    2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Debuts With Daring Styling

    Introducing the updated Santa Fe and it's more than just a standard midlife facelift. In fact, it now rides on a new platform and has a redesigned interior as well. The exterior, however, is what catches the eyes first.

    The midsize crossover is wider than before and features a bold grille that extends the entire width of the front. Depending on trim level, the grille also has unique trim patterns but all Santa Fes receive integrated T-shaped daytime running lights. The already narrow headlights have also been restyled.

    Looks good - Hyundai has definitely stepped up it game on interiors. They were horrible for so many years.

    SantaFe is very popular in the Toronto area, see them everywhere. I guess that's probably the biggest rub, they are the Honda Civic of small SUVs. Ubiquitous.

    That’s a very daring and bold design. Definitely a shot across the bow of everything out there.

    Bold grill, I'm not sure I'm crazy about it, but I give Hyundai points for being bold.

    The Santa Fe is slowly moving out of 'small' status and moving toward midsized.....The Tucson has taken over the compact class at Hyundai, and the Kona and Venue are even smaller. I know the current Santa Fe is already larger than the likes of the Tuscon, Rav4, CR-V, and Equinox...and it seems this new one is going to grow slightly.

    Has the Santa Fe ever really been "small" - since the 2006 model it's been large enough to have 3-row versions with 7 seats on the standard wheelbase version in many global markets, avoiding the need for the long-wheelbase version, and while it's clearly not comparable with North American full-size SUVs it can't be considered small by any measure.

    “Bold grille” is one of the oldest and very overused automotive marketing terms.

    But then on occasion it truly is applicable. Like this one, for example.

    That sounds much nicer. Still, the design itself is rather imposing and intimidating. It reminds me of those big rig grilles with the huge teeth on them. Those aggressive drivers invariably get within five feet of my bumper when I'm doing 55 in the left lane just to save fuel for everybody. Who do they think they are anyway?
    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    Some people just don't appreciate the true good in goody-two-shoes behavior. They have real nerve! Haven't they seen the old ads, "Go fitty five and save lives!"? What is wrong with people?

    Jeez, I don't know about that. I wasn't too fond of the latest grille but this thing takes it to a different level in the strange kind of direction.
