And to add a cherry to the cake, the new 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz was recently awarded the best performing truck award from the fast lane truck.  

What is the new 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz SAV?  

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz is an SAV (Sports Adventure Vehicle) with a bold and unique styling that creates new segment territory. On one hand the open-bed flexibility when coupled with closed-cabin security meets the everyday needs of its adventure-oriented buyers perfectly. While the powerful and efficient engines and superb maneuverability on the other hand ensure it is a pleasure to drive in urban or off-road environments.  

“We’re honored that our Santa Cruz has won the 2022 Best Performing Truck award from The Fast Lane Truck. The Santa Cruz, with its turbocharged powertrain option, responsive transmission, HTRAC® all-wheel drive and superior maneuverability, is sure to satisfy our customers craving strong performance in an open-bed utility vehicle.”

What is the Best Performing Truck Award?  

After weeks of real-world testing and debate, the Fast Lane Truck came to a conclusion. This was that the all-new Santa Cruz was best deserving of this exclusive designation. Hyundai’s early consumer research showed that the new 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz would be the perfect Sports Adventure Vehicle. It has a safe, open bed with a lockable tonneau cover and secret storage underneath. Comfort, passenger space, fuel efficiency, and simplicity of parking are equally crucial to customers. Santa Cruz developed a completely new sector with its distinctive design that fits buyer criteria like no other car before.
