Hyundai Motor to Unveil Upgraded Santa Fe Version This Week


SEOUL, June 30 (Yonhap) – Hyundai Motor Co. announced on Tuesday that it will launch an improved Santa Fe SUV in South Korea this week to support sales in the context of a new coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19).

The upgraded fourth-generation Santa Fe model will be released on Wednesday with a 2.2-liter diesel engine and an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, the company said in a statement.

Hyundai also announced plans to introduce a Santa Fe model with a 2.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine and an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission later this year.

The improved Santa Fe is equipped with safety functions, such as lane departure assist, collision avoidance assist (PCA-R), forward collision avoidance, corner avoidance assistance and highway driver assistance systems, the statement said. The diesel model is priced between 31 million and 40 million won ($ 26,000-33,000).

The Santa Fe adopts what Hyundai calls “sensual sportiness”, defined by the harmony between four fundamental elements in vehicle design: proportion, architecture, style and technology.

Hyundai has applied the new concept to the improved sixth generation Grandeur model launched in 2016, the new Sonata sedan released last year, the all-new compact Avante which debuted in April and all-electric concept Prophecy.
