2022 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV


The 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV Gets Some Major Updates

With a major update occurring just a year ago, it would be easy to expect that the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe wouldn't see much in the way of fundamental changes over the outgoing model. However, a new powertrain, new trim level options, and more premium features are helping to make the newest Santa Fe model better than ever, and you can find yours at our Hyundai dealership near Fairfax and Alexandria, VA today.

Key Updates for the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe

There are several major updates to discuss with the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe, starting with the availability of a plug-in hybrid powertrain that is a first for the mid-size Hyundai SUV. It sports a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine at it's heart, developing 178 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque on it's own. When combined with the electric motors though, output leaps to 260 horsepower and 224 pound-feet of torque, giving you power commensurate with high-end modern SUVs. And because it's a plug-in, you'll get up to 31 miles of fuel-free driving range, perfect for your commute from Manassas or Ashburn, VA.

On the other end of the scale, the new Santa Fe XRT shows off a more rugged side of the Santa Fe, adding features that enhance both capability and toughness for your off-road adventures. You'll get side steps for ease of access, and skid plates to protect the underside of your vehicle from rocks and debris. Plus, a unique wheel design will help set this model apart from the crowd.


Non-hybrid Hyundai Santa Fe models will come with a choice of two different powertrains, starting with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. This model will get you 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque, and is available with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive depending on the model you choose. You'll get up to 28 mpg highway and 25 mpg around town with this version of the Santa Fe, making it a respectable choice for your daily drives.

Those seeking a bit more punch will find it in the 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine available on top-trim Santa Fe models. This engine churns out 281 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque, giving you truly impressive performance from this five-seat SUV. Plus, highway fuel economy matches that of the not-turbocharged models, while city efficiency dips to 22 mpg thanks to the extra low-end punch provided by the turbo.


There is no shortage of safety tech available in the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe, with the Smart Sense suite of driver assistance features coming standard on all new Santa Fe models. Here you'll get forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection as a part of the front-end collision sensing package, plus lane keep assist and road sign recognition as optional extras. A surround-view monitor helps keep track of the world around you, while rear cross traffic warning and blind spot monitoring help you when your mirrors can't. There is even a driver attention warning that can detect when you're distracted or drowsy and warn you that it is time for a break.

Comfort and Cargo Space

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe comfortably seats five adults, with over 44 inches of rear legroom and a reclining rear seat. Three-zone automatic climate control is available, letting those in back determine their temperature and fan settings separate from those up front. And with 36.5 cubic feet of cargo space in back, you'll have plenty of room for luggage, groceries, sports bags, and whatever else might need to come along for the ride.
