2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid for Sale in Springfield, MA
For the first time ever, Hyundai is offering a hybrid powertrain for the Santa Fe, which has enjoyed strong U.S. sales for two decades. With standard features like all-wheel drive, a class-exclusive 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and seemingly endless amounts of active safety equipment, it’s definitely one of the most exciting alternative-fuel models in the running. Like its gasoline-only counterpart, the ’21 Santa Fe Hybrid flaunts a rugged and modern style that’s sure to impress even the most particular driver. And you couldn’t ask for a better warranty, with 10 years/100,000 miles of powertrain protection, including the battery. The ’21 Santa Fe Hybrid even comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile complimentary maintenance plan that covers oil and filter changes, tire rotations, and multipoint inspections.
Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy
The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid is made in Blue, SEL Premium, and Limited trim levels, all of which get standard AWD as mentioned above. Their hybrid system consists of a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor that combine to produce 226 hp. Hyundai’s transmission choice is a strong six-speed automatic that provides smooth shifts for an enjoyable ride. The Blue returns an EPA-estimated 36 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. The SEL Premium and Limited achieve 33 city/30 highway. The Santa Fe Hybrid also has a regenerative braking feature that captures kinetic energy formed during braking and routes it to the 270-volt lithium-ion polymer battery for storage.
The Blue gets automatic LED headlights, LED taillights, heated side mirrors with puddle lights and turn-signal indicators, rear privacy glass, roof rails, a rear spoiler, a hands-free liftgate, Hyundai Digital Key (which allows your smartphone to act as the vehicle’s key fob), push-button start, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, Blue Link connected car services, dual front and rear USB ports, a rearview camera with parking guidance, a wireless smartphone charger, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, power-folding 60/40 split second-row seats, an underfloor storage tray, and a Rear Seat Quiet Mode that silences the speakers in the rear seats if passengers are resting.
The SEL Premium adds a panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, and LED interior cabin lights. The Limited gets it all: projector-type LED headlights, power-folding side mirrors, chrome door handles, rain-sensing wipers, a driver’s seat leg cushion extender, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated rear outboard seats.
Safety and Technology
Hyundai emphasizes passenger safety, putting plenty of active safety features into all levels of its vehicles. The base Blue gets forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, driver attention warning, rear occupant alert, blind-spot collision avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, and reverse parking distance warning. The SEL Premium gains highway driving assist, and the Limited receives forward parking distance warning, smart parking assist, a blind-spot view monitor, and a surround-view camera system.
The base infotainment system found in the Blue trim has an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and HD radio. The SEL Premium and Limited get an infotainment system with a 10.25-inch touchscreen, integrated navigation, and a premium 12-speaker surround sound Harman Kardon audio system. Since wireless smartphone integration is not compatible with the larger touchscreen, these two trims revert to conventional plug-in Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
