What we imagined the new Hyundai Santa Fe would appear like is uncertain. But it’s at least fascinating. It seems to have unusual H-shaped design cues features 21-inch wheels below as well, whilst the back is square. Compared to the previous Santa Fe generation, the wheelbase is larger, and the inside features a panoramic curved display with two 12.3-inch displays for the dial display.
The external design manager for Hyundai, Nicola Danza, takes us around the very stunning new form and explains, “When it came time to update the Santa Fe, we had a tremendous problem. “Since it’s a car, of course it needs to be sold in America, Europe, and the home market for Hyundai. We came to understand that we required something entirely fresh. According to Danza, “In this segment, we noticed that all the cars tended to look the same.” They’re all tilted and aiming to be a sporty SUV in some way. They are large and enormous. He suggested trying to create an automobile with no styling, more productive, so let’s bring back the rectangular one instead.
Danza explains, “We had the designers truly consider whether they needed each line and each blister. ” It was almost identical to the Giugiaro style of developing automobiles in the 1970s. “We displayed the initial model of this automobile with square wheels to our management as a joke. Let’s make everything look boxy as it is a box. It has really been one of my favorite projects to work on.”
So that’s how the new Santa Fe came to be, then. And this isn’t just a concept car, this is how the final product will appear. Working at Hyundai currently is a dream for designers, claims Danza. “You could test yourself, carry out new things, and examine. Creativity tends to fade away or become more ordinary and commonplace if it isn’t fed.”
