2024 Hyundai Santa Fe: new illustration…

Last Updated:

This new illustration of the 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe seems definitely closer to the actual prototypes than what we’ve seen before.

As predicted, this will be a radical departure not only from the current generation but from anything Hyundai is currently doing. We’ve seen most of the interior before, and it also plays the part of a more upscale SUV pretty well.

This is trying hard to blur the line between the off-road look like the Bronco/Defender type, and the more family-oriented Crossovers out there. I know I mentioned this before, but it’s really too bad about the super-low tail lights. Something Hyundai/Lia keeps doing. A very poor placement and a very bad idea.

  1. To say this thing is ugly is an understatement. It looks like it was designed by a committee of designers from a Russian automaker.

    Good luck to them with thing.

  2. Doesn’t look like much else out there.
    If the boxy shape doesn’t hurt the aerodynamics, why not?
    About the only goofy thing here is the black molding of the front wheel arch not continuing into the door.
    The hole point of the plastic would be to keep rock chips from hitting the painted metal.
    I guess it does that but the abrupt cutoff looks weird.

    Currently, if it looks like this, it will be a “One of these things doesn’t look like the others”.
    No family resemblance to anything else they sell.

    This thing looks like it’s going further up market. Are they making the gap to large in their lineup?

  3. I see Jeep Grand Cherokee
    Look at the front left profile
    Price point will be interesting
    Maybe a PHEV also

  4. This is what happens when a LR Defender and a Kia Carnival make babies.

    Hopefully the real thing will look a good deal better. Keeping my fingers crossed.

  5. This is so much better and more interesting design than the Grand Cherokee or Wagoneer. While the Santa Fe was never meant to be an off-roader, at least now it looks like it could be whereas the Grand Cherokee and Wagoneer looks like it up to off-roading in the WalMart parking lot.

  6. I agree with Gromit… that’s funny sheets…..

    now on to the thing thats bugging me…. So santafe is just one word now?
