Hyundai Santa Fe Design
The brand new Hyundai Santa Fe is based on Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture design styling like the Hyundai i40. The Santa Fe changes this with an innovative design concept called Storm Edge, which Hyundai says to captures the strong and dynamic images produced by nature during the creation of a storm.
2012 Hyundai SUV includes sharper lines in profile than before, and the face has a more aggressive look. The current hexagonal grille has been integrated and the images appear to demonstrate the presence of lower bumper extensions for a better visual impact.
