What Engines Does the Santa Cruz Have?

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz is available with two powerful and efficient engine options. The entry-level Santa Cruz features a 2.5-liter direct-injected in-line four-cylinder engine coupled with an 8-speed hydraulic automatic transmission. This duo allows for quick acceleration times and outstanding efficiency on the road all while producing over 190 horsepower and more than 180 pound-feet of torque.

Drivers looking for an even bigger boost of power on the road can opt for a Santa Cruz model fitted with a 2.5-liter direct-injected turbocharged engine with more than 275 horsepower and over 310 pound-feet of torque on tap. This turbocharged engine option is mated with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission which equips the Santa Cruz with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

2022 Santa Cruz Towing Capability

The entry 2.5-liter engine allows drivers to tow up to 3,500 pounds of cargo on the road, making equipped models the perfect match for weekend getaway gear. Drivers who are looking to tow larger and heavier items will want to opt for a Santa Cruz model fitted with the 2.5-liter turbo engine and all-wheel drive, as these models offer up to 5,000 pounds of towing capability.
