It’s been nearly four years that the Hyundai revealed their first pickup truck concept,’ the Hyundai Santa Cruz.’
Hyundai motors have been one of the most trusted and reliable brands in the international markets and Nepali auto market.
Hyundai is trying to pass in the American pickup market, and Santa Cruz is one of their initial moves to make their mark.
Luc Donckerwolke, the head of Hyundai Motors, said that the models are finally under development.
Hyundai Motors is well prepared to bring their first pick up the vehicle during the first quarter of 2021.
In 2015, Hyundai first revealed Santa Cruz at the Auto Show, held in Detroit, America. The Santa Cruz is an upcoming four-door compact pickup truck loaded with some premium features.
And finally, in 2020, Hyundai premium pickup the Santa Cruz is now in preparation.
The company hasn’t given much detail about Santa Cruz; however, we manage to bring up some vehicle information.
Aesthetics And Design
Hyundai named their new upcoming Santa Cruz as a ‘Cross over truck’ made for those customers with an active lifestyle.
The final finished specs and outlooks have still kept under wraps; its trial product has been spied during test runs.
The Concept design of Santa Cruz has been slightly changed as the brand design language has evolved through all these years.
The vehicle will feature a prominent cascading radiator grille and a split headlamp, perfectly matched with the current design flow.
The production of body indications will not be as aggressive as displayed in the Auto show. The final product is expected to have a different outlook, given more importance on style.
The name Santa Cruz is inspired by its very own top model, the Hyundai Santa Fe. By looking at Santa Cruz looks and design, the company may target the youth among its buyers.
The pickup’s initial body concept was based on the unibody frame. Still, after the report announced by Hyundai Australia CEO John Kett, Cruz’s final body will be made on a ladder frame.
Currently, the Hyundai Cruz is being tested in various parts of Korea. It is being said that the upcoming Hyundai’s Santa Cruz will be loaded with multiple latest features.
