If you are looking for a new vehicle for your growing family, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe could be the SUV for you. Hyundai India has been on a roll for the past few months. Despite the sluggish auto market, the company received a great response for its Grand i10 hatchback. Hyundai India attaches great importance to taking the needs of the customers very seriously. The company also wants to express its technical prowess at a higher level. The new Santa Fe is one such strong example. Not only does it come with a great infotainment system and a sophisticated interior, but it also boasts state-of-the-art safety technology along with superior performance and efficiency. Not that the older generation Santa Fe was no less impressive, but then again with the new model, Hyundai showed off its ultimate engineering prowess. The new flagship SUV confidently stands above the competition. It wears the new “Storm Edge” design and gets revised interiors as well.
Santa Fe Powertrain Alternatives
That new Santa Fe comes in four powertrain options, a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine (191 hp), a turbocharged 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine (277 hp), a hybrid (226 hp), and a plug-in hybrid (260 hp). While the gas-powered Santa Fe has a mileage of up to 25 combined mpg, the Santa Fe Hybrid delivers 32 combined mpg. The Santa Fe Plug-in Hybrid has a fuel efficiency of 76 mpg in electric mode only and a combined 33 mpg in hybrid mode. The 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe is available in five trims: XRT, SEL, SE, Limited and Calligraphy.
Hyundai Santa Fe exterior
Santa Fe has always been one of Hyundai’s strongholds. The 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe XRT trim offers new exterior styling features that are quite different from the regular model of the SUV. For example, there are dark silver front and rear skid plates, front and rear black lower bumper fascia moulding, and black mirror covers. The headlights have also been revamped. It has Xenon headlamps with LED position lights. The LED lights flash on the top edge of the headlight. Hyundai has also added black roof sides and cross rails. The matte black front grille adds to the masculinity of the new trim while XRT-exclusive side steps and 18-inch wheels take things to the next level.
Hyundai Santa Fe Interior
The interior is different from the previous generation model and this time around Santa Fe gets all the modern goodies that can be seen in other portfolio cars as well. The flowing lines on the dashboard, the way the instrumental cluster is designed and the wonderful interior trims are top-notch. The dual-tone interior gives a fresh feel. The beige seat combined with the chocolate brown soft plastic is an impressive touch. It has high-quality leather seats and even the stitching feels sturdy. You’ll find an eight-inch touchscreen that enables you to wirelessly connect apps from your smartphone to the vehicle. Since it is dimensionally bigger, the cabin feels bigger than before. Legroom is great for 1st and 2nd row while it is good for 3rd row. You’ll also find Hyundai Smart Sense, which includes a range of driver assistance features.
Hyundai Santa Fe Price
The price of the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe has been kept at Rs 27.00 lakh.
