Hyundai plans to launch three new or refreshed models in the next year including the i30 (known here as the Elantra Touring), the new Santa Fe and the revised i20. All three vehicles will make their official debut at next months Frankfurt auto show.
The Korean automaker has not released much information on the Santa Fe, other than it’s coming, and is expected to follow Hyundai’s current styling scheme. Tony Whitehorn, managing director of Hyundai UK, said: “We’ve already shown with our other recent models that each car that comes out of this company is quite improved, both technically and in terms of emotional appeal.”
The Santa Fe will also likely feature styling cues from the smaller 2012 Tucson. Sources have noted that the new Santa Fe will get a new “ix” name in Europe to fit in with the rest of Hyundai’s lineup. However the Sante Fe nameplate is well recognized in North America and is not expected to change anytime soon. Stay tuned for more details!
