If you think concept cars never amount to anything, take a look at the all-new Hyundai Santa Fe. Clearly influenced by the Intrado concept we first saw way back at the 2014 , as well as the Next concept that was unveiled just last month in Las Vegas, the next generation Santa Fe could end up rolling out as one of the lookers in the seven-seater SUV segment.

As the company’s biggest car it’s a bit of a flagship going into its fourth-generation now, and as such the Hyundai Santa Fe has grown slightly in width, but surprisingly it’s actually 135mm shorter than its predecessor with a total length of 4,770mm. That puts the car nicely in line to compete against rivals such as the Toyota Fortuner, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chevrolet Trailblazer, Nissan Pathfinder, and others.

Although Hyundai isn’t yet giving away much information about the 2019 Santa Fe, you can expect a downsizing across the line-up and a focus towards a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine for performance balanced with efficiency and fuel economy.

As is expected the Koreans are focusing on value for money here, and promise to make the Santa Fe the most loaded car in its class. Hyundai says the SUV will come available with a huge range of safety technology, including a new system called Safety Exit Assist, which prevents rear passengers from opening the doors if the car senses other cars (or bikes) coming from behind.

Hyundai says the company will officially premiere the 2019 Santa Fe at the Geneva motor show coming up next month, before the model goes on sale worldwide before the end of the year.

Prices for the car should range from below AED90,000 to around AED130,000 depending on trim and specifications, with both two-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models available.
