Wow! It looks like Hyundai is ahead of itself. If it does go to dealerships before Christmas then I say Hyundai is too early. If it comes after New Year's then Hyundai is on the right track. Though I do believe the photos Vince posted was in Korea. It looks like Korea to me.
The styling on this vehicle is so unattractive but the front is stylish enough to attract the averages.

Fast track on this. If you look on the first photo where the black Santa Fe is look behind it. It's the current generation Santa Fe. However it's not easly visible because of the simliar side styling on the 2006 Santa Fe versus the current one.

These are some of the best pics of this vehicle you've posted, Vince. It looks sooo much better in color!

I didn't take these photos.
I don't get to go to Korea evey day, you know...
( I did go 4 years ago for a week)

I think it looks prety nice. No worse than most SUVs.
And from what I've seen . the interior looks pretty upscale.
I'm not sure what people expected. But I didn't think it was going to be spectacular.

FYI these are all Korean market only. The US spec'd version will be built in Alabama. Test production is already underway with US launch slated to begin in spring of '06. From what I've learned the interior is very upscale and the fit and finish is on par with LX 330.

The overall look of the '07 Santa Fe is definitely a step-up compared to the current model. Consider some of the features that come as standard amenities like: Air Quality Control System. standard front, side and side curtain air bags, anti-lock brakes with brake force distribution, front/rear air, traction and stability control, tire pressure monitoring system, tilt, telescoping steering wheel.

These are just a short intro of standard features that will be available. Although no pricing information has yet to be announced specualtion has it near 23-25k.

On the last comment it states LX330 I think the person is saying RX330. If it's on par with that vehicles then hands up with Hyundai.

Is the 3rd row actually usable? Can someone get in and out without hurting themselves?
