Hyundai continues its climb upmarket, with a new Santa Fe that's big enough to take on the Toyota Highlanders of the world, at least according to a new set of spy shots taken by photog Hans Lehmann. Gone are the character lines that made the current Santa Fe stick out among small utes like John Merrick at a Washington Press Corps dinner. The new model, which will be built Hyundai's new plant in Montgomery, Alabama, gains a dose of understatement, much in the way of the Mercedes M-Class.
