Compare the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. the Competition

Unlike many of its competitors, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe offers unprecedented powertrain options. Right off the bat, you’ll enjoy a potent, 191-horsepower four-cylinder engine that comes standard on most Santa Fe trims. For a bit more pep, you can opt for a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine offering 281 horsepower — for context, that’s 62 additional horsepower over the most powerful RAV4 engine option. If efficiency is your main priority, know that you can also buy a Santa Fe with either a hybrid or plug-in hybrid engine. Both offer impressive range and mpg ratings that challenge even the most efficient RAV4 models. It’s these kind of 2022 Santa Fe specs that help make this new SUV so compelling.
