Hyundai’s seven-seat SUV will enter a new generation as it continues to offer hybrid power.

The next-generation Hyundai Santa Fe will receive a significant design overhaul next year, as Hyundai’s largest SUV looks set to continue to offer seven seats and a selection of hybrid powertrains.

Likely to be fully revealed next year before a 2024 launch, a heavily updated prototype of the Santa Fe was photographed testing on public roads in Germany.

The prototype was almost entirely covered with black fabric, with a black-and-white obscuring livery visible beneath. It appears to feature a much more squared-off silhouette than the previous Santa Fe.

The key design changes have been made to the Santa Fe’s roof and A-pillar, with new lights at the front and rear. The door handles, most of the front grille and the entire rear of the car were hidden from view.

While the current Santa Fe uses Hyundai-Kia’s N3 Y6 platform, the new model will adopt the firm’s N3 structure, which it will share with the new Kia Sorento.

Hyundai UK confirmed to our partners that the model under wraps was indeed the new Santa Fe but did not comment on a potential reveal date, powertrains or performance figures.

However, the visible exhaust suggests Hyundai is not ready to convert the Santa Fe to all-electric power just yet. It is likely to be offered with a choice of electrified powertrains once again.
