Eric's Autos: 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

Eric Peters on

The truck for the person who doesn't want one.

The car for the person who sometimes needs a truck.

The crossover for the person who doesn't want to own just another crossover.

What's Not So Good

Uses almost as much gas as a truck (22-23 mpg, on average).

Optional turbo engine is only available in much more expensive SEL Premium and Limited trims.


Ditto the upgraded stereo system.

Under the Hood

SE and SEL trims come standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 191 horsepower, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and either front-wheel drive or (optionally) all-wheel drive.

One of the upsides of this Hyundai's 2.5-liter engine is that it's a fairly large engine as four cylinders go, and for that reason doesn't need a turbo to make almost 200 horsepower.
