2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Unveiled With Polarizing Design

It seems like just yesterday that the current Santa Fe came on sale... that's because it was. The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe debuted as a bigger replacement for the aging Santa Fe Sport, just as the Palisade took the Santa Fe XL's place. Fast forward to 2020, and the 2021 facelift arrives. Yes, the interior is more luxurious, but the exterior is a bit too bold for our liking.

The new Santa Fe has new front and rear fascias, along with an updated interior and infotainment screen. The front end receives new headlight and fog light designs with a new grille that holds it all in place. The rear has new connecting taillights and reflectors. The highest trim seems to have paint-color body cladding, which did not come with the 2019-2020 model.

The interior receives new tech, such as updated software and hybrid technology. New colors also seem to be available, such as a white and gray duo. Hopefully this new styling doesn't scare away buyers, because it might. Prepare for more bold styling from Hyundai, the Tucson is next.
