New Hyundai Santa Fe!

The first thing that I recognized when I saw this spied image of the new Hyundai Santa Fe, was that the grillle with the fat chrome slats, boldly resembles the grille,of the previous Ford Fusion! Though I always thought that that particular grille design on the Ford Fusion contained too much chrome, (more chrome than good design lol) I knew it could do well somewhere else - preferably on an SUV (because Ijust love SUVS).

Well it looks like designers at Hyundai studios loved the look too and decided to incorporate it into their Hyundai Santa Fe design. Now here is what I think I did, infact, here is how I think they did it. I believe they decided to use the grille idea, but to also change it up a little by reshaping it. If you look at the current shape, it resembles the grille shape of the new Ford fusion, but upside down and taller. In essesnce, they flipped the shape.

Furthermore, notice how the headlamps do not stop at the "end" of the front view, but continues onto the side of the vehicle. This leaves a "gap" between the end of the hood and the beginning of the front bumper.
Look at the images below, and then look at the image below them to observe the design analysis. Only at SeraniTafari do we go in on car designs like this!
