Big, bold and beautiful, Santa Fe Plug-in Hybrid is not for the faint of heart. Built to command the road, it also commands a lot of attention. Its wide stance and completely reimagined design will have heads turning.
20 Years of Santa Fe – the evolution of an icon.
Hyundai introduced the first-generation Santa Fe in the year 2000, making us one of the pioneers in the SUV market. Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, the hugely successful Santa Fe has become an icon for the brand. Take a look back with us at how our first SUV has evolved over the years.
Designing look – from sketch to the show room.
At the beginning of the design process, the initial sketches are usually no more than rough drafts drawn with pencils on paper. For Santa Fe, the design team focused on achieving a calmer, more sophisticated form language. It underlines the wide stance and strength of design to achieve harmony and refinement.
We modernized Santa Fe with premium features and appealing aesthetics that are sure to add value. The bold lines that extend from one side to the other and from front to back give Santa Fe a rugged yet refined look that SUV customers want. Besides, we have added numerous features and functions to create a truly family-focused SUV that is a pleasure to drive.
