New 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Salem OR

Get Ready for the All-New Hyundai Santa Cruz

If you are searching for a fun, exciting, and unique car to drive, the all-new Hyundai Santa Cruz is a great option. The Santa Cruz is a new offering from Hyundai, and rather than joining a class of vehicles, the Santa Cruz belongs to a class of its own. The Hyundai Santa Cruz is dubbed a Sport Adventure Vehicle, or SAV, which is a new class devised by Hyundai, the parent company. The Hyundai Santa Cruz features a unibody construction that makes it more durable and sturdier than many other cars on the road. The Santa Cruz has an open-air truck bed, and it offers plenty of agility to go along with its superior performance and handling capabilities.

Performance and Handling   


The Hyundai Santa Cruz can be ordered with one of two engines. You can get your Santa Cruz with a base turbo four-cylinder engine with a displacement of 2.5-liter. Keeping with the standard engine, your Santa Cruz will produce 191 horsepower in power and up to 181 pound-feet of torque. If you want even more speed and power, you can upgrade to an optional turbocharged engine with four cylinders. This 2.5-liter engine produces more power at 281 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque.

An eight-speed automatic is the standard transmission for both engines. If you are looking for a car that can tow, the Hyundai Santa Cruz is a perfect vehicle. The Hyundai Santa Fe will tow between 3,500 and 5,000 pounds, which is above average for most vehicles of its size.

Interior and Features 


While the new Hyundai Santa Cruz is adept and agile when it comes to driving off-road, it also has a comfortable cabin that is packed with safety aids and technology. Comfortable seats are also a highlight of Hyundai Santa Cruz. To start with, the Hyundai Santa Cruz comes with a 10.25-inch touchscreen interface. It also has a high-resolution background display.

You can also choose to stick with the standard infotainment system or upgrade to an infotainment system with a larger 10.25-inch display screen size. Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® are standard with the Hyundai Santa Cruz. The Santa Cruz has an overall comfortable interior with plush seats that vary in material by trim level.



Hyundai is known as a leader in the auto industry when it comes to safety. Naturally, you can find a wealth of safety amenities with the Hyundai Santa Cruz. The Santa Cruz starts out with forward collision mitigation and  pedestrian detection across the board. It also comes with a driver-attention alert system and lane keeping assist as its standard safety aids. If you want additional safety features, you can upgrade to a higher trim level or choose to get more safety features as add-on components.

Starting with the mid-level trims you'll get more safety components including a safe-exit system that helps you keep an eye on oncoming traffic before you pull out onto the road or enter onto a highway. Other safety aids that you can add to your Santa Cruz include rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring.

Style and Design


If you want a stylish pickup truck (or SAV, in this case), the Hyundai Santa Cruz is a great bet. The Santa Cruz has a bold chrome-accented front grille and large wheels. LED lights are included on the Santa Cruz, and you have several options for wheel size and design. Side roof rails are available with a package on the lower-level trims and standard on the top trims, and you can also choose to get a power-operated sunroof as well.
