It is known that the Hyundai Santa Cruz will receive a load-bearing body and the same platform as the 2020 Tucson. Whether the Santa Cruz will have an all-wheel-drive version is still unclear. But this probability is very high, especially given the technical potential of its counterparts.

According to preliminary information, the new Hyundai pickup will feature four-cylinder engines with and without turbocharging. A hybrid version will also be available to customers. It is possible that a new version of the pickup with an aggressive body kit and a long suspension stroke will also be launched but not at the start of sales. It is worth noting that the prototype presented five years ago was equipped with a 2.0-liter 190-hp turbo diesel engine.
