Hyundai Santa Fe Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary | Toronto, ON

It’s time to celebrate the Hyundai Santa Fe. The popular SUV model is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, marking a Hyundai milestone in Canada.  

Introduced in October 2000, the Santa Fe is the longest-running Hyundai SUV in Canada, entering its fourth generation later this year. Over the years, this vehicle has undergone a significant evolution, leading the way as a flagship for new features.

Hyundai has sold more than 5,260,000 units of the Santa Fe around the world, with over 356,226 sold in Canada as of April 2020.

“The Santa Fe was Hyundai’s first SUV, and it is one of our longest-running model lines, making it a key model not only globally but especially in Canada,” says Don Romano, president and CEO of Hyundai Auto Canada. “For Hyundai, it is an icon which continues to evolve in terms of design, safety, technology, roominess, and comfort. With this latest evolution, Santa Fe maintains its status as the safest SUV in its segment while also moving the needle forward with new electrification.”
