Midsize Pickup — Hyundai Santa Cruz
With the comfort and features of a crossover and the utility of a small pickup truck, the Hyundai Santa Cruz brings a fresh choice to the crowded SUV segment in what Hyundai refers to as a Sport Adventure Vehicle. The Santa Cruz is easily identified by its stylish front end that features signature lighting hidden in the grille that only becomes visible when the vehicle is turned on. The Santa Cruz’s truck bed is not long — about four feet — although for many consumers that is more than enough length and space for trips to the nursery or for hauling muddy cargo that might otherwise mar the interior. In addition to its trucklike bed, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz has additional lockable in-bed storage that functions like a trunk — hidden, watertight and secure.
