New Santa Fe will be extremely distinctive
Square design meant to maximise cabin space
Hyundai is getting ready to launch an all-new Santa Fe. Hyundai’s midsize crossover will be nothing if not distinctive. The styling is very square, very Hyundai, and very aggressive in is boxiness.
The H-lamp headlights set off the front of the new Santa Fe, and they’re matched with similar lamps in the tail. Those lamps are one of the only bits of design in the rear of the crossover, which is exceptionally flat and square back there.
Hyundai calls the design “an unconventional approach with a lifestyle-based design typology,” and if you have any idea what that means, let us know. What we get from it is that the Hyundai Santa Fe is designed to have more cargo space inside than before. Hyundai calls it “best-in-class” for space, and boasts that the large tailgate makes it feel like a terrace.
There’s no powertrain information yet, but Hyundai is talking a bit about interior tech. The Santa Fe will get a curved display inside, linking with the dash display as we’ve seen in other Hyundais. The model will also use sustainable materials including a headliner, mats, and second and third-row seat backs made from recycled plastic. The door trim covers are “eco-friendly leatherette.”
The all-new Hyundai Santa Fe will debut in full with details next month.
