Hyundai has shown what can be achieved by offering N Performance Parts for its new Santa Fe SUV. Take a look…
Yes, you read that correctly, much like how BMW offers M Performance Parts for its vehicles, Hyundai’s N division is offering N Performance Parts for some of its vehicles, including the refreshed Santa Fe, which might have you asking the question, is N the new M?
Anyway, the bad news is that it’s only offered to customers in Hyundai’s home market of South Korea at this stage.
Some of the bits on offer include sportier front and rear bumpers, a striking N performance grille, carbon fibre bonnet trim, carbon fibre diffuser, carbon fibre side mirror housings, 21-inch N wheels shod with N Performance brakes, rear spoiler, fender flares and side steps. Moving inside, quilted Alcantara N sport seats can be had along with carbon fibre accents.
In standard form, the newly facelifted Santa Fe’s design is far from boring and many might argue that the N Performance Parts are not necessary, which is a fair view to hold.
The facelifted Santa Fe’s exact arrival in South Africa has yet to be confirmed but 2021 seems likely. Stay tuned for updates!
