Default 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe


Nice, the grill is different from Audi and not to wild to fall in the Lexus/Infiniti spindle, the upper part looks inspired in the latest Honda designs. The interior look very Buick-ish.

It's a good looking mash of other brands. I see Lexus, Infinity and Audi with Citroen thrown in for good measure. Interior isn't very inspired either...It does look and feel like a Buick competitor

Not a bad design. Headlight design seems far better resolved than it does on the Kona.

I can't keep track of Hyundai and Kia's SUVs. Is this in the same class as the Edge and Highlander? I think the interior looks like a Buick competitor only b/c of the color; the design otherwise seems very consistent w/ what Hyundai has been putting out recently (and perhaps is a bit cheap looking for the class?).

IIRC Santa Fe Sport is closer to the Edge while the Santa Fe is closer to the Explorer.

The front would have looked better without the chrome mustache but it's not bad.

Interesting re: the Buick interior comparisons. I get a lot of CX-9 and older Infiniti vibes from it.

I think its more the colour palette that does it for me..Overall the car is super 'on trend' and thus doesn't excite me. And if its not that engaging to drive as with past Korean SUVs it will appeal even less to me. Obviously i am not the majority and i see this doing well in sales.

I agree that this will be no holy grail of handling or mechanical excitement and I concur that this will sell. Its look is an in-it-to-win-it look for the US market. It's definitely much more attractive than the Japanese--with the sole exception of Mazda--and GM and FCA have nothing this stylish to offer in the segment and the Ford Edge--though newish--is definitely forgettable looking.

Whilst nothing outstanding or exciting, it's fairly good and premium looking, so I guess it will sell. The segment, as pointed out, isn't exactly full of new alternatives, so that might be a top choice, on both sides of the Atlantic;
