The new 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe is a premium SUV with a spacious interior and a sophisticated appearance. According to sources, the new Santa Fe will be released next year with a number of upgrades. This SUV is one of the roomiest in its class, with enough room for all of the occupants.
Maybe the most exciting prospect is that it will be the first model to include a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) engine. According to Hyundai, the Santa Fe SUV will be powered by a turbocharged gasoline engine and a pair of electric motors. It should also come with AWD as a standard feature. Aside from this, the company offers a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and turbocharged variant as well.
Hyundai Santa Fe Specs
For the future 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe, three engine options are offered. This model has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 190 horsepower. An optional turbocharged 2.5-liter engine with 277 horsepower is also available. Both engines come with an 8-speed automatic transmission and FWD system as standard, with an AWD setup available as an option.
Finally, Hyundai offers a 226-horsepower combination of a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors. Unlike the two engines described above, the PHEV model should come with a standard AWD system.
The interior of the 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe is fairly modern. The Santa Fe SUV is one of the most unusual in its class, with a wide range of modern alternatives. The new version, like the previous one, has two rows of seats for maximum passenger comfort. Santa Fe also has a lot of storage space behind the seats.
It comes with a standard 8-inch touchscreen as standard. Moreover, a 10.3-inch display is optional once again. Hyundai also provides a digital instrument cluster, new phone integrations, and the latest driver-assistance aids. This SUV is much more reminiscent of the larger and more luxurious Palisade SUV due to minor interior design changes.
Hyundai’s upcoming Santa Fe SUV will borrow aesthetic cues from the larger Hyundai Palisade. For starters, it seems more aggressive than before, and we like the gaping grille flanked by a T-shaped light signature. The complete redesign will not happen, as the 2021MY received a significant makeover.
Anyway, there is a relatively new XRT trim option that adds to the SUV’s toughness. This version has side moldings, more appealing wheels, an abundance of black external decoration, a roof rack, and side stairs, among other things. The most opulent Calligraphy trim has a unique 20-inch alloy wheel design and a much higher-quality grille finish.
2023 Hyundai Santa Fe Release Date, Price
The next 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe will hit the dealerships later in 2022. This popular SUV will cost $28,000. On the other hand, the range-topping Santa Fe Calligraphy will surely cost over $40,000. We are waiting to hear more details, especially regarding the Santa Fe PHEV model.
