The above Image is a Crossover utility vehicle ( CUV ) showcased by the top car brand Hyundai in the currently running Detroit Motor Show 2015. Hyundai Santa Cruz is its name and now it joins the party of CUVs ( Crossover utility vehicles).
Talking to the Media, the real happy man from Hyundai Motors America – Mr Dave Zuchowski said “The emerging truck markets are very demanding, to fulfil their needs we have brought this car”. Hyundai wants the 5-seat Santa Cruz to appeal to “millennialists”.
Mr Mark Dipko, the Director of Hyundai Motors America corporate planning said, “These are the 2nd biggest group of car buyers targeted for people who dwell in urban areas and we call this population “urban adventurers” and this car satisfies their need for their urban expression”
So what’s special about this cross-over truck so called “CUV”?
