Hyundai has made it quite clear that a large, three-row crossover is coming and that likely it would NOT carry the Santa Fe name.

close to that red render we saw a while ago, though slightly more "rigid" in proportions... and that chrome moustache does look slightly awkward. otherwise, I'm with Cos... not bad looking but rather uninspiring mesh of a bunch of other brand's designs...

The face is terrible. The remainder is tolerable but not great. Designwise, this is a backward step compared to its clean and attractive predecessor.

Garsish front end, but otherwise not bad. They cleaned up the heavy handed messiness from the Kona at least (now there's only 4 "intake/grille" holes). I still hate the grille, especially now with that oversized mesh.

This is a handsome design and it will sell like gangbusters.

Gallery of 122 pics here: https://www.carscoops.com/2018/02/20...three-engines/

Also, current Santa Fe will be sold alongside this one for the time being, renamed Santa Fe XL. Hyundai confirmed a larger 8-passenger crossover is coming that will slot above this.

Great job Hyundai!

The absolutely horizontal roofline for the maximum spatial cargo space.

The "Ying of Yang" fender carving for the maximum visual drama with the minimal width of the car used.

The headlight and the tail lamp designs looked strange at first (for the first 5 seconds) but I have to admit that it makes 99% of cars and trucks on earth look stale.

Some of the interior plastic should be upgraded for the US market though.

Other than this, the new Santa Fe seems flawless.

Hyundai is back as a trend setter! Don't forget the previous generation Sonata woke up Toyota and Honda for more dramatic Camry and Accord/Civic designs. The current generation of Sonata started this new wind of sedan designs with the trunk line of a coupe.

I think the thin headlight design is going to become the next big thing. It's looks super cool and futuristic.

Looks same quality as anything from Germany. Hyundai/Kia are actually good at building cars, but what a waste of talent to build such cr*p for the German-brainwashed consumers.

The front end of the current model looked too much like an Escape for my liking (or did the Escape look too much like a Santa Fe?). This is a step in the right direction.
