Drivers in Garden Grove, Anaheim, and Puente Hills, CA can learn all about the Santa Fe with our comprehensive 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe review from Norm Reeves Hyundai Superstore Cerritos.
Santa Fe Performance
The Santa Fe comes with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. This works with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but all-wheel drive is also available.
There’s also a turbocharged 2.5-liter 4-cylinder that produces up 277 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. This gets paired with an 8-speed Dual Clutch Transmission. With this configuration, you can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
Two hybrid options are available for the Santa Fe, starting with a 1.6-liter turbo-four with two motors that produces 178 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque mated to a six-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The same engine is available in a plug-in version.
Santa Fe Interior
The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe interior offers space for up to five people in two rows. The seats are heavily padded and comfortable for long-distance trips, and there’s more than enough head- and legroom for adults to stretch out and relax. Several upgrades are available, including leather upholstery and heated and ventilated front seats. With the laminated glass feature, the Santa Fe is whisper quiet on the road.
With all the seats up, the cargo space accommodates 36.4 cubic feet, which expands to 72.1 cubic feet with the seats folded down. The floor can also open up to an under-floor storage compartment for valuable cargo as well. A high load floor and available power tailgate make cargo loading quick, easy, and convenient.
Santa Fe Technology
All Santa Fe models come with a user-friendly infotainment system. An 8-inch touchscreen is standard, but a 10.25-inch dashboard monitor is also available. Both options come with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, which streams media from your phone to the vehicle’s system.
The upper-level trims include more technology, such as wireless smartphone charging, a Harman Kardon® Premium Audio system, navigation, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, so you’ll always be entertained on the road.
For safety, the Santa Fe includes Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, a feature that adjusts your cruising speed to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. Other features include Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, a feature that alerts you to vehicles or pedestrians in your blind spot, and a Surround View Monitor, which gives you a bird’s-eye view of your vehicle. You can also get front and rear parking sensors for more convenient parking. Another desirable feature is the Head-Up Display, which projects important vehicle information on the windshield in your sightline so you can keep your eyes on the road.
