Hyundai Santa Cruz Crossover Truck Concept

When it comes to building the perfect crossover truck, the South Korean auto makers at Hyundai aren’t typically who’d we be looking to, but we think they’re on to something with the Hyundai Santa Cruz Crossover Truck Concept.

Unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show, the vehicle is being marketed to “Urban Adventurers.” The crossover truck was built to easily maneuver in the city during the work week, but also be tough enough to hit the backcountry on the weekends. It’s powered by a 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine pumping out 190 horsepower along with 300 lb-ft of torque. The all-wheel-drive vehicle provides room for five people with plenty of space for your outdoor gear, and also boasts some pretty strong fuel economy numbers at roughly 30 miles per gallon. The vehicle’s design aesthetics are bold to say the least, sporting a a hexagonal grille paired with the honeycombed headlights and plenty of aggressive curves throughout. Watch the video below.
