Hyundai hopes bigger revamped Santa Fe SUV will reverse US sales slump

"The company focused on making the Santa Fe a "human-centered" vehicle that allows the driver and passengers to experience some advanced safety functions", Kim Hyo-lin, director of the User Experience Planning Group at Hyundai Motor, said at a media preview event.

Hyundai released no further details, but the earlier photo (below) highlighted that a new SmartSense safety package for the family SUV will include a Rear Occupant Alert monitor and rear cross-traffic collision warning with automatic braking.

Set to make its debut at the Geneva motor show, the all-new Hyundai Santa Fe has been unveiled with a first rendering.

Hyundai manufactures the Santa Fe Sport at its Montgomery plant. It also has a new "cascading grille" that can be seen throughout the Hyundai lineup. Last year, the factory turned out 58,481 Santa Fe Sports, as demand was higher for sport utility models. "The sale of the new model will decide the company's overall sales this year". If the passenger in the back seat tries to get out of the auto without noticing an approaching vehicle an alarm will sound. Given the Santa Fe's more prosaic role - a family vehicle with up to seven seats and a ton of room - that's probably right. It keeps an eye on "the rear seats to detect passengers and alerts the driver when leaving the auto".

With a 14-6 start this season, the Detroit Pistons were one of the more surprising teams in the National Basketball Association . Los Angeles just recently signed Griffin to the largest contract in team history this past summer.

Pre-orders for the new SUV start February 7.

As the Santa Fe SUV is the largest model Hyundai now sells, it's important to retain a family-friendly focus with the new model.

While Hyundai did not disclose other details, a source said the model comes with a 2.0-liter and a 2.2-liter diesel engine, a more fuel-efficient eight-speed transmission and semi-autonomous driving features used in its Genesis premium sedans.
