Hyundai is expected to reveal the 2013 Santa Fe crossover at the upcoming New York Auto Show this April, but until then, take a look at these leaked photos spotted on Hyundai-Blog of what is claimed to be the refreshed Santa Fe.
The sculpted headlights are reminiscent of the new Genesis Coupe, while others like the large chrome hexagonal grille and foglights may be evidence of the Santa Fe exploring a variation of Hyundai’s design language.
While specifics on the Santa Fe’s mechanicals aren’t known yet, there is rumor of the crossover getting the 293 horsepower 3.3-liter V-6 from the Azera, or perhaps the 2.0-liter turbo inline–four in the new Veloster Turbo.
Either way, look for the official reveal in April in The Big Apple from April 6-15, 2012.
