Take a look at the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Preview
Hyundai has managed to make a place in Spain, and in Europe, thanks in large part to its compact SUV, the Hyundai Tucson. But with a market, that of the SUV, which does not stop growing, and in constant evolution, the maxim of renewing or dying, far from being an unnecessary cliché, takes on more and more meaning. In the coming weeks, we will witness a great novelty, the launch of a new Hyundai Santa Fe. This SUV will have to deal with competitors such as the Peugeot 5008, which has entered with significant force in the market. But will this new Hyundai Santa Fe be able to stand up to the Peugeot 5008 and Nissan X-Trail to fight for a privileged position among the best sellers in its category?
What we know about the new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe
The new Hyundai Santa Fe will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show in early March. This 2018 Santa Fe will be the third generation of a product that landed in dealerships in 2001. The 2018 Santa Fe now seeks to ally with a modern and more daring design, and its technology, to gain market positions against the Peugeot and Nissan.
Hyundai recognizes the importance of this product as responsible “for the credibility of Hyundai in the SUV category”. Almost nothing.
At a technological level, we know that the new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe will debut systems such as the passenger warning in the rear seats. It will also have a warning of the presence of vehicles in the blind spot, in the rear, or approaching when leaving a car park. Also included is the ability to brake automatically if the system considers that there is a risk of collision. All these devices will be included in what Hyundai calls Smart Sense technologies.
2018 Hyundai Santa Fe compared to the Peugeot 5008 and Nissan X-Trail
The Hyundai Santa Fe of the present generation is available from $32,750, a vital jump from the $22,000 of the Hyundai Tucson. The Peugeot 5008 is, by far, the most exciting addition we have seen in this category in recent years and is available from $32,750. You also have at your disposal a Nissan X-Trail, with a promoted price of $28,000.
