Hyundai is introducing the N-type of vehicles since 2017. Over these two years, those models gained huge success. Santa Fe is another company’s model that will carry the N badge, after the i30 and Veloster models. The upcoming 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe N will represent a high-performance version that comes with more sportiness, quickness, and acceleration.
Besides the Santa Fe, Tucson and Kona are another likely candidates for the “N” variants. High-performance crossovers are becoming a thing in the markets nowadays.
2020 Hyundai Santa Fe N Offers Stunning Design
The forthcoming 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe N will arrive with sportiness. Also, the exterior design will be more aggressive than the design of the base model. We can expect numerous updates. That includes additional chrome trims, blacked-out features and much more. For instance, front grille will be brand-new.
Headlights are slimmer and the mentioned grille will be larger. Bumpers will add more aggressiveness and side vents will be larger too. The “N” badge on the grille will sport red accents and the side skirts will be extended. Also, those skirts are available in black color with the same red accenting. Ride height is lower and the rear part will also hold numerous blacked-out features. The spoiler is new and black roof looks luxurious.
Cabin Is Gorgeous and Spacious
Just like the exterior, the interior design will be changed in comparison with the base model. The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe N will look stylish and unique. Comfort is better now and the cabin will offer generous space. The seats are looking sporty and the interior is practical. Cup holders are now on a better position and within a driver’s reach. The dashboard will be three-dimensional and it will offer a larger infotainment display. Unlike the base Santa Fe, the “N” variant will get plenty of standard safety systems.
That also includes numerous driver-assistance features. Amenities such as rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control are all standard. Blind spot monitoring is optional, just like the forward collision warning. Santa Fe N now offers a rear-seat occupant alert system. Blue contrast stitching looks both subtle and stylish.
The base model already offers numerous engine choices. One of those engine options will power the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe N. This high-performance version will deploy Hyundai’s new Theta III engine. A 2.5-liter turbocharged engine will deliver over 300 horsepower. Unlike i30 N and Veloster N models, Santa Fe N is a significantly heavier vehicle.
That is the main reason why Hyundai opted for this turbo unit. Besides that, Hyundai will install new five-mode selector and suspension will be re-tuned.
2020 Hyundai Santa Fe N Price and Release Date
Ford Edge ST is looking amazing and it comes with great performance. The new Hyundai Santa Fe N will try to beat its biggest rival in every possible category. That includes design, performance, and price.
For that reason, Santa Fe N will most likely start below Edge ST in terms of pricing. We are still waiting for full details. High-performance SUV will hit the dealerships in the fourth quarter of 2019.
