The T-shaped daytime running lights generate a distinctive light signature, while the redesigned cascading grille and front bumper create a wide and imposing appearance. The new Santa Fe has a new Gen 3 modular architecture for enhanced driving performance. It also features a Smartstream 2.2 Diesel engine paired to an 8-speed wet DCT transmission, a first for Hyundai SUVs.

What’s next for Hyundai?
HMPH is implementing aggressive strategies to disrupt the market and grab consumers' attention. A nationwide service campaign and warranty program that aims to highlight the brands enhanced after sales is a significant component of this initiative. To reach more customers, the corporation will increase its dealer network from 38 to 45 by the year 2023.

“Now that we are starting to introduce these models, we will ensure that the brand is accessible to all our customers through the launch of Hyundai Live in September. This is a two-way communication with our customers using the website as our online showroom that will provide information to meet our customers’ needs” added Mr. Lee.

“There are a lot of benefits in joining CAMPI and for us to join them at this opportune time would give us a huge boost. There is so much excitement and interest in what we will do next and we can’t wait to show everyone once again what Hyundai Motor is all about,” added Mr. Lee.

The Palisade and Ioniq 5, the latter of which is a full-fledged electric car, will be added to HMPH's lineup of vehicles in order to broaden the company's offerings. This further demonstrates HMPH's dedication to a diverse vehicle portfolio, one that is not afraid to introduce market-driven innovation.

HMPH is also in the process of switching from the Association of Vehicle Importers and Distributors Inc (AVID) to its rival car group Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc (CAMPI) due to CAMPI's shared vision of collaborating with key stakeholders for the benefit of the entire motoring industry.
