The midsized Santa Fe received an extensive freshening for 2021 with new engines, interior changes, and a cosmetic nip and tuck. A 191-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder is now standard; the previous 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine is replaced by a 2.5-liter turbo that is mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions will arrive later in 2021. The roomy cabin remains, boasting a spacious rear seat. The controls are clear and easy to master, particularly the quick-to-respond infotainment system, but the push-button gear selector is tricky to use without looking. When we originally tested it, we found handling to be very secure, but the ride skewed a bit too firm. We hope it improved after the freshening. Standard active safety features include FCW and AEB with pedestrian detection, and BSW is standard on all but the base trim.
