As the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe is poised to be introduced to the market by the final quarter of this year, its new design and active safety and convenience features were introduced in last month’s Frankfurt motor show.
Describing the 2016 Santa Fe’s exterior, Hyundai said that they crafted the vehicle with an athletic and more modern presence. The latest Santa Fe will feature darker headlight lenses, a reshaped bumper equipped with new fog lights, thinner horizontal grille beams, and scuff plates. Alloy wheels and a shark fin antenna are among the subtle changes Hyundai made to the 2016 Santa Fe, along with LED tail-light lenses and larger reflectors.
Safety and Infotainment Features
The latest and updated Santa Fe will also be equipped with an autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, lane change assist, blind spot detection, and high beam assist. Most of these features were already included in the smaller Hyundai Tucson SUV, which was made available only months ago.
Aside from these, the vehicle will also be the first to offer Android Auto smartphone software, with an updated version of the i40. This enables Android smartphone users to connect their phones to their car’s infotainment system and access native and third-party apps, including music streaming and communication services. All these, and more, will be within your reach as the 2016 Santa Fe rolls out to dealerships later this year.
