Hyundai’s Fourth-Generation Santa Fe gets Bigger and Bolder

Santa Fe’s styling echoes the Kona and Nexo SUVs

Hyundai has revealed the new Santa Fe ahead of its official debut at the Geneva motor show next month. The Nissan X-Trail-rivalling large SUV grows in length and width, while gaining Kona-like styling and the ‘HTRAC’ four-wheel-drive system inherited from Hyundai’s Genesis luxury brand. There will be 2.0-litre diesel and turbo petrol engines joining the line-up, in addition to the existing 194bhp 2.2-litre diesel.

A host of driver aids are standard, as is a system that locks the rear doors and alerts the driver if a door is being opened when traffic is approaching from behind. Prices are expected to increase from the current car’s £32,845 start point.
