About the New Hyundai Santa Fe

Greenway Orlando Hyundai Santa Fe
The Hyundai Santa Fe has always been comfortable straddling the line between two worlds. It’s a little larger than the average compact crossover, but it is at a price point that makes it more affordable than the average midsize crossover. For the 2021 model year, the Santa Fe—now in its fourth production cycle—introduces the Calligraphy, which takes the place of the Limited as the top-of-the-line model. In addition, the vehicle receives several exterior and interior updates to keep it fresh. In addition to the Calligraphy, this vehicle provides SE, SEL, and Limited trim levels.

Typically, this vehicle is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque and is pinned to an eight-speed automatic transmission for an outstanding peak fuel efficiency of 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. However, there’s the choice of the turbocharged version of the engine—which puts out 277 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque and is strapped to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission—for better acceleration. Although front-wheel drive is standard, go for the optional all-wheel drive if you want better performance on slippery surfaces. With the Santa Fe, expect—at least at the base level—two rows of cloth-trimmed seats to accommodate up to five people. Front-seat heating and eight-way power on the driver’s side appear if you upgrade from the SE to the SEL. A luxurious touch awaits you at the Limited trim level, which introduces a leather-wrapped steering wheel with heating ability, leather seat upholstery, front-seat ventilation, driver-seat memory, power release on the rear seats, and front-seat 8-way power adjustability extended to the front passenger seat. Unique to the Calligraphy are quilted Nappa leather seating surfaces, rear-seat heating, perforation on the leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an eco-suede microfiber headliner.

The entertainment system on this vehicle uses an 8-inch touchscreen to integrate six speakers, an AM/FM radio tuner, Bluetooth hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, and four USB ports (one for power and three for data) for all occupants to connect or charge their mobile devices. There’s also a 4.2-inch color display for driver information, and a remote keyless entry system enables you to lock and unlock the doors with your key fob. If you upgrade to the SE, you get the following enhancements and additions:
• Proximity key entry with push-button start (an upgrade from remote keyless entry)
• HD Radio
• Wireless charging pad
• Three years of the Blue Link Connected Care and Remote packages for functions such as:
o Roadside assistance
o Vehicle locator and diagnostics
o Monthly vehicle health reporting
o Remote start
o Remote lock/unlock
The Limited adds the following features:
• 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster (in place of the 4.2-inch)
• Dual-zone automatic climate control system
• Auto-dimming rearview mirror
• Garage-door opener
• 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation
• 12-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system
• Three years of the Blue Link Guidance package
Only the Calligraphy has Hyundai Digital Key, which means you can remotely control the vehicle using Bluetooth technology and a mobile app.

For driver assistance, the Santa Fe starts with the following technologies:
• Adaptive cruise control for automatically setting a safe following distance
• Rearview camera with rear parking sensors for remarkable parking guidance
• Forward collision avoidance assist (with pedestrian, cyclist, and junction-turning detection) to help avoid front-end crashes
• Lane keeping assist to maintain position in the intended lane of travel
• Driver attention warning to suggest taking a break when drowsiness or inattentive driving is detected
• High beam assist to automatically turn on the high beams in low-visibility situations (and turn them off during approaching traffic)
Also notable is rear occupant alert, which alerts you of anyone left in the rear section when you get out of the vehicle. Six airbags are on board for restraint and cushioning during a crash, if necessary. The SE adds a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert, as well as safe exit assist to watch out for passing vehicles when getting out of the cabin. Front parking sensors on the rearview camera, as well as remote start parking assist, are added at the SEL trim level. The Limited gains the following:
• Overhead ultrasonic sensors (for better detection with rear occupant alert)
• Highway driving assist
• Lane following assist
• Blind-spot view monitor
• Surround-view camera (in place of the rearview camera)
Only the Calligraphy has a head-up display to help reduce on-the-road distraction.
