All-New Generation Santa Fe Launch Event

Added: 30 August 2018

Richmond Hyundai All-New Generation Santa Fe Launch Event

Friday 24th August saw the exclusive Pre-Launch Event of Hyundai’s All-New Generation Santa Fe across Richmond Hyundai’s three showrooms.

Portsmouth, Southampton and Guildford all celebrated the range topping SUV as it was unveiled for the first time in the UK to crowds of selected loyal customers who had already purchased their current vehicles from Richmond Hyundai.

There was an excellent turnout across all three sites in two different counties. Guests were treated to a Champagne reception with delicious canapés and live entertainment, which consisted of two superb string quartets for Portsmouth and Southampton, and some soothing jazz music for our Guildford showroom - setting the mood perfectly. And as an added treat, Richmond lined up a fleet of the previous generation Santa Fe's to show the evolution of the model. Several customers generously allowed us to exhibit their cars on the night.

We spoke to some customers who let us know their thoughts. One customer, who had bought five cars from Richmond, said: "I really love the design of the new Santa Fe. It's so different to even the previous generation with its curves rather than angles. The dashboard is so intuitive and the digital speedometers are bright and easy to read."

Another gentleman at the Southampton Pre-Launch remarked: "I really like the amount of space in the front. I'm over six foot five and have loads of legroom."

Alongside the All-New Generation Santa Fe also sat the 2019 facelifted Tucson model, allowing people to compare both new models and see which best suited their needs. The 2019 Tucson has been heavily revised with an updated grille and headlights, new rear lights and an all-new interior that adds an updated Sat Nav system and revised dashboard design – giving the cabin a real breath of fresh air.

Managing Director of Richmond Hyundai, Michael Nobes, said: "We are proud to be the first dealership franchise in the UK to showcase the All-New Generation Santa Fe. It looks fantastic with stand-out styling and premium quality finishes inside the cabin. The evening was a great success, creating a lot of buzz not just over the Santa Fe but the 2019 facelifted Tucson and All-New Kona Crossover."
