Spied: New Hyundai 8-Seater Full-Size SUV Coming In 2019 With Hybrid Options

There’s a new Hyundai SUV coming and it’ll be bigger than the recently revealed Santa Fe.

Hyundai’s upcoming SUV flagship will sit over the Santa Fe in the range and offer seating for up to eight passengers.

Despite wearing heavy covers, the test car shows that it will adopt the same styling up front with the company’s latest SUVs, meaning a large grille and the headlights mounted under a pair of slim LED DRLs.

The rear end is going to adopt a set of vertical taillights in order to better distinguish itself from the Santa Fe and it’s more upright in order to offer more space for the occupants sitting in the third row.

The new Hyundai full-size SUV will most likely share the same underpinnings with the production version of the Kia Telluride. Both SUVs are expected to debut with new electrified powertrains, with Hyundai also planning to launch hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of the Santa Fe.

Hyundai is planning to launch 15 electrified models by 2020, including hybrids, plug-in hybrids, battery-electric and fuel-cell vehicles.

The Korean company is expected to introduce the new flagship SUV in 2019, with a US market launch towards the middle of the year. It’s not clear yet if Hyundai will offer it in Europe.

    a version of the genesis brand of this suv would be a likely rival of the lincoln navigator, cadillac escalade, lexus lx 570, infiniti qx80, mercedes-benz gls and other suvs premium large

      Indeed but I think Genesis said they’re testing only a midsize luxury SUV at the moment.

      If Genesis were to do a crossover large than the upcoming GV80, it would be RWD – competing against the likes of the GLS and new X7 rather than the BoF SUVs like the Escalade and Navigator.
