Hyundai’s 2016 Santa Fe has been unveiled in its home market of South Korea this week, offering a first official look at the refreshed SUV.

Styling updates are limited to a revised grille garnish and a new front bumper, while the rear gains a more premium LED lighting design, a subtly revised bumper and resculpted exhaust tips.

A significant update has occurred under the skin, however, with new High Strength Steel components now used in the chassis and body shell. This is likely a play to improve on the Santa Fe’s ‘marginal’ rating in the American IIHS overlap crash test.

Key technology updates include a new autonomous emergency braking system, along with blind-spot monitoring, surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control and dynamic headlights that turn into corners.

There’s also a new high- and low-pressure airbag deployment control system, which determines the necessary force for airbag release depending on the severity of a collision.

Australian launch timing and specifications are still to be confirmed, although we can likely expect the large SUV to continue here with its 2.4 litre petrol and 2.2 litre diesel engines.

Watch for more details on the refreshed Santa Fe to come in the near future.
