The convenience of an SUV and the utility of a pickup come together in the Hyundai Santa Cruz, Hyundai's first Sport Adventure Vehicle. Premium comfort and open-bed versatility make your adventures around St. Charles, St. Louis, O'Fallon, and Saint Peters, MO, come to life.

To help inform you of the Santa Cruz's exciting features, our team at St. Charles Hyundai has provided a few highlights, as well as links to more in-depth reviews of what you can expect from a Sport Activity Vehicle. Continue reading to find out more!

Off-the-Charts Utility

The Santa Cruz features a well-designed truck bed that's built to adapt to whatever journey you set out on. It can be used like a regular truck bed to accommodate your gear for biking, surfing, or camping, with a maximum payload capacity of over 1,750 pounds!

A lockable underfloor storage compartment is perfect for smaller bags or personal items you want to keep secure. Thanks to its built-in drain, you can also add ice and turn it into a cooler for your tailgates or campsites! When it's time to pack up for the day, you can secure the entire bed under the integrated locking tonneau cover.

Up for Anything

The Santa Cruz comes equipped with a 2.5L Inline 4-cylinder engine. This engine is also available in a Turbo configuration which provides 281 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque to take you wherever adventure seems to be calling you.

Your adventure begins where the road ends thanks to the available HTRAC All-Wheel Drive capability, which allows the Santa Cruz to tackle various conditions and terrain. Meanwhile, the Santa Cruz's multi-link rear suspension helps keep your ride nice and smooth.

Got a full bed, but still have more to bring along? With a 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity on all-wheel drive models, you can! Snap on a trailer for extra storage, bring a jet ski or two to hit the waves, or maybe even a snowmobile for chillier destinations. 

Gutsy Outside. Glam Inside.

Inside the Santa Cruz, you'll find your favorite sophisticated SUV essentials. An available 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster makes tracking vital information easier. Meanwhile, available leather-trimmed seating and heated and ventilated front seats keep you comfortable no matter the weather outside.


With seating for five, and 101.8 cubic feet of passenger volume, the Santa Cruz boasts plenty of room for you and your guests. Let's take a closer look at how the interior measures up:
