More information is starting to trickle out from Hyundai about its redesigned 2019 Santa Fe SUV, and now some new exterior and interior images provide a good idea of what to expect from the new production version of the Hyundai flagship crossover. The full public debut is set to take place at the Geneva Motor Show in March, but the official launch will take place at a special event later this month, and these images are sure to keep interest high until then.
The South Korean automaker had previously released a very dark teaser photograph showing the profile of the three-row crossover, and then last week Hyundai revealed a pair of renderings showing what can only be described as a big, imposing and muscular SUV. Although the latest images are not a huge departure from the last set of renderings, they do show a number of notable differences.
One obvious difference is the cabin of the one believed to be very close to the final production model isn’t as low-slung as the previous renderings. That means the new Santa Fe will continue to be a seriously passenger-focused model.
Unsurprisingly, the huge wheels on the previous drawings have been watered down to something more sensible and less aggressive, and the bulging flanks of the previous renderings have also now been toned down a little. However, the cascading grille, upright front fascia, twin headlights and prominent crease along the profile just underneath the windows all remain.
Hyundai has also revealed that the new generation Santa Fe will be a little bigger than the current model as this one will measure 4 770 mm in length, 1 890 mm wide, and will have a longer wheelbase to deliver extra space and comfort for its passengers.
Details of the powertrains have not been revealed so far, but it has been confirmed the new Santa Fe will feature plenty of the latest safety technology such as Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist and Safety Exit Assist. – AFP Relaxnews
