Hyundai Santa Cruz 2023 Price in Pakistan, Features, Specs. It’s up for dispute whether the 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz counts as a proper pickup truck, but there’s less disagreement over its unique appearance and practical cargo box. The Hyundai can tow a maximum of 5000 pounds. There are mid-size trucks that can handle mud and rugged terrain better, but the Santa Cruz isn’t attempting to pass like one of those irate-looking, trail-eating, jobsite mule pickups. Consider it as a little Hyundai Tucson with a truck bed instead. After all, the vehicles’ platforms and drivetrains are similar.

A weak 191 horsepower four-cylinder and a 281 horsepower turbo-four that is an option both power the Santa Cruz’s performance. The stronger engine is only compatible with all-wheel drive; it is only offered with the top two trim levels. The stronger engine is available with either front- or all-wheel drive. The SEL Premium and Limited offer the best technology and the nicest interiors, but they forego a greater number of physical controls in favour of less practical touchscreen buttons and are significantly more expensive than the less expensive variants. However, the 2023 Santa Cruz stands out for striking a mix between usability and enjoyable driving characteristics.
In Pakistan, the Hyundai Santa Cruz will be released in 2023. The 2.5L Inline-4 Gasoline engine in the Hyundai Santa Cruz produces 191 horsepower and 181 lb/ft of torque. It sports an 8-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. The specifications, features, and Hyundai Santa Cruz Price in Pakistan are all unofficial; however, they will be revised upon the official launch.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo:
One of the best interiors among mid-size trucks is found inside the Santa Cruz. Hyundai has developed a reputation for producing cars with stylish materials and in-demand contemporary amenities that would fit in perfectly with more expensive models. We like that it has a conventional shifter on the centre console rather than a fussy rotary knob or push-button configuration because it is the first truck in its class to provide a fully digital gauge cluster.
The Santa Cruz is only available with a four-door crew cab, and passenger space in the front and back is comparable to that of comparable-sized trucks. Its cargo bed, at about four feet long, is one of the shortest in the segment, but it’s very versatile, with a lockable tonneau cover and a useful in-bed trunk similar to what the Honda offers.
What’s New for 2023?
The Santa Cruz hasn’t seen any significant alterations for the 2023 model year. The starting price of Hyundai’s base SE grade has gone up by $1010 to $26,745. Although those driving aids weren’t even available on the SE last year, it now comes standard with a blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert, which should lessen the blow of the price increase. The 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system making its way down to the SEL Premium is among the other alterations to the kit (previously it was reserved for the Limited trim).
The SEL Premium, however, now boasts adaptive cruise control with GPS-based curve control, more sophisticated speech recognition software, and the capacity to automatically match the posted speed limit. Atlas White and California Sand, respectively, have taken the place of the paint colours Ice White and Mojave Sand. There is a new Night model of the Santa Cruz for people who prefer a rather sinister appearance. Its 20-inch black rims, dark grille, and black-painted door handles, mirror caps, and side steps give it a distinctive look. However, the Santa Cruz is barely menacing even in this attire.
There are five trim levels and a variety of amenities available for the Santa Cruz. According to us, the SEL Premium is the best option. It has a more potent engine and finer equipment, including standard all-wheel drive, in contrast to the inferior SE and SEL. On lower trims, the system is a $1500 option. The SEL Premium includes a 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and enhanced voice commands as well as standard LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and adaptive cruise control with GPS-based curve control.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance:
There are two different powerplant options available for the Santa Cruz. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque is the base configuration. However, this entry-level engine is better avoided given the sluggish acceleration it gave the Tuscon crossover we tested. A 2.5-liter turbocharged four with 281 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque makes up the improved engine.
With its increased power and snappier reactions, the Santa Cruz is much more suited to it. Both engines are compatible with eight-speed automatic transmissions, but only the turbocharged engine’s dual-clutch variant. Both four-cylinder engines also come with an all-wheel drive option. The Santa Cruz is easier to manoeuvre in town because it is lower and shorter than its category rivals. The truck’s smooth ride and nimble handling were on display in the top-of-the-line Limited variant we rode.
Towing and Payload Capacity:
Although the unibody Santa Cruz can’t tow as much as body-on-frame rivals like the Jeep Gladiator and Toyota Tacoma, it can pull just as much as the Ridgeline, the only other unibody in this class. Both trucks have a 5000-pound towing capacity, but the Hyundai has a more powerful turbocharged engine. The standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine can only tow 3500 pounds.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG:
The 2023 Santa Cruz is rated at 22 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway when equipped with the base engine and front-wheel drive. The addition of all-wheel drive reduces the highway figure by 1 mpg. The turbocharged version is rated at 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. A turbocharged Santa Cruz returned 30 mpg highway on our 75-mph fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen. Visit the EPA’s website for more information on the Santa Cruz’s fuel economy.
Connectivity and infotainment
Hyundai equips its pickup truck with a modern infotainment system that includes a standard 8.0-inch touchscreen or an optional 10.3-inch touchscreen. However, we believe the company made a mistake by omitting any physical controls. Along with wireless device charging, the Santa Cruz supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Those looking for a more powerful stereo can opt for the eight-speaker Bose sound system. Users can start the truck, lock and unlock doors, and do other things remotely via the Internet, various apps, and even Amazon Alexa with Hyundai’s Blue Link services, which are free for three years.
The Santa Cruz comes standard with a driver-attention warning system and an adaptive cruise control system that is optional. Visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites for more information on the Santa Cruz’s crash-test results. The following are important safety features:
- Forward collision warning and automated emergency braking are standard features.
- Lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assistance are standard.
- Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are standard features.
Warranty and Maintenance Protection
Hyundai, along with its corporate counterpart, Kia, has long provided one of the industry’s best warranty plans, with particularly noteworthy powertrain coverage. In addition, unlike mainstream competitors such as Toyota, the company provides complimentary scheduled maintenance.
- The warranty is valid for five years or 60,000 miles.
- The powertrain warranty is valid for ten years or 100,000 miles.
- Free maintenance is provided for three years or 36,000 miles.
