbed Smart Sense technology.
According to Hyundai, Smart Sense includes an industry-first Rear Occupant Alert, that monitors the rear seats to detect passengers. If the seats are occupied it alerts the driver when they leave the car.
The rear cross-traffic collision warning system has also been enhanced, and will now automatically brake the car if approaching traffic makes a collision likely when the driver is reversing out of a parking space with limited rear visibility.
More information on the new Santa Fe, including the car’s powertrains, will be revealed closer to its unveiling at the Geneva show on 6th March. And The Car Expert will be at the show to bring you the latest news on all the important new models.
