2021 Hyundai Santa Fe


Hyundai has just released a teaser photo of the new 2021 Santa Fe.
And, as you can see, this isn't just a simple mid-cycle facelift. With just a slightly new front and.
Since, at least from that angle, it looks all new.
We know most of the profile design will stay very similar to the current model. But the rear end should also be significantly redesigned.
As for the interior, we have seen it HERE.

The amazing part, is theta the 2021 model will be using a new platform. Hyundai/Kia has done it before (switching platform in the middle of a life-cycle) but it still seems like quite a drastic move.
This will allow the 2021 model to be offered as a plug-in hybrid model as well as a regular hybrid.

This could be some serious competition for the recently released Toyota Venza.

I think Hyundai is doing a great job with their designs, yes the Sonata is a bit of a mess on the front end, but everything else seems to be hitting the right notes. Remember we all enthusiasts bash companies for being too bland and generic, looking at you VW, AUDI and BMW, so great to see a car company emphasizing out of the box (pun intended) designs.

I like the new interior direction on the Santa Fe, and now pleasantly impressed with the front end teaser. Keep it up Hyundai.

They simply know how to design good looking cars. Honda is still trying to find a designer....

Man, that looks so much better. Hyundai and Genesis starting to find their way again. Although, why the USA got the ugly Sonata front bumper and Korea got the nice one is a mystery. Hopefully, they will update it in 2 years.

Is it just me, or is the current car design trend veering towards making updated versions look "more possessed"?

nice design, sure. if you're into good storage capacity and also you're in the occult.

I just want the cute new Honda Fit in a manual, which they won't sell stateside. I refuse to buy any of these cars that were designed in Lucifer's Lab.

don't ever disregard the Murano. Always great looking and exquisitely finished... i own one of course but i did replace a lexus with it. I'm every bit as pleased with my Murano this is for certain.
