2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz for Sale in Hyannis, MA
Trims and Mechanical Specs
Hyundai makes its all-new Sport Adventure Vehicle (as they like to call it) in four trim levels: SE, SEL, SEL Premium, and Limited. The first two trims get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (191 hp and 181 lb.-ft. of torque) with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The available upgrade is a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder (281 hp and 311 lb.-ft. of torque) with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and paddle shifters. The latter comes in conjunction with standard all-wheel drive, but the smaller powertrain can be ordered with either AWD or front-wheel drive. Since the Santa Cruz has pickup truck DNA, it has a payload stat: it can carry 1,753 pounds in its 4.3-foot-long bed. It can tow as well: versions with the smaller powertrain can pull up to 3,500 lb., while those with the larger engine can handle as much as 5,000 lb.
Standard Equipment, Trim by Trim
One of the highlights of the base SE – and every trim for that matter – is the cargo bed, which is accessed via a multi-functional tailgate (which can be released remotely) and includes both underbed and sidewall storage compartments and rotatable cargo D-rings. Other noteworthy attributes of the SE are cloth seats, smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), a rearview camera with dynamic parking guidelines, halogen headlights with automatic on/off, LED taillights and daytime running lights, trailer pre-wiring, remote keyless entry, a 12-volt power outlet, and dual USB ports.
The SEL ups the ante with heated side mirrors, proximity entry, remote start, push-button ignition, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support. Another perk of the SEL is that it’s eligible for the Activity Package, which includes bed upgrades in the form of a tonneau cover, LED lights, a 115-volt power inverter, and adjustable tie-down cleats. The other Activity Package amenities are roof rails, a sunroof, sliding and de-fogging rear glass, a wireless phone charger, a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, and LED interior lights.
The SEL Premium gets the contents of the Activity Package as standard equipment, along with LED headlights, the class-exclusive Digital Key (allows you to start the vehicle using your phone), automatic climate control (dual-zone), a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a HomeLink universal garage door opener. The cream-of-the-crop Limited adds rain-sensing wipers, leather seats (ventilated in the front row), a heated steering wheel, and two second-row USB charging ports.
Active Safety Features
Hyundai’s SmartSense system of advanced driver aids is standard in the ’22 Santa Cruz, and the higher trims get a few more technologies. The SE receives forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, automatic high beams, driver attention warning, and rear occupant alert. The SEL and SEL Premium add blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, and safe exit warning. The Limited gets the full treatment with a surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control, and a blind-spot view monitor.
The SE’s infotainment system consists of an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SEL and SEL Premium also get SiriusXM satellite radio. The Limited is furnished with a 10.25-inch touchscreen plus navigation and a deluxe Bose audio system, but wireless smartphone integration isn’t compatible with the larger screen, so this infotainment setup reverts to plug-in Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
