Hyundai Santa Fe spy images present Ioniq-inspired inside


The next-generation Hyundai Santa Fe has been caught once more by a spy photographer. There’s not a lot new to report in regards to the exterior, however this time, the photographer managed to seize the inside, which is as closely revised as the outside. And like the new Kona, it takes a lot of its design from the Ioniq line of EVs.

Instantly evident is a swap to at least one skinny, tall, vast panel encompassing each the instrument and infotainment shows. It sits on a low sprint, and it seems like there is a backing panel that runs the entire width of the sprint, behind the shows. Different controls sit on a shallow, angled middle stack that meets a large middle console that is just about solely open for storage and appears to include two wi-fi charging pads. The controls include bodily knobs and buttons, one thing Hyundai has made a commitment to using. The open middle console is made potential by a swap to a column-mounted shifter, similar to that utilized by the Kona and Ioniqs. And the complete design, which places an emphasis on easy, clear shapes and contours comes from these vehicles, too.

There is not something new to report relating to the outside, however it’s nonetheless a serious change from the present mannequin. The profile is boxy and conventional. What we will see of the headlights means that even these components shall be square-shaped and nearly a throwback to Eighties design. It is a main departure from the curvier current generation with its extra swoopy, offended lighting.

We’re anticipating the Santa Fe to be formally revealed towards the tip of this 12 months or early subsequent 12 months as a 2024 or 2025 mannequin 12 months. Exhaust ideas present that inside combustion engine choices will nonetheless be provided. The present mannequin is accessible with naturally aspirated and turbocharged four-cylinder engines, in addition to hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants. Variations of those will in all probability carryover to the brand new generation. We additionally would not rule out the opportunity of a full-electric mannequin.
