If an adventure in St. Charles, St. Louis, O'Fallon, or Saint Peters, MO, is calling your name, the Hyundai Santa Fe has the innovative features and capable drive that you need. You may be asking yourself, which of its five trim levels is right for you and your family?

Our team at St. Charles Hyundai wants to help you answer that question. That's why we've created this guide to the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe trim levels. Below, you'll learn more about what features you'll get with each one.

Santa Fe Trim Levels: Standard Features

The Hyundai Santa Fe SE is the base trim level of this SUV. The 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that lies at its heart is capable of producing 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque.

The engine is partnered up with the standard 8-speed automatic transmission. It includes SHIFTRONIC® technology, which allows you to personalize the gear changes.

When you're packing up for a road trip, you'll have 36.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. On top of that, the standard 60/40 split fold-flat second-row seats will allow you to maximize your storage space with 72.1 cubic feet of cargo space.

You'll also get a standard 8-inch color touchscreen display with this Hyundai Santa Fe trim level. Adding to that, standard Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration will make it easy to keep up with the apps you love. Finally, to make parking even easier, there's a Rear View Monitor with parking guidance.

Hyundai Santa Fe Trim Levels: How to Get More Power

If you'd like to upgrade your power output, the available 2.5L Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine turns out up to 277 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. It comes equipped with the Limited, Calligraphy 2.5T AWD, and Calligraphy trims.

For improved control on slick roads and all-terrain trails, there's the HTRAC All Wheel Drive system. This option is available on any of the Hyundai Santa Fe trim levels.

Starting with the SEL trim configuration, you'll get more comfort and convenience options, like dual automatic temperature control with CleanAir Ionizer and Predictive Logic. With this, you and your front passenger can both choose your preferred comfort level.

There's also a hands-free smart power liftgate with auto open function. This makes it easier to pack up, even when your hands are full.

When you're ready to blast the tunes, there's optional Harman Kardon® premium audio with Clari-Fi™ Music Restoration Technology and QuantumLogic®. This audio system is available on the SEL and standard on all higher trim levels for a crisper and more indulgent music experience.

The Limited, Calligraphy 2.5T, and Calligraphy configurations add a 10.25-inch touchscreen display. It includes a navigation system for guidance. This combined technology will let drivers utilize infotainment while they dash around.

Combining Safety and Smarts With the Hyundai Santa Fe

There is a wide variety of safety and driver-assistive features with this SUV. You'll have more confidence behind the wheel of any Hyundai Santa Fe trim level. The Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection helps drivers detect pedestrians and vehicles to make roads safer for everyone.

Additional features, like Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, are standard on the SEL and higher trim levels.

For parking convenience, you can consider the Remote Smart Parking Assist feature. This feature is standard on the Limited and higher trims.

The three highest trim configurations will help ensure that no one is left behind thanks to the Ultrasonic Rear Occupant Alert. On top of that, the Limited, Calligraphy 2.5T, and Calligraphy trims will make you a master of the parking space with the Surround View Monitor.
