The all-new Hyundai Santa Fe 2019 has already made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show but it hasn’t been shown in the US market yet
Speaking of the car engine, there are 2 options for gasoline-fueled engines: a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with 232 hp and a 2.4L 4-cylinder mill with about 185 hp. Besides, a 2.2 L turbo-diesel unit is also especially armed on the XL version with 200 hp and 434 Nm of torque.
The Santa-Fe comes adorned with a beautiful and modern interior

Speaking of the refreshed Hyundai Tucson 2019, there has actually been not much public information about this SUV. Spy shots of the Tucson 2019 disclose that it may likely get a significant change at the front fascia including fresh headlamps and a bigger grille. Due to the heavy camouflage, the car’s rear is hard to guess how it will look like. And the interior seems to get an improvement, too.
The new electric Kona looks almost like other variants except for its electric engine
Meanwhile, the Hyundai Kona 2018’s electric variant has also launched at the Geneva Motor Show. The new Kona looks almost like other variants except for an electric engine which is capable of cranking out 133 hp and 395 Nm of torque. Besides, it is also offered with a 39.2-kWh battery which can run for a maximum of 300 km. Meanwhile, the higher-level version comes equipped with an engine producing 201 hp and 395 Nm of torque, along with a 64-kWh battery with 470 km of driving range.
