2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

For those of us who want the best of both worlds

For adventure seekers who love exploring the outdoors, you're going to love the first-ever 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz. It combines the practicality of a pickup truck with the comfort of an SUV. The Santa Cruz is available in 4 different trims: SE, SEL, SEL Premium, and Limited. The MSRP starts at $25,000 for the SE model and goes as high as $35,000.

There is no predecessor for the Hyundai Santa Cruz, meaning this is the first-ever of its kind. The concept of the Santa Cruz was revealed at the Detroit auto show in 2015 and has finally come to fruition in 2021. Learn more about the 2022 Santa Cruz performance, interior, and safety features.

The 2022 Santa Cruz Is Changing The Game


With Santa Cruz, there are two powertrain options. Its standard engine has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 190 horsepower and is capable of 180 pound-feet of torque. In comparison, the upgraded engine features a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder that generates 275 horsepower with 310 pound-feet. It has a total towing capacity of 5,000 pounds.


Also, due to the more compact design and smaller size of the pickup truck, it has much better maneuverability.

Exterior and Interior

Santa Cruz is a mid-size pickup truck with a 6 feet long bed when the tailgate is down. This extra compact bed gives the truck more versatility in terms of maneuverability and parking in the city. It's built with a unibody frame, making it look much more sporty and futuristic. Unibody means that the body acts as the frame to hold the wheels and suspension while also supporting the vehicle's weight.


The interior of the Hyundai Santa Cruz brings style and comfort together. This vehicle seats up to five people comfortably and provides an 8-way power driver's seat along with lumbar support. In addition, both front seats are ventilated and heated. To add to the luxurious aesthetics, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz features a power sunroof, leather-trimmed seats, and leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel. There's even a removable bin under the second row for additional storage.

Safety Features

Like many of the other 2022 Hyundai vehicles, it is connected with the Hyundai SmartSense system to deliver advanced safety features such as:


       Driver attention warning

       Rear occupant alert

       Highway driving assist

       Blindspot view monitor

       Smart cruise control along with stop and go

       Forward and rear-cross traffic collision avoidance
