Exterior design: Bold SUV’s powerful presence reflects a growing outdoor lifestyle trend

Hyundai made changes to the Santa Fe, focusing first on making the back area bigger to make outdoor activities easier. Then they worked on the outside design, making it look strong and stylish for both city and nature settings.

The new Santa Fe has a tough look with a high hood, unique headlamps, and defined fenders at the front. It also has a longer wheelbase, which makes it look more impressive. The sides are smooth, with a bold roofline and big wheels.

At the back, the wider tailgate adds to its strong appearance. The lights at the back match the ones at the front, making it stand out on the road.

Inside, the car offers comfortable and spacious seating.

Interior design: Horizontal and vertical design elements neatly convey a solid SUV character

The new interior of the SANTA FE complements its exterior design with a mix of horizontal and vertical elements, creating a balanced and open feel. Features like UV-C Sterilization Tray and wireless charging add sophistication and practicality.

A standout feature is the Panoramic Curved Display, combining a digital cluster and infotainment system for enhanced visibility and luxury. The longer wheelbase provides ample interior space, with foldable seats creating a terrace-like area in the rear, perfect for outdoor activities.

Hyundai used eco-friendly materials throughout, from soft surfaces to seat coverings, ensuring safety and sustainability. Even the exterior features recycled materials, showcasing a commitment to eco-conscious design.
