Hyundai will keep the name “Santa Fe” for the new vehicle, continuing the solid brand heritage of the automaker’s most representative SUV model. The all-new Santa Fe, which is entering its third generation, has reached worldwide cumulative sales of about 2.56 million units since its 2000 debut.

The third-generation Santa Fe features a more aggressive interpretation of Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy which Hyundai designers have dubbed “Storm Edge”. The design adopts the hexagonal grille – a key design cue of the Hyundai family look – a two-tone voluminous bottom car body and wider front and rear bumpers, creating a futuristic and urban-style SUV image.

The all-new Santa Fe will break cover at the upcoming New York International Auto Show in April.
