An extended version of the Korean crossover was created specifically for Chinese buyers. The other day, the official dealers of Hyundai in the Middle Kingdom began to receive orders for a novelty.

Hyundai Santa Fe 2019 got a “stretched” version intended for the car market in China. Such a cross has become longer than the global Hyundai Santa Fe by 160 mm (4,930 mm), while the wheelbase has increased by 100 mm (2,865 mm). On the exterior, the new bumpers and rear pillars, a different tailgate, and original taillights attract attention. The architecture of the interior of the Chinese Santa Fe also has its own nuances: the cross gets three rows of seats, as well as buttons instead of the classic gearbox lever.

As options, the manufacturer provided its modernized cross-media with the support of voice control, contactless charging for smartphones and other gadgets, as well as a central lock protected by a fingerprint scanner.

As a power unit, the Chinese will be offered a four-cylinder T-GDI turbo engine of two liters with a return of 240 hp, combined with automatic transmission on eight stages. The drive can be either front or full. For the most affordable Santa Fe 2019 will have to pay 212,800 yuan
