Hyundai’s given their midsize Santa Fe SUV just as much attention as they have the Veloster N, for example. First, it will be powered by the group’s turbocharged 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine which produces 290 horsepower and 308 lb.-ft. of torque. It will be joined by an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission and Hyundai’s HTRAC AWD system.

The list of upgrades is considerable, as shared by thekoreancarblog. Both the front and rear bumpers are revised, there’s a new N performance grille, 21-inch wheels with N performance brakes, a rear spoiler and carbon diffuser. There are numerous dark of black exterior accents for that menacing look. The cabin also is upgraded with N sport seats, carbon and alcantara touches.

There’s no current information as to its availability in North America however there’s little doubt that it would do well. Many car makers have noticed that loaded trims for SUVs are popular and a still affordable high-performance top-trim Hyundai Santa Fe N would certainly find many takers.

The Hyundai Santa Fe N performance package will be available later this year in South Korea.
