Hyundai Motor Company 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.
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 eye-catching 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.
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.
Redesigned interior components are finished in premium soft-touch materials. In the middle of the redesigned center console sits gear shift buttons along with other functions that are used often. The shift-by-wire system allowed the designers to put buttons instead of the conventional shift knob.
The new Santa Fe comes with a Terrain Mode selector and HTRAC® All-Wheel-Drive (AWD). the base SE is powered by a 185-horsepower 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine. A 235-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo is available in SEL and Limited. All models feature 8-speed automatic transmissions.
