Despite the unique design, there something familiar with the styling. And there is a reason to it. The similar look and styling has been used by the Ridgeline, from Honda, but if you want to take a closer and more detailed look to both of them, you will spot the differences. The new 2018 Hyundai Santa Cruz has greater features, more luxurious and exclusive comfy interior cabin, and also more impressive on the road performance.

Although Hyundai hasn’t made any official statement about this design to be implemented in their upcoming 2018 model, it is safe bet to consider that Hyundai is finally doing something about it – and they are going to use the concept for the actual production.
