2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Review

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz isn’t just a truck—it’s an adventure on wheels. Whether you’re riding around Milford, Fairfield, and New Haven, Connecticut, or taking the roads less traveled, it’s going to make for a memorable trip.

Plan for future excursions by visiting Key Hyundai of Milford to see it in person.

Hyundai Santa Cruz Performance

2-Engine Performance

Power can be sought from one of two engines in the Santa Cruz. The 2.5L 4-cylinder engine comes standard and produces 191 horsepower, with 181 lb-ft of torque.

If you know that you’re going to need more power, opt for another trim with the turbocharged version in place. It produces 281 horsepower, with 311 lb-ft of torque to keep things moving.

For highway travel, you’ll be pleased with the gas mileage. The Santa Cruz achieves an EPA-estimated 21 city/26 highway MPG, so you’re concentrating on getting to your destination and not to the gas pump.1

Storage and Towing

Stock up the truck bed with the essentials necessary for a camping trip or to gather plants and mulch to start your garden. The Santa Cruz supplies you with a maximum payload of 1,753 pounds, so you’ll be able to carry it all.

On the sides of your Hyundai, you’ll find underfloor sealed bins to tuck in a few extra items. Plus, the underfloor storage can transform into a cooler, so your drinks will stay cold all the way to the beach or to the campsite.

If you’re planning to bring bikes or jet skis on vacation, when properly equipped, the available 5,000-pound towing capacity will be enough to bring them all.

Technology to Let You Focus on Fun

Streamlined tech tools direct your focus toward the fun of the outing and not scrambling to find out which route you need to take. The available 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation system expertly crafts a route. It also enables you to access your apps through the wireless Android Auto™ & Apple CarPlay® integration.

Before your trip starts, you can warm up the engine through the optional remote engine start. Then, use the Proximity Key to enter your truck and press the push button start. You will be able to see how much gas you have left on the 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster upgrade.

Safety to Stay on Track

A long trip at hand could use some of the Hyundai SmartSense systems. The available Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go will be great to use, if you want to stick to a particular speed and distance behind other cars.

If you’re getting distracted by you and your crew discussing all the things you want to do when you get to your destination, the Lane Keeping Assist will ensure that you stay on track.

The Driver Attention Warning can handle the evening shift, when you’re getting drowsy after all that activity. It watches your driving to detect patterns of drifting.
