The all-new 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz just came out, but this exciting Sport Adventure Vehicle is already the proud owner of several auto industry awards — including a Best Pickup Truck honor from the Washington Automotive Press Association.
To decide on an award winner, the WAPA tested more than 20 trucks at its recent Fall Rally in Maryland. The Santa Cruz excelled, impressing judges with its combination of fun-to-drive performance, open-bed design, and high-value features.
“While Hyundai refers to their new Santa Cruz as a Sport Adventure Vehicle, some consumers will think of it as a right-sized pickup truck that fits their everyday lifestyle,” said William West Hopper, president emeritus of WAPA. “Plus, it’s a blast to drive, which is which is why the members of the Washington Automotive Press Association chose it as a winner for the 2021 WAPA Fall Rally category of Best Pickup Truck.”
The Santa Cruz delivers the comfort of an SUV and the utility of a truck. Its 4-foot bed features lockable storage, a remote-release tailgate, and an available integrated tonneau cover. The comfortable, connected interior seats five and offers an optional 10.25-inch touch screen. Meanwhile, available HTRAC and two responsive powertrains give the Santa Cruz a performance edge.
