The American office of the brand has revealed the full price list, and customers are unlikely to like it. If the “fourth” Santa Fe could be purchased for 30 thousand dollars, then for a new product you will have to pay at least 35.3 thousand dollars: an increase of almost 18 percent! Top versions are even more expensive: previously the most equipped version cost 44 thousand dollars, but now the mark of 50 thousand dollars has been broken.
In North America, sales will begin with a gasoline version with a 2.5 turbo engine (281 horsepower, 422 Nm), an 8-speed robot, front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. This crossover is offered in five trim levels, including the “off-road” version of the XRT. In the spring, a plug-free hybrid with a 1.6 turbo engine and an electric motor will be added to the range: it will be more expensive, but there are only three modifications.
The basic version is equipped with 18-inch wheels, a fabric interior and a simple rear view camera. However, even this Santa Fe has a seven-seater interior, a media system with a 12.3-inch touchscreen, an electric fifth door, adaptive cruise control with lane control and auto braking systems.

The most expensive options, costing $50,000, have 21-inch wheels, an interior trimmed in Nappa leather, separate second-row seats with heating and ventilation and ottomans, a virtual instrument panel, a projection screen and an expanded set of electronic assistants.
A conservative modification with a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission has been confirmed for the USA, but such Hyundai Santa Fe is not yet for sale. A rechargeable hybrid will also be added to the range, meaning that by the end of 2024, the price range for the crossover will greatly expand.
