Trims and Powertrains

The redesigned Hyundai Santa Fe is offered in a trio of trim packages for 2024: the well-equipped base SEL, the mid-grade Limited, and the elegant Calligraphy. Their powertrain pairs a 1.6-liter turbo-charged four-cylinder with a 44.2-kW electric motor to create a combined 231 horsepower (as mentioned, that’s a 5-hp increase from the previous generation) and 271 lb.-ft. of torque. The six-speed automatic transmission sends power to the front (FWD) or all four wheels (HTRAC AWD). With front-wheel drive, the 2024 Santa Fe Hybrid achieves an EPA-estimated rating of 36 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, while AWD yields ratings of 35 city/34 highway. A 2024 Santa Fe Hybrid equipped with trailer brakes can tow up to 2,000 pounds.
