Hyundai reveals sketches of new Santa Fe

Hyundai has released exterior images of the all-new Santa Fe, which will be unveiled in April at the New York Motor Show.

Unlike the company's recent new models, that use an 'i' prefix followed by a number, the model will retain the Santa Fe name for the third generation car.

No information is available yet on what variants will be offered in the UK, but it is likely that there will be a seven-seat option, while fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of the diesel variants will be more competitive than the current model, with a choice of versions lower than 160g/km and better than 47mpg.

Wecan also expect an upgrade in interior quality along the lines of the latest versions of the i30 and i40 compared with their predecessors.

According to Hyundai, the Santa Fe exterior is based on its design philosophy, Fluidic Sculpture. But the new Santa Fe adopts its own design concept called Storm Edge which captures the strong and dynamic images created by nature during the formation of a storm.

The design adopts the hexagonal grille – a key design cue of the Hyundai family look.
