A six seat Santa Fe with captain’s chair style arrangement released in South Korea could come to Australia in the New Year
Chasing Cars understands that the six-seat configuration might come to Australia as part of the MY22 update for the Santa Fe, following a mid-life facelift in late 2020.
The six seat arrangement trades the second-row bench seat for two individual armchairs, while the two rear seats in the third row form a bench style set up.
Currently, the Hyundai Santa Fe is available solely as a seven seater.
The seven seater features a traditional bench seat for the second and third rows, the third of which can be stowed away to create more luggage space – like many of the seven-seaters available on the market.
The six seater is likely to create a more spacious and comfortable experience for second and third row occupants – especially for the third row where it can become cramped for taller individuals.
While it hasn’t officially been confirmed by Hyundai Australia, the six-seater version is very likely to land on our shores.
Available as an AUD$900 option in South Korea, it will likely be priced similarly if it comes to Australia.
