Before entering the pipelines, the Hyundai Santa Fe 2019 has been on the road test. Via recent car sneak peeks, it can be seen clearly that the mid-size crossover has been reprofiled not only to look sportier but also to make it more exciting to drive.
Outside, despite the protective camouflage, we can recognize the revised headlights which appear to be directly inspired by those of the Hyundai KONA beside other tweaks on the body.

Moving inside, in comparison with the current model, the new crossover’s cabin is completely refreshed with new design as well as a wide range of enhancements.
According to latest car news, the new Santa Fe will come equipped with a 3.3-liter Lambda II GDI naturally aspirated V6 engine capable of 290 hp in the US. Meanwhile, the Santa Fe Sport will be powered by a 2.0-liter Theta II T-GDI and a 2.4-liter Theta II GDI powerplants. To a greater extent, the Korean brand will possibly consider a hybrid version but this is just hearsay.
The release date of the Hyundai Santa Fe 2019 has yet to be confirmed. Latest updates on upcoming Hyundai cars can be found in our Complete guide to the Hyundai Philippines' local lineup.
