The good news is we now can see more details to its rear end. Well, we are all getting excited to see what features to bring this season and we got some rumors to share with you for this new Hyundai car model!
The New Hyundai Santa Fe To Appear at the Geneva Motor Show This Spring
Hyundai Santa Fe Appears at Geneva Motor Show – The general design for the new Santa Fe is expected to bring few elements from the newest Kona’s features that debuted in Frankfurt motor show last 2017.
This should come with large split headlights and also the hexagonal ‘cascading’ grille. In this new series of Hyundai, the Santa Fe brings an advanced infotainment screen that is placed right at the top of the center stack.
There are few buttons to help the driver control the climate and other systems. Another notable upgrade is the sharp angles on the model that make the new series looks more upscale.
If you want to know more about the latest news and rumors that related to the exterior design of Santa Fe 2019, you will find in this section below.
2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Exterior
Seeing the new series, it seems Hyundai offers the general specifications that are also used by the competitor, which has the same stacked headlight. This is adapted from B-segment. The new release also showed the sides too with its long body along with the doors and fenders.
The rear brings its unique shaped lights which are integrated with the rear reflector. Meanwhile, the faux rear skid plates and integrated rear spoiler are part of the package.
Let’s hope that that the new Hyundai features the seven-seat that becomes the standard model of the Santa Fe series. There are some differences between the new series and the predecessor. One of the notable looks is the mirrors that are positioned on the door instead of on its A-pillars.
Besides, the new series also adopts a split design which the lights will sit close to the leading edge of the hood. Meanwhile, the remaining projectors are placed vertically below. For the grille, Hyundai adopts grille design from the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT.
2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Interior
It is reasonably attractive if Hyundai takes Mazda interior design as an inspiration with its latest crossover cockpit.
It looks more spacious and pleasantly brings a convenient driving experience. Not surprisingly if the company claims that the new Hyundai is the ‘class-leading roominess.’
Better Cabin Space
This new Santa Fe brings 71 longer measurements with 4,770 mm long. By its bigger size, Hyundai claims a better cabin space which will be an exciting feature for passengers who always bring larger cargo. Even, for people who wish a bigger space, the Santa Fe XL will be released also sooner.
Besides, Hyundai also add active safety features with the coming Rear Occupant Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert which will automatically break in the emergency situation. There is also Exit Assist that will temporarily lock the door when the car detects another vehicle reaching to yours. This Safety Exit Assist can also detect bicycles.
Another interesting view is the front cabin. Even though the Santa Fe’s curved trim extends from dash onto door panels, there is no more integrated screen as Hyundai switched it with the free-standing central screen instead which is placed at the top of the center stack.
New Hyundai Technology Inside 2019 Santa Fe
No, this is not Hyundai if they don’t bring the newest technology in the series. It is claimed that the new Santa Fe has more tech upgrade mainly for the cabin and also safety side. THere is a seven-inch touchscreen display for the base models with Apple CarPlay and also the Android Auto.
Regarding the cabin, the international model has the same look with the Korean version. However, there is still a great upgrade for the new Santa Fe with its Krell audio system.
Besides, the BlueLink 2.0 is also included in this new crossover which allows the owners to adjust the vehicle function, check the maintenance through reminders, check the security system as well as the vehicle status.
Another technology to introduce in the new Santa Fe is the safety system. The diver assist includes Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist System and High Beam Assist and others that will comfort the owner to drive.
2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Engine Specs
The debut hasn’t come yet, but we think it is OK if we talk about the engine. The new Hyundai is hoped to bring 3-row SUV along with a naturally-aspirated V-6.
This is also expected to the 2-row that will continue with the inline-4 options. The remaining engine to underline is the all-wheel drive for the front-wheel drive.
