Santa Fe & Sprinter Reveals
February 6, 2018
Hyundai has revealed the first images of the next generation Santa Fe. The company’s largest passenger vehicle heads into the future with a new front fascia that includes twin headlights. The fourth generation Santa Fe has a longer wheelbase. SmartSense technology includes Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist which can apply the brakes automatically. The world premiere of the Hyundai Santa Fe is later this month.
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the new Sprinter in Germany. Front-wheel drive is now an option, along with rear and all-wheel drive. Sending power to the front led to developing two new transmissions: a 9-speed automatic and a 6-speed manual. The company is also moving forward with technology offering eight different connectivity packages. Mercedes-Benz says they plan more electrification of their commercial fleet. The new eSprinter will enter the market in 2019.
