The SUV will feature a rugged yet refined exterior design, and an interior design update that provides premium facilities and comfort.

More images are expected soon along with extra information that will start to unravel some of the "technological enhancements" contained within the new Santa Fe, which Hyundai is describing as "the ultimate family adventure vehicle". The new T-shaped LED daytime running lights are now integrated within the massive geometric front grill.

Also unclear are details on the new-look Santa Fe's mechanical package, but we expect carry-over powertrains.

The 2021 Santa Fe SUV adopts the design of "recessed lighting", where the headlamps are positioned inside the grille and the lights blend perfectly with the grille when turned off, as quoted by the official statement of Hyundai Global on Tuesday.

South Korean automaker Hyundai Motor Company on Tuesday unveiled its new Santa Fe, the latest generation of the company's longest-running SUV which is expected to be launched in some of the worldwide markets by fall this year.

Thankfully, it appears that the feature will soon be activated for users to enjoy. So it was only a matter of time before Samsung followed suit on the feature .

The T-shaped DRL is created to be seen from a distance and gives guidance on the improvement of undisclosed technology.

Interior revisions should mirror the platform shift, with the updated Santa Fe featuring the same 10.25-inch infotainment screen and 12.3-inch digital instrument binnacle as the new Sonata. Mind you, this isn't the first time that the Kia-Hyundai group has underpinned a current model on a newer platform as they had done the same with the Sorento back in 2012.

Given that the current-gen Santa Fe went on sale only in 2018, the update has come fairly early in the SUV's lifecycle.

The Santa Fe will be the first Hyundai SUV based on the company's "all-new" third-generation platform, which it says "allows for significant improvements in performance, handling and safety", as well as facilitating electrified powertrains. In its third iteration (DM), for example, the Santa Fe hung around for almost seven years. But according to reports, the company is all set to launch the new SUV sometime in June.
