Explore the design of Santa Fe.
Designed to make a statement.
Big, bold and beautiful, Santa Fe 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 the new 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 the new design to achieve harmony and refinement.
We modernized the 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.
A rugged yet refined beauty.
Bigger, bolder and more distinctive, Santa Fe has been redesigned from the ground up. Artfully combining a rugged presence with sleek sophistication, new design changes inside and out are making a unique statement in the large SUV segment.

The bold wide grille with its distinctive 3D pattern flows elegantly into the main headlamps, embracing them for a more integrated look.
New 20’’ alloy wheels
Big and bold. The Santa Fe is the first Hyundai in Europe to offer optional 20” wheels for diesel powertrains. Plug-in hybrid and hybrid variants can be equipped with 19’’ dedicated versions as max.
Wider, more dynamic wheel arches.
Wider wheel arch claddings and new alloy wheel designs, including a 20-inch option, reinforce the strong character of Santa Fe.
Bold new front bumper design.
On the lower bumper, the robust skid plate embraces the lower air intake, visually emphasising the grille architecture. Robust aerodynamic inlets improve airflow efficiency and add a visual highlight.
New Luxury Package.
For the first time in a Hyundai, Santa Fe offers a Luxury Package for an even more sophisticated feel. It includes a dedicated 20” wheel design with bumpers and side cladding in body paint colour.

Floating center console
One of the most notable features of the upgraded interior is the “floating” centre console that flows elegantly into the leather-covered crash pad in a smooth curve. Wrapped in soft material and boasting a plethora of high tech features, the new console accentuates the premium feel in the cabin.
Cup holder cover.
