2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Release date
This new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe will be 3rd generation of this popular SUV model. His first generation was released 10 years ago and we think this new one can make him last over 10 more years. Previous generation is present on the market for almost 5 years and we think that now, this new 2018 Santa Fe really deserves something new. There aren`t yet that much information`s about this model so we need to gather those reliable ones really carefully. Let`s see what we know about it so far. We are sure that you`ll be satisfied.
2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Exterior and Interior Style, Changes
We`ve managed to find some latest pictures of 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe. All of them tells us that Hyundai`s engineers and designers had more than serious job. New Santa Fe remains that famous shape and the size it had before. That can place him in the big-size SUV category and all the Hyundai wants is to place him in the top of that category.
What will be changed is his weight. We expect it to be reduced thanks to better materials usage in the chassis. It is visible that some changes can happen on his exterior. For example, biggest one will be placed on the front fascia. There will be larger headlights which will now feature new set of lamps to make it work even better. Great thing about them is that they can save some energy as well. Grille will be wider and now it can really make new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe look stronger and more muscular.
Fog lights are now made in C-shape and they really suit him well. Sides are equipped with new lines and with new side mirrors design. Now, Santa Fe is placed on 20.0-inch alloy wheels when it comes to the basic trim level. Rear part is equipped with larger and squarer shape of the taillights. Both of the bumpers will be revised and both of them will look stronger than before. There will be great exterior color choices as well so you won`t have to worry about it.
Great thing about the cabin of new 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe is that it`s going to look luxury and classy but made to be affordable. That means that the cabin of new Santa Fe will be made using top quality materials but not those that can take the fortune out of your pocket. Even though we can`t expect some top quality materials, instrument board will be made using softest materials after all. Instrument board will be bigger than before but it`ll be made with less buttons than before which is their attempt to make it more modern and more technologically advanced.
