2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Engine Specs

Santa Fe: Under the Hood

The first area you’ll want to inspect on the 2021 Santa Fe is its powertrain. This will lay the groundwork for the rest of the experience the SUV provides. The 2021 Santa Fe comes stocked with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine equipped to produce 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque, providing excellent muscle and control.

While powerful, the Santa Fe will also perform efficiently. The vehicle is stocked with an 8-speed automatic transmission that helps it earn an EPA-estimated 25 city/28 highway MPG.*

Your fuel economy will be improved further with the standard Idle Stop & Go feature. This will detect when you’ve come to a complete halt—at a red light, for example—and turn off your vehicle to conserve fuel. Then, when you’re ready to go, it will turn the engine back on. Evidenced here, the Santa Fe will work hard for you and your wallet.
