Hyundai has unveiled the 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe, pulling the wrapper on an all-new fifth-generation for the brand’s midsize crossover. Highlights include a new design inside and out that prioritizes cargo capacity and practicality, as well as the return of a three-row seating configuration, previously offered in the third-generation Santa Fe XL. When it goes on sale, the 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe will rival the two-row Chevy Blazer crossover.
Outside, the all-new 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe presents a longer wheelbase, as well as a large tailgate, the latter of which provides ample access to the rear cargo area. Hyundai’s H-light design motif is seen front and back, and includes H-shaped headlamps that also enhance the crossover’s front-end girth. The exterior shows off a defined, upright shape that underlines the model’s utility-oriented demeanor, complemented by large, boxy fenders, a short front overhang, and plus-sized 21-inch wheels.
Further H-shaped designs were added in the new cabin, which places an emphasis on space thanks to its fully foldable second- and third-row seating. High-tech features include a Panoramic Curved Display that connects a 12.3-inch digital cluster and the infotainment system in a series of horizontal readouts, as well as dual wireless device charging. Cabin materials include soft-touch wood-patterned garnish, as well as Nappa leather upholstery. There’s also a series of eco-friendly materials offered, such as recycled-plastic suede for the headliner, mats, and second- and third-row seatbacks, and eco-friendly leatherette for the crash pad and door trim covers.
Hyundai declined to detail the powertrain specs, but the 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe is expected to cradle a turbocharged 2.5L I4 gasoline engine, with front-wheel drive as standard and all-wheel drive as optional. A hybrid option is also expected.
The all-new 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe will get its full world premier next month on Hyundai’s YouTube channel. As already mentioned, the 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe will rival the two-row Chevy Blazer, while the larger Hyundai Palisade rivals the Chevy Traverse and (now-larger-for-2024) GMC Acadia.
