The 4th-gen Hyundai Santa Fe will be out showing many differences from the existing model. To begin with, it puts on a new look from the Nexo and the Kona with the stacked LED headlights. The composite lights will complement these slim lights. With the grille made Y-shaped. All of those give a bolder look to the front fascia.
The reverse lights come separate from the tail lights, but located right below the rear reflectors
The sides of the Hyundai Santa Fe 2019 feature intended lines to make it feel more dynamic while the flared look from the rear quarter panel provides a broader-looking stance. On each window, there’s a signature touch; especially, the third window features an upward kink. Speaking of the rear, the taillights get a unique shape while the tailgate is made deep-creased. Surprisingly, the reverse lights come separate from the tail lights, but located right below the rear reflectors.
Stepping inside, the cabin earns a wraparound design, purposefully made to create a cocoon around the front occupants. The floating infotainment screen is located at the middle of the dashboard under which the car maker sets air-conditioning vents and the climate control buttons. Additionally, the interior is made artistic with patterns and hexagonal shapes. The rear occupants are also offered with air-conditioning vents as well.
