Judging by the shots of the body of the South Korean truck that appeared on the Internet, the Hyundai Santa Cruz will be much like other brand models. The start of sales is expected in 2021.

Hyundai has been aggressively touting its new Santa Cruz pickup truck lately. Photographs of the first such model in the brand’s history were published back in February of this year – the pictures showed a prototype of the novelty, the body of which was completely covered with camouflage film. Foreign designers immediately made their renderings on the truck, and took “spy” photos from tests of the test version of the pickup as the basis.

 Now, the publications have got somewhere an image on which the entire truck body is captured. This photo of a South Korean novelty gives us a clearer picture of how the Hyundai pickup will look – at least its side profile.

 So, the car will receive a rather short loading platform, as well as an inclined C-pillar, which we first saw on the previously presented concept.

In general, the body shape of the production version of the previously presented Santa Cruz concept is almost completely preserved and this is actually not so bad. Some new elements have also been added. For example, look at the “crease” in the passenger door, it is very similar to the one used on the updated Elantra.

 It is known that Hyundai will establish mass production of a Santa Cruz pickup truck at its plant in Alabama (USA). They will also collect the Santa Fe crossover, as well as the Sonata and Elantra sedans. There are no other details about the new product yet, but we know that the new pickup will be sold exclusively in the US market. The expected start of sales is 2021.
