South Korean auto major Hyundai unveiled its updated Santa Fe SUV in Korea.
Hyundai's new Santa Fe 2015, dubbed as 'The Santa Fe Prime' in South Korea, comes with exterior and interior changes along with minor changes in the engine. Powered by the same 2.0 and 2.2-litre diesel units that deliver now-improved response and emission, the new Santa Fe is expected to hit the Indian shores too.
The features list of the new Santa Fe includes Smart High Beam Assist, Dynamic Bending Lights, Blind Spot Detection, Advanced cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, a 360-degree camera and a JBL surround-sound system. The car gets redesigned front and rear bumpers and minor changes on the front grille.
Inside the cabin, the facelifted Santa Fe remains mostly untouched, except for minor tweaks like new seats and accents on the dashboard. Other features of the new Santa Fe include optional panoramic sunroof and new 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Meanwhile, in India, Hyundai is expected to launch its new compact SUV Creta in coming months. The ix25 based Creta SUV is sold in the international market with 1.6- and 2.0-litre petrol engines coupled with 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions, with the choice of front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. In India, the model is expected to include 1.6-litre petrol and diesel mills with 5- and 6-speed manual transmission.
