The prototype Hyundai Santa Fe is still heavily disguised, but the production model can debut the next month.

Photo-spy again catches a prototype of the new Hyundai Santa Fe in camouflage. This time he was seen during the winter tests in Scandinavia. The photos were at the disposal of the publication Motor1.

On the test copy, there was even more camouflage than it was on the summer races on public roads. Through the film you can see the design elements of the front of the body in the style of the new compact crossover Kona. Photo-spy saw a five-seats version, which in the US in the current generation is sold with the prefix Sport.

The Grand Santa Fe version can grow to an eight-seater saloon. The manufacturer can also give her a new name. A larger version of Santa Fe of the new generation will allow Hyundai to better deal with similar models of Toyota, Nissan, Volkswagen and Ford in the insanely competitive segment of SUVs. There are rumors that Koreans, like Honda, can replace the V6 atmospheric engine for the Grand Santa Fe with a turbo engine with a smaller displacement.

South Korean automotive manufacturer Hyundai can present its Santa Fe crossover of a new generation in February of this year at home. Rumors of this were spread by The Korean Car Blog in December 2017. And he did not support the disclosure of the source of information.
