Hyundai Santa Cruz Convincingly Rendered In Video

Using current models and spy shots, the artist renders what the Hyundai Santa Cruz might look like.


  • Hyundai has said very little about the Santa Cruz of late.

  • The Hyundai Santa Cruz will be a close sibling to the Santa Fe SUV.

  • This video shows how the production version of Santa Cruz might actually look like.


The first Santa Cruz concept dates back to the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. We’ve seen some spy shots but beyond that, Hyundai’s kept relatively quiet about their upcoming unibody Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup.

2021 Hyundai Santa Cruz Pickup: What We Know And Don't Know

Here’s a video, created by AtchaCars, that ends with a very convincing rendering of what the Santa Cruz might look like.

The video starts of with some spy shots and a brief look at some concept images. The artist goes on the bring the vehicle to life by replacing the camouflage with actual body panels. These changes are not randomly done as they are inspired by an actual current production model, the 2021 Elantra, and the Hyundai Vision T concept.

By blending current model styling cues and the concept’s unique and advanced design elements, the artist creates a convincingly real-looking pickup. Unlike the five-year-old concept, the rendered Santa Cruz is muscular with flared wheel arches and a broad front end. The final 30 seconds or so of the video shows different colour possibilities how various lights look when activated.
