Awesome ride.

Great gas mileage, comfortable, love the driver assist, turbo is a fast truck and just enough room for golf clubs, ebikes, and whatever else I need to haul around. Not a single problem after 20,000 miles. A lot of these negative reviews are competing dealerships leaving garbage reviews.

Why I love my Santa Cruz

I absolutely love my Santa Cruz. As the sole driver, I knew we needed a truck, but I didn't want to drive a truck. We saw the Santa Cruz on the highway and I loved it. I did some research. I just wanted to get behind the wheel--no intention of buying. We took Genie home with us that day. Genie, because she's everything I wanted in a vehicle. Love the safety features, the taneau cover, the footsteps in the bumper are great as I am 5' 1/2" and 74 years young. I have no trouble getting into the truck bed. She's pretty peppy, too!

2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz review: Our expert's take

By Brian Normile

The 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz is the latest vehicle to add a blacked-out trim to its lineup. Dubbed the Night, the new trim will sit near the top of the Santa Cruz hierarchy. Other updates to the compact pickup truck (Hyundai would prefer we call the Santa Cruz a “Sport Adventure Vehicle”) include additional standard safety features and improved equipment for higher trims. Prices are also increasing: The 2023 base SE now starts at $26,745, a $1,010 jump from the 2022 SE (all prices include destination fee).

The Santa Cruz is available with either front- or all-wheel drive, with AWD standard on higher trims. Power comes from either a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine making 191 horsepower and 181 pounds-feet of torque, or a much peppier turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder producing 281 hp and 311 pounds-feet of torque. The base 2.5-liter is paired to a traditional eight-speed automatic transmission; turbo variants use an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic.
