The Santa Fe receives a visual freshening for 2021 that includes bolder front-end styling and improvements to its interior. Three new powertrains are offered: A 2.5-liter four-cylinder replaces the standard 2.4-liter unit, a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder replaces the optional turbocharged 2.0-liter, and a hybrid variant powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor joins the lineup.

Pros
Relative bargain compared to rivals,
relaxed demeanor,
nicely-equipped cabin.

Cons
Nonhybrid models could be more fuel efficient,
tight rear seat headroom,
no third-row option.

By:

Pros
All-wheel drive is standard,
actually capable when the blacktop ends,
finally an EV option for Subie fans.

Cons
Not a lot of cargo space,
charging capability isn't particularly quick,
rivals offer more driving range.
