The car has a high-end look both inside and out, thanks to design cues and features that even the pickiest car fans will like. The T-shaped daytime running lights make a unique light pattern, and the redesigned cascading grille and front bumper make the car look wide and powerful. The Gen 3 modular architecture of the new Santa Fe makes it easier to drive. It also has a Smartstream 2.2 Diesel engine and an 8-speed wet DCT transmission, which is something Hyundai SUVs have never had before.

To shake up the market and attract customers, HMPH is employing aggressive measures. An important part of this project is a national service advertising and warranty program that highlights the companies’ improved after-sales support. By 2023, the firm plans to expand its dealer network from 38 to 45 in order to serve more clients.

To increase the variety of cars offered by HMPH, the Palisade and Ioniq 5, the latter of which is an all electric vehicle, will be added. This highlights HMPH’s commitment to a varied vehicle lineup and its willingness to include market-driven innovation.

Due to CAMPI’s shared vision of working with important stakeholders for the benefit of the entire motoring industry, HMPH is also in the process of switching from the Association of Vehicle Importers and Distributors Inc (AVID) to its rival auto group Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc (CAMPI).
