The All-New 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz: Concise Review

A Hyundai pickup truck? Who could have thought? But it happened. The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz is the first Hyundai truck. And instead of going into the already saturated midsize or full-size trucks category, Hyundai moved into the newly found compact truck class and became a pioneer by doing so.

If you don’t want all the capability of the full-size truck at the expense of a midsize truck, leasing the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz provides a solution.


Hyundai offers two powertrains in the new Santa Cruz. This compact truck comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that generates 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. The optional and more potent 2.5-liter turbo-four delivers 281 horses and 311 pound-feet.

While both powertrains are hooked to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the optional turbo-charged is mated to a dual-clutch eight-speed automatic.

Towing And Payload

Although it doesn’t tow like your everyday truck, this Hyundai truck delivers a decent max towing of 3,500 to 5,000 pounds.

Fuel Economy

The EPA estimates the 2022 Santa Cruz with the base powertrain and front-wheel drive to return 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. Surprisingly, this figure rises to 1 mpg with the all-wheel drive. The turbo-four variant is rated at 19 mpg city and 27 highway.


Attractive styling, high-quality materials, and easy-to-use tech features have always been the game with Hyundai, and they never failed to deliver with the new Santa Cruz. This four-door crew cab truck has one of the nicest cabins in the midsize truck class. And for infotainment, Hyundai packs a modern 8.0-inch touchscreen with many exciting features.


The new Santa Cruz packs many driver-assist features as standard, including;

  • Automated emergency braking
  • Forward-collision warning
  • Lane-departure warning
  • Lane-keeping assist

The new 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz is a unique truck made for shoppers with exceptional taste. And VIP Auto is here to make leasing this special truck more rewarding to all shoppers. For the most exceptional lease bargain, contact VIP Auto, 1204 Hylan Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10305

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!
