2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Reliability - Consumer Reports
Hyundai put the Santa Fe through an extensive freshening for 2021, giving it new, more powerful engines, upscale interior styling, and a hybrid version. As before, it slots in between compact and midsized SUVs in terms of its footprint. But the reworked controls have become less user-friendly, and the base engine feels feeble and gets noisy when pushed hard.
