2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid for Sale in Fairfield, CT
The Hyundai Santa Fe is one of the crossover class’ most remarkable vehicles, and for 2021, it’s certain to foster a larger following thanks to the introduction of a brand-new hybrid powertrain. The hybrid version commits to maintaining the best aspects of the ruggedly handsome and upscale gasoline-only version, but it has the added benefit of being significantly more fuel efficient. The ’21 Santa Fe Hybrid is also a venerable adventure vehicle that’s great for on-the-go families since it provides a massive list of standard features, a generous bundle of active safety aids, and a comfortable, spacious cabin that’s every bit as stylish as it is practical.
Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy
If you’re looking to purchase the ’21 Santa Fe Hybrid, you’ll have your pick of three trim levels: Blue, SEL Premium, and Limited. Regardless of which you choose, it will come with a hybrid powertrain that includes a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor that together produce 226 hp. They all have a six-speed automatic transmission and a standard all-wheel drivetrain, too. If you plan on towing some cargo, the ’21 Santa Fe Hybrid allows you to pull up to 2,000 lb. with trailer brakes. Without trailer brakes, the maximum towing capacity is 1,650 lb.
Efficiency is one of the ’21 Santa Fe Hybrid’s chief highlights. According to EPA estimates, the Blue returns 36 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, whereas the SEL Premium and Limited achieve 33 city/30 highway. All three trims also have something called regenerative braking, wherein the kinetic energy created from pressing and depressing the brake pedal is converted into electricity, which can be used to supply power to the battery.
There’s no shortage of premium features in the ’21 Santa Fe Hybrid. The exterior of the Blue is comprised of automatic LED headlights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators and approach lights (or puddle lights), rear privacy glass, roof rails, and a hands-free liftgate.

The Blue is also Digital Key compatible, allowing you to lock, unlock, and start the vehicle directly from your smartphone. The SEL Premium serves up a panoramic sunroof, leather-trimmed seats, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, LED interior lighting, and premium door sill plates. The Limited tops the range with projector-type LED headlights, power-folding side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a deluxe driver’s seat featuring a leg cushion extender, memory functions, and additional lumbar adjustments.
