The kind of promises we’ve heard and seen from auto manufacturers makes you feel like taking a ride to the future first before and seeing it all before it is even officially here. There is a lot of big talks, big ideas, and promises of big, bold and beautiful cars.
Hyundai’s Santa Cruz pick up perfectly falls in the waiting list. It has been long overdue but the silver lining is positively highlighting its coming as very soon.
The concept Hyundai Santa Cruz pick up was presented with a turbo-diesel 2.0-liter inline-four engine able to produce 190 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. The company has also hinted that the pickup will be availed in the U.S. with a 2.2-liter turbo-diesel four engines.
It will also come both as an all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive for base models. Hyundai has been growing exponentially over the years and this is well exemplified in the continuous adjustment of its design language.
As SangYup Lee, the head of Hyundai’s Global Design Center said, each new car is expected to be unique and there will be no more look-alike creations. This is a strategy that will serve the company very well into the future as consumers are continuously looking for characteristics that would set them apart.
In addition, this is a bold move by Hyundai aimed at both enlarging its portfolio as well as taking head on some brands that have dominated this segment for decades.
