Featuring a wheel base of 2590 mm, a width of 1780 mm and a height of 1630 mm, this model is quite large. From the sides, it looks similar to the profile of the Santa Fe, up to the roof line. A vertically designed bumper unit marks the difference including redesigned fog lamps, against the rounded shapes from the Santa Fe. Flared wheel arches with the squat stance making it forward leaning at the front, and the roof line sharply tapers into the tail lamps. Giving it a vertically stacked design, each part of the exterior looks like separate section. First noticeable part goes from the spoiler to the base of the glass, second is at the ridge line from the centre of the hatch door, above the number plate slot. Loading lip and black bumper define the front, and warp around tail lamps including a silver colored bash plate complete the rear section’s appearance.
