Hyundai is almost fully committed to its electrification efforts, but it hasn’t forgotten its flagship SUV that has made it this far. That’s why 2024 will see an all-new Santa Fe. The model is the first complete facelift since 2018 and brings a surprising change to the look of the Santa Fe.
The first and most impactful change from the update was the style of Santa Fe, transforming it into a boxy, beefy looking family hauler. According to Hyundai, the shape of the Santa Fe was used to convey a sense of grandeur, given the high bonnet, sharp fenders and unique H-shaped headlights that follow other H-shaped shapes on the front fascia. It is said that there is In this SUV he is fitted with 21-inch wheels and looks like a piece of a serious off-roader. The automaker has also lengthened the Santa Fe’s wheelbase, and although no new measurements are available, the change should improve the ride and interior space of the popular SUV.
Hyundai said the new Santa Fe was designed with lifestyle use in mind. The interior follows the same His H-Heavy styling as the SUV’s exterior, with his second and third row seats that fold flat. Equipped with a curved panoramic display with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, Hyundai said the Santa Fe cabin uses contrasting upholstery colors and premium materials throughout. The interior design incorporates sustainable materials, with the headliner and part of the seat back made from recycled plastic. Still, the SUV has more traditional luxury accents like wood trim and embroidered nappa leather.
Details about the specs and configuration of the new Santa Fe are unknown, but images shared by Hyundai appear to show a 2.5T badge and HTRAC script on the rear of the SUV. The automaker plans to share more details on YouTube during the full-scale unveiling in Santa Fe next month. Hyundai also recently unveiled the Ioniq 5N, so it looks like it’s going to be a busy year for the Korean automaker.
