2023 Hyundai Santa Fe: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The Hyundai Santa Fe will likely return for the 2023 model year as a carryover model, with a potential redesign in the model year 2024. Any changes would likely be limited to option shuffling around the trim levels, with nothing major in store. Regardless, we expect it to continue to be one of the best mid-size SUVs you can buy in 2023, just as it is now.

The Santa Fe has a smart-looking but ultimately busy exterior style, with textured panels and a split grille, and two layers of headlights that give way to creases and sculpting as you move towards the back. Inside is a better story, with a handsome dashboard and quality materials. Options can make it even better, with available Nappa leather and other touches that can make it feel like a luxury car.

The Santa Fe is currently offered with four different engine configurations. Most models get a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 191 horsepower, but the top trim levels get a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 281 horsepower. There are also Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid versions of the Santa Fe which both use a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder mated to an electric motor. However, these hybrid powertrains are not the same; the standard Hybrid uses a 1.49 kWh battery pack and a 44.2 kW motor, while the Plug-In Hybrid utilizes a larger 13.8 kWh battery pack and a 66.9 kW motor.

All models of the Hyundai Santa Fe include a wide range of active safety features including adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, steering assist, rear cross-traffic alerts, safe exit warning, and rear-seat alert. Higher-end models get highway driving assistance, a blind spot camera, and parking sensors.

Pricing & Release Date

We haven’t heard anything about a release date, but we’d expect it to be in the Fall. Global supply chain issues may push that back, but we aren’t certain of anything yet.

As this is likely the last model year for this generation, we’d expect Santa Fe prices to remain about the same. Currently, they range from $28,625 (including destination) to $42,185.

The mid-sized crossover space is chock full of competitors, including the Kia Sorrento, Mazda CX-5, Ford Bronco Sport, Chevrolet Blazer, and Volkswagen Tiguan.
