At first, specially looking at the front under camouflage, you can think this is another set of spy pictures of the next-generation Hyundai Santa Fe, but if you take a look to the side picture, this opinion will change.
As we told you before, the design of the new Santa Fe will be revolutionary, specially on the front end although there are some subtle differences between it and its predecessor. For example, the side mirrors are now positioned on the doors instead of at the base of the A-pillars.
The Santa Fe headlights also adopt a split design where the daytime running lights sit at the top near the leading edge of the hood and the main projectors form a vertical stack below. This is the new front-end look and has already appeared on the Kona subcompact.
But, on this prototype we can also find a different C pillar, as you can see on the picture below, and a larger rear end that can confirm this is a different than the normal Santa Fe.
