Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) celebrated the launch of the all-new 2022 Santa Cruz Sport Adventure Vehicle on Tuesday, June 22, 2021. The Santa Cruz joins the Sonata and Elantra sedans and Santa Fe and Tucson SUVs on the Montgomery assembly line. This addition marks the first time HMMA has produced five vehicles at once. The highly-anticipated Santa Cruz Sport Adventure Vehicle shatters both SUV and truck segments, creating an entirely new vehicle category. The Santa Cruz features a secure, open bed area which includes a lockable tonneau cover and hidden bed storage for diverse gear-carrying flexibility. “Santa Cruz, with its bold styling, breaks open an all new segment territory, both for Hyundai and the industry as a whole. Open-bed flexibility coupled with closed-cabin security meets the changing everyday needs of its adventure-oriented buyers, while powerful and efficient engines and superb maneuverability ensure it is a pleasure to drive in urban or off-road environments. Our customers will wonder just how they managed before owning one,” said Jose Munoz, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor North America.
The new Kia Sorento - powerful, sophisticated and appealing design
Stylish and modern, the new Sorento is the flagship for the newly revitalized SUV model series from Kia, which also includes the Stonic, Seltos and Sportage as well as the only in the USA and Korea available Kia Telluride include. The brand's three design centers in Korea, Europe and North America worked closely together to design the new model. The new Sorento relies on “bold sophistication”: the designers at Kia wanted to give the robust and solid look of previous generations more elegance and make the car look a little sportier. Its body has sharply outlined lines and edges - and these make the Sorento appear significantly more muscular than the previous generations with the rounded edges. Thanks to modern geometric details and streamlined, longer proportions, the design of the new model appears more powerful, mature and appealing than ever before. The front of the Sorento shows a reinterpretation of the "tiger nose grill" typical of Kia, with a wider shape that organically surrounds the integrated headlights on both sides. The headlights themselves are equipped with LED daytime running lights, which underline the design and give the lines around the "tiger eyes" an intense expression
