2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz | Evansville, IN

If you're intrigued by the power and capability of today's trucks but don't like their hulking size and expensive price tags, the all-new 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz is just the vehicle for you. This versatile Sport Adventure Vehicle boasts a handy open-bed truck design and a spacious, family-friendly cab that rivals most SUVs. Whether you're commuting, hauling your loved ones, or planning a weekend of outdoor fun, the Santa Cruz is ready to fit your Evansville lifestyle perfectly. 

Confident Performance

The Santa Cruz provides two powertrain choices to match your preferences. SE and SEL trims come standard with a 2.5-liter engine that puts out 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque while getting up to 27 mpg on the highway.*

Prefer more get-up-and-go? SEL Premium and Limited trims get a 2.5-liter turbo engine that delivers 281 horsepower, 311 lb-ft of torque, and 5,000 pounds of max towing.

Both powertrains prioritize efficiency, giving you up to 27 mpg on the highway.[1] And both are available with agile HTRAC® all-wheel drive so you can tackle slick roads and bumpy terrain with ease. With or without AWD, the Santa Cruz handles far better than your typical truck thanks to its standard self-leveling, independent rear suspension.

A Versatile Bed

The cargo bed of the Santa Cruz gives you the advantages of a truck in a compact, easier-to-handle package. The molded composite bed measures just over 4 feet in length, and it's easy to load it up with groceries, bikes, gardening supplies, or equipment for a southern Indiana camping trip.

For extra security, use the lockable under-bed storage compartment. Other convenient standard bed features include a multifunction remote-release tailgate, integrated rear bumper steps, heavy-duty cargo tie-downs, and side storage compartments. Add the available Activity Package to get an integrated tonneau cover, a bed rail system with tie-down cleats, and LED bed lighting.

Sharp Looks

The Santa Cruz gives you more than just practical exterior features; it also shows off great looks to help you stand out. The sculpted, athletic design incorporates a sleekly angled windshield, eye-catching Hyundai grille, LED daytime running lights and taillights, and body-colored side mirrors. You can also add LED headlights, roof side rails, and a power tilt-and-slide sunroof.

Paint color options range from basic Ice White and Phantom Black to Blue Stone and premium Sage Gray. The Santa Cruz rolls on standard 18-inch alloy wheels or available 20-inch versions.

Comfortable Interior Amenities

While the Santa Cruz resembles a compact truck on the outside, the inside is just like riding in a comfortable SUV. The five-seat interior can fit two adults and three kids with ease, and the stain-resistant cloth upholstery is ideal for family travel.

SEL and above trims give you conveniences like heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver's chair, and Proximity Key entry with push-button start. You can also opt for dual automatic temperature control, second-row USB charging outlets, leather seats, and a heated leather steering wheel on upgraded models.

Advanced Technologies

When it comes to advanced technology, the Santa Cruz doesn't hold back. The standard infotainment setup includes an 8-inch touch screen, wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration, and Bluetooth® hands-free calling. You can also upgrade to a 10.25-inch touch-screen navigation system, Bluelink® connected services, and SiriusXM® satellite radio.

The Santa Cruz excels when it comes to protecting your loved ones, giving you tools like standard Forward-Collision Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Driver Attention Warning, Lane Keeping and Following Assist, and Rear Occupant Alert. For extra help behind the wheel, you can opt for extra systems like a Blind-Spot View Monitor, Highway Driving Assist, and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist.
