Earlier this week, a teaser photo of the Hyundai Santa Fe 2019 was released ahead it debuts in Geneva. Through the darkened teaser, we could only see a prominent curving line that runs from the headlights to the taillights. However, Hyundai has just dropped another teaser in form of design sketches of the Santa Fe 2019.
2019 HYUNDAI SANTA FE SPIED TESTING AT THE NÜRBURGRING
At first sight, it can be said that the next generation Santa Fe has received a revolutionary design. The front looks largely similar to that of the Hyundai Kona, particularly the two-tier headlight style. The grille, meanwhile, adopts a new mesh design giving it a more graven look and flanked by LED daytime running lights and headlights. Another hint seen from the sketches is that there seems to be a skid plate located under the bumper.

One more feature we can easily spot from the sketches is the presence of the flared fenders on the side profile and the same slim LED tail lamps wrapping to the side of the SUV found in previously-leaked teasers. Unfortunately, there are no sketches revealing the interior design of the 2019 Santa Fe.
It is also expected that a turbocharged gasoline engine or a turbocharged diesel engine should be equipped for the new model. At the moment, an advanced Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) system as well as the new Rear Occupant Alert System are confirmed to be offered.
