Designed to enjoy all of the best facets of these two vehicle types, this one-of-a-kind member of the Hyundai model lineup is sure to turn heads and delight your senses.

After you do, odds are it won't be long before you find yourself stopping in at our convenient Wentzville location to see this marvel in person.

Premium Performance for Any Adventure

To kick this conversation off the right way, there is no better place to start than with a look at the raw power and performance of the Santa Cruz. Featuring a 2.5-liter (L) GDI-MPI four-cylinder engine capable of producing up to 191 horsepower (hp) and 181 pound-feet (lb.-ft.) of torque, as well as a 2.5-L turbocharged GDI-MPI four-cylinder engine that offers up 281 hp and 311 lb.-ft. of torque, it is safe to say that this vehicle has what it takes to crank out some serious thrills as you make your way around town.

Should you need to pull along a trailer, camper, or your favorite jet ski or other recreational vehicle, that is no problem at all for the Santa Cruz. Thanks to available HTRAC All Wheel Drive capability and an impressive 5,000 pounds (lbs.) of towing capacity, this nimble hybrid of a truck and an SUV also has all of the muscle it needs packed into its agile frame to take on even the toughest of tasks.

The Functionality of a Truck

Existing as both an SUV and a pickup requires a unique approach to storing cargo, powering equipment, and otherwise preparing you to tackle any obstacle that comes your way. With this in mind, the Santa Cruz leans on the truck side of its shared heritage and offers up an impressive array of features, including:

  • Well-designed, durable open bed
  • Side and sealed underfloor bins (can also be used as a cooler)
  • Power outlets
  • Remote release tailgate
  • Integrated rear bumper steps
  • Integrated tonneau cover

As you can see, these features provide all the proof needed to confirm that Hyundai means business when they say that going toe-to-toe with more conventional trucks is well within the reach of this bold new offering.

The Creature Comforts of an SUV

As for the lessons learned from its SUV predecessors, the Hyundai Santa Cruz places an emphasis on creature comforts that are sure to delight you and your passengers. Specifically, some of the many available features found within the various Santa Cruz trim levels (SE, SEL, SEL Premium, and Limited) include:

  • Heated/ventilated seats
  • Bluelink Connected Car System
  • Dynamic voice control
  • 10.25-inch (in.) touchscreen with navigation
