There was little room left for surprises at the premiere of Hyundai's new 2013 Santa Fe SUV today, with a run of telling 'teaser' images revealing that the carmaker can't be trusted with a secret.

Unveiled at this week's New York Auto Show, the new Santa Fe debuts a new styling language for Hyundai, with its outgoing 'Fluidic Sculpture' evolving into the new 'Storm Edge'.

Up front, the new Santa Fe gets a squared-off face and a new take on Hyundai's familiar hexagonal grille design, sharing its inspiration with the recent Hexa Space concept.

The profile of the new Santa Fe is dominated by a fast-rising belt line, while the rear gets slender new LED tail-lights.

The international debut of the new Santa Fe brings both short- and long-wheelbase versions, continuing the five- and seven-seat choices of its predecessor.

The seven-seat model is longer than that the outgoing car, but rides on the same 2700mm wheelbase - 100mm longer than the regular model. Overall, the seven-seater is 215mm longer, 10mm taller and 5mm wider than the five-seat model.

In the US market, the Santa Fe will be offered with two four-cylinder petrol engines in short-wheelbase form, and a 3.3 litre V6 in the long-wheelbase.

The four-cylinder engines will include a 141kW 2.4 litre and a turbocharged 197kW 2.0 litre. The V6, already featured in the overseas Azera (Grandeur) sedan, delivers 216kW.

Diesel options will include a 110kW 2.0 litre engine, along with the 145kW 2.2 litre R-Series diesel. A 165kW version of the R-Series is also expected, although details have not been confirmed.

Internationally, six-speed manual and automatic transmissions will be offered.

All variants will be equipped with an on-demand all-wheel-drive system, sending 100 percent of power to the front wheels, splitting 50 percent off to the rear wheels when slip is detected.

Watch for details of the new Santa Fe's Australian debut.
