Delhi : Hyundai Motor Company also unveiled the Santa Fe XRT Concept, which was created especially to meet the demands of outdoor enthusiasts, alongside the 2024 Santa Fe. It has been designed to be able to handle difficult terrain with confidence and ease and to provide consumers with a variety of outdoor needs. However, the OEM does not currently have any intentions for the concept's mass production.

The body of the XRT Concept has been modified for off-road use with larger tires, a raised suspension, and several off-road accessories. Due to Hyundai's emphasis on its off-roading skills, it has a more rugged and boxy appearance than the conventional Santa Fe. Although detailed information about the changes made to the XRT Concept is not yet accessible, it is clear that several underbody changes have been made, including better approach and departure angles.

Outdoor attachments include a ladder on the back tailgate and an upgraded roof rack with a cargo carrier and a spare tire. The XRT Concept resembles the Land Rover Defeneder because load compartments are attached to the rearmost side windows.

The fifth generation of the standard Santa Fe has a revised design language starting in 2024. It will be sold on the international market with a variety of engine choices. Hyundai has not yet made an official announcement on the debut of the new Santa Fe in India. In India, the SUV was withdrawn in 2017.

The 2024 Santa Fe has seen the most significant changes, including a dramatic and boxy new look. The OEM appears to have taken inspiration from the Exter when using 'H'-shaped lighting components. The tailgate has become rather broad at the back and has horizontally stacked LED tail lamps that likewise create a "H."

It is propelled by a 1.6-liter turbocharged hybrid engine, a 1.6-liter turbocharged plug-in hybrid engine, a 2.5-litre turbocharged engine, a 2.5-litre normally aspirated engine, or a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated engine. Depending on the area where the SUV is being sold, the engine and gearbox arrangement will change.
