Hyundai is an automaker that’s primarily know for its sedans and hatchback ,but it’s also making a big impact in the SUV market with the ix35 in Europe and its close cousin, the Tucson in America. However popular these models might be, customers are still demanding a bigger SUV, and that’s were the latest spyshots we have received fall into place.
The images puzzled even us at first, but the fact that this prototype has a bigger back end proves it’s the next generation of Santa Fe, or ix45 if you live in Europe. The images show that the vehicle has grown ever so slightly in size and has learned the latest design language that we saw on the i30 that debuted in Frankfurt.

The fluid design language replaces the boxy shapes of the old generations with flowing grille and headlights.

In the engine range, expect to se the latest GDI tech being fitted to the old models engine range, when the new Santa Fe and ix45 go on sale in the second half of next year.
