Hyundai is of course, famous company and we can honestly say that one of their most popular model is definitely Santa Fe which was firstly introduced on the market for more than 15 years ago. Now, Hyundai announced that 3rd generation of this full-size SUV will be released in 2018 year. New 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe will be even larger than before as Hyundai`s attempt to make him even more popular, especially on the US market.
2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Changes
As we`ve said, new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe will be a bit larger and it`s going to be placed on a bit longer wheelbase than before. Overall shape of Santa Fe will be the same as before but Hyundai will try to make him have the same weight as before or even a bit reduced. Knowing that, we know that new Santa Fe will have more aluminum and carbon fiber use in the chassis as two of the best lightweight materials. Front part will probably be equipped with the biggest changes this time.
There will be brand new grille design and redesigned headlights which will be larger than before. Both of the bumpers on the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe are reinforced and designed with larger fog lights. New Santa Fe will be placed on 19.0-inch alloy wheels which can really make him look classier and finer than before. What is great about the Hyundai`s models is that they are always trying to add more exterior color options than before so we expect to see new Santa Fe with some new ones as well. It is still unsure how will cabin of new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe look because Hyundai still don`t want to reveal anything official about it. We know that the passengers will have even more room inside than before and every one of the 7 passengers how much it can be placed inside will have more cargo room as well. Better ambient lighting is announced to be found inside new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe and it is announced that instrument board will be equipped with less buttons than before. When it comes to the functionality inside new Santa Fe, we can only say that all the functions which were present before will be updated and that definitely some of the new ones will be added but we still don`t know which of them.
2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Engine
Engine unit for new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe is the most hidden thing about him. There are a lot of rumors about it but we still don`t know precise information`s about it so we can only speculate.
