Try this pair of digitally rendered photos, which present us what a Hyundai Creta-based pickup truck would possibly seem like
In April 2021, Hyundai took the wraps off its first-ever pickup truck – Santa Cruz. Hyundai Santa Cruz relies on the new-generation Tucson, and is slated to go on sale within the US market quickly. The Hyundai pickup received’t be out there within the Indian market, because the demand for them isn’t too excessive, however wouldn’t or not it’s good if Isuzu D-Max had a rival in our market?
Digital artist Kleber Silva has created a digitally rendered mannequin of a Hyundai Creta-based pickup truck. The car takes lots of design parts from the Santa Cruz, particularly noticeable within the aspect and rear profile. The entrance fascia of the car stays unchanged over the Creta; we see the identical cascading entrance grille, a pair of vertically cut up headlamps, and a silver-finished skid plate on the entrance bumper.
On the sides, we see silver-finished ORVMS (with built-in flip indicators), black cladding on the wheel arches and beneath the doorways, body-coloured door handles, and a set of pretty machine-cut alloy wheels (identical ones because the Santa Cruz). The rear portion of the Creta has been stretched so as to add a loading mattress.
The tailgate has the identical design because the Santa Cruz, with T-shaped LED taillights and a blacked-out rear bumper with built-in steps on the sides. A Hyundai emblem has been added within the centre, together with a daring ‘CRETA’ badge slightly below it. The car additionally will get fake roof rails, a shark-fin antenna, and a roof-mounted spoiler with an built-in cease lamp.
There’s a further cease lamp on the tailgate as nicely, simply above the tailgate launch. We fairly like this Creta-based pickup truck idea, and hope that Hyundai is taking notes! Contemplating the recognition of the Creta SUV, we imagine Hyundai would possibly discover lots of takers for its pickup truck model as nicely, if it had been to be launched in our market.
As for Hyundai Creta, it’s priced from Rs. 9.99 lakh to Rs. 17.37 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Within the Indian market, its chief opponents are Kia Seltos, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross, Renault Duster, and Nissan Kicks, together with the upcoming Skoda Kushaq and Volkswagen Taigun.
