You wouldn't expect a volume brand like Hyundai to make performance parts for one of its SUVs, but that's exactly what it's gone and done — even if they're admittedly more on the aesthetic side of "performance parts."
Yes, the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe is already getting some dress-up items courtesy of the N Performance division, just a short time since it was unveiled in June, according the Korean Car Blog.
The upgrades include a deeper front bumper, black grille with vertical strakes and copper squares; two hood vents; a roof-mounted spoiler; and a carbon-fibre rear diffuser that molds into the redesigned rear bumper. There are also 21-inch alloy wheels with a seven-spoke pattern, accented by gold lines around the edges.
The changes aren't entirely just skin-deep, we should clarify: inside the cabin is a sea of Alcantara upholstery, with carbon fibre adorning everything from the steering wheel and door panels to the dashboard.
There's even a range of accessories that Hyundai has named "TUIX," which includes rubber floor mats, LED interior lighting, a pet package, rear-seat entertainment system, and even a tent.
As good as the upgrades look, they are unfortunately all show and no go. Hyundai hasn't played with anything under the hood, which means this custom Sante Fe would still has the same performance.
Hyundai Canada says whether or not the parts will eventually make it to our shores remains to be seen, but for now they will only be offered to South Korean buyers.
