Hyundai Details Larger Santa Fe With Luxury-Level Interior Amenities

The skinny on the new Santa Fe

  • Boxy new Santa Fe grows larger than before

  • Santa Fe gets features like dual wireless charging

Hyundai showed off the design of the bold new 2025 Santa Fe a few weeks ago, and now that the company has let that news sit for a while it’s time for more. Details about the new powertrains, features, and expanded size of the 2025 Hyundai Santa Fe, which is set to go on sale here next year.

The new Santa Fe is larger than the model it replaces for more cabin space. The wheelbase is 50 mm longer and the overall length grows 60 mm, which Hyundai says grows legroom in the second and third rows. Headroom is up too, with the third row growing 69mm to 958 mm, a figure Hyundai says is best in class.

Santa Fe’s larger size means more cargo space, too, with 745L behind the third row of seats. Hyundai calls the cargo bay “terrace-like” and it is accessed by a tailgate that runs wall to wall to offer better access to the space in the back.

Inside the cabin, Hyundai will offer new convenience features that include dual wireless phone charging pads and a UV-C sterilization tray for your devices. The Santa Fe will have its two main screens combined into one large curved bezel, as well.

Santa Fe will offer a relaxation seat with leg rest in the front row and power reclining second-row seats. The center console can be accessed by both front and second-row passengers, which Hyundai calls a world first. A digital key function will be offered, and the Santa Fe will have a radar-based rear occupant sensor system.

There will be two powertrain options, a 2.5L turbo-four making 277 hp and a 1.6L turbo-four with a hybrid system that makes 177 hp. Europe will offer a PHEV, but Hyundai did not reveal plans to bring that one here.

The new Hyundai Santa Fe will go on sale in Korea this month. The model is expected to launch here in the first half of 2024, with the official North American premiere coming at the LA auto show this fall.
