Santa Cruz, with its bold styling, creates new segment territory, both for Hyundai and the industry. Open-bed flexibility coupled with closed-cabin security meets the changing everyday needs of its adventure-oriented buyers, while powerful and efficient engines and superb maneuverability ensure it is a pleasure to drive in urban or off-road environments.

Santa Cruz was developed to be the ultimate Sport Adventure Vehicle, a moniker confirmed in Hyundai’s early consumer research. It features a secure, open bed which includes a lockable tonneau cover and hidden bed storage. Customers also value the comfort, passenger space, fuel efficiency, and parking ease. Santa Cruz, with its unique design, created an entirely new segment that meets these buyer needs like no vehicle before it.
