Hyundai Santa Fe Convertible is the Newest Popemobile

Pope Francis sure has a thing for Korean cars.

After using the Kia Soul as a Popemobile, Pope Francis turned to a Hyundai Santa Fe convertible as his latest ride, further reinforcing his statement that priests should drive “humble” cars. Pope Francis is known for preaching about humility and one of his first acts was to get rid of the traditional Mercedes-Benz Popemobile for something more frugal, with his latest ride being a one-off convertible crossover from Hyundai.

Surprisingly, the Hyundai Santa Fe convertible Popemobile is completely open with no glass protecting from potential bullets and with dismal things that could happen. The Hyundai Santa Fe convertible sports a Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet-like style to it, with additional grab handles and bars for Pope Francis to hold onto.

    you know what would’ve been cool? if he got a Citröen with the trick hydropneumatic suspension that can stay perfectly level even when one wheel is gone. It saved the life of Charles de Gaulle. Too bad Citröen is getting rid of it.

    The DS is one of my all-time favorite cars! I’d love to have a 2CV in the garage as well.
