Hyundai introduced their all-new Santa Fe today which promises a “nature-meets-city appeal”. Great for outdoor lifestyles. Now, you just have to learn to like being outside in 120 degree weather.
They’ve redesigned the outside in the shape of an H (for Hyundai? ). It supposedly will “harmonize” the front and rear.
Per SangYup Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of Hyundai Global Design Center, “[t]he 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.” Indoors, outdoors, we have you covered. It’s the perfect cross between your kids’ soccer practice and your mid-life crisis camping trip all in one go.
The front has a high hood, H-shaped headlamps and a bold fender. The tailgate is extended with, we assume, spacious cabin space.
Just like every car these days, the inside will be similar to a cockpit panel, with lights and gadgets, sounds and graphics, to take your Switch playing days into a live vehicle going 60 mph.
The Santa Fe hasn’t been redesigned since 2018. I’m impressed. Hyundai is doing things right. They have the IONIQ 5 N which could be a Tesla killer. One thing I’m always impressed by is how Hyundai went from a cheap, butt of all jokes, car, to beating out other car brands for loyalty and design.
