Research: 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz Truck

The Hyundai Santa Cruz Is a New Sport Adventure Vehicle for the Charlotte Area

The Hyundai Santa Cruz offers something different from your typical SUV or truck. As a Sport Adventure Vehicle, it stands alone in its class as a blend of family SUV and industrious pickup truck, and it has a lot of attractive features.

There are quite a few trims for Monroe customers to choose from at Bob Mayberry Hyundai. The SE and SEL kick things off, and they both have more budget-friendly price tags. The Night may be a little more limited in terms of availability, but it has aggressive styling. On the top end of the spectrum, you'll find the SEL Premium and Limited. These are very impressive in terms of their amenities.


One of the reasons why the Santa Cruz is so unique is that it has an open bed in the back and a cabin that has two comfortable rows of seats. The bed measures about 52 inches in length, and it's almost 20 inches deep. This gives you about 27 cubic feet of space to utilize for storage. If you'd like to cover up your items when you're traveling around Matthews, you can get a tonneau cover. Every new Santa Cruz comes standard with LED daytime running lights and LED cargo lights, with LED bed lights being available.

The vehicle's cab is spacious, and, depending on the trim, you could have cloth or leather upholstery. A power-adjustable driver's seat and heated front seats are standard in most Santa Cruz trims, and the Limited get to have heated and ventilated front seats. The available sunroof can bring in a lot of natural light, and it lets you bring more fresh air into the cabin.


There are two options for the powertrain. The standard system consists of a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that will give you almost 200 horsepower. This engine can make the Santa Cruz feel very lively, but there's something that's even more impressive. It's a 2.5-liter, turbocharged engine that's found in the SEL Premium and Limited trims. This turbo engine can generate 281 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque, which is a considerable upgrade.

Further, the SEL Premium and Limited trims are both equipped with all-wheel drive, which is also available for the other trim levels. This could be a good choice if you expect to drive down slippery roads or trails around Waxhaw.



Hyundai has incorporated so much technology into the new Santa Cruz. Take the entry-level SE trim, for example. It has two USB ports, an 8.0-inch touchscreen and smartphone compatibility. It also has a 4.2-inch digital gauge cluster and Bluetooth®, which makes it easier for you to keep your hands on the wheel as you drive around Indian Trail.

When you move up the lineup, you'll start to see 10.25-inch digital instrument clusters as well as SiriusXM® and USB ports in the second row. Our more advanced trims feature wireless charging pads and dynamic voice recognition, too. With the Limited, you'd have the most technology. This trim has a 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation, and it comes with a Hyundai Digital Key program that lets you use your smartphone as a key fob.

Safety Tech

Importantly, the Santa Cruz can help you stay safe. Every new Santa Cruz can detect potential forward collisions. These vehicles can all hit the brakes, if necessary, and they can gently correct steering and turn on their high beams at appropriate times. Some of the available systems include blind-spot monitoring, advanced cruise control and rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist.
