Hyundai drops first rendering of upcoming 2019 Santa Fe

Following last week’s teaser image, Hyundai has today unveiled its first rendering of the upcoming all-new Santa Fe, showcasing a luxurious and striking design that is a great departure from the outgoing model.

Hyundai says its new SUV design identity is one that is based on a robust, stylish and voluminous composition. The exterior rendering highlights the new imposing front fascia of the new three-row crossover. It introduces a large cascading grille complimented by a separate headlight system featuring divided daytime running lights (DRLs) and main lamps.

The side rendering showcases the SUV’s bold creases and sharp lines that run the length of the vehicle. The simple yet sleek roof line further forms a harmonious look and feel.

The rear section features a wide stance with redesigned taillights, dual mufflers, and a voluminous bumper design.

Entering its fourth-generation, the three-row Santa Fe crossover will be available with Hyundai’s latest active safety features under the company’s Smart Sense technology umbrella.

The industry-first Rear Occupant Alert monitors the rear seats to detect passengers and alerts the driver when leaving the car. The Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning is now enhanced by an automated braking function. To avoid the risk of collision when reversing out of narrow areas with limited visibility, the system warns the driver and applies the brakes automatically.
