Hyundai has today released the first high-resolution images of its fourth-generation Santa Fe, hours after the pictures were leaked by South Korean media.
We now know that the new Santa Fe is 70mm longer and 10mm wider than the current model, stretching its total dimensions to 4770mm and 1890mm respectively. Hyundai claims that the added size equates to class-leading roominess.
Hyundai also stated that the new vehicle's wheelbase stretches longer than that of the current Santa Fe (2700mm) but is yet to confirm the exact figure.
The cabin's styling appears premium but seems to favour pragmatism over style.
The Santa Fe will be the first Hyundai model to gain rear cross-traffic alert with automated braking, meaning that the vehicle will warn drivers of approaching traffic and apply the brakes autonomously if need be.
The all-new seven-seater has been said to draw much of its looks from other Hyundai's like the recently released Kona small SUV and the hydrogen-powered Nexo.
Specifically, the updated styling is most noticeable at the front, with a large cascading grille between the split-design headlights and a long chrome strip that stretches the width of the bonnet.
The single interior image shows two-tone brown trim with a floating central touchscreen. The cabin's styling appears premium but seems to favour pragmatism over style.
The redesigned large SUV is expected to make its world premiere at the Geneva motor show in March, with a local launch to follow sometime in the middle of 2018.
