2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz: Hyundai’s New Pickup Pushes The Right Buttons

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz is a long time coming. First seen as the Santa Cruz Concept at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, Hyundai took its sweet time in bringing this neat concept to life. If the lowish ride height is a telltale sign, the new Santa Cruz is not a truck per se. Hyundai refers to it as a Sport Adventure Vehicle or SAV, but we like to call it a crossover pickup in the same mold as Honda’s Ridgeline. “Santa Cruz, with its bold styling, breaks open an all-new segment territory, both f...
