Hyundai Motor Company recently revealed the all-new, fifth-generation Santa Fe. The automaker is no stranger to bold designs but the new Santa Fe is most certainly the boldest we’ve ever seen from Hyundai. The newcomer boasts a box-shaped exterior and a modern, and seemingly spacious interior with some new tech. Hyundai is mum on powertrains details, safety etc., however those should be announced at a later date.
Bold new exterior design
As mentioned above, the new Santa Fe has been radically redesigned with a boxy shape and a distinctive silhouette are derived from its long wheelbase and wide tailgate area. Highlights include a high hood, H-shaped head and taillights, bold, sharp fenders and large 21-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the new Santa Fe has a modish cabin with three-row seating and ‘ample room for cargo’. Some noteworthy features include a Panoramic Curved Display which connects the 12.3-inch digital cluster and the infotainment displays, dual wireless charging, an optional double sunroof, an H-motif design applied to the dashboard and air vents, soft-touch wood-patterned garnish and Nappa leather seats with delicate embroidery.
The new SUV also incorporates a number of sustainable materials. The suede headliner, car mats, and second- and third-row seatbacks are made from recycled plastic, while the crash pad and door trim covers are made from eco-friendly leatherette.
Hyundai will expand further on engines, safety and driver assistance systems, exterior and interior dimensions, and availability.
