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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
