All-New Hyundai Santa Fe Marks UAE Debut
The popular Hyundai Santa Fe has just received a major overhaul and is now in its fourth generation. Hyundai has brought the all-new SUV to the shores of the UAE for 2019.
Juma Al Majid Est., the exclusive distributor of Hyundai Motors in the UAE has announced that the all-new Hyundai Santa Fe will be going on sale across the country. The fourth-generation SUV raises the bar in its segment in terms of design, innovative technology, and safety.
Ghassan Naser, Director of Hyundai UAE, said, “Santa Fe is an iconic brand of Hyundai and one of the top customer favourites. The fourth-generation Santa Fe builds on its strong legacy, with enhanced features across every aspect – from design to performance and safety – adding to the driving pleasure. More spacious and with several conveniences packed into one powerful SUV, the new Santa Fe also assures excellent value, which makes it appealing to motorists.”
Indeed, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe looks appealing, with its evolved design language called Storm Edge. Hyundai especially developed the sub-family of design for its SUVs. The bold design sets it apart from other SUVs in its class and makes it unmistakable.
Hyundai is offering a choice between two powertrains for customers in the UAE. You can choose between a Theta II 2.4-litre inline-four petrol motor that makes 170hp or treat yourself to the Lambda II 3.5-litre V6-powered Santa Fe that produces 276hp. There is also a choice between two transmissions: a six-speed and an eight-speed gearbox, both automatic. HTRAC four-wheel-drive is also on the options list which provides enhanced torque application making the Santa Fe equally capable both on and off the road.
Hyundai has given the 2019 Santa Fe more legroom along with a one-touch walk to the third row. Passengers can now easily access the rear seats due to the clever new gimmick. The interiors are well laid out and feature a host of creature comforts. For starters, the infotainment unit is housed in a 7-inch screen that supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The instrument cluster is now displayed on a full-TFT screen. Premium upholstery and ergonomic controls together make for a rich, feature-laden cabin.
The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe does not skimp on safety. With six airbags and systems like blind spot collision warning, rear occupant alert, Hyundai SmartSense for active safety and driving assistance, it is well-equipped in terms of passenger and driver safety. New safety systems onboard the SUV include Safety Exit Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with pedestrian safety, and Lane Keeping Assist.
The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is now on sale in the UAE through all Hyundai dealerships nationwide.
