There’s no word on when the fourth-gen Santa Fe will make its launching or go on sale, however we’re anticipating an early 2018 launching and sales start later on in the year as a 2019 model. That provides Hyundai a lot of time to drop a few of the present camouflage and iron things out a bit, however let’s not lose anymore time– it’s time to dive into this very first test mule to see simply exactly what we can construct through all that thick camouflage and cushioning. 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe

Even more in advance, the headlights will be moved even more down while the LED daytime running lights will live up suggestion where the headlights generally live. On the Kona teaser image, these DRL systems were one smooth piece in each corner, however if we peep through the opening in the front camouflage, we can see that there are 2 unique lenses here with a curved divider right in the middle. The lower-sitting headlights seem sporting projector systems, however might likewise be LED on upper trim levels. Down listed below there will likely be a little phony vent in each corner, while a wide-mouth air dam will live in the center with a thick divider separating it in 2. Lastly, we have that grill, which will likely look rather much like the upcoming Kona’s grille, however appears like it will include more rounded edges as translucented the camouflage in these spy shots.
Moving over to the side profile, we can mention numerous crucial modifications. To begin with, the rear door glass is in fact a bit taller thanks to a lower belt line that does not curve up as quickly as it does on the present model. This will likewise produce bigger rear quarter glass also. On the front door, the glass now pertains to a down point at the bottom, and there’s not a little piece of fixed glass where the profile mirrors utilized to install.
The mirrors have actually been decreased a bit and positioned simply listed below the beltline. A brand-new body line remains in location that runs parallel with the beltline and is rather sharp in contrast to that of the present model. Down listed below, it appears like Hyundai has actually improved both lower body lines, however they will stay much like that of the existing model. The wheel wells planning to get a more specifying line around them also, which might make the Santa Fe quite uncomfortable looking from specific angles. It appears like the side skirts might really be softened compared with the existing model.
Around back, there’s great deals of cushioning, however I would not anticipate things to alter much here. The taillights will likely be a bit sleeker than previously. They will still pertain to a point on the rear hatch however will include an LED design and a more modern-day appearance. It appears like the reflectors in the lower corners might get thinner and a bit longer. It looks like if this mule is sporting the very same exhaust outlets as the existing model, so do not anticipate much to alter because department.
Hyundai will likely eliminate that excessively ostentatious dash and maybe tone things down a bit in advance. In all sincerity, the existing style has a little excessive early-2000s design to it, and the geometric shapes are a bit much. So, the dash will likely get a flatter style with mild overhangs and couple of layers stacked on top of each other. Some phony wood garnishing will likely remain in location, while the basic five-inch display screen will most likely depend on a minimum of 6 inches. Either that or the seven-inch screen offered in the existing three-row 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe and the Santa Fe sport might end up being the basic offering while the 8.0-inch touchscreen with navigation will end up being the only choice.
As normal, phone connection will consist of Android Auto, however for the next gen, Apple CarPlay might likewise be offered. The Infinity stereo will rollover as an alternative, nevertheless, it might feature more than 12 speakers on the brand-new model. Beyond this, anticipate to see a couple of additional USB ports included there, brand-new door trim panels, a brand-new instrument cluster, improved audio and HVAC controls, a brand-new seat design, brand-new products, and perhaps even an upgraded WiFi hotspot.
Engine and Specs
Here in the United States, the Santa Fe is just readily available with a 3.3-liter V-6 that provides 290 horse power at 6,400 rpm and 252 pound-feet at 5,200 rpm. It runs an 11.5:1 compression ratio with dual-overhead webcams, direct injection, and bolts solely to a six-speed automated transmission. Front-wheel drive is basic throughout all trims while AWD can be had for some additional cheddar. On the other hand, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is stuck to a 2.0-liter with 240 ponies or a 2.4-liter with 185 ponies. Both of these engines really dropped power with the most current facelift, which truly triggered the brand name to get some criticism thinking about the “sport: classification utilized to separate it from its bigger, three-row brethren. 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe
Needless to state, 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe has to do some operate in this department when it pertains to the next-gen model. I would not be shocked if it dropped the 3.3-liter V-6 completely for a smaller sized four-banger with a set of turbos. It might quickly provide the exact same power or perhaps a couple of ponies more while providing more torque also. The present four-cylinders in the Sport might rollover, however anticipate them to be tuned to provide much better efficiency and fuel economy also.
The huge news here might be a brand-new seven-speed automated, which would unquestionably aid with fuel economy on the long run, however might compromise efficiency as far as velocity goes due to a much earlier shift from very first to 2nd. However, the brand name would not be going too far off the booking to use a seven-speed double clutch rather. However, we’ll need to wait and see on that one. Hyundai has actually come a long method for many years, however I would not be shocked if they rollovered the very same engines with the exact same output, simply to conserve a couple of dollars on advancement expenses.
Price 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe
The present Santa Fe starts at $30,800 with front-wheel drive or $32,550 with four-wheel drive. You can go up to the restricted for $34,950 or $36,700, the SE Ultimate for $38,700 or $40,450, and the Limited Ultimate for $39,400 or $41,150. However, with a brand-new generation likewise comes brand-new prices and an inescapable prices boost also. So, I would guesstimate that the entry-level model will most likely reach as much as $31,300 with front-wheel drive or $33,050 in four-wheel drive kind. Rates will increase throughout the board rather progressively with the exception of the range-topper, which might leap up by as much as $1,000 to $40,400 and $42,150. 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe
In the end, this is an early model, so it’s rather most likely that we’ll see it a minimum of 2 more times prior to Hyundai chooses to spill the beans. As time goes on, we need to see it drop some camouflage and might even get a better take a look at the within. In the meantime, it appears like the next-gen Santa Fe will likely share a great deal of style hints with the upcoming Hyundai Kona, which might not be a bad thing, however we have not precisely seen that the bare skin either so it’s most likely best to reserve judgement up until we get a much better take a look at exactly what is going on here. With any luck, Hyundai will do something about that interior in the present model and possibly develop something more sporting and much easier on the eyes. Exactly what do you consider the spy shots? Can you choose anything that we might have missed out on? Let us understand in the remarks area listed below.
