 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz Unique Features Redefining New York City Leasing

Be at the forefront of urban driving with the 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz, a vehicle that encapsulates innovation and versatility. As the vibrant pulse of New York City beckons, this compact pickup truck introduces a fresh dimension to commuting. Read on to discover how Santa Cruz’s distinctive attributes harmonize with the dynamic energy of the city, redefining leasing possibilities.

Interior, Cabin And Comfort

The 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz offers a roomy cabin with ample headroom and adjustable front seats. The back seat is slightly cramped for adults. The futuristic cabin features an optional large center touchscreen and digital instrument panel. While shortcut buttons are touch-sensitive and distracting, overall organization is logical. Enhanced visibility comes from an optional 360-degree parking camera. The Santa Cruz offers a smooth ride, comfortable and heated/ventilated front seats, but rear seats are less comfortable.

Infotainment And Connectivity

Hyundai’s top Limited trim of the 2023 Santa Cruz features a 10.25-inch center touchscreen and digital driver’s display, both with high-resolution graphics. The optional Bose sound system delivers quality audio. While wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available on base trims, the larger screen requires a USB connection. Standard driver aids include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and forward collision warning, although some warning systems are overly sensitive.

Towing And Storage

The 2023 Santa Cruz features a short bed, similar to the Maverick’s dimensions. The tailgate adjusts to accommodate 4-by-8 sheets of plywood. The in-bed trunk has a drain and is versatile for storing gear or ice. Interior storage resembles that of compact SUVs, with child seat anchors easily accessible. The Santa Cruz boasts a strong 5,000-pound towing capacity, but lacks a trailer brake controller for heavy loads.

Fuel Economy

Equipped with an optional turbocharged 2.5-liter engine and all-wheel drive, our test Santa Cruz is estimated to achieve 22 mpg combined (19 city/27 highway) by the EPA. Though not leading the segment (Maverick gets 25 mpg, Ridgeline gets 21 mpg), the Santa Cruz exceeded expectations in real-world testing with an impressive 29 mpg over a 115-mile evaluation route.

Engine And Transmission

The 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz boasts a base 2.5L inline-4 gas engine producing 191 hp at 6,100 rpm and 181 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. Equipped with 16 valves and double overhead cam (DOHC) technology, the engine incorporates variable valve timing for optimal performance. Standard dual fuel injection ensures efficiency. The 8-speed shiftable automatic transmission, coupled with front-wheel drive, offers a smooth driving experience. Additionally, standard descent control enhances capability.

In conclusion, the 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz stands as an emblem of modern urban adaptability, seamlessly intertwining practicality with style. To embark on a new level of city driving, seize the opportunity to lease this remarkable vehicle from VIP Auto. Elevate your New York City experience today.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
