Sometimes all it takes to change everyone’s perspective on a vehicle is a facelift. That’s not to say a bit of fresh styling is enough to truly make a vehicle deserve all that new attention, though. It’s the features, reliability and performance that matter so much more. The Hyundai Santa Fe of recent years has been a dependable and capable car for a long time, but a timely facelift makes the 2021 model that much more worth a stop.
With a heavily revised front end, a new trim and some updated mechanical specifications, the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe looks and drives like an all-new model. The crossover still fits in the mid-size range, albeit a tad on the compact side.

The last redesign of the Santa Fe wasn’t that long ago, but Hyundai is so dedicated to keeping the model on the cutting edge that it still received the 2021 facelift. This included a reorganization of the model’s many interior features, allowing drivers of any trim to receive the kind of treats usually reserved for premium trims when built by other automakers. The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe looks ready to take on most of the next decade on its own. Although technology is sure to improve every few years, it’s hard to imagine that the Santa Fe will need any updates in the future.
