2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid offers more cargo space than competitors

Since 2022 was the second model year for the Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid, the model was unchanged from its debut year. This Hyundai is a little larger than most five-passenger, two-row compact crossovers, offering up to 72.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity, or 36.4 cubic feet while you’re using the rear seats.

Among its competitors are the industry’s top-selling hybrid SUVs, including the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, 2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid, Honda CR-V Hybrid, and Ford Escape with the optional hybrid driveline. Many of these are lower-priced and all offer better estimated fuel economy than the Hyundai.

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid was made in three trim levels: Blue, SEL Premium, and Limited. All come with a 1.6-liter gasoline engine, an electric hybrid motor, a six-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive. EPA-estimated fuel economy ranges from 32 to 34 mpg in combined city/highway driving. Fuel economy figures are based on EPA estimates for when vehicle sold as new. Actual mileage will vary based on things like battery age, vehicle condition and history, driving and charging habits, accessory use, and driving conditions. Battery capacity may decrease with time and use. See for more info. Buyers looking for a little luxury can choose the SEL Premium trim and get leather upholstery, a 10.25-inch touchscreen display, and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.

5 reasons to buy the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid

What We Like

Roomy interior: Because the Santa Fe Hybrid is a little larger than most of its competitors, it offers more room for passengers and cargo alike. This is good news for growing families who need to carry a bit more stuff but don’t want to upgrade to a midsize three-row SUV. With up to 72.1 cubic feet, the Santa Fe Hybrid is good for a trip to the home supply or big-box store, or for a camping trip.

Standard all-wheel drive: While some automakers offer the less expensive base-trim vehicles with front-wheel drive as the only option, Hyundai delivers the Santa Fe Hybrid with all-wheel drive across the lineup. If you live in a place that experiences winter weather, having all-wheel drive is likely a nonnegotiable requirement for your family wagon, and the Hyundai has it.

Crash test ratings: The 2022 Santa Fe Hybrid earned a five-star overall crash test rating from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, and this vehicle has a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The SUV’s front crash prevention system for both vehicles and pedestrians is rated “Superior.” Certain vehicles may have unrepaired safety recalls. Click here to look up a specific vehicle.

What Needs Improvement

Fuel economy: The trade-off for the Hyundai’s larger and more spacious size is reduced fuel economy. Virtually all the competing models get better EPA-estimated fuel economy than the Santa Fe Hybrid, to the tune of 5-6 mpg.

If fuel economy is important to you, that’s something to keep in mind.
