Hyundai in Cruz control

THE Hyundai Santa Cruz is the Korean carmaker’s first ute, but stops short of taking on the sales gun, Toyota’s Hilux. Instead, the Santa Cruz is more of a crossover with a small tray than an unbreakable commercial. There’s still practicality at hand, though, as the Hyundai’s tray expands like an extendable dining table to offer more load space. While funky, forthright and for under 30s, the US-developed concept is yet to be signed off for production and, while welcome Down Under, isn’t what Hyundai Oz needs to cash in on our appetite for utes.
