2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz for Sale in Springfield, MA
Trims and Mechanical Specs
The Santa Cruz is made in four trim levels – SE, SEL, SEL Premium, and Limited – with the usual growing list of standard features as you go higher in price. There are two powertrain options. The SE and SEL get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder (191 hp and 181 lb.-ft. of torque) and an eight-speed automatic transmission. These two trims come standard with front-wheel drive but are eligible for the available all-wheel drive. The upgraded powertrain, found on the SEL Premium and Limited, is a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder (281 hp and 311 lb.-ft. of torque) with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that can also be controlled via steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. These higher trims get standard all-wheel drive.
The Santa Cruz can tow up to 3,500 pounds with the standard 2.5-liter engine and 5,000 lb. with the larger engine. The payload limit is 1,750 lb. The EPA has estimated fuel economy at 21 mpg around town and 26 mpg on the highway for the SE and SEL with FWD. With AWD the highway value changes to 27 mpg. The SEL Premium and Limited, with their standard AWD, are rated for 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
The value-oriented SE gets you plenty of bang for your buck, starting with its compact but functional cargo bed that includes underbed and sidewall storage compartments, six tie-down points, and rotatable cargo D-rings. This entry-level trim also has a multi-function remote-release tailgate, pre-wiring for a trailer, rear privacy glass, remote keyless entry, a 12-volt power outlet, two USB ports, and an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming. The SE also gets Hyundai SmartSense, a suite of advanced safety features that consists of forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, automatic high beams, rear occupant alert, and driver attention warning.
The SEL goes more upscale with remote start, heated front seats, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, proximity entry, push-button ignition, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Its driver-assist array grows with blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, and safe exit warning. It’s eligible for the loaded-up Activity Package, too, which bundles several cargo bed upgrades (including LED lights, a tonneau cover with T-slot utility tracks, adjustable tie-down cleats, and a 115V power inverter), in addition to a sunroof, roof side rails, sliding and de-fogging rear glass, a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, LED interior lighting, and a fast-juicing wireless phone charger.
This feature-rich trim inherits the amenities mentioned in the Activity Package, along with LED headlights, the class-exclusive Digital Key (which allows you to unlock, lock, and start the vehicle from your smartphone), dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and paddle shifters.
The range-topping Limited represents the height of luxury since it’s supplied with rain-sensing windshield wipers, leather-upholstered seats that are ventilated in the front row, a heated steering wheel, two second-row USB charging ports, a 10.25-inch multimedia touchscreen, integrated navigation, and a Bose audio system with eight high-end speakers. The Limited’s safety suite is rounded out with a surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control, and a live-feed blind-spot view monitor that displays footage of the vehicle’s blind spots on a screen in the gauge cluster.
