Hyundai Santa Cruz Bed & Exterior Design

The most notable attribute of the Santa Cruz exterior is the integrated rear pick-up truck bed. The open bed allows you to carry urban, adventure, occupational, or even home improvement gear and equipment more efficiently than a traditional SUV trunk space. The bed area also includes hidden bed storage and an available lockable tonneau cover for maximum security.

What sets Santa Cruz apart, though, is what you get with the rest of the vehicle in combination with the open bed space. Overall the Santa Cruz features a bold and modern design typically not found with open-bed utility vehicles. At the front, the daytime running lamps (DRLs) create a striking parametric jewel design that leads into a stylish cascading front grille.

As you move around the Santa Cruz, you'll notice the steeply raked A- and C-pillars further emphasize the unique sporty profile of the vehicle. The large 20-inch triangular design alloy wheels are surrounded by armor-like wheel arches, alluding to its off-road capability.

The rear tail lamps feature a horizontal "T" lighting signature which adds visual width and are embossed with: "Designed in California" as a testament to the passion of Hyundai's California-based design team.

2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Colors

The 2022 Santa Cruz features six exterior color options: Sage Gray, Phantom Black, Ice White, Blue Stone, Hampton Gray, and Mojave Sand.

2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Interior

As with the exterior, the Santa Cruz interior is unlike most with open-bed utility vehicles. The interior is spacious like an SUV and features a sophisticated and refined appearance. The Hyundai designers also focused on ease of ingress and egress and ergonomic comfort on long drives. Features like available heated and ventilated front seats, in-cabin storage under the rear seats, and an available Bose® audio system all add to the comfort and convenience of the interior.

A standard 8-inch edgeless touchscreen infotainment screen seamlessly integrates into the center console, allowing you to easily access your favorite music and audio. A 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and digital instrument cluster are also available.

Features & Technology

One of the most exciting features of the all-new 2022 Santa Cruz is the standard Wireless Apple CarPlay® and Wireless Android Auto integration. This wireless technology allows your mobile device to automatically pair with your Santa Cruz while keeping your device in your pocket, purse, or backpack. You can also easily charge up your mobile device on the available Qi wireless charger. These wireless features help create a seamless transition between your daily life and driving where you need to go.

For those with Android devices, the available Hyundai Digital Key app allows you to access vehicle controls remotely, such as locking and unlocking the vehicle, starting the engine, or activating the panic alert. The Digital Key enables owners to leave traditional keys at home and even allows secure sharing of keys with family and friends.

Hyundai SmartSense Safety

The Santa Cruz also offers a suite of Hyundai SmartSense safety features. Standard SmartSense features include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) w/ Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection, Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), and Driver Attention Warning (DAW). Other optional features are available such as Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA), Surround View Monitor (SVM), and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA).

Hyundai Santa Cruz Drivetrain & Performance

Of course, as a Sport Adventure Vehicle, the Santa Cruz offers ample performance and capability but doesn't sacrifice efficiency. The Santa Cruz comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, front-wheel drive (FWD), an 8-speed automatic transmission, and Drive Mode Select. A turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine producing up to 281 horsepower and HTRAC All Wheel Drive (AWD) are both available. With the available AWD, the Santa Cruz can achieve up to 27 Highway MPG. Turbocharged AWD models also have a towing capacity of up to 5000 lbs.
