Hyundai Teases 4th-Generation Santa Fe SUV

Official debut planned for Geneva Motor Show.

by on Jan.25, 2018

Hyundai is offering a sneak peek at its 2019 Santa Fe sport-utility vehicle, which will debut in Geneva.

Hyundai is betting big, going forward, on SUVs and may soon add a pickup to its line-up, as well. But few vehicles are more important for the Korean carmaker than the Santa Fe, currently the biggest ute in its line-up.

What Hyundai is pointedly calling its “New Generation Santa Fe” is set to make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show coming up in March, and an official teaser image, as well as some spy shots and reports out of Korea suggest we’ll see some notable styling updates, as well as a suite of new safety features.

The new line-up of safety technology includes not only a new collision warning system with auto-braking but also what it is calling Rear Occupant Alert Monitor.

First Look: 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

Reveals new “Storm Edge” design theme.

Hyundai will introduce the new 2013 Santa Fe in New York next month.

It was a dark and stormy design…

Well, not quite, but this somewhat shadowed teaser image from Hyundai provides a first look at the maker’s next-generation Santa Fe crossover.  The 2013 remake introduces what the maker has dubbed “Storm Edge,” an update of its well-regarded Fluidic Sculpture design language.

The two renderings come less than a month before Hyundai rolls out the 2013 Santa Fe at the upcoming New York International Auto Show.  The update of the CUV is an important and symbolic move for the Korean carmaker.  The original Santa Fe marked the transformation of the Hyundai brand from one focusing on cheap and boring products into a maker of stylish, fun-to-drive – if still affordable – automobiles.

The most notable change comes with an updated take on the familiar Hyundai six-sided grille.  It now features flatter, but thicker, cross slats.  The front look borrows heavily from the maker’s new Azera, especially when it comes to the wraparound headlamps, which feature LED accents around the main projector bulbs.
