What's New for 2024

The 2024 Santa Cruz builds on its predecessor's success with enhancements like the Trend Package on the Preferred trim. This package now includes 20-inch alloy wheels and leatherette seating, previously exclusive to the Ultimate trim. Plus, new steering wheel haptic feedback for lane keeping and blind-spot collision avoidance assist improves the driving experience.

Performance Features

The Santa Cruz is armed with a standard 2.5-litre turbocharged GDI engine that delivers a vigorous 281 horsepower and an impressive 311 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain is mated to a wet 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifters, enhancing both fuel efficiency and torque capacity for an engaging driving experience that's hard to match. The transmission is designed with the driver in mind, offering steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters for those who desire manual shifting control.

Interior Layout and Options

As you settle into the Santa Cruz, comfort takes the forefront with an ergonomic design that ensures every journey is as relaxing as it is thrilling. The cabin boasts a 10.25-inch full digital instrument cluster that does more than display speed—it brings your drive to life with colourful graphics that change with your driving mode and even includes an available Blind View Monitor for an expanded view of your blind spot, directly within the cluster. The auditory experience is elevated with the optional Bose® premium sound system, making every song on your playlist resonate with clarity.

Exterior Layout and Options

The Santa Cruz's exterior is designed with a focus on utility and aesthetics. The sliding and lockable tonneau cover is lightweight and durable and ensures your cargo's privacy and security. When open, it tucks away neatly, maximizing the cargo area for your convenience. With a bed length of approximately 52 inches, this pickup adapts to your needs, no matter the task at hand. Enhancing nighttime functionality, standard LED bed lights cast a bright light for loading and unloading after dark.

Technology and Infotainment Features

The Santa Cruz is a hub of connectivity, boasting an infotainment suite that’s at the cutting edge of technology. Its center stage is the premium, edgeless 10.25-inch hi-definition touch-screen navigation system, designed to provide an immersive and intuitive user experience. Night drives are transformed with the available interior ambient lighting system, where you can tailor the cabin’s atmosphere from a palette of 64 colours.

Safety and Driver Assistance Features

At the heart of Santa Cruz's safety commitment is the SUPERSTRUCTURE™, a cutting-edge chassis crafted from Hyundai's Advanced High-Strength Steel. This platform is engineered to provide remarkable rigidity and strength, ensuring that in the unfortunate event of a collision, the impact energy is absorbed and diverted away from the cabin, safeguarding those inside.
