      Hyundai's midsize SUV Santa Fe sold over 100,000 vehicles for the first time in Korea last year since its launch 19 years ago.

      The feat was attributed to an increase in sales to women in their 30s amid the rising popularity of SUVs.

      Hyundai said Wednesday, "We sold 107,202 Santa Fe SUVs in the domestic market last year, up 7.5 percent from the previous year."
