Hyundai on Thursday released full details and photos on its redesigned Santa Fe ahead of the sales launch. The Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), whose formal debut will take place on March 6 at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show, will arrive as a 2019 model.
The Santa Fe represents the fourth generation of the Santa Fe nameplate and this time around Hyundai is calling the 2-row version a Santa Fe instead of a Santa Fe Sport. The 3-row version, previously the Santa Fe, is now called the Santa Fe XL.
Also, the company is developing an even bigger SUV to slot in above the Santa Fe XL. This will be a full-size model with three rows and eight seats.
The standard powertrain is a 185-horsepower 2.4-liter inline-4. Those seeking more performance can opt for a 232-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 and for fuel economy-minded buyers there’s a 200-hp 2.2-liter turbocharged inline-4 diesel. An 8-speed automatic and all-wheel drive are standard across the range.
