According to latest car news, the interior of the next-gen Santa Fe will come loaded with new head-up display and refreshed infotainment system and the outside will gain a big grille and split headlights borrowed from its brother KONA. In addition, the two-row Santa Fe Sport might have a new name while the three-row counterpart would be built bigger and tougher in terms of size and appearance. By doing so, the Korean carmaker aims to further distinguish these two models as customers usually get confused because of their similar appearance.

The Hyundai Santa Fe takes its name from the historical city of Santa Fe in Mexicom, starting out as a compact crossover in its first two generations before being upgraded to a midsize crossover by the time its third iteration came about. Now on its fourth generation, the Santa Fe features increased dimensions accompanied by a streamlined shape, along with an interior equipped with various tech and convenience features.
In the Philippines, Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (HARI) markets the Santa Fe in two levels of trim: the GLS Mid and High variants, both with a 2.2L common-rail diesel engine mated to a 4x2 drivetrain. These are available in six color options.
