Hyundai Motor Company has revealed its totally redesigned Santa Fe, the automaker announced.
According to Hyundai, the fifth-generation midsize SUV implements major updates shaped by big data around the latest outdoor lifestyle trends. For Santa Fe’s first full model change since 2018, Hyundai Motor took lifestyle-based approach to its design to maximize rear cargo capacity and better accommodate outdoor and urban activities, the company said. As a result, the new model features an updated exterior design and a versatile interior with enlarged tailgate for easier and more varied use.
“The all-new Santa Fe is an SUV that finds a perfect balance between city life and the great outdoors, handling everything from busy family itineraries to car camping adventures,” said SangYup Lee, executive vice president and head of Hyundai Global Design Center. “With its longer wheelbase, roomy interior and terrace-like tailgate space, the new Santa Fe leans into its SUV strengths to offer more versatility than ever before as well as a premium customer experience.”
The all-new Santa Fe’s boxy shape and silhouette are derived from its long wheelbase and wide tailgate area, Hyundai designers said.
The front of the vehicle has a high hood, H-shaped headlamps and sharp fenders, while the H-shaped headlamps complement the H-motif lower front design. The H-shaped design elements reinterpret Hyundai’s ‘H’ emblem.
Seen from the side, the lengthened wheelbase accommodates a bold roofline, powerful volume around the fenders, sharply defined wheel arches, shortened front overhang and 21-inch wheels.
