The new Hyundai Santa Fe launch is just a few days away and here are the exterior (undisguised) and interior images of this SUV. The new Santa Fe is bigger, better equipped and crucially will be more affordable than its predecessor thanks to the fact that it will now be locally assembled.
To be launched on the 5th of February at the Auto Expo the new Hyundai Santa Fe will only have the 194 bhp 2.2 diesel with the six-speed manual and six-speed automatic gearbox offered. Expect the new Santa Fe to be equipped with features like 12-way electrically adjustable driver seat, six airbags, TFT touchscreen, rear camera and more!
Other than the long feature list, the quality and design of the interiors will impress all. A massive leap forward from the previous Santa Fe, the interiors look and feel luxurious. We will not get the bigger Grand Santa Fe as it would be too expensive. However the new Santa Fe to be sold in India will be a 7-seater and have third row seating as being a 5-seater limits the appeal of SUVs at this price . From the outside the new Santa Fe also has very good presence with the aggressive design and you cannot mistake it for anything else with that massive grille and LEDs at the front.
Priced right the new Santa Fe has potential to become a big success as its much better armed than its predecessor. Expect a price-tag of Rs 23.5 lakh for the base 2WD manual variant.
