Hyundai Gives 2021 Santa Fe A Thorough Refresh With Daring Face And New Platform
This is the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe and while the car manufacturer has yet to announce all specifications for the SUV, it has showcased the new design in full.
As a recent teaser image indicated, the new Santa Fe does look quite a lot different than the outgoing model, even though this is not an entirely new-generation. The visual alterations start at the front end where there is a new wide grille, pictured below with two different mesh designs. Not only does the grille look quite striking but it integrates the main headlamps. Hyundai has also designed split, T-shaped LED daytime running lights, which do remind of Volvo’s Thor DRLs even if from a different angle.
The 2021 Santa Fe now sits on a set of new 20-inch wheels (pictured) and will be offered with a handful of other wheel designs in smaller sizes. Found at the rear are revised taillights with a subtle light bar. There is also a large reflector running the width of the tweaked rear bumper.
The Korean carmaker says the updated Santa Fe is based on the third-generation Hyundai vehicle platform that promises improvements in performance, handling, fuel efficiency, and safety. Among the changes made include moving the fixed points for the steering arms closed to the middle of the front wheels to provide more agile handling. The company adds that new reinforced sound-absorbing systems in vibration-sensitive parts improve the SUV’s noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) performance.
