Furthermore, we must mention that Hyundai killed the range-topping Ultimate trim level last year.
Santa Fe will once again be techy, and it will deliver a long list of standard features. A high-quality cabin guarantees exceptional comfort. Under the bonnet, the base model comes with a 2.4-liter engine remains and it still makes 185 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque.

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Offers Fresh and Unique Design
The all-new 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe is a mid-size SUV that will get minor refreshments this year. This compact SUV will introduce some upgrades on the front and rear fascia. Headlights and LED daytime running lights are the first changes that are visible. The manufacturer will make it slightly reshaped. The exterior of this SUV still dominates thanks to Hyundai’s new cascading grille. Generally, we like the refreshed look at the front.
On the back, the story continuous. The manufacturer will use taillights that are enlarged and are looking very modern. On top of that, the side profile will be more stylish thanks to the 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. From all angles, Hyundai’s 2020 Santa Fe compact-crossover SUV is a good-looking vehicle.
Seductive Style Inside
The Hyundai company has been known for delivering a high-quality interior. The upcoming 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe will continue in the same manner. So, we can expect more comfort inside and more quality materials. For a start, Santa Fe is strictly a 2-row/5-passenger SUV. As you may already know, the Santa Fe XL that comes with three rows of seats is replaced with the all-new Palisade that offering more room and power as well as more luxury than the predecessor. As we mentioned, comfort is guaranteed thanks to the very supportive seats.
The standard features list is long and this model includes a large 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto capability, Bluetooth, a rearview monitor, dual front and rear 2.1 USB power ports, and a body-colored rear spoiler. Real luxury starts with higher trims. The premium package brings the panoramic sunroof, LED headlights and fog lights, leather seats and an 8-way-power passenger seat.
Two Powertrain Options
The mid-size 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe will be a carryover. That means the new model will continue to offer the same two engine options as the current one. The first powertrains that powers this SUV is a reliable 2.4-liter gasoline engine that delivers 185 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. However, if one needs something stronger, it can go for a 2.0-liter turbo engine. This unit produces 235 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
The current Santa Fe delivers 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with the 2.4-liter gasoline. However, the optional powertrain will lower those figures definitively. The famous South Korean automaker also promises a hybrid and electric version in the near future as well. So, we can expect better fuel efficiency and lower emissions.
