More details are expected at the unveil venue, Geneva Motor Show.

Enhancing the user experience is at the core of the latest Santa Fe, according to the company.

Besides the Kona, Hyundai will also be evaluating the possibility of an electric version of the Xcent compact sedan.

On the domestic front, Hyundai Motor will receive preorders from February 7, with the new Santa Fe to hit showrooms here on February 21. "Later on, depending on market response, we will consider manufacturing here in India but that will take time", Koo said.

The midsized SUV's prices and further details will be released next month, it said. Power is provided by a 147hp 2.0-liter engine paired to a standard six-speed automatic transmission.

The technologies to be incorporated in the fourth-generation Sante Fe include advanced driver assistance systems and a host of safety features such as safe exit assist, rear occupant alert and rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist systems, it said.

Based on the industry term "Calm-Tech", the automotive company said that various features in the auto will work to predict the driver and passengers' needs and respond even before they take action. The model, expected in the US market in the third quarter of this year, will be "key to recovering the utilization rate of Hyundai's factory in Alabama". Here's everything we know about the USA -spec Kona.

Korea's largest automaker held a media preview event on Tuesday and gave a sneak peek of the new vehicle's key features. Hyundai Motor has eight manufacturing bases and seven design and technical centers worldwide and in 2017 sold about 4.7 million vehicles globally.
