It's a Sport Adventure Vehicle. But what does that mean, exactly?

A sport adventure vehicle offers the best features for those who choose to do more than just exist. It is the vehicle for those who want to live.

With the new Hyundai Santa Cruz, you are ready to go where and when you want to.

The new Santa Cruz is the first of its type four-door pickup truck from Hyundai for sale in North America. It's based on the same platform as its Tucson sibling and includes a front end nearly as similar. So notable, they feature daylight running lights behind the grille.

The Santa Cruz's swept-back windshield is just one of the signature features you will notice on the vehicle. Large 20-inch alloy wheels surrounded by impressive wheel arches are others. Since it is brand new, the Santa Cruz features fresh styling from its nose to its tail. These include buttressed C-pillars to emphasize the strength and visual utility of an SUV with the opened-back capability of a compact pickup truck. 

This new vehicle is a unibody-designed adventure truck that combines to offer the latest in automotive technology. Its 4.3-foot deep-lined bed can transport items that can be secured with a lockable tonneau cover. This feature is especially desirable for urban/city-dwelling customers. 

The overall length of the Santa Cruz is just right for most users. Made to fit in an average garage, the Santa Cruz is designed to carry up to five passengers comfortably. The behind-cab cargo bed is good for carrying over 1,700 pounds of payload.

What powers the Hyundai Santa Cruz?

The Santa Cruz is offered with a choice of two engines. A 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated inline-4 engine is standard and makes more than 190 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. It joins up to an 8-speed automatic transmission for quick and secure shifts.

An available 2.5-liter direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine is here for real power users. Producing 275 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, this turbo is matched to a high-performance 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) for swift automatic gear changes. The Hyundai Santa Cruz includes a front-wheel drive powertrain for both vehicles, but Advanced HTRAC all-wheel drive (AWD) is an available option. With a naturally aspirated engine, the Santa Cruz can tow up to 3,500 pounds. Ordering the more powerful turbo engine can increase the capacity to 5,000 pounds.

The HTRAC all-wheel drive brings a multi-mode drive selector and electronic variable-torque-split dual-clutch with active torque control. Driving in Sport mode can vary the torque heading to the rear wheels. The system varies its response to improve handling and acceleration when in a straight line and through medium and high-speed cornering and hill starts.
