In case you missed it, PT Hyundai Motor Indonesia (HMID) launched the new 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe last week. Just in time for the social media team to come up with this creative way of wishing everyone a Happy Ramadan using the Santa Fe’s new light signature.
Hyundai gave the fourth-generation Santa Fe a major facelift back in June 2020, now the front-end features a new LED DRL set in the shape of a T to pair with the new more prominent grille. Hyundai designers hope that the new look will convey a more energetic impression for a 3-row SUV.
To make sure the new 7-seater still fits the SUV role, HMID offers the Santa Fe with 18-inch wheels. The larger wheels also serve to give the large SUV a more balanced look.
On the inside, the Santa Fe now comes a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, HMID claims that the new cluster is the largest of its class. HMID has also added a panoramic sunroof to emphasise the premium quality.
The new Santa Fe is packed to the brim with new safety features like Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA), Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM), and Rear-Cross Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA).
Other than that, the Santa Fe also comes with Lane Keep Assist (LKA) and Lane Following Assist (LFA). The aforementioned systems add on to the usual safety equipment like 6-airbags and Surround View Monitor.
Hyundai also added safety features for rear occupants like Electric Child Lock (ECL) and Safety Exit Assist (SEA). SEA will alert rear passengers if there are approaching cars when they are exiting.
There is also Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) that will remind drivers to double-check if there are rear passengers in the back before leaving the car.
HMID has 6 variants of the Santa Fe on offer, 3 each for 2 engine options. Buyers have a choice between a 2.5-litre MPi petrol engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission that produces 180 PS and 232 Nm and a 2.2-litre CRDi turbodiesel engine mated to an 8-speed DCT that produces 202 PS and 440 Nm.
There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
