Joining the growing ranks of gas-electric hybrids this year is the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid. The hybrid version of the 5-passenger, mid-size SUV is part of a major electrification roll-out at Hyundai that also includes hybrid iterations of the 2022 Tucson, 2021 Elantra, Sonata, and Ioniq Hybrids, as well as the battery electric 2021 Kona and Ioniq. A plug-in version of the Santa Fe Hybrid will also join the lineup later this summer.
Including the $1,185 destination charge, 2021 Santa Fe Hybrid prices are $34,835 for the base Blue model, $38,785 for the well-equipped SEL, and $41,135 for the top-of-the-line Limited. All-wheel drive is standard with Santa Fe Hybrid models.
Pricing and the standard-equipment breakdown for the upcoming plug-in version of the Santa Fe Hybrid have not yet been announced. The plug-in hybrid will be available in just two trims: SEL and Limited.
The Santa Fe’s hybrid competitors include the mid-size Toyota Venza and Kia Sorento, plus the compact Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and Ford Escape. Competitors to the upcoming plug-in version of the Santa Fe Hybrid include the RAV4 Prime, Ford Escape, Mitsubishi Outlander, and Subaru Crosstrek.
