During a press conference following the debut of the facelifted Tucson, a Hyundai spokesman said the Santa Cruz pickup would be built on the basis of the facelifted Tucson.

But this information was not unambiguously confirmed in the South Korean corporation, where on Tuesday, September 15, the Motor1 portal applied with a corresponding request. Rumors that the platform of the restyled Tucson will form the basis of Santa Cruz for a long time. And this is confirmed by a photo of the body from the side in the style of parametric design – the philosophy of the latest new models of the Korean brand Hyundai.

As for the size of the upcoming Korean pickup, it is assumed that the size of the new product will be located between the Ford Ranger and Maverick models. At the same time, confusion is created by the fact that the production of Hyundai Santa Cruz will be established at the enterprise of the Korean brand in Alabama, USA, where Santa Fe is produced. Given this information, it would be logical to assume that the future pickup should unify with the Santa Fe.

In any case, the new pickup should appear in 2021. Novelty concepts are currently undergoing road tests.

In addition, it was recently noted that designers have demonstrated their own vision of how the high-performance crossover Hyundai Kona N 2021 model year can be. Disguised concepts of the novelty have already been noticed on the Nürburgring race track.
