The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Features New Updates for Minneapolis Drivers to Get Excited About

The Hyundai Santa Fe has undergone a lot of changes since it was first created in 2000. Previously known as the Sant Fe Sport, this five-passenger SUV shortened its name in 2019, when it launched its outstanding, fourth generation. Now, the Santa Fe is introducing St. Paul, MN drivers to even more changes for 2021, and Buerkle Hyundai has your peek inside this exciting, updated model.

What's New for 2021?

As a continuation of the ongoing fourth Santa Fe generation, this new 2021 version doesn't introduce any serious overhauls or redesigns. But it does give us an updated menu of powertrain options, including the first-ever Santa Fe hybrid model, and it adds a new top-of-the-line trim level and a refreshed overall design scheme.

  • New power and new hybrid. Previously available with only a 185-horsepower four-cylinder engine, or an optional, turbocharged four-cylinder with 235 horsepower, this year's model builds on the menu. Not only does it add the first hybrid option, a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine with 225 combined horsepower, it also delivers a boost of power and upgraded output to both already-existing engine options.
  • New trim level. While the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe had three trim levels for drivers to choose from, this incredible model gets a new range-topping Santa Fe Calligraphy option, with premium quality amenities and luxury that Roseville, MN drivers will appreciate.
  • Refreshed appearance. While not a major redesign, the 2021 Santa Fe does feature a significantly refreshed design, both inside and out.


Longtime fans and Santa Fe newcomers alike will appreciate the new looks of this versatile SUV. Designed to stand out from the crowd of similarly sized crossovers, the Santa Fe has four doors, seating for five people in two rows, and a spacious rear cargo hold for all your important gear.

As part of its 2021 refresh, the exterior of the Santa Fe gets a reshaped front grille with a redesigned headlight and taillight scheme. Meanwhile, on the inside of the vehicle, there's new materials throughout, as well as a floating design center console, larger standard and optional touchscreen interfaces, and a push-button shifter, among other updates.

Trim Levels

The addition of the new Calligraphy trim line brings the total number of options for personalizing the Santa Fe to four. Whether you're in White Bear Lake and you need a crossover for commutes to the office, or you're in Brooklyn Park and need an SUV for family road trips, there's a Santa Fe model in this collection that will meet, and even exceed, your every expectation. The complete lineup includes:

  • Hyundai Santa Fe SE. The entry-level, jumping-off point for this model, the SE trim level is well-equipped and starts Inver Grove Heights drivers off with a range of sought-after amenities, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, touchscreen technology, a noise-reducing windshield, reclining rear seats, and much more.
  • Hyundai Santa Fe SEL. Moving up to this second trim option, drivers can look forward to more features for comfort, tech, and safety. We enjoy its heated front seats, leather upholstery, power-adjustable driver's seat, and its menu of optional packages that aren't available on the base model.
  • Hyundai Santa Fe Limited. Formerly the range-topping trim for this model, this upper-level SUV covers all your comfort and safety needs. It has a standard navigation system, standard ventilated front seats, standard power-operated liftgate, and much more.
  • Hyundai Santa Fe Calligraphy. A premium SUV for drivers who appreciate the finer things, this top model adds a head-up display to its roster of standard tech features, and it also completes the package with a variety of comfort and luxury updates, such as Nappa quilted leather upholstery, unique interior trim details on the doors and seats, a suede headliner, and much more.


Depending on your trim level choice and the power you're looking for, this new SUV now has three engines to choose from. As mentioned, it gets new power across the board and an all-new hybrid option this year, giving our customers a range of incredible ways to customize their ride. The list includes:

  • The base engine, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 191 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque. This is a jump from last year's model, with an increase of 6 horsepower and 4 pound-feet of torque.
  • An optional, turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which has 277 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque, a jump up from the 235 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque that came with the previous model year's optional system.
  • The new, cutting-edge and innovative hybrid, which uses the turbocharged 1.6-liter optional engine and combines it with a hybrid system for a total system output of 225 horsepower.


As with previous Santa Fe models, and other Hyundai vehicles, the 2021 model gets a slew of standard safety features for every trim, with additional amenities available in packages or upper trims. Some of our favorite standard safety features include automatic emergency braking, automatic high beam control, and adaptive cruise control. To learn more about these and some of the other options that are available for this model, we suggest reaching out to our sales team.

  • Streamlined trim level options, with three options now instead of four
  • Wider availability of tech and comfort features
  • New safety aids for drivers added to certain trim levels

Performance and Capability

There are two engines available for the 2020 Santa Fe model. Base power for all three trims is supplied by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque.

Drivers who prefer a little more oomph on the streets of Roseville, MN can opt for a more-powerful, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 235 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. This engine is available for the mid-level and top trims, giving you more control over how your SUV works.

Both engines give drivers in White Bear Lake, and beyond, the choice between either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. An eight-speed automatic transmission is also standard equipment for both powertrains.

Available Trim Configurations

With the streamlining of trim levels for 2020, the new Hyundai Santa Fe we have available now gives you three great options to choose from. Each one has a long list of sought-after features and amenities standard, with some optional packages sprinkled throughout the lineup that can help you personalize it even further.
