Performance

Available with either gas power or cutting-edge hybrid technology, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe is a customizable SUV option that can easily take you from work, to school, to weekend adventures near Portland, Scarborough, and beyond.

The addition of an efficient, plug-in hybrid powertrain for model year 2022 brings the total number of engine options to four. Previously, drivers had their pick of two gas engines, with availability dependent on the trim level they prefer. Now, there are four great options, including:

  • The base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, offering 191 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque
  • An upper-level upgrade, in the form of a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, with 277 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque
  • The new, turbocharged hybrid engine, a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that works in conjunction with an electric motor to produce 225 horsepower and earns an estimated 34 mpg rating in combined driving
  • A plug-in hybrid version, which is rechargeable and can get an estimated 30 miles of electric-only driving on a full charge before converting to traditional hybrid function

All-wheel drive is standard with all hybrid Santa Fe models this year and is available as an option across the rest of the lineup as well.

If you have a small popup camper or other trailer, you'll be happy to note that the 2022 Santa Fe also has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, making it useful for hobbies and lifestyles here in the Portland area.

Technology

A continuation of the fourth Santa Fe generation, the 2022 model has the tech features that drivers have come to know and expect. Every model gets a range of amenities for communication and entertainment, an more features are added as you move up and explore upper trims. For example, standard fare includes:

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration with wireless connectivity
  • Multiple USB ports for connectivity, including some in the front seat and some for rear seat passengers
  • Touchscreen infotainment interface

Plus, many additional features are available the higher up in trims that you move. Some of our favorite highlights include a premium-brand sound system upgrade with 12 speakers, a larger touchscreen display, and a cutting-edge automated parking system that can steer your SUV into a parking spot with little or no driver intervention.

Interior and Exterior Features

In 2021, the Hyundai Santa Fe introduced longtime fans and newcomers alike to a significant design upgrade for the overall SUV, inside and out. Sized in between larger, midsized SUVs and smaller, compact models, the 2022 version offers the same design, and it fills the perfect niche for Portland drivers who crave a little more interior space than a tiny SUV, but easier to park and maneuver than larger options.

This exterior design includes a prominent and attention-stealing front grille that other drivers will notice even from a distance, highlighted by standard LED headlights and 18-inch wheels. As you move up to the higher trim levels, the exterior of the Santa Fe gets a few design tweaks, including roof rails, a hands-free rear liftgate, larger wheels, a noise-reducing windshield, upgraded LED headlights, and much more.

Slip inside the new Santa Fe and prepare to immerse yourself in an interior that's spacious and comfortable. Stain resistant cloth upholstery is standard, with leather upholstery available on upper models, and every model gets a rear cargo hold that can accommodate up to 36.4 cubic feet of gear behind the back row, with more space available for extra cargo by folding down the rear seats.

Available Trims

When it comes to personalizing your SUV driving experience, the 2022 Santa Fe is available in a menu of four well-equipped trim levels. Choosing your ideal fit comes down to the level of features you're looking for and which of the four great engines you prefer. Options include:

  • Hyundai Santa Fe SE, the base model gets the entry-level engine and has available AWD, with standard front-wheel drive
  • Hyundai Santa Fe SEL, the next trim level up can be ordered with either AWD or front-wheel drive, and with either the base, gas four-cylinder engine, or with the efficient and smooth hybrid options
  • Hyundai Santa Fe Limited, an upper-level model with your pick of all-wheel or front-wheel drive, and the option of either the upgraded, turbocharged four-cylinder engine or hybrid power
  • Hyundai Santa Fe Calligraphy, the top-of-the-line model gets all-wheel drive standard, as well as the top-tier turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine
