Upgrades in the 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz
The entry point of Santa Cruz has been increased by a little over a thousand dollars. However, Hyundai justifies this pricing with additions such as a standard blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert. A 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system is now offered in all trims up to SEL Premium. This Premium model gains advanced voice-recognition software, adaptive cruise control, and automatic matching with the posted speed limit. Mojave and Ice White have been replaced by California Sand and Atlas White as the primary paint options on the menu.
