Next Hyundai Santa Fe carries Kona cues

Rearmost week we showed you Hyundai’s newest and smallest crossover, the Kona. This week, we accompany you the newest version of Hyundai’s largest crossover, the Santa Fe, albeit beneath much mask. There’s a bigger connection between these two vehicles than just timing and square footage contrast, though. They appear to share some styling cues.

We can see via the vinyl draperies on the nose and tell that it has an aggressive version of the Hyundai cascading grille, much like the Kona. It also has the slight top headlight element combined with larger, separate elements lower in the fascia, again like the infinitesimal crossover. The camouflage also fits closely enough to the body to reveal that the prime grille will be flanked by large vents that encompass the lower headlamps. We also see some Recaro racing seats because of the windshield, but we doubt those will make production. Prove us wrong, Hyundai!

Telling to the sides and tail, there are fewer details to discern. The size looks like to the current model, and the roofline and window lines also look similar. The back part taillights do look slimmer than those on the present Santa Fe.

As for when we may see this updated Santa Fe, we wouldn’t ahead to a reveal until next spring at the earliest, possibly next fall, as a 2019 facsimile. The reason for this is primarily the fact that the current Santa Fe was just refreshed for 2017, so Hyundai purpose likely give that update a little bit of breathing room.
