Everything New in the 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz 

With most of the features of the 2022 model having been carried over to the latest lineup, not many changes have been made to the Santa Cruz. Hyundai completely justifies the increase in the price of the entry-level SE trim by offering a standard blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. All models up to the SEL Premium feature a 10.3-inch infotainment touchscreen. The SEL Premium gets adaptive cruise control with GPS-based curve control, automatic matching with the posted speed limit, and advanced voice-recognition software.
