The 2021 Santa Fe looks uniquely different on the exterior to the previous model year.

It has a “Menacing Maw,” The grille is well “Different.” This new face includes fancy LED Accents, which adds a degree of sophistication.

Outside Santa Fe rests on 19-inch alloy wheels. LED Headlights and Tail Lights are complemented by the rear private glass and heated power folding down mirrors with turn signals.

This Infotainment Center was so easy to use!

The Surround View Monitor, and Blind View Monitor are helpful components much like Remote Start.

Inside 60/40 split second row folds down flat and supported by Power Release 2nd row. The third roe seating is a little cramp. The further you go in the back the small amount of useful space is found.

The cargo area under floor storage provides additional conveniences for passengers adding to the helpfulness of power door locks with auto up and down.

The large Instrument cluster presents info like oil pressure, miles traveled and time and distance to destination.
