Updated Santa Fe brought to the test

AUTO VIDEO


Two years after the premiere of the current Hyundai Santa Fe, the model was again seen in tests. The camouflaged crossover was removed during the winter tests. With such an abundance of camouflage, the manufacturer, in all likelihood, wants to make us believe that this is not a crossover that has been updated in the middle of the life cycle, but a new generation.

The prototype in the photo is almost completely covered by camouflage, but now we can say that the updated Santa Fe will receive new bumpers and other lights. As for the headlights and branded grille, they will remain the same.

According to preliminary information, new motors will appear in the Santa Fe engine range, but which ones are not yet known. At the same time, the crossover will lose the current 188-horsepower 2.4-liter unit. Versions with multiple hybrid installations are also expected. Everything will become clear closer to the official premiere, which will have to wait until next year.
