    About the Santa Fe

     The current (fourth-generation) Hyundai Santa Fe model range has been around now for more than four years. However, the 2023 Santa Fe comes with a range of changes and the option for a hybrid, which is vastly more more efficient than the existing petrol V6 but quieter and smoother than the more popular diesel.

    In fact, Hyundai has introduced two new petrol-electric hybrid variants to the Santa Fe SUV range.

    Photos and Images of the Hyundai Santa Fe Interior

    On the top-spec variant, the driver’s seat is great, with plenty of bolstering, powered lumbar adjustment, plus both heating and cooling. There are also multiple memory presets if you share the car with another.

    The leather-wrapped steering wheel is tastefully perforated on the hand grips and has easy to understand buttons on each spoke for audio, phone and driver-assist functions, and trip computer scrolling.

    The digital cluster has a speedo on the left and power/charge meter on the right in lieu of a tachometer, and can be configured to show various functions – but not full-screen maps like you might find in, say, a Volkswagen product.

    It’s supported by a head-up display on the windscreen so you can have a digital speed readout projected at eye level, for example.

    Buttons and dials are no longer fashionable according to most car brands, but Hyundai has stuck with hard physical shortcut controls here. It may look cluttered, but it’s far easier to interface with on the move than it is to wade through menus.

    You’ll find buttons, dials or rocker switches for functions such as your audio and ventilation controls, seat temperature adjustments, drive mode selection, and even the shift-by-wire transmission selector – in lieu of a traditional shifter.

    There’s good storage, including a rubberised open section above the regular glovebox, a two-level console, bottle holders in the doors, and an open semi-hidden section below the central bank of buttons.

    The third row of seats (two occupants) remains a token effort really, suitable for kids or very tolerant adults, though they stow away flat into the floor when not in use so no harm. While rearmost occupants get ventilation and a USB, the side curtain airbags are explicitly listed as only covering the heads of rows one and two.

    Santa Fe Colours

    What colours are available for the Hyundai Santa Fe?

    • Rain Forest

    Cost of Ownership

    What is the running, servicing and ownership costs of buying a Hyundai Santa Fe?

    How it Drives

    The petrol-electric hybrid powertrain is only available on Elite and Highlander trim levels and consists a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 132kW/265Nm, an electric motor producing 44.2kW/264Nm, and a 1.49kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack.
