Within two years after a complete redesign, changes to the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe offer a freshened exterior styling, interior layout, quality, new fuel-efficient hybrid powertrain with all-wheel drive, and extensive new driver safety and convenience features. An upscale Calligraphy trim level joins the 2021 Santa Fe lineup as the top-tier model. Not only this, there are two new gasoline engines - a standard naturally-aspirated version and a turbocharged version that not only offer more power but better gas mileage as well. The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe has finally been released & is now available at your nearest Hyundai Dealerships. 

Hyundai calls the 2021 Santa Fe a refresh but it's more like a next-generation Santa Fe. Differentiating the 2021 and 2020 models is quite easy, as the new grille suggests but the mid-size SUV ride on a new platform altogether. Growing in dimensions as well, the 2021 Santa Fe's interiors offer comfortable seating space for 5 and come loaded with features. The high-quality interior and host of driver-assistance technology as standard is satisfying and makes it a good deal. Backed by Hyundai's terrific warranty, the 2021 updates of Santa Fe makes it even more competitive and value for money.

"The Santa Fe receives a visual freshening for 2021 that includes bolder front-end styling and improvements to its interior." - Car And Driver

Hyundai seems to be doing no wrong, after the revamped Palisade, the refreshed 2021 Santa Fe features several meaningful updates over the previous generation. One of the most significant changes in the switch to the new SmartStream turbocharged 2.5-liter engine from the old 2.0T motor. The compact SUV will have around 277 horsepower and is paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 2021 Santa Fe will also be available as a hybrid, and later a plug-in hybrid model will join the lineup. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but all-wheel drive will be optional.

The SE, SEL, and SEL Convenience trims get wireless Android Auto and Apple Carplay functionality and a wireless charging pad are now standard. Hyundai has amped up its voice-based assistant which now allows the occupants to use voice command to change things like the temperature, the radio station, or even open the rear hatch. With all these updates, the Hyundai Santa Fe is all set to compete with the Honda CR-V, Jeep Compass, and the Toyota RAV4. Are the updates enough for it to stand up in an ever populated market? Let’s find out.

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Buying Advice

Among the four trims of the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe, the SEL variant is very worthy and comes with plenty of features which makes it a complete package amongst all the trims for the price. For a price difference of approximately $2000, SEL adds significant comfort and driver-assistance features. It is also the lowest trim to be available with the turbocharged engine. The 2021 Santa Fe SEL will be available in a standard 2.5L inline 4-cylinder engine with 8 automatic transmissions and FWD. Additionally, the Santa Fe will offer a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch infotainment system display, and can be configured with two option packages that are not available with base SE.

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Engine and Performance


"The Santa Fe is all-new under the hood. The slightly larger 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine produces 191 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque, a mild increase of 6 hp and 4 lb-ft compared to last year's 2.4-liter mill." - edmunds.com

The 2021 Santa Fe's standard engine is now a 2.5-liter four-cylinder putting out 191 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, with FWD standard and AWD optional. An available turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder which replaces the previous 2.0T produces 277 hp and 311 lb-ft of torque and this engine uses an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Standard on Limited and Calligraphy trim, Santa Fe's 2.5T is available with FWD while AWD is optional.

Turbo powered Performance and Efficiency!

 With the new powerplants, the 2021 Santa Fe feels quick and powerful. The 191 hp Santa Fe improves the 0-60 mph time of the 2020 model but by a small margin. The Santa Fe sprints from a standstill to 60 mph in 8.6 seconds while with the 2.5T, the crossover does the same run in 7 seconds. Though the standard powertrain is not that quick the turbocharged option delivers much better acceleration and never feels underpowered.

Amongst the competitors, the Toyota RAV-4 and Hyundai Santa Fe share a similar standard engine -2.5L but RAV4 manages to beat it in terms of horsepower by a small margin. The Honda CR-V is one of the closest competitors and its 1.5T is time-tested. Jeep touts Compass as an off-road prowess but the lack of power in comparison to the rivals leaves it behind.

