Hyundai has been revolutionizing its own utility vehicle lineup over the past couple of years, and it’s showing no signs of slowing anytime soon. To give you a prime example, the automaker just overhauled its popular midsize crossover, the Hyundai Santa Fe, in 2019 as it entered its fourth generation. Now, just two model years later, the brand is already giving it a mid-generation facelift. We’re not talking about a little makeover, either.
The updates and enhancements are extensive, including most aspects of the vehicle, ranging from exterior design cues to the powertrain options that underpin the model. We love the Santa Fe and are excited about all of the changes, but are even more excited that we get to offer it to you right here in Cocoa FL.
With major changes coming to different aspects of the vehicle including its exterior and interior, its safety features, the different technology and multimedia offerings found throughout, plus its mechanical underpinnings, the Hyundai Santa Fe is without a doubt all-new for the 2021 model year. On top of all these changes, the brand even introduced a new top-of-the-line trim level that’s on the verge of making the Santa Fe a luxury model. The trim is called Calligraphy, and it adds even more exclusive content and enhancements to the crossover.
As for some of the most exciting fundamental changes, we’d be remiss not to mention the new powertrain options. Not only is there a new Smartstream 2.5L turbocharged engine capable of generating around 277 horsepower available, but shoppers will also be able to opt for a new hybrid propulsion system instead of rocking the traditional gas-powered Santa Fe powertrain.
Other major changes include even more additions to the offerings of advanced driver convenience and safety features, such as adding Cyclist and Junction-Turning detection to the Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist system, which was already capable of detecting pedestrians.
