Hyundai is looking to give the Santa Fe an upgrade and while we knew that the Santa Fe was going to get an exterior upgrade, we did not know how the new model will look like until now.
The Hyundai Santa Fe was caught getting tested out in the open and while the vehicle was heavily covered in camo and tarps, some people pointed out that some of the styling cues match what we have seen on the Kona.
Based on what we can see in the front, the headlights and the grille seem to match what Hyundai is offering on the Kona. Through the windshield, some eagle eye fans also managed to spot the Recaro racing seats in the front.
They also made a few changes to the back but the upgrade is not as major as the upgrades in the front. The upgraded Santa Fe should be coming in next year as a 2019 model.
