Korean photo spies reveal the interior of the “global” Santa Fe after restyling

The first photo of the interior of the updated “global” Hyundai Santa Fe appeared on the Web. With planned restyling, the mid-size all-terrain vehicle will lose the transmission selector, climate control washers and feature a new multimedia interface.

Buyers of Santa Fe will not get a digital “cockpit” in the spirit of the new S-Class – a radically redesigned interior will be offered only in China, because even the Creta has a similar interior with a minimum of physical buttons in China.

For “global” Santa Fe, planned restyling will not change the architecture of the front panel, door cards or steering wheel – improvements will affect mainly the central tunnel, which will become much higher. The diagonal of the widescreen touchscreen will increase, and the display itself will be located slightly lower.

The updated Santa Fe will “inherit” the Palisade flagship crossover from the choice of driving modes and the multimedia system control puck – Hyundai refused the usual gearbox selector and the “physical” interface of the infotainment complex.

A feature of the novelty is the touchpads of the “climate” settings – the functional washers of the air conditioning system on the updated Santa Fe were dismissed. However, there are still a lot of analog keys, and the mid-size SUV did not go along the path of the “younger” Tuscon.

The current Hyundai Santa Fe debuted in 2018, so that the premiere of the updated version can be expected at the end of 2020 or at the beginning of 2021. No radical changes in appearance are expected, but the lineup of engines can be reviewed: according to rumors, the restyled Santa Fe will receive units from the fourth generation Sorento.
