Hyundai’s most popular SUV the Santa Fe has undergone a tremendous facelift and it carries goodies. The SUV looks more than a mere facelift as it looks and feels like an entirely new car. Hyundai promises better tech, improved handling and an overall package. Let’s see what the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe has to offer…
We start from the outside as Hyundai really wants to make the SUV stand out in the crowd. There’s a new grille at the front and the headlamps are given a T shape day-time running light to make it look daring. On the back, the taillamps have been tweaked. A new light bar stretches the entire width of the tailgate and a reflector is fitted across the rear bumpers. There’s a new 20-inch alloy wheel fitted.
Moving on to the interior, the whole package is more spacious and luxurious than before. Soft-touch materials were used throughout the interior. Drivers will benefit from a centre console that’s been placed higher for greater comfort. There’s a new 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system while directly in front of the driver is a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster. For the first time ever in the Santa Fe, there’s a Terrain Mode selector located in the centre console allowing drivers to select from Sand, Snow and Mud, Eco, Comfort, Sport, and Smart modes.
The engines were not given but we expect it to remain the same. The engines will include a 2.4-litre inline-4 with 185 hp and 179 lb-ft. An optional 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder with 235 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque will still be available together with a new Plug-In-Hybrid which may follow suit.
