Rumors About 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Changes & Updates
According to some reports the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe might have interesting updates. Although the complete redesign of this mid-size SUV isn’t so close, the possible improvements would refresh it enough. We can’t fully believe to various articles on this topic, but it seems that the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe might have some cosmetic changes, which will improve its exterior, more luxurious interior and a new engine option. Those changes are minor, but when we make a list, the 2015 Santa Fe looks pretty improved. As for the release, we can’t say anything reliable about it, but some sources claim that the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe will be introduced at the Paris Motor Show this fall and it will be available by the summer 2015. If this SUV gets a new engine and all the other changes, it will be very competitive within its market segment. Having that in mind, we hope that the price of the refreshed Santa Fe won’t be significantly higher, so all the people who would like to buy in next year would benefit from this update. Of course, we have to be patient to find out whether this is true, because all of the announced improvements are based on rumors and speculations.
2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Update — Exterior And Interior
The 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe will, naturally, come in two versions. It will be available as a five- and a seven-seater. The seven-seater will have a special moniker: 2015 Hyundai Grand Santa Fe. As for the changes, some sources say that the refreshed version of this SUV will have improved fascias. With some styling tweaks, it won’t diverge from the original design, but it may look fresh and modern. We can expect a new front bumper and reshaped headlights. The interior will have high-quality materials and some additional features, but we don’t know anything more about it at this point.
Expanding Engine Lineup Of 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe?
If 2015 Santa Fe gets a new engine option, this update will be pretty important, since it won’t bring cosmetic changes only. There are speculations about a new 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four which delivers 190 horsepower. Of course, it’s expected that another engine option remains a direct-injected 3.3-liter GDI V-6 engine, which powers the current version of this SUV. This engine is able to generate 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. No need to mention that the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe comes with the Active Eco system, which improves EPA fuel economy and CO2 emissions. The V-6 engine will probably be paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox, while the new four-cylinder engine may get either this old or a completely new transmission. Although there were some announcements of the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe hybrid, this kind of powertrain won’t be installed yet, or it’s a well kept secret.
2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Rumors, Speculations And Expected Premiere
Like we said earlier, all of those announced changes should be taken with caution. Since there was no official confirmation, we may be disappointed if nothing happens. However, we’ll be able to see whether those announcements were true or not. The 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe should reveal its changes by the end of this year, if something is improved at all.
