Hyundai Santa Fe is one of 12 vehicles to receive Autotrader’s Best New Cars for 2021 designation.
“Hyundai continually listens to its consumers while working hard to improve our vehicles and the refreshed 2021 Santa Fe reflects this commitment,” said Olabisi Boyle, vice president of product planning and mobility strategy for Hyundai Motor North America.
Autotrader editors took note of the improvements that have been made to the Santa Fe. “Hyundai is rather good at SUVs and hybrids, and it was about time the two came together,” noted the editors in a release.
The Santa Fe was refreshed for 2021 with advanced front and rear lighting signatures, new hybrid powertrains with all-wheel drive and extensive new safety and convenience features.
The hybrid propulsion system is the first of its kind in the Hyundai SUV lineup.
The Santa Fe is built at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama in Montgomery, where its 3,000 team members also make the Sonata and Elantra sedans. This year, the plant is adding the Santa Cruz to the lineup and will be adding the Tucson in 2022.
