Hyundai To Reveal The All-New Santa Fe Next Month

Hyundai has announced that it’s bringing an all-new Santa Fe to the Geneva Motor Show this March. But we won’t have to wait quite that long to see what it’s about.

The Korean automaker will reveal the new crossover in February. And with this teaser image, it’s giving us a glimpse of what’s to come.

The Santa Fe first launched in 2001 to catapult Hyundai onto the sport-ute market. The second-generation model arrived in 2007, followed by the current third-gen model in 2013. Now nearly six years since its debut at the 2012 New York Auto Show – and with the smaller Tucson and Kona having since arrived on the scene – the time looks about right for the Santa Fe to get some love.

The automaker isn’t telling us much about the new model at this early stage, except to say that it’ll encompass all the latest safety features it can muster – including a rear cross-traffic collision warning system with automated braking and a rear occupant monitor to let the driver know if there’s anyone on board – touted as an industry first.

As dark and shady as it is, we can already glean from this image that the new crossover will share design cues with other recently launched Hyundais like the aforementioned Kona, the latest Sonata, and the new Veloster just revealed. Judging by the distance between the wheels and the shape of the rearmost side windows, we’d posit that we’re looking at the successor to the current three-row, long-wheelbase model, and not the five-seat/short-wheelbase Santa Fe Sport. But Hyundai could yet change up its strategy with the new model.

            I get sick of the Word Trump like the President. He is a racist, sexist person! I mean, no one would call themselves Adolf anymore, would they?

          • donald seymour

            There were a lot of people named Adolf during Adolf’s time period , and the same can be said for Trump. So, take a chill pill, this is automotive.

          Ummm…no. I read the definition of 9gager and still not quite sure what it is. But from the looks of it I would have to say no, I’m not a 9gager.

  • Jay

    Looks good. Except for the possibility that the headlights are set up like the outgoing Jeep Cherokee.

    • donald seymour

      And I love that possibility.

  • Ameer Hassan Tajaldeen

  • Rocket

    Good looking greenhouse. I applaud Hyundai’s resistance to the “floating roof” trend. Hopefully they won’t butcher the front end too much.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    They might as well release the full image with the amount they’ve given us already.

  • Harry_Wild

    Hopefully, the Sport is also reveal at the same time too! I looking for a two row cuv!
