For Hyundai, a Letter launches a whole new level of design update for its cars: NOT. Full-fledged performance variants come with N, like the Veloster N, while exclusive aesthetic updates come with N Line, like the Elantra N Line. But for those who already have their Hyundais but want to upgrade to N level, the South Korean company offers N Performance parts.
Current models with N Performance parts options are the i30 and Veloster. However, it looks like Hyundai has released the N Performance parts for its refreshed crossover, the Santa Fe.
The Korean Automotive Blog reports the statement, which will be released later this year according to the publication. It’s worth noting that N Performance parts are limited to South Korea – at least for now. Looking at the Santa Fe N Performance parts on the show model, we can’t help but wish that Hyundai would bring the upgrades to the world.
For starters, the exterior package comes with an aggressively designed front and rear bumper, rear spoiler, unique 21-inch wheels, N performance brakes, carbon diffuser, carbon hood trim, a Carbon side mirror cover, fender flare and side step, and N performance grille. The latter is one of our favorites as it departs from the sleek mesh finish of the normal Santa Fe and replaced it with a “cheese grater” grid.
Inside, the Santa Fe also receives N Performance applications in the form of N sports seats upholstered in Alcantara and carbon fiber accents. It also comes with the familiar quilted finish, elevating the interior of the Santa Fe even more.
There is no report of whether N Performance parts for the Santa Fe will be available worldwide, but if they ever will, it would be a great option for Santa Fe buyers.
