Available in four trims – SE, SEL, SEL Premium, and Limited - the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz offers two efficiently powerful engines – a 191-hp 2.5L 4-cylinder engine or a turbocharged 2.5L inline 4-cylinder Turbo engine that makes 281 horsepower and up to 311 pound-feet of torque. The SE and SEL come with front-wheel drive (FWD) paired with 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®, while the SEL Premium and Limited trims offer optional HTRAC All-Wheel Drive (AWD) along with an 8-speed Wet Type Dual Clutch Transmission. With its available HTRAC AWD and available turbocharged engine, the 2022 Santa Cruz is capable of 1,411 pounds of payload capacity, and up to 5,000-pound towing capacity for performance you can count on.
However, the most crucial element of the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz is its well-designed, modern exterior which gives it the perfect combination – the convenience and space of an SUV and the open bed functionality of a pickup truck. From the side and sealed underfloor bins that provide extra storage to power outlets to cook food, Santa Cruz’s easy-access open bed has it all. What’s more, the underfloor storage in the cargo bed transforms into a cooler when you’re ready because loads change, and so should your Santa Cruz.
A great bed needs a tailgate that is even better. That’s why the 2022 Santa Cruz comes with a multifunction tailgate that opens at the press of a button on your key fob. You can close it and hang a bike or even adjust its height to support longer equipment. No extra tools are needed.
Step inside, and you are greeted with a relaxed and refined interior that serves up all the favorite essentials of a sophisticated SUV. From its dual-cockpit design with a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and available 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment screen with navigation and available heated/ventilated seats in the front to its spacious and accommodating rear seats, the feel is pure, modern comfort. Plus, you get all the modern conveniences like standard wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® support, available Bose Premium Audio System, and wireless charging to boot.
The available Hyundai Digital Key turns your compatible smartphone into your Santa Cruz key, letting you conveniently unlock doors and start your Santa Cruz. You can even share a digital copy of your key with friends via text, and they can conveniently access and drive your Santa Cruz with your permission when they need it.
