In early February, the next-gen Hyundai Santa Fe 2019 has been officially revealed with is new glossy sheetmetal. And now, Hyundai has disclosed further information (particularly for the the US marketplace) together with more pictures of the car’s rear end.
At first glance, the South Korean-market Santa Fe does not seem to be too different from its global version. In detail, the car also comes adorned with the same stacked head lamp design which was first equipped for the B-segment fighter Kona. The side profile is also brought to light, showing a longer and more defined body featuring character lines on its doors and fenders.

Moving on to the rear, the Hyundai SUV attracts our eyes with a set of uniquely-redesgined tail lamps which is further highlighted by deep creases on the tailgate. Meanwhile, reverse lights are now arranged separately from the tail lamps, merged to the rear reflectors. The rear spoiler and faux rear skid plates are also included in the package.
The all-new Hyundai Santa Fe 2019 boasts a length of 4,770 mm which is 71 mm (equal to almost 3 inches) larger than the current model. With this bump in the car’s body, the Korean car manufacturer announces that the cabin and cargo space will be also accordingly widened. This is such good news for those who have always wished for a roomier Santa Fe. And the bigger Santa Fe XL will hit the market soon, at least in the US.

The new car has also received a 2.0 BlueLink infotainment system which helps car owners inspect the maintenance reminders, security system, vehicle status and adjust car functions through smartphone connection.
