2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz

One-of-a-kind Sport Adventure Vehicle

Extraordinary versatility

While trucks have always been closely associated with domestic manufacturers such as Ford and Chevy, we've seen many overseas brands expanding into the market and even competing head-to-head in terms of prowess and potency. And while Honda and Toyota have both been successful in this endeavor, Hyundai is the newest challenger. Now in its second year of production, the Hyundai Santa Cruz combines the body of an SUV with the cargo bed of a pickup. The result is performance and handling that are beyond compare.

Off-the-charts utility

Hyundai takes their efficient engines of a smaller size and puts them to good use, as the Santa Cruz has the advantage of two distinctive powertrain options. The base offering consists of a 2.5L four-cylinder. Generating 191 ponies of horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque, both engines are paired with a performance-ready eight-speed automatic transmission. A turbocharged version of the same engine is available, and with 281 horsepower and the ability to crank out 311 lb-ft of torque, it has no trouble delivering the goods. The latter of these two engines can tow 5,000 lbs when properly equipped, which is more than capable of competing with some of the smaller-sized pickups that are currently on the market.

A show of confidence

While Hyundai might be spreading its wings into the pickup market, you would never guess it by sitting behind the wheel and embracing the slick interior that the Santa Cruz offers. In fact, with its blacked interior, large infotainment setup, and stylish gear-shifter, one might think they were in an upscale domestic truck such as a GMC Denali. An available touch screen that stretches past ten inches and an eight-speaker Bose stereo system rival many domestic models and combines rugged ability with sophisticated luxury only in the way that Hyundai can.

Island Hyundai

While adaptive cruise control is only available on the Santa Cruz, Hyundai includes various features that are more than ideal for the trucking and trailering lifestyle. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are both standard and very important to have at your disposal when towing. And to increase reaction time, automated emergency braking and pedestrian detection are included to provide oversight with safety.

The 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz is the perfect vehicle for those who want the versatility of an SUV and the attributes that are commonly associated with a pickup truck.
