Fresh renderings based on the latest spy shot of the upcoming Hyundai Santa Cruz double-cab bakkie have been published online.
AtchaCars shared the renders on YouTube, drawing inspiration from a recent spy shot (published by the folks over at Motor1.com) that showed the new bakkie’s unfinished body in profile. The digital artist made sure to include the distinctive Y-shaped crease on the front door along with a raft of details (such as the C-pillar trim and wheel design).
In April 2020, a report out of the United States suggested the new unibody Santa Cruz bakkie would be offered with a choice of four-cylinder petrol engines.
Late in 2019, meanwhile, the Korean firm announced the lifestyle pickup would go into production at its assembly plant in Alabama in 2021, some six years after the original concept was revealed. It’s not yet clear whether the Santa Cruz will also be produced in right-hand drive.
Watch the video below to see the renders being created (and see the imagined bakkie in various colours)...
