What's New

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe is still fresh from last year’s redesign but still sees significant updates in the form of a new outdoorsy-themed XRT trim, a new Plug-In Hybrid powertrain, and expanded application of safety and convenience features.

Choosing Your Hyundai Santa Fe

The Santa Fe SUV is available in five trims; SE, SEL, XRT, Limited, and Calligraphy, that range in price from $28,625 to $42,185.

The Hybrid (HEV) crossover is offered in Blue, SEL Premium, and Limited trims and prices range from $34,935 to $41,345. The Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) is offered in two trims; SEL Convenience ($40,535) and Limited ($46,545).

Engine Choices

A naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is found in the SE, SEL, and XRT trims. It produces 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The more powerful 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is featured in the Limited and Calligraphy trims and achieves 281 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque and is bolted to an eight-speed dual-clutch automated transmission. Front-wheel drive (FWD) is standard while all-wheel drive (AWD) is available with both engines (and on all trims) for $1,700.

The Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid models are equipped with a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a motor that is sandwiched between the engine and transmission. Power is routed through a six-speed automated single-clutch transmission to a standard all-wheel-drive system. The Hybrid model saves weight and expense with a less powerful electrified system than the PHEV and utilizes a 1.49 kWh battery pack and a 44.2 kW motor which creates a combined 226 horsepower and delivers 195 pound-feet of instantaneous torque.

The PHEV incorporates a larger 13.8 kWh battery pack and a 66.9 kW motor to achieve 261 combined horsepower and 224 pound-feet of off-the-line torque.

The base gasoline engine earns an EPA-estimated 26 miles per gallon combined or 24 mpg when equipped with AWD. The larger turbocharged engine’s enhanced transmission helps it achieve similar figures of 25 mpg (FWD) and 24 mpg when equipped with AWD.

While the Hybrid’s Blue trim achieves 34 mpg combined, most of its trims are rated at 32 mpg combined. The PHEV scores a 76 MPGE rating and can deliver an estimated 30 miles on electric power only.

The 2.5-liter turbocharged powertrains are capable of towing 3,500 pounds while the other configurations are rated for 2,000 pounds.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Santa Fe is a five-passenger crossover that stretches to 188.4 inches in length and sits 74.8-inches wide which is about eight inches shorter and three inches narrower than the three-row Hyundai Palisade.

The Santa Fe’s 108.9 -inch wheelbase affords 41.7 inches of rear legroom in the gas model - although that is reduced to 40.8 inches in the Hybrid and 39.5-inches in the PHEV - and 36.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and 72.1 cubic feet with the second-row seatbacks folded.

Safety Features

All models are equipped with blind-spot detection with steering assist, rear cross-traffic assist, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, safe exit warning, and rear occupant detection (with an ultrasonic sensor in the XRT and up trims).

The Limited trim gains highway driving assist, a blind-spot camera display in the gauge cluster, and front and rear parking sensors.

The Santa Fe earns a five-star overall safety rating from NHTSA and is an IIHS 2021 Top Safety Pick+.


The base SE trim is equipped with an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and HD Radio compatibility with dual front and rear USB ports.

The Blue and SEL trims add Hyundai’s Blue Link connected services, as well as SiriusXM, and the Limited trims gain a 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon premium sound system.

Multiple powertrains. Hyundai offers the 2022 Santa Fe in a dizzying number of configurations. The Santa Fe is available with gas-powered engines, a hybrid powertrain, and a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The wide variety helps the Santa Fe appeal to consumers looking for an efficient vehicle or one with impressive performance.

The standard engine in the Santa Fe is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that makes 191 horsepower, while an optional turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder is rated at 281 hp. Both come paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The base engine delivers enough power for daily use, but isn’t exciting and sounds coarse when attempting to pass on the highway. The available turbocharged engine is a far better fit for the Santa Fe, delivering more energetic performance. The turbo engine is let down by its dual-clutch eight-speed transmission that feels clunky.

