2022 Hyundai Santa Fe vs 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Plug-in Hybrid

Serving Memphis, TN

The Hyundai Santa Fe has been impressing Memphis-area drivers for years with its strong capabilities, bold functionality, and well-designed features. Sitting between the Tucson and the Palisade in the lineup, the Hyundai Santa Fe has a spacious, two-row cabin that can comfortably accommodate all your passengers. In 2022, the Hyundai Santa Fe introduced a bold update with the debut of the Hyundai Santa Fe Plug-In Hybrid. You can depend on our reps at Wolfchase Hyundai to help you pick out your perfect Hyundai Santa Fe.


The gas-powered Santa Fe has two powertrains available for its five trims. The first four trims draw 191 horsepower from a four-cylinder, 2.5-liter system. The top Santa Fe trim has a 281-horsepower, 2.5-liter turbocharged, four-cylinder unit. These both are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. If you opt for the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Plug-In Hybrid, your SUV will receive 260 net horsepower from its four-cylinder, 1.6-liter turbocharged engine and electric motor. The Santa Fe PHEV version also has a HTRAC all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission.


The main difference between the Santa Fe and the Santa Fe PHEV is the PHEV’s plug-in charging platform. The façades of both options are otherwise identical. Tall, confident dimensions with swooping, crisping accents over the sides and hood define the look. The large grille with honeycomb mesh on the nose is underlined by a thick chrome bar. The T-shaped headlights are segmented for a striking touch.


In both the Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Plug-In Hybrid, you can appreciate various shared features. Depending on the trims being compared, you could find equipment like heated seats, a push-button ignition, a sunroof, a multi-zone automatic climate management system, smart device integration, a digital display screen, a push-button engine starter, and leather material.
