Hyundai Santa Cruz pick-up truck debuts in the USA, is based on the new Tucson SUV

The Hyundai Santa Cruz shares many of its chassis components with the Tucson but sits on a 249mm longer wheelbase.

In keeping with its more outdoorsy focus, the Santa Cruz has shorter overhangs and a wider track as well.

The Santa Cruz offers a more rugged interpretation of Hyundai's new design direction that came with the Tucson, using the same striking grille layout with the integrated DRLs and split headlamp look.

The Hyundai Santa Cruz's load bay is 1,323 mm long and features a lockable cover.

The base engine option in the Santa Cruz is the same as in the Tucson, a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol expected to make 190 hp and 245 Nm.

The Hyundai Santa Cruz goes on sale in the US later in the summer, priced at a slight premium over the Tucson.
