Hyundai Debuts the New Santa Fe
The redesigned Hyundai Santa Fe SUV emphasizes bold styling, family-focused features and a classy new interior, and new paint colours
Hyundai has unveiled the design of its upcoming New Santa Fe, showcasing charismatic styling and value-added features that make the SUV the ultimate family adventure vehicle.
Developed to offer a premium experience while meeting the complete needs of an entire family, the redesigned fourth-generation Santa Fe goes beyond a mere facelift.
A fresh look and feel along with new features can be seen from all sides of the car as well as the interior.
The New Santa Fe’s front section is defined by the wide grille that extends across the entire width of the vehicle. The clamped shape of the lower air intake harmoniously extends the horizontal line to accentuate the vehicle’s wide and well-balanced stance.
The grille, with its signature geometric patterned inlay, also integrates the headlamps, a signature style found on many Hyundai cars.
The LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) start at the top of the grille and cut through it to create unique T-shapes at each corner when lit.
Each side section of the New Santa Fe is characterized by a seamless line that connects the DRL to the taillights, giving the car a sensuously sporty look.
The increased width on wheel arches accentuate the SUV’s rugged and powerful character, which is also emphasized by 20-inch wheels.
The New Santa Fe’s redesigned taillights are connected across the rear hatch by a slim illuminated bar that complements the horizontal design theme on the front and sides of the vehicle. The theme is once again expressed by the wide rear reflector and skid plate, creating a unique three-layer look.
The New Santa Fe’s redesigned interior now provides more space, comfort, and convenience compared to the previous model.
It takes the car to a new level of luxury with every component finished in premium soft-touch materials.
For the first time, the new Santa Fe comes with a Terrain Mode selector: a control knob located in the centre console to conveniently switch between different drive modes, optimizing performance and HTRAC All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) settings for a variety of driving situations.
This feature includes unique modes for sand, snow and mud, as well as eco, sport, comfort and smart modes, the last of which automatically recognizes the driving style and selects a mode so the driver does not have to.
The new centre console’s layout freed up space for more storage in the redesigned lower dashboard.
The console also accommodates a new 10.25-inch AVN(audio, video, navigation) touchscreen display with pre-loaded maps, satellite-based voice guided navigation, rear camera display, and complete in-car entertainment and connectivity features.
