Hyundai has reliable the Santa Cruz ute will go into prolongation for North America by 2020. Great news, right? Well, there’s no pledge it’ll make a approach Down Under.
Speaking with CarAdvice during a launch of a Santa Fe, Hyundai Australia selling director, Oliver Mann, pronounced a product isn’t indispensably right for Australia, and a association unequivocally wants a bigger ute for a market.
“Well, we might know a smaller ute concept, that is called a Santa Cruz, has been earmarked for prolongation from North America. We consider that’s a car that is too tiny for us,” Mann told us.
“We’re carefree – we consider that’s a best word we use. We’re carefree that a full-sized ute will be authorized for production, though zero is reliable during this point,” he continued.
A bigger application has been on a Hyundai Australia wish list arm, and a internal arm is constantly requesting vigour for a business box to be approved, though it’s now hamstrung by prolongation capacity.
