Hyundai has announced pricing details of the facelifted 2021 Santa Fe, which has received a redesign both inside and out, as well as a range of new engines, including a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
The new 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe will begin arriving at dealerships across the U.S. this month, with prices starting from $28,025, including a $1,175 delivery charge.
The entry-level variant of the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe is powered by a new 2.5-liter Smartstream four-cylinder engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Power is rated at 191 HP and 182 lb-ft (247 Nm) of torque, with all-wheel-drive being a $1,700 option.
Customers can also pick the more powerful turbocharged 2.5-liter Smartstream engine, which produces 277 HP and 311 lb-ft (422 Nm) of torque and is paired to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission for faster gear changes and better efficiency. All-wheel-drive is standard in all but the base Limited grade, which is priced from $39,775.
Hyundai has also added the new upscale Calligraphy trim level in the range, priced from $43,275 and offered in conjunction with the AWD 2.5-liter turbo powertrain, featuring quilted Nappa leather seats, eco-suede headliner, an expanded ambient lighting system, and more.
Hyundai will produce the new Santa Fe with the internal combustion engines at its factory in Alabama, while the new hybrid version, powered by a self-charging electrified 1.6-liter turbo with 225 HP and all-wheel-drive, will be produced in Korea and arrive in the first quarter of 2021. A plug-in hybrid Santa Fe will join the range later in 2021, with pricing details to be announced closer to launch.
The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe features a new front fascia with a wider front grille, new bumper, and new headlights that feature a distinctive T-shaped DRLs. The rear end follows suit with a new bumper, updated taillights, and a hidden exhaust.
The interior has also received a big upgrade, featuring now a new floating center console with a new shift-button shifter and an up to 10.25-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment system, which comes with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The instrument cluster is also digital, with a 12.3-inch display.
