Biggest Upgrades From the Previous Year
Last year’s lineup premiered the Plug-in hybrid trim, which was a groundbreaking change. The changes this year are much more subtle, and mostly consist of turning into standard what was once optional. Examples include a 10.25-inch touchscreen display, OTA map updates, and dynamic voice recognition.
Interior Layout and Options
The Hyundai Santa Fe 2023 comes with stain-resistant cloth upholstery for entry-level models. The Trend Package offers leatherette seating surfaces. This feature is standard for the Urban AWD trim and above models.
The flagship model comes with obsidian black Nappa leather. The back seats are also foldable for all models, increasing cargo capacity. The cabin is also quiet, thanks to the acoustically laminated windshield and side windows. You can control the temperature via a dual-climate air conditioner with a CleanAir ionizer and predictive logic.
Exterior Layout and Options
The entry-level trim, the Preferred AWD, comes with 18-inch alloy wheels. The Urban and Luxury models have 19-inch wheels. While the Ultimate Calligraphy AWD comes with 20-inch wheels. The exterior design is pretty much the same across the whole lineup. All trims have LED headlights, tail lights, daytime running lights, and a roof-mounted lamp.
Upper trims come with black outside mirror covers, rugged side door garnish, front and rear skid plates, a matte black grille, and lower bumper moulding. LED headlights, a premium projector, and a Calligraphy-exclusive front grille are some of the exclusive options.
Technology, Infotainment, and Connectivity
All 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe models come with a 10.25-inch touchscreen display as default. The Luxury Hybrid trim has a 12.3-inch digital cluster and a wireless charging pad. SiriusXM Satellite Radio is available for all models. It's compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The flagship model has a 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system and a surround-view monitor, and a 110V power outlet available.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
Even the entry-level trim has a long list of driver assistance features, meaning it's a safe lineup. There are airbags, and a few automated alerts, such as forward collision alert with a pedestrian, cyclist, and junction-turning detection, lane keeping and lane departure warnings, driver attention warning, adaptive cruise control, high beam assist, and more. The Ultimate Calligraphy trim also has a surround-view monitor, highway driving assist, and parking distance warning.
