The all-new 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe range has been fully detailed in every specification, including Australian pricing as it hits the market, vying to be the best 7 seater on the market.
The new car leaps forward in many ways, including new engines, six and eight-speed automatic transmissions, a new ‘HTRAC’ all-wheel drive system and active safety features, as well as a bold new appearance.
All Santa Fe models from the entry-level Active up come standard with forward collision alert, autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, fatigue monitoring, lane keep assist and auto high-beam.
Hyundai says the new folding mechanism for the second row of seats allows far easier access to the third row than ever before, while it also benefits from the same local tuning program as other Hyundai vehicles. Hyundai’s R-MDPS, or rack-mounted motor electric power steering system allowed local engineers to tune the steering feel more precisely than ever before.
Hyundai Motor Company Australia’s CEO, Mr JW Lee said:
“The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is an eye-catching and technologically advanced new generation model that has grown into a family favourite over four generations and almost two decades on the market.”
“Santa Fe delivers a long list of cutting-edge active safety features as standard across the range, powerful and efficient petrol and turbo-diesel engines, handsome style, family-friendly versatility, and value for money, with a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty and Lifetime Service Plan.”
“Santa Fe is an advanced, safe and stylish SUV to complement an active family lifestyle”