For shoppers looking for a midsize SUV that is efficient, Hyundai offers the Santa Fe Hybrid. That model comes with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder, two electric motors, and a 1.49-kWh battery pack. The powertrain is rated at 226 hp and comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard. The hybrid powertrain isn’t the quickest one available, but its 34 mpg combined rating is impressive.

A new plug-in hybrid powertrain joins the lineup for the 2022 model year. The PHEV model features a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric motor, and a 13.8-kWh lithium-ion battery pack for a combined output of 260 hp. All-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission are standard. The PHEV carries fuel economy ratings of up to 76 MPGe and 33 mpg combined. With added power, the PHEV delivers a similar punch to the optional turbocharged engine, while bringing great fuel economy and the ability to travel up to 30 miles on electricity.

Spacious for five. Unlike a lot of other midsize SUVs in the class, the Santa Fe has seating for up to five people. The lack of a third row affects the SUV’s versatility, but brings a spacious amount of interior space in both rows. In the back, the Santa Fe offers up to 40.8 inches of rear legroom and 39 inches of rear headroom. That’s plenty of space for two adults or three children.

Cargo capacity is generous, as well. With the rear seats in place, the Santa Fe offers up to 36.4 cubic feet of cargo space and a total of 72.1 cubic feet of space with the rear seats folded. That’s a competitive amount against other two-row midsize SUVs. If you need more space for cargo, the regular Santa Fe is rated to tow up to 3,500 pounds with the available turbocharged engine. The Santa Fe Hybrid can tow up to 2,000 pounds.

Hyundai Santa Fe

Attractive, well-built cabin. The Santa Fe’s exterior design is edgy and bold, but the interior is far more subdued. We think that’s a good thing, as you’ll be spending more time staring at the cabin than the outside. The tiered dashboard is a stylish element and flows directly into the door panels. The center console may seem overwhelming at first, but buttons are logically placed and buttons for the shift knob frees up space for extra storage in the center console.

All Santa Fe trims come with nice materials, but the SUV’s lineup ranges from good to full-on luxurious. The range-topping Calligraphy trim is downright luxurious with quilted Nappa leather upholstery, a microfiber headliner, and accent lighting. The Santa Fe takes some cues from the Palisade and Genesis’ luxury vehicles to feel nearly as nice as some far more expensive SUVs.

With comprehensive sound deadening and dual-pane front windows, the Santa Fe has a hushed cabin, regardless of how fast you’re going on the highway or how much wind there is. With cozy seats and high-quality materials, the Santa Fe’s cabin is a great SUV for a long road trip.

Loads of tech. Not only does Hyundai offer the Santa Fe lineup with some impressive tech features, but all of them are easy to use and intuitive. An eight-inch touchscreen is standard on the SUV, bringing wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, and four USB ports. The hybrid and plug-in hybrid models add even more standard features, like a wireless smartphone charger, satellite radio, an HD Radio, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

A 10.25-inch touchscreen is available, though it comes with wired smartphone compatibility. We think the trade-off is worthwhile, as the larger screen brings more real estate and crisp graphics. Other available features include a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, navigation, and a wireless smartphone charger.

Hyundai packs the Santa Fe with an impressive list of standard features. Nearly every modern driver-assist feature is standard, with Hyundai’s Highway Driving Assist, parking sensors, remote parking assist, a head-up display, a blind spot camera, and a surround-view parking camera being optional.

In crash-testing, the 2022 Santa Fe earned stellar scores. The NHTSA gave the SUV a five-star overall safety rating, while the IIHS awarded the 2022 Santa Fe with a Top Safety Pick+ award.

Final thoughts. While the number of three-row midsize SUVs continues to grow, we’re happy to see the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe continue to be a two-row vehicle. It prioritizes interior space over its two rows instead of worrying about cramming in a tight third row. With the introduction of the Santa Fe Plug-in Hybrid, the SUV is an even more well-rounded SUV than before. It hits all of the right notes for consumers with the only downside being its exterior design.

The all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee moves further upstream than before, offering a generous amount of technology, a high-end cabin, serious off-roading capability, and a handsome design. The Honda Passport isn’t as upscale or as tech-forward as the Santa Fe, but it has light off-roading capability, a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine, and up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity.
