At the launch of the 2021 Santa Fe, Hyundai product general manager Andrew Tuitahi revealed that a hybrid will join the family in the second half of next year with petrol and diesel offerings.
But more interestingly, the hybrid will not only offer the performance benefits of a hybrid drivetrain, but also represent a new high-performance hero of the lineup.
“The biggest opportunity to be a high-performance version of the Santa Fe,” he said. “That’s a level of efficiency we’ve never had in Santa Fe.”
Full details will have to wait until closer to its Australian debut but, it’s a fair bet that if all the key drivetrain features, along with its Kia Sorento model, have already been confirmed for the model. A suitable condition is mechanically related siblings.
That means a healthy 169kW and 350Nm for the Santa Fe and while these figures don’t eclipse the current 3.5-litre V6 petrol’s 200kW or the 2.2-litre diesel’s 440Nm, the combined effect makes the new hybrid more powerful. Hope to raise. The most performance-focused version.

Behind it is a torque converter-type automatic transmission replacing Hyundai’s dual-clutch offering and will be slotted into the all-wheel drive version.
Pricing is speculative at this stage but the new hybrid addition is expected to be positioned at the pointer end of the range and close to the current flagship – the $65,200 Highlander diesel.
Arch-rival Toyota will also introduce a hybrid version of its large SUV around the same time but Tuitahi said Hyundai “will do well against the Kluger”.
