2021 Santa Fe Calligraphy

Calligraphy 4dr SUV AWD w/19-in Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 8AM)

I spent 4 weeks researching and finally made the decision to purchase a 2021 Santa Fe Calligraphy. I've had it for about 3 weeks now. Although not a certified luxury SUV it certainly rivals the smooth ride and bells and whistles that luxury SUV's offer at about $10k - $15k less. I cannot rave enough about the vehicle. I previously had an Audi and Infiniti. The Santa Fe Calligraphy is super sleek inside and out. I feel so safe driving it because of all the safety and technological features. It's even semi-autonomous on the highway. Great warranty and 3 years of complimentary maintenance. Test drive one today if you haven't. You won't be disappointed. Wish list: I wish it had the 20 inch rims but they were on backorder. I wish the ambient lighting was also on the door panels and not just on the console and glove area. I wish it had a rotary control knob for the infotainment screen.

Rides like a luxury vehicle

The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe rides and handles like a luxury vehicle. It is so quiet inside and the new electronics rival anything I've seen in much more expensive vehicles.

Great Daily Driver

I'm impressed with the amount of technology that they put in this ride. Lots of good stuff. I'm getting used to the 8 speed transmission. It really does get around when you need to. Plenty of power for a daily driver, cool enough looking for those who like some style, and plenty of room inside. Seats are comfortable, and the leather steering wheel is very nice to the touch. Lane keep assist and smart cruise control are ready to go and very easy to use. It's a pretty smooth ride. The infotainment system is pretty solid. Different drive modes are fun, and again it's a great ride. Easy to go too fast and not notice. The lights are one of my favorite features on the exterior. The T shaped drls are very cool and eye catching. I could go on and on about my new ride. I am obsessed!

Lemon electrical system on delivery

Just received the car back after four days at the dealer. They said the problem was fixed. They said it was a wire and a pin. Well... once the lights came on they would not turn off. The side mirrors would not retract, the interior lights would not turn off. I started that car up again and put the headlight in the off position. The interior still stayed on. I have had this car in my name for 3 weeks. It has been in and out of the repair shop for three weeks and dead waiting to go in for 3 days. I only drove this car for three days during daylight hours. This is patheactic and unacceptable. I want this returned. If ever there was a lemon this one is it. I never should have accepted delivery. It started that day and hasn't been fixed since.

3 weeks in with 2021 Santa fe limited.

Right off the bat after purchasing, I drove it over 320 miles twice in a week. Put it on some rough sounding pavement. It has so far browned me away. 2.5 turbo, has plenty of power. Has auto drive. And me being old school, have to admit its something else. All kinds of safety features which will blow you away until you get used to it. When you turn directionals on , you get a video of real time to see the sides of vehicle before you actually turn. This particular model comes with a loaded package, that would cost you 20 to 30,000 more in any other vehicle. Traded in a 2018 buick enclave which had the ultimate ride and noise reduction. And lots of room. But was just to much for my wife to drive. So after researching the Santa fe, we purchase it. Not to cut short 5 yr to 10 yr warranty. This vehicle also is very quiet compare to the enclave. Hats off to Hyundai for coming up with such a great vehicle.
