With just one month ahead the greatest auto event of the year taking place in Geneva, carmakers all over the world have already started campaigning their latest models. Hyundai is one of them and has just released the first teaser image with the upcoming 2019 Santa Fe.
Following previous spy photos with the model undergoing tests near the Ring, in Germany, the South Korean based company has now released the first image with the car`s shape, which indicates that the future Santa Fe will sport an evolutionary design with advanced characteristics.
We are dealing here with the fourth-generation Santa Fe that will arrive at this year`s Geneva Motor Show with new design lines borrowed from the Tucson or the US-bound Kona model. Besides the headlights borrowed from the Kona, it looks like the new Santa Fe will also come with daytime running lights with LED strip across the top, while the main headlight beam will be located lower down.
Moving to the back, the all-new 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe will also adopt a sportier look thanks to the new wheels arches, also seen on the Californian-based Kona model. It gives the new Santa Fe a tougher look, while the new taillights wrapped around the sides with big seamless glass area for the windows, also provide an off-road attitude.
As for technological enhancements, the new 2019 Santa Fe will also be state-of-the-art with a new range of safety gizmos, such as the company`s new Smart Sense systems with autonomous emergency braking, “Rear Occupant Aler” monitor or rear cross-traffic alert.
As for engine lineup under the hood, according to new reports, the upcoming 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is likely to carry over some of the top mills from the Tucson or Sonata. We might be looking here with the new 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol flat-four with 130 kW from the Tucson, or the 2.0-liter turbo diesel from with 180 kW from Sonata. The new model will also keep the existence 2.2-liter turbo-diesel, but perhaps it might receive a power input.
More details will emerge in the following period. Meanwhile, stay tuned!
