Turbocharged versus naturally-aspirated – you probably know where to bet your money on.

When the Hyundai Santa Cruz finally made its global debut this year, it wasn’t exactly the first unibody truck in North America. Honda has been selling its own non-ladder-frame truck, the Ridgeline, and it’s been on the market since the mid-2000s.

That’s why when the Santa Cruz entered the scene, people are comparing the first non-commercial Hyundai pickup to the Honda truck. That’s despite the fact that the Honda is bigger and heavier, something that became evident with the matchup featured in this article.
