Specs at a Glance

Built for a family of five, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe SE is packed with signature technologies, such as the SmartSense safety bundle. Having a slightly larger price tag, the SEL model boasts more advanced amenities, including heated front seats.


Generating slightly more than 190 total horsepower in accordance with SAE guidelines, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe SE's 2.5-L engine block uses regular unleaded fuel. Standard on the SEL edition, this I-4 powerplant cranks out just above 180 pound-feet of peak torque. Fuel enters the combustion chambers through Gasoline Direct Injection. Multi-Point Injection provides additional support for optimum cycles. The default I-4 powerplant is mated to a front-wheel drive, which could be replaced with the optional HTRAC All-Wheel Drive. Both types of driveline options are compatible with the Drive Mode Select that improves handling on paved surfaces. Generating a maximum of eight gear ratios, an automatic transmission system propels these midsize Hyundai crossover SUVs. These light-duty family vehicles have an SAE-projected towing capacity of 1,650 pounds. If you purchase the optional trailer brakes, you will gain an extra 350 pounds of towing capability. Additionally, the SE and SEL come standard with the Trailer Sway Control that responds to lateral instability on the road.


Some exterior paint options for the 2022 Santa Fe SE include Calypso Red, Stormy Sea Blue, Twilight Black, and Shimmering Silver. You may choose black or gray for the cloth upholstery inside this entry-level trim. Likewise, the SEL edition is available with the same interior and exterior design options. Both Hyundai crossover SUVs have LED headlights with automatic controls and the High Beam Assist. A rear spoiler adds some sporty flair to these affordable family cars. Some other advanced options for the SEL model include roof rails, heated side mirrors, and an acoustic-laminated front glass. Additionally, this trim offers a hands-free Smart Liftgate with height adjustability.


The trademark Hyundai SmartSense technologies give you plenty of confidence for commanding the 2022 Santa Fe SE. Some default accident-prevention features on the base trim include the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and Driver Attention Warning. The FCA function is intelligent enough to identify moving pedestrians or bicyclists. The entry-level model also has the Lane Keep Assist and Rear View Monitor for better awareness of other obstructions. Some advanced driving aids that are optional on the SEL model include the Highway Driving Assist and Ultrasonic Rear Occupant Alert.
