First Looks

At first glance, this mid-size SUV now sports more aggressive and bolder front end styling with a distinctive new grille design–that can feature a few different patterns depending on trim level–and slimmer headlights. You’ll also notice a new lighting signature that includes T-shaped LED daytime running lights, a new skid plate and reflector, and a thin LED lighting strip that connects the taillights.

Refreshed Interior

Inside the cabin you’ll be met with an elegant monochromatic colour scheme, nicer, soft-touch materials, and a redesigned centre console that frees up space for storage cubbies thanks to a gearshift that has adopted a push-button layout. There’s also a variety of contemporary options to choose from that include a 12.3” digital instrument cluster available in all but the base trim, head-up display, heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, and more.

You’ll never have to worry about legroom or storage with generous passenger space in both rows, and ample cargo space behind the back seat. With the rear seat folded flat, even more storage space becomes available to you.

Innovative Tech

The 2021 Santa Fe offers a whole host of innovative technologies. Base models have a new 8.0” centre screen with standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but a 10.25” touchscreen display with Navigation is also available. You can opt for wireless charging and a 630-watt, 12-speaker premium audio system. On upper trims, the analog gauge cluster has been replaced with a 12.3” fully digital unit, and you’ll find more ambient lighting themes.

Digital Key

If you’re looking for convenience, you can opt for Hyundai Digital Key, which lets you remotely control your vehicle from a distance using Bluetooth technology. You can use the app to remotely start and stop your engine, lock and unlock your doors, turn panic mode on or off, and open your trunk.

Smart Sense

The Hyundai Smart Sense system provides a variety of standard safety drive assist features, including:

  • Forward collision avoidance assist that can now detect cyclists as well as pedestrians
  • Blind-spot collision avoidance and rear cross-traffic collision avoidance
  • Lane-keeping and lane-following assist
  • Driver attention warning, and alerts to ensure people exit safely
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Instrument cluster camera views to better see objects in the blind spot (when a turn signal is active)

Powertrain, Towing, and Hybrid

The 2021 Santa Fe has opted in favour of a trio of available powertrains that now includes a hybrid option. The standard engine is a 2.5L four-cylinder that makes 191 horsepower. It can tow a total of 2000 lbs, which means you can tow your everyday gear with comfort and ease.

You can also choose the more powerful 2.5L turbocharged four-cylinder that generates 277 horsepower. It boasts a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 lbs when properly equipped, which is ideal for all your adventure needs.

Finally, a hybrid option pairs an electric motor with a 175 horsepower, 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder engine for a total output of 225 horsepower.
