Next-generation Hyundai Santa Fe, code-named the ix45, is showing a bolder, more aggressive styling.

Here are the latest spy shots of the upcoming 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe undergoing some hot-weather testing in the Southwest (United States).

Code-named the ix45, the next-generation of the Santa Fe is looking a little more bold in its styling with a larger grill and that new sharp line at side of the car that echoes the shoulder lines of many current European cars and SUVs.

We expect the next-generation Santa Fe to debut sometime in 2013.
