What are the Changes in the 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz? 

The entry point of the Santa Cruz is now costlier by a few thousand dollars. However, Hyundai justifies this pricing with standard assistance additions such as a blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert. Meanwhile, all models up to the SEL Premium get a 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system. This Premium trim also gains advanced voice-recognition software, automatic matching with the posted speed limit, and adaptive cruise control.
