It’s getting more and more good looking and with Hyundai revealing the first renderings of the next, fourth-generation Hyundai Santa Fe, it seems like they have a real winner on their hands.
The fourth-generation’s new design will reflect Hyundai’s new SUV design identity and as you’ve noticed, it looks vastly different from the previous generation which has been around for more than half a decade – rendering it completely outdated. Pun intended.
At the front, it sports a new, much larger “cascading grille” complimented by a separate headlight system that clearly divides the main headlamps from the daytime running lights – which occupy the area where the headlamps would normally be.
At the back, the edge of the roof where the spoiler sits seem to resemble that of the new Mazda CX-5 we reviewed recently although it could turn out differently with these being just renderings.
The back looks sleeker and “more compressed” than before – featuring new Y-design taillights which extends towards the side of the rear quarter section along with dual exhaust tips. The new generation Santa Fe will also be packed with Hyundai’s latest active safety features offered by the Smart Sense technology.
