After the recent refresh, 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe will come without bigger changes. What is great about this crossover is that it gives an absolutely best balance between price and quality. The original version of this mid-size crossover appeared in 2000 and we have seen three generations of it so far. The current model is present since 2012. However, the company just did a mid-cycle update, so we can say that the 2018 Santa Fe will be very fresh. It received many novelties with this facelift. There are several new styling details on both ends. Also, the interior design also received several novelties. Finally, there are plenty of new safety features available. We expect the new model to arrive somewhere late in the year.
