Newly Redesigned 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Breaks Cover

The modernized 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe reveals a bolder face and more premium touches.


  • Its grille is now bolder and far larger.

  • Hyundai has infused the new Santa Fe with a more premium feel.

  • Hybrid and PHEV versions expected for various markets.


The current 4th generation Hyundai Santa Fe was introduced for the 2019 model year and, as expected, has done rather well for the Korean car company. Now, only two model-years later, Hyundai has already revealed the midsize SUV’s mid-cycle refresh and it is highlighted by a new larger front grille, unique LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) that form a “T” with the corner lights when lit. The cabin is also spruced up with today’s must-haves.

Although we are expecting that Hyundai will share details about powertrains before long, namely a pair of electrified ones, this news story is limited to the 2021 Santa Fe’s physical changes. The then all-new 2019 Santa Fe’s face was somewhat controversial front-end but now Hyundai has taken its boldness to the next level by stretching the grille from one end to the other and incorporating the headlights within. Other than new colours and available 20-inch wheels, the taillights are also new and are now connected by a slim illuminated bar. These premium touches also carry into the cabin.

The 2021 Santa Fe gains more soft-touch surfaces and the center console has been revised with new gear shift buttons and, for the first time ever, a Terrain Selector mode knob to optimize the HTRAC AWD’s behaviour. The revised console has also enabled Hyundai to integrate a new larger 10.25-inch touchscreen display.
