The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is one of the most eagerly anticipated cars and it is expected that this model will get launched by the end of this year. With this product launch, the automaker should indeed complete its entire SUV lineup, thereby having much more to offer you and other consumers’ better transport options.
This model will be a replacement of sorts for the Santa Fe sport so you should not expect a major overhaul with the current iteration. It is expected that Hyundai would continue with the same wheelbase until the next generation starts making the rounds in 2020.
The New Santa Fe model certainly comes with sharp features and from the leaked images online, it is apparent that as far as looks go, the new model is certainly creating the right buzz.
2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Review
The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe certainly looks all grown up which is indeed a marked improvement over the last generation; the rear glass is much more vertical which is indeed a godsend as this can provide you with more room in the ‘not often used’ the third row in the SUV.
The car itself comes with shorter overhangs, a longer wheelbase as well as more length and girth than its earlier variants, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is indeed a much-needed improvement and it certainly makes all the right noises or rather, lack of any given its exceptional suspension.
Exteriors, what to expect?
The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe comes with a few changes on the exterior starting with the wheelbase and grille; for one the wheelbase is slightly larger as the model comes with a larger girth than its earlier model. The grille has been reworked and Hyundai has tagged it as “cascading”, but irrespective of whether the grille deserves the new moniker or not, the fact is that this polygonal design comes with a selection of bright colors.
The design pattern is indeed pleasing to the eye with the long trims, large wheels and much more.
When it comes to the 201 Hyundai Santa Fe, the design pattern of the grille seems to be repeated on the interiors as well with similar design patterns on seat covers, and dashboard. One of the criticisms with most cars is the fact that most of the tech instruments are often left ‘as it is’ without much by way of covers but Hyundai’s new generation certainly seems to show the way.
The overall effect is more pleasing to the eye; but the font that Hyundai uses remains the same, for now at least. The dashboard comes with a simple and straightforward look, which is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The interiors also come with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment display unit which makes it all the more convenient to handle and operate, when on the move.
It is also expected that the base models will come with a 3.5 inch LED screen which is situated by the speedometer. You can choose the driving mode and depend on the mode, the display changes its color to blue for normal, red for sport and green for eco.
The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is expected to come with two inline four engines along with 185 Horsepower and 2.4 liters along with a new eight-speed automatic transaxle. It comes with an all-wheel drive which should make it the preferred car to use for any weather. It is expected that the next model will also feature a diesel engine along with a turbocharger which is why the anticipation for the next model has already started building up.
Price and Release Date
The 2019 model is expected to get released by the end of this year and it is expected that the pricing would be around $40000 for the premium model.
