Here are the official images of the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe

Article by Christian A., on February 8, 2018

Hyundai has been sharing a number of teasers and spy shots of the fourth generation Hyundai Santa Fe. But on February 6th, it finally revealed press images of the said model. It now looks like a brand new car from the ground up, and is a bit of a departure from its predecessor. It’s mainly because the SUV now has a bolder exterior, as well as an interesting front fascia that features a set of slim upper lights like that of the Kona and the more eccentric looking Nexo hydrogen fuel-cell crossover.

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe now has a new “cascading grille” up front, which we first saw on the i30. The new grille really will call anyone’s attention, and is even surrounded by a secondary set of squarer lights that give the SUV its unique look, therefore making it stand out from its rivals in its segment.

Right now, the only images we have of the Santa Fe only show its exterior, but we could already see how prominent it looks - with the upper character line that runs from the front to the rear, and the more angular wheel arches that give the side profile a more rugged appearance. And for the car’s rear, we only still have the official design sketch that we saw from last month.

Moving into the car’s interior, you will be surprised as the cabin has totally been redesigned from the bottom until the top. The center console is quite similar as that of the Kona, while the infotainment system can be found on top of it. This makes it easier for the driver as he won’t have to take his eyes off the road. Though we have not seen the instrument cluster fully, we could tell that it is fully digital. The automaker mentioned a Santa Fe with a longer wheelbase, which should provide more leg space for rear passengers.

The 2019 Santa Fe will be available with either a 2.0- or a 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine for the KDM-spec model, together with a 2.0 liter gasoline unit. Whichever engine you go for, it will be paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that brings power to both axles.

Of course, safety features are standard with the new SUV. This includes forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and high beam assist. With Safe Exit Assist, the car will automatically lock the doors to avoid an accident when anyone attempts to open the door and there are vehicles approaching. A warning will be issued as well. The Santa Fe will also have a Rear Occupant Alert that reminds the driver that there are still passengers in the back before getting out of the vehicle.

The Santa Fe is scheduled to make an appearance at the 2018 New York Auto Show this March.

Press Release

Hyundai Motor reveals first images of the Santa Fe

Hyundai Motor unveils its first images of the New Generation Santa Fe which will celebrate its world premiere in February 2018.

The company’s largest passenger car, it represents Hyundai’s strong SUV heritage and continues its global success story. The fourth generation Santa Fe is a powerful, premium-designed SUV with class-leading roominess.

The Santa Fe displays a modern and elegant appearance complemented by eye-catching twin headlights and the Cascading Grille, Hyundai’s SUV-family identity. The exterior design is characterised by a powerful wide stance and an athletic, bold look. It features refined lines that reinforce the car’s status at the top of Hyundai’s SUV line-up. The Santa Fe interior design combines premium quality with a horizontal and roomy layout and enhanced visibility.

Its exterior dimensions make the New Generation Santa Fe appear even more prominent. With a length of 4,770 mm, a width of 1,890 mm and a longer wheelbase, it also provides more comfort for its passengers.

Hyundai truly cares about the customer’s well-being and offers best-in-class safety features. As part of its SmartSense technology, the Santa Fe offers a comprehensive package of Hyundai’s latest active safety features, making advanced technology affordable. Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist is a Hyundai first. When reversing out of areas with low visibility, the system not only warns the driver if vehicles approach from the side – it also applies the brakes automatically. The Safety Exit Assist prevents accidents when vehicles approach from behind by temporarily locking the doors, so that passengers will exit the car safely.

Further details of New Generation Santa Fe will be disclosed at the world premiere before making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018.