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Fuel Economy


The 2021 Santa Fe's standard 2.5L engine offers more power but Hyundai claims an improvement over 2020 Santa Fe's MPG figures. The EPA fuel economy ratings of the three new powertrains are not yet released but the Santa Fe will deliver up to 24 MPG in the city, 29 MPG on the Highway. For the 2.5T, Hyundai is targeting a combined fuel economy rating of 25 mpg with FWD, and 24 mpg with AWD.

The 2021 Sante Fe hybrid's fuel economy should rate at about 37 mpg in mixed driving conditions. Like before, the updated Santa Fe has the largest fuel capacity of 18.8 gallons in its segment which can easily cover a range of 526 miles on a full tank. The Santa Fe trims with all-wheel drive are less efficient than their front-drive counterparts.

Indicative of a premium SUV interior, Hyundai gives Santa Fe an attractive and modern cabin.

The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe's interior does not shy away from tech or luxury!

Starting from SE and moving to Calligraphy, Hyundai offers ample options inside including Soft-touch material, ambient lighting, digital gauge cluster, new materials, colors, and the addition of available Nappa leather.

The daily driving attribute of Santa Fe will be more than pleasing and comfortable, that's not it, as generous space and comfortable seats in both rows are a boon for long trips as well.

  • Rotary knob for choosing Drive modes and Terrain Modes
  • New quilted Nappa Leather upholstery

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Exterior


With a new exterior based on Hyundai's Sensuous Sportiness" design language, the 2021 Santa Fe boasts a high-head turning quotient.

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Competition


2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Vs 2021 Jeep Compass

The 2021 Santa Fe offers the best technology, safety features, and more power than the Jeep Compass. The price range of the Santa Fe is less and has a more powerful engine with 8-speed automatic transmission. Moreover, the amount of luxury inside the Santa Fe puts the Jeep's interior asking for an upgrade. Where the Compass's ride feels jittery, the Santa Fe ignores the rough pavements for a more supple and comfortable ride.

2021 Jeep Compass

In addition to it, Santa Fe has more rear-seat room and cargo space whereas Jeep provides a 1.3L turbocharged inline- 4 that produces 150 hp which is less in this segment and it is $100 expensive than the Santa Fe base price. For those looking for off-road prowess in the mid-size segment, Jeep Compass qualifies to be one of the best. As an overall SUV, the 2021 Santa Fe is a more rounded package than the 2021 Jeep Compass.

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Vs 2021 Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V gives a tough competition to Santa Fe as it is less expensive and has a more powerful engine with a better fuel efficiency of 30MPG (combined). Although CR-V has the maximum amount of cargo space which makes it a better option than the Santa Fe, Hyundai has the exclusive tech and features. The safety is top-notch for Santa Fe, while it only lacks the driving dynamics of Honda.

2021 Honda CR-V

The 2021 CRV is a relatively better driving SUV but the new Santa Fe offers a more premium and all-rounded approach for a family SUV. Also, Hyundai's warranty package and complimentary maintenance are way better than any of its rivals in the mid-size SUV segment.

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Final Verdict

The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe is a dream car, with classy looks inside-out. The midsize SUV offers extreme comfort and enough cabin space while enhancing the interiors of the car is the modern technology-filled upto the brim. Hyundai has always maintained its reputation and offers plenty of safety features in this SUV and 2021MY is no different.

Comfortable and driveable

Pros - Comfortable, lots of space

Cons - Transmission is confused

Sluggish acceleration I have owned my 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited now for a little over 6 months and I love it!! The only bad thing I have to say is, I don't like the lag from a stop to get going especially if you need to get going quickly. I also had a display problem, about 4 months ago, where the touchscreen didn't come on when I was leaving work, and the next day it came on and has worked perfectly since I originally came to the dealership looking to buy a less expensive car, then I saw this car at a great price and decided to take it for a test drive. I fell in love with it instantly and they gave me a really great time getting me out the door in this car.
