Hyundai Santa Cruz named Best Compact Truck for 2022 by AutoTrader

One of Canada's most comprehensive automotive awards program recognizes the Hyundai Santa Cruz Sport Adventure Vehicle as best-in-class

Markham, Ont. (November 16, 2021) -- Since it arrived to Canadian showrooms in late-summer, the Hyundai Santa Cruz has been impressing customers with its bold design, multi-utility features, manoeuvrability, and efficiency. For these reasons and more, Hyundai's first Sport Adventure Vehicle has been named the Best Compact Truck by AutoTrader for its annual awards program in Canada.

Winners of the 2022 AutoTrader Awards are determined by over 20 expert AutoTrader automotive journalists from all over Canada, who evaluate all 2022 model year vehicles according to 12 key criteria, with all winners being vehicles the judges would recommend to Canadian consumers without hesitation.

"The Hyundai Santa Cruz distinguished itself from its competitors with its functional capability, stand-out design and array of technology features," says Jodi Lai, editor-in-chief, "We are excited to see automotive manufacturers continue to innovate and cater to the Canada's most diverse consumer segment, and we are proud to be the entity that evaluates and recognizes their efforts while providing Canadians expert advice throughout their car-buying process."

The 2022 Santa Cruz boasts bold yet sophisticated design, powerful and efficient powertrain options, a flexible open bed for gear, cutting-edge connectivity and a highly manoeuvrable all-wheel drive platform that is equally at home in urban and adventure-focused environments. Santa Cruz provides the secure utility of a compact SUV, with its comfort, passenger space, fuel efficiency and parking ease. The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz was also recently awarded the IIHS Top Safety Pick, a recognition earned by the vehicle performing at or above in-house development performance targets.

"I would like to thank AutoTrader's judging panel for awarding us with this prize. This recognition illustrates Hyundai's commitment to listening to our customers and providing vehicles and technology that go above and beyond their expectations," says Steve Flamand, director of product and corporate strategy at Hyundai Canada. "We share this Canadian award with Hyundai's engineering and product planning experts across the globe for successfully creating a segment-leading product for the North American market."
