An In-depth Review Of The 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe

The Santa Fe is a mid-size two-row SUV that slots between the compact Tucson and the mid-size three-row Palisade SUV in Hyundai’s extensive lineup. The 2023 Santa Fe boasts desirable features and a plethora of fuel-efficient powertrain options, including two hybrids.

For the 2023 model year, the Santa Fe did not witness any significant changes asides from reshuffled trim features and optional packages. Shoppers looking for a distinctive mid-size two-row SUV with a solid value proposition can consider leasing the latest Hyundai Santa Fe.

Engine And Transmission

Hyundai offers four powertrain options for the 2023 Santa Fe. The entry-level engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder making 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. There’s also an optional turbocharged version of this engine that puts out 281 horses and 311 lb-ft of torque. Both engines hook up with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive. Shoppers looking to save up on gas money can opt for the hybrid powertrain, which combines a 1.6-liter four-cylinder and two electric motors to produce 226 hp. The plug-in hybrid Santa Fe combines the same 1.6-liter four-cylinder with an electric motor and makes a total of 261 hp. Both hybrids pair exclusively with all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission. The Hyundai Santa Fe delivers a refined ride thanks to its agility and accurate steering response.

Fuel Economy

As expected, the most fuel-efficient Santa Fe is the plug-in hybrid model, which gets a gas-electric combined EPA rating of 76 MPGe. On the other hand, the thirstiest Santa Fe uses the turbo-4 and earns a combined EPA rating of 24 mpg.


Inside, the Hyundai Santa Fe is closely related to the Palisade. It sports a richly-appointed interior with expensive-looking materials and high-tech features. Passenger and cargo space is generous, as well as cubby storage spaces. Standard features include an 8.0-inch touchscreen system, cloth seats, a 6-way adjustable driver seat, 4.2-inch color Multi-Information Display, etc. The Santa Fe can also be outfitted with a 12-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system, leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, etc.
