Drawing comparisons with the soon to be unveiled Hyundai Kona, the next generation car has such features as thin lights, a pair of larger headlights that go down to the car’s nose. It is also expected to be a front wheel drive car that shares some similarities with the 2018 Elantra GT. So far, there has been no particular date earmarked as its release date, however, it is expected to make it’s grand entrance in the early months of the year 2018 with its official unveiling and commencing of sales expected to be in the same year as a 2019 model.
2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Changes, Exterior
The 2019 Santa Fe is expected to have similar albeit improved similarities with its 2017 model counterpart, it is also muted to have some resemblance with the Kona, its hood is expected to be a bit taller than the present day model, it also comes with sharp drop offs on its sides. In addition to these, the vehicle headlights are expected to be shifted downwards but the running lights will be exactly where the headlights are located. Looking at the preview of the Kona, one can observe that these DRL units were one piece in every angle; however, a look via the opening in the front Camo shows that there are two unique lenses with a divider in their center. the headlights appear to be projector units, although they could also be LED lights.
Further down below, there could be a minute pseudo-vent in each angle; this is coupled with a wide mouth air dam that will be in the middle with a thick divider partitioning them both. It also has the Kona like Grille although it is expected to have more rounded sides.
The side of the car is sure to sport some unique innovations. First and foremost, the back door glass is quite taller due to the lower belt line that appears not to curve in an upward direction as seen in the earlier model. at the front of the car, the glass goes down to a point at the bottom.
The 2019 Santa Fe sport mirrors have been reduced a little and put just below the beltline. A unique and innovative body line is installed that runs side by side with the belt line and is sharper when compared to the current car model. As you move further down, it seems like the car has restructured both lower body lines, although the similarities with the current model will be retained. The wheel wells seem to have a more pronounced line surrounding them as well. This singular feature could end up making the car look a little weird on the sides. It appears that the side skirts may actually be toned downwards when compared and contrasted with the existing model of the same car brand.
A look at the back of the car shows some padding, although not many changes are expected in this regard. It is expected that the vehicle backlights will be sleeker than before. It is expected to sport LED layouts and modernized look. The reflectors in the corner are expected to a bit thinner and also longer. The car exhaust appears to be the same as the current car model
New Hyundai Santa Fe 2019 Interior
The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe interior transcends the early 2000’s designs seen in the current model; features such as its geometric shape are quite much. Hence the dashboard of the car should get a much flatter design with a few layers put on top of each other as well as gentle overhangs. Wood finishing’s are also projected to be included also there would be an increase from five inches to six inches as regards the display, it has been touted that the display may even be the seven inches display or the eight inches display.
The phone connectivity also comes with applications such as Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, the sound output features a 12 speakers, it is also projected to come with a few extra USB ports, also you will get to see feature such as improved door trim panels, unique instrument cluster, new and improved radio, improved seat layout, innovative materials and also probably an improved Wi-Fi hotspot.
There is every possibility that the 3.3 liters, V 6 could be abandoned with this one in exchange for a smaller four banger composing of two turbos, it should be able to deliver considerable power as well as some torque. The present four cylinders of the sports car could be adopted albeit modified for optimum output as regards performance and fuel friendliness.

However, the greatest revelation as regards the engine could just be the all new seven-speed automatic, this innovation would certainly help with fuel efficiency, in the long run, this could see it sacrifice performance as regards acceleration because of a much earlier shift from the first to the second. New 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe may also not be too much of them if they offer a seven-speed dual clutch instead. Although, there may be a surprise in this regards as it might not shock so many people if Hyundai decides to stick to the same engines offering the same performance.
