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.
