Everything We Love And Hate About The Hyundai Santa Fe Plug-In Hybrid

The base hybrid well stocked with features that include Hyundai’s HTRAC all-wheel-drive system, navigation-based smart cruise control, and blind spot avoidance. In fact, the list of standard features feels endless. Other highlights include remote start, heated front seats, wireless charging, dual-zone automatic climate control, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. The infotainment screen is an eight-inch unit, but it’s perfectly livable.

Hyundai calls the SEL Premium “the balanced trim,” and it comes in at $38,360 and adds luxuries like a panoramic sunroof, a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen, a Harman Kardon 12-speaker premium sound system, and 19-inch wheels. Stepping up to the Limited trim, Hyundai adds all the bells and whistles, including ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, rain-sensing wipers, a remote smart parking assistant, a surround-view monitor, and a blind- spot view monitor. For $40,710, it’s a lot of vehicle for the money.
