Hyundai has clearly sharpened things up for the new auto, though.
Hyundai's modest three-nameplate crossover lineup comprises the Santa Fe, shorter-wheelbase Santa Fe Sport and the Tucson. The midsized SUV's prices and details will be released next month, the company said.
Hyundai Motor will launch the all-new Santa Fe sport utility vehicle next month in the domestic market to stimulate sales, the company said on January 30. This engine comes paired with a six-speed automatic.
Established in 1967, Hyundai Motor Company is committed to becoming a lifetime partner in automobiles and beyond.
The South Korean firm has confirmed that the Santa Fe will feature its latest "Smart Sense" active safety technology, including clever addions like rear seats that detect passengers and a rear alert system that works in conjunction with the car's automated emergency braking system (AEB) to help prevent reversing accidents when visibility is poor.
The SEA makes an alarm sound when a passenger departs from the vehicle if a auto is approaching from behind. That's why there will be a number of technological enhancements for the fourth-generation, which will include a rear occupant alert that issues a warning to let the driver know if there's someone in the rear seats when leaving the auto.
In 2017, Hyundai suffered declining sales in major markets such as China and the US due to a diplomatic row and a lack of new models, respectively. Its U.S. sales rose 1.5 percent to 133,171 previous year.
Hyundai said it will receive preorders from Feb. 7, before the vehicle hits local showrooms in late February.
The overall sales target comprises 701,000 cars that Hyundai aims to sell domestically and 3.97 million in overseas sales.
