First and foremost, the exterior has some minor updates to differentiate it from its pre-facelifted model. First, you will see some improved HID headlamps, revised grille, slightly revised rear lamps, and a new front bumper that looks like it came from its little brother, the latest-generation Tucson.

The interior's slightly revised with a new instrumental panel, and for high-spec models, JBL Premium Surround System with 10 speakers. It's still available in either a 5-seater or a 7-seater, just to let you know.

Safety wise, the 2016MY Santa Fe comes with numerous safety features, be it same, updated, or new, such as Smart High Beam Assist, Dynamic Bending Light, Lane Departure Warning System, Smart Blind Spot Detection, Advanced Smart Cruise Control, Around View Monitor, and Advanced Smart Parking Assist System.

It still comes with the same e-VGT R2.0 and e-VGT R2.2 diesel engines as usual.
